New York’s Papaya King has landed on the Strip, serving up a "magical combination" of tropical flavored drinks and hot dogs, 24 hours a day. Located in the former home of Fukuburger and Zingers at the Hawaiian Marketplace, the restaurant joins Irish pub Rock & Reilly's Las Vegas, which is now also open around the clock.

Crowned the "best hot dog in New York" by Julia Child, the brand has been an East Coast legend since 1932 and a Las Vegas resident since November 2016, when the restaurant's first expansion debuted across the street from the Hard Rock Hotel.

At the Strip location, guests can head inside for quick and casual counter service, or sit on the patio and at the outdoor bar to receive tables service and access to the full beverage and cocktail menu.

Joining "Royal Combinations" like the $7 "1932 Combo," comprised of a frank with sauerkraut, New York relish or onions, fries and a 16-ounce drink, are specialty dogs, including the $4 "C&C" topped with chili and cheddar cheese sauce. "Cluck Cluck" options of $6 chicken sandwiches, or "chicken tendies" can be combined with the "Crown Jewels" side collection including $4 tater tots, $3 knishes, $4 nachos and for dessert, $4 fried Oreos or Twinkies.

The big upgrade for this location is the alcohol menu, featuring $7 Blue Moon or Las Vegas’ own Tenaya Creek beer, $9 glasses of wine and cocktails created with their famed tropical drinks, including the $10 "Banana Blitz" and "Mango Madness." For the truly thirsty, a 64-ounce "Crown Fishbowl" is billed as the "ultimate hangover cure" priced at $25 and you get to take the fishbowl home with you.
