    Great dogs

    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 : )

    This place is a serious rival to Papaya Dog.

    Also a surprisingly good slice of dollar pizza on top of the notable hotdogs

    Nothing beats a dollar slice at 3 in the morning.

  • Real Cheap Eats

    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

    Recession special + orange drink open at ungodly hours w/cheap pricing #saynomore

    meh. this place seems best suited to late night, post-drinking fare

    Amanda Zamora · October 7, 2012

    This is a nice place 2 go 2 and eat a hot dog, they r the best in NYC, if not the best in the world !!!

    Best 3:00am dogs around... best part, I have no idea how much they cost.

    Jason O'Brien · May 29, 2012
  • Tony F.

    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.

    Tony Fleming · May 3, 2012

    Reception special 4.95 great deal. 2 hot dogs and a drink.

    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.

    Flynn Jones · March 28, 2012
  • Nick A.

    Meh on the pie...go to 99 cent pizza half a block south.

    Nick Amante · March 2, 2012
  • David

    Same quality as a dirty water dog off the carts, but lots more toppings and 6 fresh fruit drinks.

    David · February 11, 2012
  • M. Silver Associates

    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.

    M. Silver Associates · February 2, 2012
  • Serious E.

    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

    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!

    Last of the great Hot Dog & Juice joints. Don't miss the cool & often strangely phrased quotes & slogans.

    When did a dog with kraut become a 2 dollar item???

  • Stefanie M.

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