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

Good stop for the whole family. Plenty of different hot dogs on the menu. The westerner is very good. Service friendly and quick and priced so reasonable for a lunch.

Rockland is where I grew up, so for me, Wasses is a staple. It is the epidomy of hot dogs. The woman behind the counter knows me from when I was a child--she used to work the Waterfront Market in Thomaston (when I lived in Thomaston!). The buns are steamed if I remember correctly, though I'm sure you could ask... More

A local hot dog stand where you can add just about anything your heart desires. Fun and tasty. There are a couple of these throughout the area. Closed on Sundays

Stopped here on the way back to Portland from Bar Harbor on Route1. We wanted something different than the wonderful seafood we had been eating all week. We looked up "best hot dog" in Maine and found Wasses near the top of the list! Grabbed a few dogs and hung outside in their lot and enjoyed them with a view... More
