As most people know, Anthony Bourdain loves this place after a late night out . . . it is also a great place for a quick, refreshing and cheap meal so you can keep on exploring this amazing city. Two delicious hot dogs (get the sauerkraut and onions on it) and a juice drink for $4.95. Can't beat it! The... More

Must try I should say when visiting NYC. Kids love it! Loads of option (toppings) to choose from. Very reasonable price.

We stayed at a hotel two blocks from this corner dog emporium and I had lunch several time there during the week. I love a good dog and these were great. Natural casing all-beef and grilled. I had mine with kraut and spicy mustard with a glass of pineapple-banana-peach juice. I'm bettin' they serve Papaya Dogs in Heaven!

Whenever I happen to walk by a Gray's I go in for a Pina Colada. It is cold, refreshing, and fills you up.I have no idea how many calories are in it, but who cares.I believe it is made from fresh ingredients.

It's not haute cuisine, but it is a kitschy, tourist-worthy taste of New York for every visitor to the city. Get a hot dog or two and a juice, and be entertained. It's great for a hot dog, and budget friendly too. I've been to multiple locations and have only noticed minimal differences, so take your pick and visit a... More

While in NYC visiting family, our son was perturbed that I was headed off to find a hot dog vendor for a quick snack, insisting that we must try our this place, one of his favorites. I just had a basic hotdog (there are many ways to dress it up) - and it was definitely better than the normal street... More

This place is always crowded, there are no tables, no chairs. But the hot dog... is just delicious, as well as the non alcoholic piña colada (I haven´t tried the other drinks). Be prepared to eat at least two hot dogs. The prices are very good, it´s a no frill snack bar with delicious food.

During our stay we are here twice. Nothing like a great $2 hot dog to feed a hungry family on a budget.

The hot dogs were excellent! I was unprepared for the onions to be cooked and in some type of sauce- I prefer onions on a hot dog to be raw-but that didn't interfere with the taste of the dog! I would skip the tropical drinks - too artificial.

I only eat plain hot dogs here, but they are delicious, with a snappy casing, and cheap. I just love this place, no one does hot dogs better.
