Lobster roll hear I-93 north?
Next month, I'm arriving at South Station, renting a car, and driving up to New Hampshire to meet some friends for a ski trip. My train gets in around lunch time, and I have a hankering for a real lobster roll. However, I don't want to have to drive all around Boston, I'd like to know if there are any places I can find one that aren't too fa off I-93. I 'm renting the car at Government Center, and as I recall, I make 2 or 3 turns somewhere near the North End, and immediately descend into the tunnel, and then shoot across some river and I'm on 93.
I've checked some of the pre-existing posts about lobster rolls in Boston, and I don' think anyone has anything for Charlestown, Somerville, Medford, etc. (or even further into suburbia, surely suburbanites in Boston like lobster rolls, too.) Going over to Yankee Lobster might be an option, if there's parking, although it's a bit out of the way. Any suggestions are welcome.
I'd go to James Hook. You can either walk there from South Station and then walk/taxi to Gov't center (depending on the amount of luggage), or rent your car and park in their lot. You can hop onto I-93 right there, and it'll be a shorter detour than anything in the suburbs.

I'd walk to James Hook before I got the car.
But if you get the car Yankee Lobster really isn't much out of the way. Its very near the Xpressway.
Legal Harborside is a short drive from South Station area and parking would be OK during the weekends, weekdays could be tough. They have a great lobster roll plate.
