Wasses in Belfast, Maine

As we rolled back south from Down East Maine, we stopped at an iconic Maine joint in Belfast: Wasses. This is not the original Wasses, which has been in Rockland for over 40 years, this is the “other” Wasses, which has been around for a little over 20 years. This Wasses is located right on […]

Donna’s Dawgs in Middleboro, MA

National Hot Dog Month Tour stop number 28 brought myself and Little Miss to Donna’s Dawgs in Middleboro, MA. One word describes this little hot dog stand on route 28 (and it’s owner): ADORABLE.

Yank’s Franks in Wells, Maine

Day 12 of the National Hot Dog Month Tour features a trip to Yank’s Franks in Wells, Maine.

Merry Christmas Hot Dogs

With all the holiday hullabaloo, there just hasn’t been much chance to get to a quality hot dog joint. Little Miss likes her dogs, so she asked me to cook some up at home for supper one night. We use Kayem Old Time Franks in our house-just like at my old Hot Dog Truck. Here […]
