Bang for your Lobster Roll Buck: Bob’s Clam Hut

East Coast, Sandwiches By September 21, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

The Vitals:
the spot: Bob’s Clam Hut 315 US route 1 Kittery ME 03904
the eats: Jumbo Lobster Roll
the bucks: $24.95
the full nelson: a sandwich splurge worth every bite

In the world of Lobster Rolls, Bob’s Clam Hut isn’t the cheapest deal around; that title is held by Sullivan’s which we featured in Cheap Eats Boston. But it sure does make a case for one heck of a sandwich splurge. No, the $25 sandwich won’t have you rolling on the floor from the pangs of overeating, but it is unadulterated seafood indulgence at its finest. And it all starts with showcasing the whole point of a $20+ sandwich . . . the lobster.

Yeah, cheesesteaks get all the credit, but the Roast Pork sandwich is as Philly as the original Rocky. That being said, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get your fill of a good cheesesteak and at John’s Roast Pork, you certainly will find one of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia.

Cheap Eats ~ New Haven

Cheap Eats, East Coast By June 27, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Home to the most OG burger spot in the world and sporting a pizza style that makes New Yorkers swoon, I would move to New Haven out of foodie principles if I could handle the cold and had the GPA to live that close to Yale University. But since it makes for a the perfect pit stop in between NYC and Boston, I know I will be back. And pizza is just the tip of the Cheap Eats iceberg. So with that let’s take a big second bite of Cheap Eats New Haven!

Cheap Eats ~ Boston

Cheap Eats, East Coast By April 15, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

If I had to choose a coast I would have to choose the West. I lived out there so don’t go there. But that don’t mean a brother can’t feast in the East. Ok, so that isn’t entirely true as I would love to hang my trucker hat in NYC someday but nothing wrong with quoting a little Biggie Smalls. And there ain’t nothing wrong with shining a light on the Boston food scene, which is at once historic and trending with some new foodie fads. Seems like gentrification is happening all over the map and Beantown is no exception. Finding a delicious mix of new and old in Boston is as easy as saying yes to burgers for breakfast. Oh and speaking of burgers for breakfast . . .

Cheap Eats ~ Philadelphia

Cheap Eats, East Coast By March 29, 2018 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

City of Brotherly Grub. Yes, Philadelphia is truly a grand land of Cheap Eats and frankly could not be a better place to begin the fourth season of Cheap Eats. Philly is a special town for me, a veritable second hometown as this is where my wife hails from. In general I love the East Coast: the history, the diversity and die hard food traditions. Ask someone from Philly where the best hoagie is and you will get an earful. Get ’em started on how their high end dining spots can compete with NYC and you can pretty much give up the next few hours of your day. And unless you are the Pope or Santa Claus, or a NY Giants fan(or Cowboys), it is an easy town to root for. So what can $35 get you around here? Well, I’m glad you asked . . .

Burlington in Requiem

Cheap Eats, East Coast By October 16, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , , No Comments

Boys and Girls, welcome to the Season Finale of Cheap Eats brought to you by the killer food scene and all around good vibes of Burlington, Vermont. Now I had never been to Burlington before, but I spent too many years listening to Phish and watching pals trot off to UVM(University of Vermont) to not have some idea of the potential here. First off, in June, Burlington is a beautiful place and we were lucky to catch a music festival while we were shooting here. Great beer scene, great restaurants and great music; Burlington reminded me a lot of my current home of Austin. And Lake Champlain? Truly gorgeous. I could not have asked for a better close to season 3 so get ready to take one last big bite of Cheap Eats Burlington baby!
