When I heard this place sold a fried lobster poboy, I thought there had to be some kind of gimmick to it. Was it artificial lobster meat? Made with some kind of lobster flavored Alaskan fish? Or was it real lobster and they only put a skimpy portion of lobster meat on it? I know some places down here sell lobster rolls, but not fried lobster poboys. I had to get here and check it out.
Well, it was the real deal. Real lobster meat, and plenty of it! Seasoned and fried perfectly. Your sandwich comes wrapped up in white paper as poboys often do. When the guy came and put it on the table I asked, “Where are the fries”? He said they were wrapped up with the sandwich.
The bread wasn’t the traditional New Orleans French bread, but rather some kind of elongated bun. It was good though! And the fries were nice and crisp. Just rough chopped potatoes with no weird batter or anything. Just how I like them.
We also tried the Havana, which is their version of a Cuban sandwich. It was pretty good but nothing special about it worth mentioning.
If you’re a lobster and poboy lover like me, do yourself a favor and come here and try one of these. You’ll love it!
