My wife & I tried the dogs. I had the bacon & chille ,my wife had the chille dog. It was OK. We then each tried the dog with sauerkraut . Which we both liked better the the other two. The franks were average. We like the sabbret franks better

I'm a hopeless hotdog lover and could not resist the urge to stop by this carry out restaurant. There seemed to be very long lines most times when we passed. However, my patience paid off and I finally had the opportunity to enjoy a hotdog with everything and a chili dog. They were heavenly on a perfect roll, with a... More

Tried to go to another restaurant during lunch on this particular day but decided to try Wasses Hot Dogs in Damariscotta due to reviews and historical context. Pulled up on a wet and rainy day at approx 230pm, stood in line behind one couple for close to 8 minutes, ordered our dogs (2 chili, 1 chili and bacon, 1 sauerkraut;... More

I try to make it point to stop for a hot dog at Wasses whenever we vacation in the immediate area. I learned long ago that unless you specify otherwise, ordering means it will be finished with mustard, relish and grilled onions. Prices remain acceptable and the lines continue, but this day's doggie and onions could have remained on the... More

We had to stop to try one because who doesn't love hot dogs. They were ok but the chili didn't even have any meat in it. The buns were good and soft after being steamed but the hot dog is just ok and very small. It didn't compare to other places that we have had hot dogs!!

A family tradition to stop at Wasses on our way to Stonington. They gave our dogs free hotdogs, too!

Brand new location for the well known Wasses. Quick service, cleanly building and grounds. I love the hot dogs that are fried in peanut oil and covered with chili. Fries are good also! A Maine experience if you crave a hot dog.

Wasses hot dogs do not disappoint! They are cooked to perfection in peanut oil and are delicious! The local ladies that work there were so friendly and helpful! I would highly recommend you try them out! My family and I had so much fun trying out all the local restaurants and Wasses was one of our favorite stops!

This was amazing! It was my first visit to a hot dog stand and it was fabulous! I had a bacon cheese dog. The only problem is that Maine is about as far away from my home in Utah as it can get in the contiguous states, so it'll be awhile before I can have another one. I will definitely... More
