    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

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    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!!!

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

    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

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

    If you see the truck anywhere nearby, run and treat yourself to a classic Maine lobster roll...perfectly toasted bun topped with whole chunks of succulent lobster

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

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

    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...

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

    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.

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