In honor of national lobster day, which was June 15 , I decided to give Monstah Lobstah a try. OK, I actually ate there a day or two prior, but it was close enough. This outpost of Monstah Lobstah is located inside Doc Holliday’s and as you would expect there’s plenty of Boston memoribilia around the room, along with red/white checkered tablecloths, wooden seats and booths that give it that New England feel.

I went with their UConn roll ($17.99, although their web site says it’s $16.99), which was filled with a 1 1/4 lb lobster-worth of meat in a toasted hot dog-like bun with lettuce. It was lightly dressed with butter but was a little dry. It could have benefitted from having a side of clarified butter that I could apply as needed (quite the opposite experience of my roll at Rocco’s).

For those looking for a roll where the lobster is in a mayo-based mix with celery, green onions, etc. they have a lobster salad roll for $7.99.

My UConn roll was pretty good, but not as amazing as I had hoped. Not a big fan of the crinkle cut fries either. The value is decent for the amount of meat you get, but I’m not sure I’d get it again.
