Very friendly and quick service. I had a hot dog with the works and one with sauerkraut. Yummy. My daughter got the Buffalo chicken basket. She wanted blue cheese sauce and they don't use a sauce they crumble REAL blue cheese on top of the chicken. The fries were very good, crispy on the outside. First visit and we will... More

I grew up in Waterville and remember going to Bolley's when an old man ran it. That was in the 60s! Since then, I've frequented the place on and off. Because I'm weight-conscious and trying to watch my diet, fries and hot dogs don't necessarily work. But when I feel adventurous and say, "screw the diet," I head to Bolley's!... More

Don't forget to get the works, fried pork, and onions are the best. Onion rings were crispy and home made.

For a hot dog joint, their hot dogs are the tastiest and most reasonably priced in all of Waterville. The service is appropriately Maine blue-collar quirky. Try a hotdog with mustard and salt pork.

I have been going to Bolley's for the past 10 years. Everytime I go, I get excellent service, and amazing food! I was driving by there today to avoid construction and figured I would stop in for lunch and wow am I glad I did. I ordered a Cheeseburger and large fries and it definitely hit the spot!

I've been going to Bolley's for 30+ years and I regularly will route my travels through Maine to include a stop at Bolley's. I've eaten hot dogs across the country, and this is unconditionally the best.

Anyone who goes here and thinks they are in for fine dining experience, your in the wrong place. But, if you want to know what Waterville is about go and enjoy. Listen to the lingo of the orders. Smell the deliciousness. Over hear the locals, even at 8am. My father and I spent time in the paper plant down the... More

Food is very bad value for the money, cooked poorly, service is surly. Not kid friendly. Even people who appeared to be 'regulars' (staff called them by name) seemed to be out of sorts.

If you want a quick and very tasty hot dog and fries then Bolley's is the place to go. The establishment is modest but the food is awesome!

I started eating at Bolley's 50 years ago and stop there almost every time I am in Waterville. I am a real hot dog lover and Bolley's is, unquestionably, the best around. The atmosphere may leave a little to be desired but the dogs will never let you down.
