Gray's Papaya Restaurant Review

: This popular New York hot dog stand may lure you in for its cheap prices but the hot dogs are really quite good. There are no tables at this no-frills spot, only standing counters against the walls. The "Recession Special," which includes two franks and a medium drink for $6, is the go-to order for many. Wash it all down with a tropical fruit drink (the banana daiquiri and piƱa colada are favorites). Be sure to bring cash, as credit cards are not accepted.
