I'm not suggesting he doesn't know what he's talking about, but to say 53rd halal or S'macs is bad is nuts. As for Grey's it's just hot dogs, would you rather trust the weenies of some smelly street cart?

I agree about its better going to Little Italy than Olive Garden, but maybe some people like to take in the views. I ate a Applebee's in Times Square recently, besides the crazy prices was a pretty cool view & I've seen Times Square so many times I find it absolutely boring!

I've never heard anyone say anything negative about Grey's and there's always a long line of all sorts of people such as students, suits and so on. Everyone that I know from the area there actually eat at Grey's & like it

I think they should try it all if they get a chance. A hot dog here, a pizza there. Can't go wrong.

That cart on 53rd and 6th is legendary for all the right reasons. Well worth it. I try to go once a year.

Grey's is no better than the $1 hotdogs as The Rock (i.e. cheap as you said, and uhhh... really not good), SMAC is tasty and okay to do once, I wouldn't go back though, and I certainly wouldn't recommend a tourist with just 3 or 4 days in NYC go there!

The cart on 53rd and 6th I disagree with you hugely though. It's not significantly different from the 200 other Halal carts all over NYC. There's nothing special about it, and certainly no better than a Halal cart in Jackson Heights (where the "real" middle eastern food is). If you try to hit that cart once a year, you should just hit any other Halal cart. Some of these places get famous because they were in a movie or TV show, and then they take on a life of their own. Magnolia Bakery is another example (Sex & The City), overrated. And there's a decent cafe in my hood that is still making a healthy living off of all the women who love You've Got Mail (which also featured Gray's Papaya).

Idk man, to compare Grey's dogs to the Prudential dogs seems a little off to me. Maybe we're talking about different Grey's? I'm talking about the one in the Village, I don't think that's the one that was in that Chris Rock movie. I've had dogs there for years with their homemade juices & think they're pretty good & kinda unique.

Then again I'm kind of a fan of the nasty, greasy fast food that you'll find on something like that "diners & dives" show or whatever it's called.

Edit: Keep in mind that when I was thinking of places, I wa considering popularity & interest, so I thought a place that's been featured in several movies will be a better conversation piece than a unknown mom & pop's place with perhaps slightly better food. Mainly why I chose touristy places for the well... um, tourists

Magnolia's is hella overrated, I don't buy it and don't get it.

I've done about fifty (roughly) halal carts, and have had varying success. That one's pretty good though. They're very liberal with the sauces (don't you get to squirt your own? I love that) and their lamb is one of the tastier cuts I've had cart wise.
