I'm not sure why there's always such a long line here. The drinks are real, fresh, and tasty but they are expensive and they come in a tiny cup which you finish in about 3 sips. The hot dogs are gross -- seriously, I'd rather throw an Oscar Meyer wiener in the microwave and eat that! I told them I wanted everything on my dog and it came with practically nothing but sweet onions. The curly fries were probably good, but I wouldn't know since mine were soggy and old. PASS

I went to the store on 33rd & 5th Ave. and tried one of their Papaya drinks. It was simply loaded with sugar.

I'm frequently in a rush and want food that fills, tastes good, and doesn't take long to acquire. Papaya King is perfect for these needs. I highly recommend the original special (two hot dogs and a drink, I prefer Papaya) for under $5. It's the best at what it does: providing good, cheap, efficient food. Better than Gray's Papaya and other imitators.

A place with history, and everybody says, when you stay at the Upper East Side, you must at least eat there once. Well, I did that tonight, and I will come back soon. The hot dogs taste great (especially the house sauce), but I really enjoyed the atmosphere. You see all different kind of people coming and going, some having a quick bite, others staying longer. Just go there, you won't regret it! One word to the service, which has been critiqued a lot here- come on, it's a hotdog place. And the food is great value for money (hotdog < 2 USD), so I can live with that.

You can take every high priced, fancy pants restaurant in NY and throw it right out the window, two of these babies grilled to perfection with spicy mustard and a banana daquiri is Upper Eazy Foodie's definition of culinary genius and perfection.

i grew up right down the street from this place and i still love the dogs and drinks. 27 years and counting, this is my favorite destination for a cheap, quick bite.
