Beloved hot dog joint Skooby’s has closed in Hollywood after years of playing to the tourist crowd. The popular walk-up worked wonders along Hollywood Boulevard for years, before turning off the lights earlier this year. Instead, ownership has transitioned into a new concept called Cre8 Crepes.
Things seem to be going well for the new name, which opened around the beginning of May. The crepe shop carries a full five stars on Yelp so far, doling out $5 DIY crepe options that are perfect for the grab-and-go set walking by. Still, the loss of previous tenant Skooby’s is a sad one, as the hot dog spot was consistently considered to be among the best cheap eats dining destinations for the area.
All may not be lost, however. Eater reached out to Skooby’s ownership over the weekend, who confirmed the final day of service was back in late March. At that time there was talk of turning the concept over into a food truck, though more recently the idea seems to (hopefully) hinge on finding a more suitable permanent location elsewhere in the city from which to serve hot dogs. When or where that ends up happening is still very much in limbo at this time, however.
