According to one of the guides the BEST dog in the city. It's a pretty good deal, fine for a quick bite to eat. And they're everywhere. I got mine before getting on the ferry in the terminal itself.

The drink was good (cherry) the dog I took a bite and handed it to my partner. Won’t return. Such a shame as it had been bugged up to me.

Well the papaya dog close to ESB was able to assist with a chili dog at 7am even if they opened at 8am! Very kind of the guy to help a pregnant lady with cravings! :)

In my first time visiting New York, I was really exited to taste a classic Hot Dog. A friend told me Papayas has the hot dog in town. It has a really good flavor, it's good for something fast and cheaper.
