Flo's Hot Dogs - huge dissapointment!

Maybe my expectations were too high, but I couldn't believe how average I thought Flo's Hot Dogs on Rt.1 in Cape Neddick, Maine, were. It was one of our last stops on our long weekend trip to Oqunquit and I had seen Samantha Brown rave about this place on her TV show, which in turn led me to read glowing reviews everywhere on the Internet about this being one of the 10 best hot dogs in the country, if not the best. The hot dog itself was not unlike any hotdog you can buy at the supermarket, and her signature relish was just 'eh' - not bad but nothing to get excited about.

Me, my girlfriend, and our two friends all agreed it wasn't a bad hot dog, but the fact that this place has constant lines around the door and waits up to two hours, on top of the national press and notoriety is something we'll never understand. I'm from Western Mass and think Nick's Nest in Holyoke, or even a dog from Rondeau's in Palmer easily surpass what we had today. I realize I'm in the minority with my opinion so maybe I'm the weird one!
