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

Visit this place every summer while in Maine. Get a Dog, Soda, and Fries. Simple but classic tastes. Worth the the wait in line.

I was excited to try this because of the reviews. Maybe I just didn't order the right thing. There was only one table to sit at which was taken. The workers were super friendly though.

You can't beat a Wasses Hot Dog--you just can't. They have a taste that you remember and wish you had one in your nearby location--even when you are in Texas (which we are). We haven't found a better tasting hotdog nationwide. Every time we come...More
