    If you love great hot dogs, you're going to love Yank's Franks on Route 1 in Wells, Maine. Yank's grills its dogs and serves them on a buttered grilled roll. (They'll actually steam your dog if you prefer, but if you want a real taste sensation definitely go grilled.) They have several fresh toppings to choose from; you're going to have to go back many times to try them all. Don't forget the fries! Yank's also has burgers, chicken, pulled pork, chili and onion rings. Outdoor seating is available on their porch or under an umbrella on one of their picnic tables. Great food. Great service. Great overall experience.

    Favorite Dish: The "Yank's Frank" is phenomenal. It's the best version of a Chicago dog I've ever had: Mustard, relish, onions, tomato, pickle and celery salt...all complemented by the buttery goodness of the grilled roll.

    A BIT PRICIER THAN SOME, BUT PLENTY GOOD and in good surroundings too. It overlooks the Rachael Carson Wildlife Refuge, and also Wells Harbor.

    Favorite Dish: I don't remember, that was several years ago. However, people writing reviews seems to especially like their lobster stew and their chowder.

    By the way, this is a place that also serves hamburgers ($8.99), if someone in your party is so inclined.

    2009 SAMPLE PRICES: Bacon wrapped scallops appetizer $8.49
    Broiled salmon $18.99
    BBQ ribs half rack $15.99
    Caesar Salad $6.99
    Fish Chowder: small $4.69, large $$6.69
    Coffee or hot tea $1.99

    Very good ice cream, about 35 flavors from which to choose. My friend had a hot dog and it looked good also.

    Favorite Dish: I had some sort of coffee-flavored (jamoca?) ice cream, which was delicous.

    If you are interested in lighthouses, this is the place for you. They have lighthouse clothing, lighthouse models, lighthouse books, lighthouse coffee mugs, lighthouse....well, you get the idea. And its handy too, sitting right beside route 1 in Wells, Maine.

    What to buy: Whatever your heart desires, as long as it relates to lighthouses.

    What to pay: fair and reasonable prices.
