    Awesome lobster roll, get out of the comfort zone and get yourself a Tuscan, the mix lobster + pesto is a win! Seriously good!

    Caught the Red Hook truck in Kips Bay - awesome Connecticut Style Lobster Roll with chips for Lunch - makes you feel like the weekend is almost here.

    The lobster roll, small but amazing. The roll is adequately buttery, the lobster fresh coated with aioli and a pinch of old bay!

  • Carmen N.

    The Maine style lobster roll is superior to the Connecticut style, and I like the shrimp roll too. The Tuscan is always sold out, it seems.

  • Corley S.

    Great lobster roll options, but obviously the Maine style is the best. Plus, the fact that you can get a roll, chips, and a drink for $20 is practically a steal

    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.

    New Yorkers don't need to go to New England for a good lobster roll. Thanks to Big Red, Red Hook Lobster Pound's lobster shack on wheels, they only need to walk to the curb. Read more

    Tastes good but wish it was a bigger portion

    Prices too high for the small portions..potato salad came in a small sauce container and new england clam chowder is watery.

    You will not be dissapoint with Lobster mac & cheese. The chunk of fresh lobster in BLT will make you cry. Cuz it's so good.

    I tried the warm, buttery Connecticut roll. I'll be going back to the Maine roll on future visits.

    Adam Smieszny · May 30, 2014
  • Dori C.

    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!

    I got lobster roll twice!! It's a m a z i n g!! I wish they serve sliced lemon with it, it would enhance the flavor 😍

    There is nothing tastier than this. Get a Connecticut roll, a blueberry soda and some salt & vinegar chips, and mentally prepare for the best lunch ever.

    Reb FS · August 23, 2013

    Absolutely THE best lobster roll!

    Courtinay Casey · August 6, 2013

    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.

    Philip Paulsson · July 30, 2013
  • Rebecca H.

    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!

    Rebecca Harrelson · June 5, 2013

    Good amount of lobster. Didn't feel cheated.

    The Connecticut style is delish! Warm butter and green onion. Perfect.

    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.

    Pricey, but the lobster BLT is unforgettable. Lobster+Bacon! The bun is crunchy to perfection and the butter makes it better.

    The warm Connecticut style lobster roll is my favorite in the city. What's great is they've at most every flea market and food truck rally so they're pretty easy to catch. Read more

    I always go with the Connecticut style because what's better with lobster than buttery goodness? It pricey but then again luxury aint cheap baby! Read more

    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.

    Gilt City · September 26, 2011
  • Laura D.

    the maine-style lobster roll is the only option you need. it tastes even better if you get a whoopie pie, too.

    Laura D. · September 9, 2011
  • Find. Eat. Drink.

    Lobster rolls are great, but don't overlook the shrimp rolls. Cheaper and really delicious.

    The Conneticut Lobster Roll is worth every penny. Don't pass by this truck!

    Sarah C · July 26, 2011
  • chad b.

    Disappointing. Luke's Lobster needs a food truck.

    chad bolton · July 21, 2011
  • Babe Z.

    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!!!

    Babe Zero · July 3, 2011
  • Bauzen

    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...

    Bauzen · June 16, 2011

    Maine style is the way to go.
