Cousins Maine Lobster

Posted by DID 14 Jul 2015 One Comment

The Cousins Maine Lobster truck serves up fresh Maine lobster rolls in a chilled/mayo version or a hot, butter (Connecticut-stye) version. They also offer lobster and shrimp tacos, clam chowder, lobster bisque, tater tots covered in lobster and cilantro cream and the classic Maine dessert – whoopie pies.

This is a locally-owned truck that is a part of a bigger Cousins Maine Lobster franchise, that many folks might remember from their turn on the popular show Shark Tank. Apparently they have a direct connection with some lobstermen in Maine and a guaranteed fresh supply of the much sought-after crustacean.

We tracked them down at Fullsteam this past Sunday afternoon and by 6 pm they were out of pretty much everything but lobster rolls. Relatively petit buttered rolls are stuffed with a good heaping of fresh lobster and will run you a reasonable $14 (it’s fresh lobster in NC).

Paired with a Fullsteam shandy, it made the perfect summer evening snack.

This was their first time in Durham outside of a food truck rodeo. The incredibly nice couple, the Kellers, who part own the truck were out of the truck greeting guests and checking to ensure we were happy with our meal. Both assured us that they have regular plans to park outside of Fullsteam and other spots in Durham. I’ve heard lots of tales of long lines and long wait times at this truck, but at Fullsteam there was only a four person line and we were chowing down within 10 minutes of walking up.

    I got some Cousins Maine Lobster in Los Angeles by Cedars-Sinai, it was delicious. Glad to see the business expand out here
