This is a great place when only a good hot dog will do. These are the best hot dogs to get in the Midcoast of Maine. Don't miss it!

The best hot dog in all of New England. For Christmas I had my mom get me a shirt and it smelled like Wasses. This is must for any hot dog lover.

Even seemingly long lines are served in minutes! Fried in peanut oil, the hot dogs are served with almost any toppings you want in a steamed bun. Family owned and operated for many years. Outdoor picnic tables.

My mum's favorite place for a dog! It's a Maine institution. If you're looking for a quick lunch and a great view of the ferry terminal, check out Wasses!

My sons now live out of state and when they visit their first stop is Wasses. So, delicious. Everyone loves Wasses because we know how incredibly good the hotdogs are always going to be!

The best hot dogs I have ever had! Summer visitors always make this a priority when traveling through or staying in Rockland, Maine.

I don't eat here a lot but I drive by often enough that eventually the delicious smell makes it impossible to avoid any longer. It's popular because the dogs are so good. The added fries to the menu a while back. My favorite dog is...More

Great service and delicious hot dogs! (Don't forget the fries!) I've never had better hot dogs than this location - cooked in peanut oil. Super fast, no wait time!

A midcoast tradition. Locals know this as a good place to stop and grab a quality hot dog. You can tell by the typical line which is waiting for a hot dog regardless of the weather. Want a quick, simple lunch? This is the place.

Never eaten at the Wasses in Damariscotta. Probably just as good as the other locations. As far as gift certificates call them and inquire - 207-338-6431. I only review a place if I have eaten there. Damariscotta just... More
