I was excited to try this because of the reviews. Maybe I just didn't order the right thing. There was only one table to sit at which was taken. The workers were super friendly though.

You can't beat a Wasses Hot Dog--you just can't. They have a taste that you remember and wish you had one in your nearby location--even when you are in Texas (which we are). We haven't found a better tasting hotdog nationwide. Every time we come...More

The hotdog is served on a soft sided lobster roll bun which unfortunately is not toasted on the sides so the roll is rather floppy. The chili is bland. The grilled onions are a nice change from raw ones that are typical in most places....More

I don't even like hotdogs but the ones at Wasses are simply too good to pass up. Visit the original site in Rockland and pick your favorite dog ( or two). Cash only so come prepared.

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
