Veteran funnyman Carl Reiner has been honoured with his own hot dog at his favourite Los Angeles diner.

The Ocean's Twelve star learned all about his meaty treat during an appearance on Queen Latifah's U.S. talk show on Friday (17Oct14) after confessing the long lines outside Pink's hot dog stand have put him off going there recently.

Pink's owners Gloria and Beverly Pink announced Reiner's favourite dog, a mustard and sauerkraut snack, has been added to their menu as the Carl Reiner Hot Dog.

Reiner recalled picking up hot dogs for just five cents when Pink's first opened. His new signature dog costs $4.75 (£2.95).

He said, "This is the biggest honour I've ever gotten in my entire life."
