My favorite (Connecticut style) lobsta roll in Dallas is now $25.00 with one side. Last year, the same lobsta roll with one side was $18.00.




Where do you get your favorite lobster roll?
 
Sea Breeze (Preston between Parker & Spring Creek in  Plano) serves a decent version in the same price range.

Here in Ohio I get my favorite lobster roll right here at home. They're really easy. Steam a lobster, pick the claw, tail and knuckle meat, drop it into some nice warm clarified butter and then fill up a buttered and toasted top-split hot dog bun with the buttered lobster.

Correct. That be the place, Jim. You hit the nail right on the head! They also serve great fried clam bellies. My favorite side is their Asian slaw.

Your version sounds great, Michael. Especially being able to make it at home. Although for me, it's much more convenient to eat it out at Sea Breeze.

it's a Lobster Bomb from Ford's Lobster in Noank, CT.  One pound of lobster meat (fresh!) doused with lobster bisque.  Divine.  Thanks again to wanderingjew and Sandra!!!!!!




You are very welcome,  although Sandra deserves all the credit for that one, since she never  looks at Roadfood (or facebook for that matter) unless I show something to her, I'll let her know....

I worked for Yankee Lobster in Boston!  All the lobster you could eat!

I remember back in the sixties traveling Maine and New England as a salesman. I specifically remember staying at a Holiday Inn on the water in Maine and eating a complete lobster dinner for $1.29.

I always get their fried shrimp, fries & Asian slaw.  Best in town!  The Princess usually gets the lobster roll, but I always get a bite.
 
I've always wondered why there are so few decent seafood places in this ultra-prosperous metro area of 7,000,000+.  After Sea Breeze, the best fried shrimp in town are at The Cheesecake Factory/Grand Lux Café.  And don't even think about a decent crab cake!  Man cannot sustain on brisket alone!

The best crab cakes in Dallas can be had at Houston's, TJ's, and the Aw Shucks on Greenville Avenue.

Thanks!
 
1)  I've gone to the Big Shucks on Mockingbird many times, but never to the Aw Shucks on Greenville.  As they share ownership, is Aw Shucks better?
 
2)  Never been to TJ's; we'll be trying their Preston/Royal location soon!
 
3)  Never been to Houston's in Texas, although I really enjoyed them in their (now closed) WDC location in Georgetown on Wisconsin below M.  They couldn't compete with Clyde's.

Jim, the food at Aw Shucks on Greenville is superior to their Big Shucks store on Mockingbird. Especially, the crab cake. Like, two different food items.
 
Many Houston's have changed their name to Hillstone. Same company! No changes in food, quality or, ambiance. Just a name change.
 
Houston's and Hillstone have the very best crab cakes. Albeit, the most expensive as well.
 
There is a very nice Houston's on Beltline east of the tollway.
 
Give TJ's a call first to make sure they're doing crab cakes the night y'all are going there.

What's the big deal about making a lobster roll? Sheesh! Take one lobster, steam it, pick the meat, toss the picked meat into some warm clarified butter, and then put as much of the meat as will fit into a hot dog bun that has been toasted in butter on a flattop or a skillet. Now here's the tricky part. Eat it. If you prefer one of those lobster salad rolls I can't help you. I think there's some mayonnaise involved.

....and minimum wage was 1.60 per hour. An hour of work, today, still buys a meal, but not lobster!!! Most McD meals will set you back an hour of McD pay.  I understand that the new marketing major grads (the good ones), this year, are getting $60k. They can buy the occasional lobster dinner unless they have big college loans.  "....two hours of pushing brooms" Still a good  song, but out of date price wise too!!

OK. That's it. Knowing full well that whenever lleechef sees this I'm going to get an earful because she's heard it so many times, I remember being upset when the price of a lobster roll at Jimmies in Savin Rock went up a nickel to 75 cents -- same as a pint of fried clams.

