How inexpensive!

Ok, there's a reason why Gray's Papaya's hot dog was ranked number one by Time Out New York in 2006. I never believed it until I've been there the first time in the late 90's.

Since then, not much has changed which is good. The hot dogs are served with Sauerkraut and if you want, you can get a papaya drink. This is where the name of the restaurant comes from.

Be honest, you can get a hot dog plus drink für about 6 dollars. That's very inexpensive for New York standards, right?

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

Well, it's no Costco ($1.50 for a hot dog AND a large soda!), but it is New York, so yes, $6 for a hot dog and a papaya drink is a heck of a deal!  I love that it's open 24/7, too.  I'll have to remember to check this out the next time I'm in town!  By the way, something tells me that you'll get a kick out of this danger dog review in my Gourmand community (which I would love for you to join!).  Thanks for the heads up on this, Walt! :)
