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...

Stopped by this famous place in Rockland for lunch believing that I would get an absolutely fantastic hot dog. I'm sorry to say that my experience was just slightly above average. The dogs are grilled which I like but these liquid squirt cheese from a can was a disappointment. I will say that one standout was the Western dog which... More

I've driven past this place numerous times and never noticed it until some friends took us there. Nothing special except great hot dogs, good toppings and being part of history. This place goes back many years. I am embarrassed I had never heard of it. Fun place. Sometimes the line at the window is long ...but worth the wait...plus you... More
