    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

    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

    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!

    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.

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

    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!

    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 :)

    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.

    Nice but pricey

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

    Gee K. · July 14, 2011

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

    Jason R. · May 13, 2011
  • Alicia G.

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

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

    Allison K. · April 13, 2012

    If they're serving the ginger-mint limeade, you're a fool not to get it.

    Maine style is the best!

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

    Sarah W. · May 6, 2012

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

    Tryed the butter based lobster roll will try The mayo based next time very good food

    Kevin G. · November 8, 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 P. · July 30, 2011
  • Yonas H.

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

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