On Saturday, I posted this photo on my Instagram account, with the caption “Pop Quiz: Where are we?”. Surprisingly, not too many people knew the answer. If you are ever in the San Fernando Valley area, you should absolutely make time for a visit to Carney’s.
In our household, this restaurant is referred to as the “Hot Dog Train”. My son loves this place, so it is always a special treat when we take him. They are known for their hot dogs, but many other options on their menu as well. We always aim for an 11am lunch because once noon comes around, the place is packed!
My favorite thing about the San Fernando Valley is finding gems like this. Carney’s is located on one of the busiest streets, Ventura Boulevard, but still seems to be hidden to the masses. As a creature of routine, I tend to stick to our normal eateries, so when we find a place as special as Carney’s, we’re almost proud to imagine this to be our little secret, even though it isn’t – especially now that I’m blogging about it!
Luckily, you can’t miss it; After all, it is bright red and yellow train in the middle of the city.
