They have great prices for a quick bite to eat. We got a hot dog and a smoothie, and it was awesome! 2 hotdogs for $3 and we shared the smoothie.

We really like to eat a couple of hot dogs at Gray's Papaya on the upper westside. In my opinion the best hot dog in NYC. We always get the recession special which includes two hotdogs and a papaya drink. The price is ridiculously cheap for New York and is delicious. I like sauerkraut on mine. If you like hot dogs, don't miss Gray's Papaya in NYC.

A true NYC experience, Gray's Papaya is the place you go to feel like a real New Yorker just living life. Get the "Recession Special" with kraut and onions with papaya juice and you will have completed a culinary life experience! I love this place and it's a much do!

The difference between Papaya dogs and the ones sold at the streets is just a big difference.. try the papaya water it's really good too.. and cheap eats.

I went on a trip to New York and eating a traditional hotdog was on my check list. Many people recommended this place, but it was very disappointing.
