Definitely a NYC institution and the only one left of this chain. It is a must for anyone visiting NYC. Stock up on Hot Dogs here and walk a few avenues over to get into Central Park and Strawberry Fields or. SummerStage it is definitely worth it instead of getting cart hotdogs (dirty water hotdogs).

Absolutely great dogs. Visiting here from Calif. Had a chile cheese dog...loved it. No seating and tiny inside but that's ok......great food and drinks!

best hotdogs in NYC, prices went up but *part of what they were known for* it's still a great place. it seems as if they under repairs which might be a good thing since it's always so cramped & packed full of people.

i remember when the "recession special" 2 dogs loaded and a small drink for...well i started going there when it was $1.25..when near the park on west side or on way to the Beacon Theater to see a show, this is a staple of food for me..great natural casing dogs with a smooth flavor/ spice profile...not too garlicy..won't be tasting them for the next 2 a great quick inexpensive snack? get the special, get the dogs loaded, mustard, kraut. and onions in sauce and wash it down with a papaya drink or pina colada and trust me your gonna be happy you did....

A mainstay in NYC. You really can't beat the recession special at the cost of below $5. You get 2 hot dogs and a drink. My go to is 2 dogs with kraut and a papaya shake. Great snap to the hot dog and wonderful flavor. The papaya shake was also very refreshing. Great for a quick snack or meal and a refreshing beverage especially in the summer.

Anytime I tell people I love going to Manhattan, they say "isn't it expensive?" My reply is "Not if you don't buy anything." My girlfriend and I love the city. We sit in Washington Square Park or Union Square or Madison Square Park, we'll go to the Strand and check out their books, and we often stop at Gray's Papaya for lunch. A couple dogs, some fries, and some juice only sets me back a few bones, but fills us up with some delicious food. Love this place.

recession special! :) 2 dogs and a drink. good value for good food. OK it is not frankfurter sausage you get in Germany/Austria or some eastern Europe countries.. but it is very good. and it is a MUST when you are in NY. I would only suggest them to offer plain orange juice in this special.. not only those mango-coconut-avocado-penguin-see weed mix..
