This place is a classic dive, in the best possible way! Little roadside shack right on Rte 1. The line circles around the place on the inside. There is a sign with instructions for ordering: number of dogs wanted, and choice of 2 versions-the House Special & Loaded. No ketchup allowed unless you're a kid. :) The lady doing all... More

Worth the stop for a hot dog! Make sure you get there early as it is a busy place. Good dogs that are steamed. It has been there for years and always a long line so you know it must be good!!

You have to try it to believe it! Always a line, take it and go. Made to order. Famous for 60 years. A must try, but I warn you may get addicted.😉

Flo's has been a fixture on Route 1 in Cape Neddick halfway to forever. It is one of those must do, iconic eateries (like Ted's in Meriden CT, Rutt's Hut in Clifton NJ and the Anchor Bar in Buffalo NY). Just go and enjoy. Don't bother ripping the dogs or the way they are presented. Nobody cares. You go for... More

This was our first meal and destination upon arrival in Maine, and I was relieved that we got there by 2 pm. I was following a guidebook that rated Flo's highly while also revealing that the place looked like a shed so we had expectations for a true Maine experience. Fortunately there was not a line wrapping around the place... More

I wish that people could keep some perspective when reviewing Flo's, and make sure to have actually eaten there. I just brought my kids there after an 18 year hiatus, and I would not have missed taking them there for anything. We went on a Thursday in July, arriving at about 11:20. There was a short line inside. We ordered... More

After driving my this place many times over the years we finally decided to stop and check it out. Essentially you get an overpriced, small, poor quality hotdog with good toppings. Got the House Special. The toppings were very good which somewhat made up for the lack of a quality dog. Customer service is definitely lacking. 25 mins for a... More

First started going to Flo's in the mid-70's, looooong before the days of Trip Advisor. Went back recently for a follow up and the only thing that has changed is that "Flo" is no longer around. The dogs are still cooked to order, the hot sauce hasn't changed, and Flo's daughter in law has kept up the high standards set... More

Here is the key. Line up. Don't hold the door open. When Gail asks you how many, just say the number. Later she will ask you for what you want on them, that is the second time you are allowed to talk. Don't ask for ketchup. Pay cash.