Lobsters used to be considered trash food and were plentiful and cheap.
• When the first European settlers reached North America, lobsters were so plentiful that they would reportedly wash ashore in piles up to 2 feet high. Their bounty made them a precious source of sustenance during hard times—and gave them a nasty reputation as the poor man’s protein.
• Native Americans used lobsters to fertilize their crops and bait their fishing hooks. They also ate the abundant crustaceans, preparing them by covering them in seaweed and baking them over hot rocks. According to tradition, this cooking method inspired the classic New England clambake.
• At first, lobsters were gathered by hand along the shoreline. In the late 1700s, special boats known as smacks, which featured tanks with holes that allowed seawater to circulate, were introduced in Maine for the transport of live lobsters. The workers who operated these shellfish-friendly vessels were known as smackmen. It was not until the mid-19th century that lobster trapping, also first practiced in Maine, became a more popular way to collect the sea creatures.
• Dirt-cheap because they were so copious, lobsters were routinely fed to prisoners, apprentices, slaves and children during the colonial era and beyond. In Massachusetts, some servants allegedly sought to avoid lobster-heavy diets by including stipulations in their contracts that they would only be served the shellfish twice a week.
• The first lobster pound was established in Vinalhaven, Maine, in 1876. The town is still home to a thriving lobster fishery.
• Lobster began to shed some of its negative reputation and gain a following among discriminating diners, particularly in Boston and New York City, during the 1880s. Prices immediately began to rise.
• Because lobster was considered a delicacy by the time World War II began, it was not rationed. The booming wartime economy allowed wealthy cravers of crustaceans to consume them at unprecedented rates.
• American lobsters—or Maine lobsters, as they are commonly known—can weigh more than 40 pounds and grow up to 3 feet long. The largest lobster on record was caught off Novia Scotia in 1988. It weighed in at 44 pounds and was 42 inches long. Scientists believe it was at least 100 years old—twice the lifespan of the average lobster.
• The lobster, which has changed little over the last 100 million years, is known for its unusual anatomy. Its brain is located in its throat, its nervous system in its abdomen, its teeth in its stomach and its kidneys in its head. It also hears using its legs and tastes with its feet. One of the few things lobsters have in common with humans: They tend to favor one front limb, meaning they can be right-clawed or left-clawed.
• When crowded into tight quarters such as store display tanks, lobsters tend to become cannibalistic. Sellers tightly band their claws to prevent them from feasting on their neighbors.
• Though considered a rich and decadent food, lobster meat contains fewer calories than an equal portion of skinless chicken breast. It also boasts healthy omega-3 fatty acids, potassium and the vitamins E, B-12 and B-6.

I live in Wareham, MA  (gateway to Cape Cod) and everyone and their brother sells lobster-rolls this time of year.  A few notables from my area:
Kool Kone rt 6 Wareham
Oxford Creamery Mattapoisset
Lobster Pot - Buzzards Bay
 
My house on Mother's Day!  - I bought 1 1/2# lobster meat from my favorite fish market, added some diced celery, lemon juice, S & P, and about 1 tbsp mayo (only).  quick stir and chilled.
 
Brown split-top hot dog buns in butter, and stuff your rolls.
 
We had (6) jumbo lobster rolls from 1 1/2 lbs!  Add some home-made chowda on the side and it was a feast!

While in Baa Habbah a few years ago, I noticed many homes had hand printed signs in their front yards advertising fresh, (uncooked) lobsters for $3.00 lb. Obviously, lobster fishermen.

I saw no reason whatsoever for the post be labeled as spam. True, it may have been "plagiarized". But not in a deceitful way. It was posted to be historically educating. I found Foodbme's post to be interesting, enlightening, and informative.

PaPa Gino, a local chain is doing the lobster roll special again. It's 12.99 this year with no sides. The cold lobster, with a little mayo, on a bed of shredded lettuce, in a grilled, split top roll is as good as a lot of places that charge more. We had it for the 1st time of the season yesterday, and I expect that even at the new higher price, we will be buying more than a few before Columbus Day, when the deal usually ends.
 
Ronnies (Auburn, Mass), usually does a Wed lobster roll dinner special at a really good price, but I don't know the price for this year.
