West Coasters no longer have to trek to New York City for the oh-so-good hot dogs from Papaya King. The 80-year-old hot dog heavyweight chain plans to open a shop in Hollywood.

Papaya King Hollywood, which will be on Wilcox just south of Hollywood Boulevard, is scheduled to open in May. And we're loving its ad campaign, "We're 100% Natural, But We Think We'll Fit in L.A. Just Fine."

Before the opening it will hype up dog lovers with the debut a Papaya King hot dog truck that will drive all over Southern California. According to Eater, the truck will be giving out complimentary hot dogs in April and May. Keep tabs on Papaya King's Facebook and Twitter to get yourself some free dogs. Julia Child once hailed Papaya King as having the "best hot dogs in New York."

But it may just end up being the best hot dogs in the country. While the focus is on opening the L.A. restaurant and truck, Papaya King also plans to expand to Nevada, Arizona and Miami.
