Been going to Simone's since I was a child. This is not a fancy place but you will feel at home. Very friendly and good food. What more can you ask for!

We had a variety of sandwiches, including a lobster roll. It was all good in this friendly local place. I recommend it, you'll definitely feel at home.

This one is a must have! Not only is the food great, but the small antiquated atmosphere and dinner are a blast from the times when life was great! You never know who will visit from Patrick Dempsey to political leaders from Maine and the nation! Its Just a spot you have to go !

Iconic little diner in the heart of Lewiston where even the crosswalks celebrate the hot dog! It's a special place in Lewiston and they serve a variety of hot dogs--and other sandwiches for lunch and have breakfast, too. Service fat and friendly. Bring the kids!

My husband is a weekly customer. Wednesday is his day. He loves the hot dogs and the servers are attentive. I love the Reuben sandwich from Simones'. The bread is crunchy, plenty of corned beef it is really yummy, a great sandwich.

Best hot dogs I have ever had. Great people work there and you can get anything from Great Red Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Fries, etc. Just a great little place that started out as a hot dog cart many years ago. Please check it out and say hey to Jimmy and his family. You can even have breakfast too.

Thank Belinda W
