You can get two hot dogs with choice of toppings and a drink for $5.00. Its a great bargain for New York City. however, dogs were sub-par. You are better off getting a dog from a cart.

Best dog in town, always perfect and consistently at it best. Everytime I visit NYC , I have a dog from Grays Papaya.
