    2oz Lobster BLT was the perfect amount of lobster and thick bacon to satisfy me without breaking the bank.

    I prefer the Maine lobster roll over the CT one, which didn't have much to offer except butter/lobster/bread.

    Toasted buns add a nice touch to the classic roll. Good balance of lobster to mayo.

    The Connecticut roll is tops however I remember having this style in Maine as well as the mayonnaise one. The temperature enhances the natural flavor. Butter on the side would be a nice add on!

    Line: unnecessarily long (they're not cooking anything). Ordering process: haphazard. $3 soda: warm, yuck. Price: too damn high. Only saving grace was that at least the lobster roll was good.

    The Maine roll with mayo isn't too mayo-ey, which I appreciate. It's a hard decision between Conn and Maine, you can't go wrong with either!! The toasted and buttered bun make me happy!

    Sweet mamma Jackson, the lobster roll is good (don't look at the price and get 2). Someday this truck and Luke's truck should park on the same street and settle it once and for all.

    The Maine-style roll is lathered with homemade mayo; the Connecticut-style is tangy and delicious with butter. (It's hard to choose.) Make sure to try one of the super-sweet whoopie pies, too.

    Worth every penny! Connecticut-style is the only way to go - though they should grill the bun in butter instead of just toasting it. Otherwise, perfection!!!

    Spending $19 for lunch at a food truck is an expensive way of learning you don't like lobster rolls. Maine style was good, but I just expected more for $19...
