RED’S EATS

$14.95

Worlds Best Lobster Shack

Virginia Wright, Debbie Gagnon Cronk

Hardcover, 96 pages

Description

The first and only book about the tiny red phenomenon Red’s Eats, where loyal patrons will wait for an hour or more for a rich, succulent lobster roll. Debbie Cronk, whose family has owned Red’s Eats for more than 30 years, shared stories and memorabilia for the book. Red’s has legions of fans across the U.S. because 90% of Maine tourists pass by this iconic lobster shack beside Route one in Wiscasset. As the Frommer’s review points out, this Maine roadside eatery has received more than its fair share of national ink and TV attention. Added to that are the huge number of internet postings that continue spreading the word about Red’s, many of them echoing the opinions of CNN/Money’s review: Red’s is not fancy, just perfect.
