You can tell they are good before even taking a bite! This little place always has a line. My daughter always gets her hotdogs plain as she says toppings ruin the taste!!! Always a good bet for a quick lunch!

I'd heard about the famous hotdogs so we gave them a try and got them loaded with the fixings and onions. It was delicious but I wished they had served them in the cardboard holders as the roll was soaked with the fixings and I ended up wearing it. But I'd eat there again, just more carefully!

Hot dogs are great but a little overpriced. Always busy but line moves quickly. If this place is too busy the location in thomaston is a good back up.

Visited Wasses after a local recommended it. I had the Bacon Dog and my husband had the Chili Dog. First off, despite the time of year - last week of December - the place was busy. It's a walk-up so I was not expecting it to be open until I saw the full parking lot. Second, it is arguably the... More

I rarely eat hot dogs, but I LOVE a good one and consider it a treat. I saw Wasses in Rockland, read the reviews and the cravings began. Yesterday, we decided to give Wasses a try for lunch. Every time we have driven by, it seemed busy - which seemed like a good sign. We approached the window and a... More

Seriously is a really good hot dog. What makes it unique is the bun that it's served on. A split white bread. Having with grilled onions is a must. Still the best hot dog in the world is the dog at Baejarins Beztu Pylsur in Reykjavik iceland but this is right up there

Walk up to the window, place your order, getcher dogs and enjoy them at a bench there, in the car or down at the dock in Rockland. Wasses cooks up good hot dogs...and there's something really neat about eating them outdoors with onions, mustard and whatever makes you happy. And it's fun to walk up and order at the window...
