Hot Diggity Dog!

A family tradition to stop at Wasses on our way to Stonington. They gave our dogs free hotdogs, too!

Wasses hot dogs do not disappoint! They are cooked to perfection in peanut oil and are delicious! The local ladies that work there were so friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend you try them out! My family and I had so much fun trying out all the local restaurants and Wasses was one of our favorite stops!

This was amazing! It was my first visit to a hot dog stand and it was fabulous! I had a bacon cheese dog. The only problem is that Maine is about as far away from my home in Utah as it can get in the contiguous states, so it'll be awhile before I can have another one. I will definitely... More

I promise you that no other hotdog compares. You can smell them for miles cooking. This is family owned. All they do is hotdogs but after having one you will not be able to stop thinking about them

We have probably had hot dogs a just about every hot dog place around. No trip to Rockland can be complete without a trip to Wass's Hot Dogs. It's hard to elaborate on a hot dog but they are really that good. They are expensive for a specialty dog but we do keep it plain and simple - ketchup &... More

The steamed bun, grilled onions and your favorite toppings make for a special treat - there is a good reason for the lines (which move fast) - there dogs are simply fun to eat - we can't get past their Belfast location without stopping in. And, they make a mean hamburg - not your typical pressed burger - these gotta... More

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.
