When you are in New York City just look up this place and get some of the best ever hot dogs in new York. They are amazing both taste wise and above all they are so cheap. Just a bit of advice don't get just the two plus the papaya drink but get four.

We walked here from Hell's Kitchen which was a good walk so we were very hungry. We ordered the combo's for both of us. The hot dogs themselves were decent, Maybe I should have just ordered plain with mustard or something but i opted for kraut which overpowered the taste. My girlfriend ordered the chili topping which again wasn't great either.

However I am giving an extra "star" rating for their juices. Some of the best and freshest we have ever tasted. Ice cold as well, it was burning hot everywhere especially inside so to have these juices this cold was amazing. We weren't dying of thirst either we had a good amount of water in tow with us so this definitely wasn't the thirst talking.

Overall I would like to try this place again if anything for the juices but I do take blame for adding the toppings and considering this place is cheap it deserves a rewind from us.

How anyone can pass Gray's without salivating is beyond me.It is a NYC landmark of our city's hotdog, and it shouldn't be missed by any self-professed foodie, high-brow, low-brow or no-brow.

The service is quick. The dogs are amazing. Thank God they are open 24/7. Anytime I feel hungry, I just head over. Try their delicious drinks as well. ALL are good. They are fair priced to top it off. What a treat. Enjoy. 72st and Amsterdam Avenue.

We went here as it is an iconic place in New York, but the hot dog really wasn't anything special. There isn't much you can do to a hot dog to make it great though, so if you are going to have a hot dog in NY (which you should!) it might as well be here.
