New Yorkers got hooked on their first taste of the tropical juice treats consisting of strawberry shakes and coconut drinks mixed with Papaya Juice back in 1932. After introducing frankfurters to the menu in 1937, business exploded. Legend has it that a famous player from the Brooklyn Dodgers became addicted to the combo and coined the name "Papaya King." The very first Papaya King location on 86th street and 3rd Avenue in Manhattan that opened in 1932 still stands today. Zagat restaurant review says Papaya King is "More vital than the subway." In New York, that's saying something!
