I'm broke, and I'm going to Maine. Help!

Hello all,

My boyfriend and I are going to Maine on a last minute trip. We will be in portland for the day, freeport for the night. Tomorrow we'll be driving to camden to camp. I'm looking for recommendation for lunch and dinner along the way. My one rule is that these needs to be $10.00 or less per person, including tax and tip. We're open to anything, including ethnic... but would love to find some tucked away seafood joint that fits this budget limitation. =) Thank you for any suggestions you may have.

    1. Two Lights Lobster Shack, Two Lights Road, off Route 77 in Cape Elizabeth, just outside of Portland. The stuff of dreams. Picture perfect setting with rocks, crashing surf, lighthouses, etc. Plus great lobster and picnic tables. Have fun!

      1. Relatively cheap eats in Freeport include China Rose (especially lunch specials and buffet), and The Corsican (Soup/Salad/Sandwiches). Also, consider grabbing sandwiches at World Deli (Rte 1 south of main drag) and picnicing at Wolfe's Neck Park (short drive from Freeport, great walking/hiking on Casco Bay).

        1. The Sea Basket in Wiscasset

          1. Sandwiches at Megunticook Market in Camden out on Mountain Street on the way to the lake and the hiking trails at Maiden Cliff. Great sandwiches there or get some cheese and fresh foccacia they get from Cafe Miranda.
