These guys do hot dogs and they do them well. Fast and efficient. Just about what you'd expect from a place like this.

You can tell they are good before even taking a bite! This little place always has a line. My daughter always gets her hotdogs plain as she says toppings ruin the taste!!! Always a good bet for a quick lunch!

Hot dogs are great but a little overpriced. Always busy but line moves quickly. If this place is too busy the location in thomaston is a good back up.

what kind of hot dog do you use is it a beef or a pork mixture and if you could tell me what brand or do you have them special made. I live 250 from rockland and tried wasses and love them, will be back next year for sure but would like to get the brand around here if you use a name brand.

Last I knew they used the brand Neighborhood which I have found at Market Basket. But the key is cooking it in peanut oil with onion's and having a steamed bun. I've tried to recreate but there's just something magical... More
