    I thought this was the real hot dog. I was a little disappointed.

    When you need something quick before, during, or after a night out, nothing beats a Gray's Papaya hot dog. Great snap.

    No matter what time of day it is, their juicy two-buck frank will take you back to the summer when you had your first.

    Favorite Gray's Papaya. Hands down! Hot dog is snappy, savory, & the perfect meat:bun ratio. Get the recession special with delicious pina colada.

    Great $5.49 special two #hotdog and a juice but go only with sauerkraut, onion, ketchup and mustard! Don't do the chili, like I do!

  • Hey P.

    Mhm, this is a good spot. Not on the popular side of Manhattan but it makes good business. The nice thin dogs on the buns! Mm, that's good! Good deals, good food. Just that it has no where to sit. :(

    This place serves a need, and that is post-midnight cravings. 2 well-done dogs with mustard, eaten in shame by the window, please.

    Simplicity at it's best, folks. Pretty much defines a NYC hot dog for me. Snappy, flavorful, simple, highly affordable, and quick. So how can you say bad things about GP?

    Arie · June 12, 2015
  • Iro P.

    Recession special. Don't let the price fool you, they are Awesome !!! griddle dogs with their natural casing, so different than carts (boiled) or shake shack (cut).

    The remainder of what once was a city-wide institution. 2 dogs and a drink for under $5. Well prepared dogs and signature fruit juices. Good cheap meal in an overly expensive city.
