    I love mayo so I like it on anything. Well, almost anything. Especially a little just to bind the lobster meat. Used to be Heinz, but for the past few years it's been Trader Joe's organic. Don't forget to butter the hot dog roll before grilling it, though!

      No mayo! Gotta have a hot buttered lobster roll!

        I'm slightly crazed on this one.

        Lobster rolls have lobster (preferably- hot, freshly steamed) in them with possible fixings on the side. Butter, lemon and a bit of pepper for me.

        Lobster salad rolls have mayo and any other fillers the chef would like.

          Hmmmm.... curious. I never order a lobster salad roll. My LS is always on a plate. However I love lobster rolls..... with mayo. Sad but truly yummy!

            So that's what I am a "mayoholic" ( will not be recovering anywhere soon )

            You know.... I've not had a lot of Lobster Roll experiences in my life. I shun mayo in copious amounts, and don't really want too much of it mucking up my lobster either... so...I'll vote no.

              I usually make the lobster rolls myself and like a very small amount of mayo to keep it together and a tiny pinch of celery seed.
