Thanks Addie but both styles of Hot Dog Buns are commonly available in our markets. Sometimes you can only find the top ones. We have several famously popular Hot Dog Restaurants here, Lafleurs, La Belle Province, Valentines, and the "steamy" is probably the most ordered one. Not to mention their French Fries... best in the world!

oops forgot to mention - they only serve on the top split ones.

I believe the traditional roll is a split top "hot dog" style roll, but IMO, any soft roll will do.

The best lobster rolls that I've had anywhere was when we were up to visit our friends George and Barbara up in Kennebunkport at The Clam Shack: Home - The Clam Shack

The last time we were there, we ate at the shack every single day for a week. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING on the menu was awesome.
The original Clam Shack is located in Ipswich, MA up on the North Shore. It is shaped like a clam box.

Lobster.... on a bun? Lobster? On a bun? With Mayo?

Why would anyone do that to a lobster? I am mixed on even having melted butter with it....

On a bun? My mind boggles....

I've seen what you guys do to crabmeat. You're not in any position to complain.

Think of a seafood salad. Like a crab salad. Only instead of having a seafood salad on a plate by itself sitting on a large leave of lettuce, it is put in a bun.

Now some places get carried away with how it is supposed to be made, but the original was invented by the Maine Diner just over the border from New Hampshire. There is nothing fancy about it, just lobster and a small amount of mayo or melted butter. The chunks of lobster are very large.

Addie, there are dozens of clam shacks all up and down the coast. The Clam Box has only been around since '51. There are many that have come and gone since the founding of our country.

I used to use this book as a guide whenever we travel nawth along the coast on a weekend driving adventure (when my wife and I were just dating):
