Can an inexpensive lobster roll be good?

I'm going to answer my own question and say yes. Now, I've had my fair share of $20+ lobster rolls and they have all been delicious. However, when it came to a lobster roll going for $10.95, I found myself apprehensive. My thought was how can they possibly offer a decent roll for that price. Well, Sonny's in Adams Village has been doing it this past week and I've ordered it twice. Served traditionally on a toasted hot dog roll, this sandwich was filled with sweet lobster, both tail and claw meat and very light on the mayo. I'm impressed!! You can have it with either potato salad or fruit. While, I like the potato salad at Sonny's I had the fruit, 2 large slices of cantalope and a good size piece of watermelon. I'm wondering if Sonny's might have some new people in the kitchen as well, because earlier in the week I had the steak and cheese wrap, which, while I've always thought it was pretty good, this time it was excellent. So, I just thought I would share -- Now does anyone else know of some good cheap lobster rolls?
