This place was very close to the apartment we were staying in and we kept walking by it. Eventually we decided to give it a try, the prices are reasonable, and the hot dog was solid (not bad, not incredible). The highlight for me was...More

Had their recession special with sauerkraut and onions, with a papaya drink. Super tasty and well worth the price. Accessible enough for me on a wheelchair. That papaya juice was a good surprise. Went amazing with the hot dog. Can’t wait to return!

So it's a passable dog, though Ikea do better, and cheap in NYC terms but I draw the li e at eating next to a homeless guy on his crack pipe inside the place

Having read about this place for many years we were not disappointed with our visit. It’s cheap food, standing room only and excellent hot dogs, which you can get in a variety of ways! The drinks are unusual but equally tasty. Cash only!
