    Gray’s offers the original budget-friendly meal. The sauerkraut and spicy mustard add some depth to the otherwise generic, greasy dog, making this the perfect snack after you’ve had one too many. Read more

    The classic order is the Recession Special: two dogs with everything and a drink for a grand total of $3.50. Stick to classic, mustard, sauerkraut and onions - to classic Sabrett's onion sauce.

    Gray's Papaya is fantastic! One of the gems that I miss most about New York. Best hot dog -- fact not opinion. I prefer my two with the orange drink. They even taste better at 2 am.

    One of the cheapest meals you can get in the city, and it tastes good too! Definitely get the Recession Special – two dogs and a drink for only $4.95. Bypass the $1 pizza!

    Come here if you like your papaya with inexplicable ice flakes in it. Still, don't order a Diet Coke unless you're a hawkish neocon. If you're diabetic, eat healthy instead of coming here at all. Duh.

    Are you really going to order a dollar slice at Gray's? Come on. Get a hot dog. Most of all, do NOT get a hot dog and fold it up in a dollar slice like Adam Kuban did. Read more

    Recommended meal: hot dog. The classic New Yorker's poor man's meal. Meat, starch and veg--all in a few mouthfuls. - Anthony Bourdain, host of No Reservations

    IMHO, Gray's Papaya is the best hotdog in all of NYC..followed by Nathan's and Sabret. Check this place out; you'll be glad you did : )

    Pass this place up. Tried it after a Travel Channel recommendation, but was quite disappointed. You'll get tastier dogs from a street vendor, and the juices taste like watered down sodas.

    Try the Coconut Champagne drink with your Recession Special instead of Papaya. You won't regret it.

    Hot dogs only ok- very limited toping choices for a hot dog shop. The banana drink is good. Staff not friendly.
