    Dawgs not good enough for dogs

    Came here twice on Groupons ordering 2 well done hot dogs each time—one with chili, one with peppers and onions, once with a coke, the other time coconut drink. The dawgs here are pretty bad. I guess customers keep coming for the toppings, which are OK. But they are way way overpriced. If not for Groupon I’d never have eaten there. Their rolls were hard and stale. The coconut drink was like everything else—tasteless, probably from being over-diluted. Bourdain likes PK, so I should’ve known. The final insult: they collected $0.62 tax on both occasions.

    just $2 gets you the best

    Usually you pay more for the best but not with hotdogs. Should I pay $5 to wait 10 minutes while a trendy place undercooks an overly large squishy baloney-tasting dog? Or $2 for a well browned juicy spiced dog with snap? And like any proper NYC joint they lead with real brown mustard not that sweet yellow kiddie stuff.

    Best Hot Dogs Anywhere

    No other hot dog in the city comes close to these.

    This is the best papaya king location, in my opinion. I've been going there for the past five or six years, since I discovered them. The hot dogs are always amazing. I love when they are well done

    For what it is, it's Great!

    This is a cheap hotdog place. There are a lot of "Papaya" like dog places around the city, and they pretty much serve the same dogs. I personally like two with cheese and a soda. Not too big on the juices, but they're pretty good. You'll eat your dogs in about 30 seconds, because the only reason to go here is when you're on the move and hungry. You'll probably find yourself slamming one down over a garbage can or on the street corner, which can only add to the fragrance and taste of these cheap New York dogs...

    Best in NY

    When you talk Hot Dogs in NY you must mention PK. "Two with onions on a cold roll please" If I had a dollar for every time I've said that... The Best Hotdog in Mahattan. I should know I have two hotdogs as pets
