We stopped at the Rockland Main St. little shop for a quick lunch. We had the chili dogs which were good. A good stop if you have kids

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!

I stopped in for lunch yesterday and really expected something special having read the reviews here. What a disappointment. For $2.50 you get a very small dog heated on a griddle. No sear, no char, just a small warm dog on a very moist, sticks...More

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

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
