I can’t anything but WOW. I kept eating more and more. Try the 50/50 burger, never had anything like it. We tried everything-all most. Fried clams are best I’ve had in years. No grit, nice crisp breading and great clam flavor that is missing in...most processed clams today. Clam cake was out of this world. My partner had the haddock sandwich, huge and very satisfied customer. The Maine shrimp were excellent also. Truck itself is pretty cool. Social distancing was good. They have plenty of wipes around and the best takeout bathroom I have ever seen. Spotless. They have neat 2 person picnic tables on nice wood slat floor with awning over top. There is double couch with a teak table that could sit 6 if needed. I see a review about a bad lobster roll. I saw at least 10 go out while I was there on my 1 hr eating spree. Everyone looked like they were liking them. I think the lobster rolls look like a good deal here. 20.00 most every other place we have been.More

You'd be hard pressed to find a better Clam Basket in Maine. Lobster rolls were great. Outside Picnic tables were distanced enough for Covid 19. Friendly Staff, quick service

We've driven past this food truck often and it always seems busy so today we stopped. Got 2 cold lobster rolls with mayo for $15.50 each and a cup of clam chowder. Lobster rolls had the least amount of lobster meat I've ever had on...a lobster roll anywhere ever before. Flavor was ok, but quite peppery. Clam chowder had no clams, more like a broth with some potatoes. Flavor was ok but for $6.50 I expected clams! Overall disappointed and won't be going back. Other places are much better!More

So you see a food truck and wonder hmmm? should I stop there? YES! This lovely food truck with picnic tables serves some of the freshest sea food. We stopped and ordered swordfish sandwiches. The woman taking the order was great suggesting we order it...grilled with their own teryaki mayonnaise and fresh tomato and lettuce. We sat outside and when we were called for the sandwiches you could tell that they were cooked right then and there...not reheated. The fish was so moist and cooked to perfection So next time you are whizzing by on your way to Kennebunkport stop there for a wonderful lunch but bring cash,no credit cards acceptedMore

Accidentally found this little gem and I’m looking forward to going back. The non-seafood lovers love to the burger and hotdog. The seafood eater is in our group really enjoyed the fried shrimp roll in the warm lobster roll without mayonnaise. The prices were pretty...reasonable and are posted to their Facebook page. Personally, I found the coleslaw side to be really really good and crisp.More

This wonderful gem of a food truck is parked at the corner of Ross Road and Route 1 in Kennebunk. I've passed it many times over the years, never giving much thought because, well, it's a food truck. I stopped last weekend and ordered the...whole belly box. Oh. My. Gosh. The portion was huge (I took half home and finished it for dinner). But the BEST part was -- the flavor. The batter was light, they were perfectly cooked, and served on a bed of perfectly done French fries. The real flavor of clams came through. Very fresh; all their items are locally sourced. They weren't too chewy, like so many places that overcook their clams; these were perfect. And the server and cook were so friendly. Check this place out -- you won't be sorry!More

This is my 2nd time here. We looked forward since last summer as we found this place coming thru here. We made a day trip to come here. The hot buttery lobster roll is the best I’ve ever tasted and it’s my favorite place for...it. We definitely will come here again.More

Fast friendly service. You can order there or call in. Good selection and reasonably priced. They have tables with umbrellas also. Love their Scallops.

Stopped on the way home, the lobster rolls were excellent and the 50/50 dinner of shrimp and claims was great. There was ample fries to go with it. Cost is the same as when we stoped 2 years ago, between mid & high range, but...well worth the price.More

It is a 1961, but you have to look for it. Great lobster rolls and seafood. Nice picnic tables to sit and eat.
