The motto of the Lobster Roll truck that is located in Fort Williams Park, within sight of the Portland Head Light is, “Not All Lobster Rolls are Created Equal”.
It is hard to miss the colorfully painted truck as it sits on a hill beside the road that runs through the park. Eliot claims this is the best of the many lobster roll trucks and other purveyors of lobster rolls in Maine.
Eliot took Debbie I there for lunch. Debbie had been talking about going back to this particular lobster roll truck since we started talking about our recent trip.
The three of us had what is called the “Picnic Roll” which has so much lobster it is hard to find the roll. We also had potato chips and soft drinks. (And took home to Melanie one of the Picnic Rolls.)
By happenstance, Debbie and I had lobster rolls at a different location in the previous week and they were not even poor cousins.
The lobster rolls cost $17.95. If you are in the general area it is well worth going out of your way to find this lobster truck.
The Bite into Maine truck was started by Karl and Sarah Sutton about 8 years ago. Karl and Sarah have been heard to say about “our little food truck”, “it’s what’s on the inside that counts.” They also claim to use only fresh and locally sourced lobster, bread and butter, vegetables, drinks and desserts.
There are six kinds of lobster rolls and a rotating selection of sides: creamy red potato salad, Cape Cod potato chips and coleslaw. And Whoopie Pies for dessert.
The truck is open from May – October. The Suttons have a couple of other locations: The Commissary in Scarborough, Maine–which is open year-round–and the Allagash Brewing Company in Portland which is also open only from May – October.
