The SouthCoast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island have plenty of options for the best lobster rolls.
The minute summer arrives in the SouthCoast, the search for the season's best lobster roll begins. The lobster roll actually originated in Milford, Connecticut in 1929. The traditional Connecticut style lobster roll contains tender bits of steamed lobster tossed right onto the griddle with butter, just enough to warm through, then is piled high on a hot dog bun with nothing more than an occasional spritz of lemon.

There are variations of the lobster roll or lobster salad roll throughout the SouthCoast that may contain one of more of the following: diced celery, scallion, lettuce, lemon juice, salt & pepper and mayonnaise. The lobster meat is usually knuckle, claw and chunks of tail meat. Traditionally, French fries or plain chips accompany a lobster roll. No matter how you like your lobster roll prepared - go treat yourself to this sensational seasonal sandwich.
