Just ok after years of hearing about it and seeing all the cars. It is a small shack literally on the roadside that sells steamed hot dogs topped with Flo's special relish. Do not ask for ketchup or you will get a look from the staff. The quarters are cramped and you will have to eat on the hood of... More

Ok, flo's is a hole in the wall on route one, we never would have known about it but stopped because of some local advice. There is a line out the door, but service goes quickly. I've learned that when trying a new place the house specialty is the way to go, and you can't go wrong with a flo... More

Almost every local in Maine has been to Flo's a couple hundred times. I've even waited in line for almost 1 hour just for the food. If you are lucky, you'll meet Flo. But don't be to excited about it. She's known to make a grown man walk out. Things are done very differently at Flo's so it can be... More

this is one place that you need to stop at. I saw this on the travel channel and am so glad we stopped. The hot dogs are awesome, the relish and toppings combination makes them great! WE got there at 11 am when they opened so the line was not very long. Our only regret is that we did not... More

This is a must stop at least one a year. It has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember.

This ain't the Ritz but between the cook and the Sauce, Flo's is a standout! This is a very unassuming place well known by locals and voted the best hot dog in the Northeast in Reader's Digest. When you arrive, be prepared to tell "Flo" the number of hot dogs you will be needing. She throws the appropriate number into... More

Stopped in for lunch as I had heard over and over from locals that it was a must while visiting southern Maine. The line wasn't too bad when we arrived, but quickly got longer as we waited. Service was fast, efficient, and everyone was happy to be there! Hot dogs were amazing-the kids downed them in seconds. Take it from... More

Everyone should try a Flo's hot dog once. The steamed dog and bun along with their unique relish is tasty. And the tiny red building, long line, and colorful owner makes it a unique experience.

You order and wait. We ate outside because there are people waiting to order and the line can be very long in a place that is very small with just 3 barstools to eat at the counter. Everyone we asked for directions all knew about Flo's. This is a goldmine for the owner and very popular . The best tasting... More
