Super yummy, super expensive

These are THE BEST hot dogs I've ever had. They would get five stars if it didn't cost something like $6-8 for a "specialty" hot dog. That's a little steep for something that won't even fill me up.

As far as a good dog goes this is the place to get the best! Nicely grilled, with all kinds of signature dogs to choose from. It does not matter what age you are, Wasses has a fresh dog for you!

I had a chili dog much different then what I am use to in PA. It was good but expected better. The French fries were good.

We followed our noses to these awesome hot dogs and were not disappointed! Very tasty and the. Line moves rapidly. We were visiting an antique store around the block when we smelled them and asked the locals if they were as good as they smelled and they assured us they were. We both got the loaded hotdogs without the relish... More

Our annual family reunion is during Lobster Festival and we always stop by Wassas Hot Dogs during the parade or sneak away from family fun to do a Wassas run.

Every year when we come home to Maine to visit, we get WASSES! Always great. The best hot dogs. My usual is 2 dogs with onions, mustard, ketchup on the steamed buns. The buns are awesome.

Never had grilled onions on a hot dog. Now, I can't imagine any way else! I had one with grilled onions and mustard and the other with baked beans, grilled onions, bacon. We shared an order of fries and a couple of drinks. We walked over to the small green across the street, sat on the bench and looked out... More

There always seems to be a line but service at the window is pretty fast. These hot dogs come on a grilled New England style roll to which we added mustard, relish and grilled onions. The quality and flavor were very good and you can count on them being fresh.

Eat here 13 years ago and like hot dogs. These ae very different because they are pork and beef dogs. If you like a different dog and like grilled onion get one or two.

Likely no local has not dined at Wasses! "Decadent Dogs", the name my family uses to refer to Wasses. Always consistent, dependable and as anticipated. They keep it simple but great!
