    This relentlessly yellow hot dog joint hops 24 hours a day and is a symbol of Upper West Side cheap eats. Mustard is pretty much required; the only dilemma is choosing between the onions or the kraut.

    Over-rated. The hot dogs are small and not as flavorful as everyone makes them out to be. Value-wise: you get what you pay for.

    Friendly Filipino staff tonight! A filipino station was playing on the radio lol. Hotdogs were okay and piña colada as well as coconut champagne were a little too sweet. But I'm glad we tried it!
