Great Lobster Roll--Unlikely Spot!

Has anyone else tried the $9.95 lobster roll at the gas station on Route 1 in Thomaston...on the main drag in the's the station with the signs that post a revolving selection of vocabulary words, of all things. Full of lobster, not overly mayo'd and they'll toast your classic New England-style bun!

  1. They sure do make excellent Lob rolls (get two)! Also a early morn quickly sold-out breakfast sandwich roast beef/cheddar cheese/horseradish sauce on Engish muffin! Oh yeah!
    The sign out front will know as friends of O' Reilly.

        Bill O'Reilly ends his Fox show with a good shot of vocabulary.
        The roastbeef breakfast muffin has a fried egg as well, of course.

              I also prefer to get my "news" elsewhere (Stewart / Colbert primarily), but speaking of Fox News, check this out:


      2. I've always seen the sign advertising it...never stopped in. I'll have to give it a shot...thanks!
