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!

Was enjoying lobster fest last week end in Rockland. The locals were very friendly and suggested that me and my brother should check this place out. Well needless to say these hot dogs were amazing! The girls behind the counter were very friendly and even suggested some different toppings to jazz up the dog. Overall I could have ate 6... More

Was in the area 4 days and ate hotdogs here twice! Only place where I order 2 dogs at a time and have to convince myself not to eat a third! Cheap and great - a combination that is hard to beat!!

If you are a New England hot dog enthusiast, a visit to Wasses Hot Dogs should be high on your list. The sign says they have sold over 5 million, and I think this is probably well out of date. I love these unique, ma and pa owned hot dog stands that seem to flourish in Maine. At Wasses, there... More

Wasses isn't fancy--it's just a hotdog stand but these hotdogs are great. The secret is the peanut oil. Skip the fries and just get the dogs. Yum!

Hot Dogs at Wasses are amazing!!!! My wife and I each had 2 Hot Dogs with Sauerkraut, Fried Onions, & Mustard. They were delicious alright. I wish there was a Hot Dog Stand like Wasses where I reside in Virginia. Having a Hot Dog on a New England Style Bun was the perfect way to do it. Lobster may be... More

If you've had enough lobster, try Wasses for the hot dogs. Three locations in the Mid-coast of Maine, Rockland, Belfast, and Thomaston. Over 5 million hot dogs sold. You can get a dog with an assortment of toppings at the walk up windows. Eat outside at tables or in you car. Family owned and operated, the service is great and... More
