Bolley's Famous Franks

December 2020 Featured Business:

Bolley’s Famous Franks, located at 96 College Avenue in Waterville, is NOW OPEN! This iconic brick-sided building has brought joy and comfort to generations. Patrons of all ages enjoy the experience of opening the heavy glass door and being greeted with the scent of hotdogs, onions and salt pork cooking on the grill, and the sweet smell of crinkle cut fries wafting in the air. A single, socially distanced line makes its way to the order desk. Customers blurt out their personalized orders, then are called out down the line while the staff busily works to fill each one. Quickly you are out the side door and back to your car. Many eat their meal right there in the parking lot.
