Unique truck and great food

Just stopping to see this old truck is worth it, but the seafood is mouthwateringly delicious. Ample food portions, even for sharing. This is our summer treat, fried clams, fries, iced tea at the red picnic tables watching the tourist traffic roll by.

Been here several times and just love the food. We often split the fried haddock dinner and it is plenty for lunch. Feel kind of bad for employees in truck cooking on summer days. They do a great job!

OK so you want a lobster roll with a great ocean view, well this isn't it. But this is one of the best if not the best roll in the greater Kennebunk area. Want an ocean view load the car with beach chairs and a table and get'em to go, bring your own, I do. They own one of the... More

We decided to stop after having seen the truck at Brimfield before and reading the reviews. Best decision ever. We stopped just after opening on a Sunday and all was quiet. Not for long. Obvious that the locals love the place and that is usually a good sign. Our visit turned into a party. The girls running the operation were... More

Found this truck by accident...so glad we did. Great lunch! The lobster rolls were LOBSTER, not a heavy mayo filler. The buns were excellent. The fried clams, with belly, were cooked perfectly. Definitely a great stop!!!

We were leaving Kennebunk, ME and looking for a place for lunch, when I spied this bright red and white food truck. It had some clean, red picnic tables on a wooden platform nearby and a place to park. So I said to myself, why not. We were not disappointed. We both got the cold lobster rolls with coleslaw and...

On our first day in Kennebunk after a long drive, we didn't want the usual sit-down restaurant. On our way to the grocery store, we notice this big red food truck. Always wanted to try one, so we did. I had the best clam roll every. The last one I had this good was in New Brunswick. The cole-slaw was... More

TIP: CASH only OK. I have been on a quest to find the best lobster roll. This trip, this would have to go to The Ocean Roll in Kennebunk at the corner of Portland and Ross. The food truck (not a typo) rolls in from 11a-8p 7 days a week. You can have your roll with or without lettuce and... More

This truck parked in a parking lot in front of an old building doesn't look that much from the street, but wait till you taste the lobster rolls and the fresh seafood... fantastic! We ordered by phone 15 minutes ahead of time and then went by to pick the food up. Everything was freshly cooked. The lobster rolls are excellent... More

We drive by this "Lunch Wagon" several times a week (in Kennebunk not Kennebunkport) and decided to give it a try rather than fight the Fourth of July traffic and crowds to go to our favorite fried seafood place. We've heard good reviews from friends and we'll add our own positive review to theirs. We had a fried clam box... More
