This sandwich avoids the common lobster roll pitfalls of too much mayo or a paltry serving of actual lobster chunks. There is mayonnaise, certainly, but it is spread on the roll itself instead of mixed with the lobster, which allows the sweet and buttery lobster taste to shine through.

Bub City may seem to be all about barbecue and country music, but the lobster roll proves that real attention is given to the seafood offerings.
