Is the Red Hook Lobster Truck overrated?

foodwhisperer | Apr 15, 2012 10:59 PM

$20 for a lobster sandwich is a bit expensive from a truck that has little overhead. People have been raving about the lobster sandwiches, so I had to go to Carrol and 7th to try one. I ended up getting the hot lobster sandwich. It was a bit greasy from the butter and it had a very sour taste. It wasn't the lemon that made it sour. I like lemon and butter on lobster. It was something else, maybe vinegar, or maybe just something wasn't right. I didn't like it at all. I am told the cold one with more mayo on it is much better. Has anyone had similar experience?
