Red's: one of my top 5 Roadfood experiences of all time.

Dino's in North Haven Conn makes a great "Connecticut-Style" Lobster roll on a grilled hot dog bun. Plus, you can wash it down with a nice Hummels dog for dessert!!

I enjoy living where I do. Really, I do. Nevertheless, I have lived (and eaten) elsewhere; and I wish I had the opportunity to try many of the delicacies I see on RF. The various ethnic foods make me salivate. (Real kielbasa? And what does linguiça taste like?) But after living in the [SF] Bay Area and sampling abalone sandwiches and Crab Louis and the Sidewalk Cocktail, I can't help thinking I would die happy if I could have a week or two to try lobster rolls in all their succulent variations. Or a month. Or a decade. . . .

After doing some research here on Hot Lobster Rolls, we are now thinking of driving 4 hours out of our way from Cape Cod in two weeks to go to Red's in Maine. That picture is obscene and Bob's comment to me on the phone (we were viewing it together at the same time) was that he could not even look at it anymore - he had to shut it off because he was going to cry lol -

I am hoping to find a hot lobster roll on our way to MA, but compared to Red's, they all seem inadequate. We did Abbott's last year, and it was very good, but we'd like to find something different. On another thread Mr. Hoffman suggested Johnny Ad's. Think we may try there...Sue

RED'S is so worth the drive- i was there this past weekend 3 times- i ate 2 lobster rolls from red's each time. market price for a lobster roll at red's this year with tax was somewhere around $17 and worth every penny! perfectly prepared, overflowing with big whole chunks of luscious lobster meat, briney, incredible, barely needed the drawn butter (but it sure didn't hurt...). and the fried zuchinni were like soft pillows of sweet zuchinni! incredible! we also hit sea basket (fried shrimp sandwich- awesome- so fresh, new owners, same attention to detail and cleanliness and changing the oil constantly and no hydrogynated oils!), and of course moody's diner (perfect hot opened turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and carrots and 4 berry pie). but Red's cannot be beat- and they are perhaps the nicest service people i have ever encountered- the nice woman, as she gave me my order of 5 lobster rolls +, thanked me for such a "beautiful order"- that's right, she thanked ME! i should be thanking her for giving me the best lobster roll in the world... enjoy fb

p.s. pics to follow if i can figure out how to upload a pic...

FrankBooth-
Wow! That is some serious eating you did over the weekend. I can certainly understand your love of Red's Eats, as it one of my very favorite Roadfood places. Three times in one weekend.....nicely done!

in fact, on saturday, i had breakfast at the Alna Store (bacon egg and cheese on an english muffin- very fresh and greasy good), lunch at sea basket (shrimp sandwich), suppah at moody's (hot turkey sandwich), and dinner at Red's (2 lobster rolls and zuchs). i felt like i was eating for my life... a supreme day of eating... we even hit white hut in springfield mass on the way home on sunday (which was perfect in that greasy state fair burger type of way- delicious, fresh, great real lemonade, easy on off the mass pike). also, let me add, if you are in maine and driving towards red's from the south, in both portland and brunswick ME you will find a little drive in coffee shop called "the Udder Place"- no joke, this may be some of the best espresso product i've had in the united states- the owner has all his baristas well trained and obviously takes his coffee quite seriously. i would venture to say that my double espresso short was considerably better than any of the high end espresso spots in ny city (much better than joe's, 9th st and no artifice/attitude). yes, i have been fortunate enough to drink 100's of espressos in italy and i can tell you that the Udder Place (don't let the silly name throw you) can hang... i had 3 great espressos there this weekend... but Red's is one of a kind...

That's ironic

I went to udder place coffee company too when I was in Portland over memorial day weekend- There is a location in Portland halfway between my hotel and downtown
I didn't have the espresso- I thought the coffee (dark roast) was very good but not "Pacific Northwest Good" which is the benchmark I use to compare coffee

I have. Not as bad as you might expect. The meat had obviously been frozen, but you got a decent amount for the price. I wouldn't recommend seeking them out, but if you HAVE to eat at McD's for some reason, it's better than anything else on the menu.

I lived north of Boston for 25 years, and never ran across a hot lobster roll. The best lobster (salad) roll I had up there was from a take-out stand at Salem Willows park. Wish I could remember the name of the place.

I don't know if any of you get up to the Cornish, ME area, but if you do Bay Haven makes a darn good lobster roll. I've never eaten at Red's (although it's now on my list) but from the picture posted on the previous page, Bay Haven's lobster roll is of the same quality - pretty much a claw and and a huge hunk of tail in a bun... Their chowders/stews are amazing as well.

"Connecticut Style" Lobster Rolls are buttered on a toasted, buttered Hot Dog Bun- Try Dino's in North Haven for a good one....

The 99, a local chain, is offering it both ways this spring. We have had the cold version ("salad"), and I have seen the hot version served to others., Both are good.
[id="quote"]PaPa Ginos, another local chain offers a lobster (salad) roll at 11.99, a dollar more than last season, but still a great deal. The same commisary prepared 1/4 lb, of lobster with mayo can go on a salad, or a hot, buttered, grilled roll. The very best deal is always at Ronnie';s in Auburn, where they serve a a real deal on a lobster (salad) roll, with fries and slaw on Wednesday, in the mid summer.

I tried to quote and comment on the old bweir post, but the system is a little funky, maybe because it is a double quote. I'm sorry if it is hard to read.

I drove past Ronnies in Auburn, MA today. It was Tuesday so they were closed, but the sign said that the summer, Wednesday lobster roll deal is back. The grilled roll (it looks like 1/4 lb but they don't advertise it as such) with cold lobster, fries (average) and slaw costs $11 this year. A few years ago, the paper said that they use over 100 lbs of lobster on a Wednesday, so that is a lot of lobster rolls!!! It is an outstanding roll, but the one at FF chain, PaPa Gino's is just as good. They charge 11.99, but give a 10% senior disc. PaPa Gino is sandwich only,,,,,no fries or slaw, and they serve it every day, from early April to Columbus Day weekend.
 
Speaking of Ronnies, I have not made it there this season. I am really in need of some outstanding fried clams. Other clam places that I tried over the winter are not as good as they used to be. The fact is that you can't sell cheap clams, so why try??? If a clam dinner costs the better part of a car payment, what is another$3 to $5 , so that the clam shack can buy the best clams? I am confident that when I get to Ronnies, the clams will be expensive, but fairly priced, and will perfectly wonderful to eat.

If you're heading south down I-95 and want to quickly pick up some lobster rolls for the trip home, Stew Leonard's is a neat supermarket near the Norwalk exit of 95 with some good pre-made lobster rolls (the cold, mayo salad variety). I don't have much of a basis to comment on where the best lobster rolls are, but this is a quick stop I like to make whenever I'm passing through that stretch of I-95 (and probably one of the last places to stop before leaving lobster roll turf).
 
Stew Leonard's is fun to visit even if you don't like lobster rolls. They have a video feed where you can watch live footage of the cows on their dairy farm.
