Loved this place. Amazing food, super friendly staff and very affordable. Now I understand why there's always a line (but it's well worth the wait).

A great hot dog, grilled with onions. Add-on Options for chili, beans, bacon and cheese are available. Also offers fries, chips, drinks, brownies. It’s a walk-up hot dog stand, with limited picnic-table seating. Good view of the harbor.

Stopped for a quick bite on our way to the Samoset for my wife's birthday. It's a tradition to stop there to get a hot dog. It satisfies my greasy food craving. I got the crout dog with hot mustard. Yummy!

Wasses makes my favorite hot dogs, and I'm a fanatic! These are sauteed in onions and peanut oil and served in steamed buns, with lots of great fixings! I crave these year-round and can't wait to head to Maine for the summer so I can...More
