I have been eating hotdogs at Bolley's since the man himself had a single grill in a tiny shack on outer Bangor St. It is a low rent kind of place, but the dogs are the best and the onion rings to die for. They...More

Modest ambiance but the picture of small town family owned business. Lots of options for "real food" but their pastries are to die for.

While staying in Hallowell, we ate here several times. The food is great, the prices reasonable and the folks who run it are friendly. I will go out of my way to stop here for lunch, we like it so much!

They have excellent skinless hotdogs and other great food options. They make their own fresh pastries daily. My favorite is the chili cheese dogs with onions. Their prices are very reasonable and the staff is friendly. It's a great local place to eat.

Small but cozy and wonderful atmosphere. The staff and owners are very friendly. The food comes quick and good portions. I love the fries, onion rings, chili dogs and homemade pastries. You can have regular hot dogs or skinless. Excellent everything. Highly recommend.

Hot dogs and onion rings are simply put fantastic. I love their housemade desserts and donuts. They are always busy but worth the wait.

Both my husband and I got the hotdog basket. The fries are homemade and some of the best we've ever had.
