Simones Hot Dog Stand

What to eat at Simones Hot Dog Stand

Bright! Pink! Weenies! It’s shocking to see a hot dog that is the color of a sunburned flamingo; but that’s the way Mainers like them; and that’s what Simones has been serving since 1908. There are other things to eat at this happy lunch counter, including submarine sandwiches, bowls of mild meat-and-bean chili, and burgers; but it is dogs that put Simones on the Roadfood map.

They’re blubbery characters, as far from gourmet sausage as encased meat can be. Decorated with a squiggle of mustard, bedded on relish in a tender bun, this is guileless fare, as fun as bubble gum. They’re fairly small, so four or five make a reasonable meal. The record for the most number of hot dogs eaten at Simones Hot Dog Stand in a single seating is now over three dozen.
