Better than ball park dogs and MUCH cheaper! Quick service, tasty food (and hot) - great for a quick stop and eat.

No indigestion after eating their dog with; while that was a plus, we didn't think their dogs were anything special. I personally like my dogs with a "snap".

You just cannot beat the dogs at this walkup stand. I usually pass on hot dogs but these are incredibly tasty.

Wasses is fast, yummy, & compared to NYC dogs with a snap, nice and easy w/o a snap. Always go for whatever Wasses puts on your dog: onions, relish,mustard. That's it folks! We were in Rockland for Labor Day, and discovered this little stand going...More

Love their dogs. I've been to the Rockland one as well, which was why I stopped in Damariscotta. I knew the hot dogs would be scrumptious and they were. Wish I made them that well at home.

Not sure what the big deal is here as I prefer the SULLY's extraordinary hotdog cart in town., this is a new restaurant in town that basically has one product- a hot dog, with or without fried onions! I can do that at home.

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...More

what kind of hot dog do you use is it a beef or a pork mixture and if you could tell me what brand or do you have them special made. I live 250 from rockland and tried wasses and love them, will be back next year for sure but would like to get the brand around here if you use a name brand.

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
