There is one eating establishment in Maine that we always stop at – Red’s Eats. This red shack which is no bigger than a minivan has the best lobster roll in the country. Nope, not just Maine, but I said “the country.” The building is painted red (of course) but the outside walls are papered with magazine write-ups, foodie accolades, and the ever important picture of Diner’s, Drive-in’s and Dive’s. So if you don’t want to take my word for how good it is, just read what’s plastered to the side of the building.
This little gem is perched right alongside Route 1 in Wiscasset and you can’t miss it. In fact, it is usually the line of people stretching three city blocks that draws your attention to the little hole in the wall. They serve more than lobster rolls but then who wants anything else when you can have over a pound of fresh lobster meat piled high in a toasted bun and served with a cup of drawn butter? Lobster rolls tend to have copious amounts of filler like celery, mayonnaise, lettuce, parsley, etc. but not this one . . . it is lobster roll perfection.
