  1. Don't know if it's still on but 99 Ranch had them for $5.99 lb for the last several weeks. They average about 1.5 lb.

      It was $9.99/lb last night at the Arcadia 99 Ranch.

    2. You're gunna need a bigger pot.

      1. I did some research on this a year or so ago. 99 Ranch is priced low, but Lax-C (downtown) or Shun Fat in El Monte were lower.

        Arcadia supermarket is also pretty cheap.

        Call and find out. Let us know what you find.

          I called all three before I had posted. I could not get anyone on the phone that understood what I was asking.

              There is a Shun Fat in Monterrey Park (on Atlantic) with the same prices as El Monte. Live (Main or Boston) lobsters. Smaller ones can be 6.99-7.99. Larger ones are more.

        2. Current Shun Fat price is 7.99
