    My favorite DC food truck by a mile. Worth the line and the money. Connecticut-style lobster roll all the way.

    The lobster BLT is to die for. And the mint-ginger limeade is a great deal.

    Go with the Connecticut style. Best lobster rolls in DC.

    Luke's lobster is superior. Shrimp rolls are arguably better and half the price.

  • AFAR Media

    Their super-fresh lobster rolls are worth the wait. Go either Connecticut-style or Maine-style with a side of New England clam chowder or lobster mac n' cheese. Read more

    Nothing beats this food truck when it’s nearby; try the shrimp roll.

    Maine style is the best!

    Cincinnati is the way to go! Maine is also good.

    Sarah W. · May 6, 2012

    Whoopie pies are lackluster. Stick with a lobster roll and chips.

    Allison Kasic · April 13, 2012
  • Madison L.

    expensive for a food truck but worth it every once in a while!

    Madison Levin-Epstein · January 1, 2012

    Kevin Gourzis · November 8, 2011

    I loved this sandwich. (Had Maine style). Worth every penny! Read more

    Going to this popular truck requires a commitment of time and money. It's worth a try at least once, since the lobster is fresh and well-prepared.

    Alicia Dunn · September 29, 2011

    Best lobster roll I've ever had. If you're not a mayo fan, get the Connecticut roll. It's sweet buttery heaven. Also try the tasty lemonade!

    Erika Schnure · September 5, 2011
  • James S.

    Oh how I love the food here... everything is top notch from the famous rolls to the phenomenal soups and homemade drinks! Figure out your order early or face the wrath of staff and crowd :)

    James Sullivan · August 22, 2011

    Get it Connecticut style with butter. It really brings out the flavor of the lobster and doesn't overpower the delicate lobster taste.

    Lynn Pina · July 30, 2011

    The "Connecticut" lobster roll is by far the best. Hands-down. Read more

    Best Lobster roll I have had in a while - warm toasty bun DELISH!

    Lianne Farbes · July 17, 2011
  • Gee K.

    Maine style is so refreshing on a hot summer day with a cold soda!

    Gee K. · July 14, 2011
  • Jason R.

    Try the Mexi-Cola flavor of the Maine Root soda.

  • Bon Appetit Magazine

    Every week the lobster meat for this food truck is driven down from Maine by its owners to ensure its freshness, a crucial factor in making a superior roll. Enojy! Read more

    Yum! Huge hunks of warm, succulent lobster on a buttery toasted roll - the Connecticut-style roll is where it's at! Cash AND credit!

    Alicia G · February 22, 2011

    I got the Connecticut Style and thought it was amazing

    Ryan Abell · February 4, 2011
  • Brent S G.

    Chowder is the most underrated item on the menu. Whoppie Pie is second.

    Brent S Gambill · January 29, 2011

    I got the lobster roll, Maine-style, very delicious but thankfully I got chips as well or else I'd still be hungry, the roll is not that big.

    DC Dining Adventures · December 20, 2010

    Since you can only get 1 thing go for the lobster roll over the shrimp maine style over connecticut. Black cherry soda or hot cider! Bon appetit!

    Genevieve Markey · November 8, 2010

    Find them on weekends to avoid the long line.

    Not fair no points I was just there!

    The lemonade is fantastic, but it's not really worth the huge wait in line.

    The rolling crustacean unit just hit the streets this week, selling Maine & Connecticut-style rolls for $15 a pop. Street food just got a lot sweeter in Washington. Read more
