close to a campfire hot dog – The hot dogs are the closest thing I've had to a campfire hot dog short of going camping. You definitely get your money's worth -drinks included. What they lack in seating they make up for in quality, but if you're looking for a grab and go meal this is perfect.

Nothin' Betta – Take the best stadium dog, dirty water dog and even one from those guys out in Coney Island. Roll them together and still it doesn't come close to a Gray's Papaya. Order one any way you like and you'll understand the attraction and the loyalty!

Come for the hot dogs, stay for the... – ... hot dogs. Really what more is there to say about this place. U plop down ur $2.45 and pick up ur 2 dogs and a papaya. Quick, easy, tasty, and painless. It's as simple as that. Oh and try the bananna daquiris, thems good drinkin.

Best (cheapest) hot dogs in town – You must make a stop at one of the Gray's Papaya's around the city during your stay. The dogs are cheap but that isn't what makes them the best! Great juices as well. If you go after 2am be ready to wait in quite a line. But don't let this stop you from waiting - it never takes long with those guys behind the counter.

2 with onion + papaya drink. Mmmm – I used to stop in for lunch many a time when I was at NYU. Good and cheap, what more can you ask. Always a good place to go after hitting the bars/clubs. All you have to do is pull out whatever singles and change are in you pockets and you're good to go. I always try to make it there when I'm in the area. One of them crave things.

good thing it's 24/7 – On those late nights, after many drinks, I would stumble into this place. Hot dogs are great and cheap here.

MY MUNCHIE MISSION – The hot dogs snap when you bite 'em. The drinks are fruity and delicious. The guys behind the counter are quick and funny. If you've never gone there before, it's worth it to stop in, even if you're not hungry. West Village Saturday night drinking should ALWAYS be followed up by a Gray's Papaya hot dog. Or two. Come on, they're 75 cents each! Makes the train ride home much more bearable, and the hangover less painful...

RCKapalua – This is the place for New York hotdogs. The place is not meant for in house dining, but if you want to grab a meal on the go, this is the perfect choice.

An attraction for real New Yorkers – This is something real New Yorker's enjoy and share with select out of towners.

In and out and satisfied. – Great college meal. Two dogs and a drink for $2.45! I went here because of the movie Fools Rush in and the place was hoppin'. It is a great little slice of NYC life. The counter guys are friendly enough for the 2 seconds it takes to make the hot dog and pay. They keep things well ordered. Very good for a meal on the run.
