I like this Papaya King far better than the one on the west side. The papaya juice is better at this one. I love the hot dogs as well. The service is not always great but if you ask and you are bring home quart size papaya juice they will let the foam settle and fill it to the top.

Though a little pricier than the Gray's Papaya on 6th Ave that I frequent, best hot dog you'll ever get, hands down!

You have to try the pina colada juice drink and the hot dogs are excellent. If you're in the mood for a calorie splurge grab some chili cheese curly fries! It's a stop buy joint so don't look for a place to sit and enjoy... Bring a big bag to sneak food into the movies or head home!

The hot dogs here are on par with other places such as Gray's and 14th Street Papaya, with one big difference .. they charge almost double the price. I am not sure why that is, especially for the area it is in, you would think it is the same 1$ per dog that it is at all other places. I don't know why that is, as they are no better then other places, but I will not go back since they must think their dogs are filet mignon filled. Keep paying these prices and they just go up and up and up. .. I mean .. it is a hotdog not steak on a bun.

I am not a big hot dog person, but I can't walk past this place without stopping in. The hot dogs are SOOOO good. You have to make sure you have at least 5 minutes because I have never been to this place when there has not been a line. The service isn't the friendliest and they only have a small counter to lean on (no seating). Also, charge extra for to go orders without mentioning, but just a few cents. Trust me, the dogs are worth it. I owe them my gym membership.

Visiting NYC and had heard about Papaya King on the Travel channel. Definitely not worth it. Shakes were poor, service matched the shakes. Hot dogs just o.k. Disappointing!

A truly unique NYC institution. The papya juice is great, but can sometimes be a bit on the watery side. The hot dogs, and the sauces, are fantasticly tasty.
