“How can a hot dog be this bad?”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

A hot dog from this place is something perhaps a four year old would enjoy. You get a cheap greasy dog in a cheap little soggy roll, so soggy you have to peel away the paper napkin that sticks and actually becomes part of the roll. French fries are of the same grade, limp and soggy. Try the kraut dog if you want to add even more water to the mess. A hot dog has great possibilities, unfortunately not here. Yuk!

“Too greasy!”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Hot dogs, which are not of a very high grade, are fried on a grill plate that is covered with about 1/2 inch of vegetable oil. Much too gastronomic.

“Not bad - but I was expecting something better”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We decided to try here after reading all the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotdogs were fine, but not as amazing as I was hoping they would be! It;s maybe worth a visit if you're in the area, but I wouldn;t go out of my way for one.

“Don't miss Wasses!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Wasses Hot Dogs have been in the same location since I was a child! There's something magical about them that cannot be replicated at home. I bought the exact same kind of hot dogs and the peanut oil to fry them in and they were nothing like Wasses. I've heard the secret is in the grill...but whatever it is, you'll never find a better hot dog. And I normally don't even eat hot dogs! .
