Williamsburg (MA) Snack Shack ... Sat, 08/16/08 1:44 PM (permalink)
We have a local treasure just about 9 miles up the road on Route 9 in Williamsburg,
Massachusetts.

Fri/Sat/Sun:

Lobster Roll Special ... a good sized portion of succulent lobster with a nice
touch of mayo on a buttered, toasted NE hot dog roll ($6.95)

Fresh Whole Belly Fried Clams Special ... ($9.95)




This whole platter (including fries, onion rings and sweet potato fries) was $33.00:



Unanimous opinion of my group as good as the best we've ever had.

      I'll agree that food looks yummy but is it really possible to find a real lobster roll for only $6.95? Most real lobster rolls today are $12.95-$15.95. Some places sell a "lobster salad" roll, which is lobster cut with imitation fish to lower the cost for about the price you quote. If this is a real one for $6.95 I'm on my way

        No question it is 100% real lobster.

        Someone who knows the owner says the clams are as fresh as you get at places where you can see the water.

                    No doubt, the lobster is the real deal. I find myself there quite frequently on my way to or from various errands. I've never had the fried clams, though I hope to rectify that Monday if they have any left, but the lobster roll really is a fantastic deal and really is really, really, good. I find myself looking for reasons to be in the area around hunger time... This may be because we are not near the shore. I certainly may have had better ones in Maine, but Maine is a few hours away from here. These are a great inland substitute.

                    The pulled pork is also really good at $3.50, I think. Just goes to show that prices fall once you leave the high rent areas.
