“Really good fast food - Wonderful Mexican ice pops - Paletas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

The tater tots will knock you out -- they're wonderful. Worth the visit. And leave room for the best Mexican ice pops -- Paletas -- with incredible flavors and made from real fruit.

“Think gourmet White Castle. Truly amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

This is no ordinary hotdog joint. This is a hidden gem with the best sliders I have ever tasted. I'm a cook so I watched carefully. The onions are placed on fresh raw chop meat, then flipped onions and all, the cheese and bun are steamed into the meat and it all forms a masterpiece. The girl that took my order was a cutie pie too! I shall return.

“Grrreat!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

Joe's Papaya is an unassuming take out place in Elmsford serving up some of the tastiest fast food. Burgers are small in size, but big on taste. Cheeseburgers have the cheese infused in the burger. You have the option to have grilled onions infused also. The burgers are then steam-grilled and placed on a soft, potato bun. Your taste buds will be screaming with joy! Add one of the best knishes north of Coney Island (with brown mustard, of course) for a classic combination. The knishes are finished on the grill and are so good! Other foods include grilled franks, tater tots, papaya drinks, and paletas, a type of frozen dessert on a stick similar to froze-fruit. The only drawback to Papaya Joe's is the fact that the town of Greenburgh hasn't issued them a permit to allow for eating in the restaurant (all business is to go.)
