Since 2012, The Maine Lobster Lady has been one of the Valley's most popular mobile eateries. Serving fresh Maine lobster in the form of lobster rolls, lobster bisque, lobster salad, and even lobster mac 'n' cheese, the food truck often draws long lines of desert dwellers looking to get a taste of East Coast goodness. The only problem is, of course, that the Lobster Lady takes a summer hiatus, during which time she heads back East to Isle au Haut.
Well, lobster lovers, the hiatus is over. And as of last weekend, The Maine Lobster Lady is back in town.
You'll be able to find her this weekend at the Great American Foodie Fest Arizona, which is being held at Tempe Diablo Stadium (2200 West Alameda Drive) Friday, November 13 to Sunday, November 15.
In addition to the well-loved Maine Lobster Lady, the event will feature more 50 trucks from all over the country, including Middle Feast, winners of the Great Food Truck Race Season 5; Waffle Luv, runner-up of the Great Food Truck Race Season 6; Southern Comfort Express from Food Network and Cooking Channel; and The Grilled Cheese Truck from Eat St. There will be also be carnival rides, midway games, live entertainment, a beer garden, eating contests, vendor booths, and more.
Tickets to the festival cost $12 in advance and cover all three days of the festival. Tickets for one-day admission will cost $15 at the door. For more information about the Great American Foodie Fest Arizona, visit the event website.
After this weekend's event, you'll be able to find The Maine Lobster Lady on Friday, November 20 at the Gilbert Food Truck Food Court (385 North Gilbert Road) and on Saturday, November 21 at Pioneer Park (526 East Main Street) in Mesa from 5:30 to 9 p.m.
