This iconic spot is the perfect 'road trip worthy" Maine destination!

With summer knocking on the door, without a doubt, this is the time where lots of people take a well-deserved vacation from the daily grind and hit the open road. If you are headed out of town to explore some cool Maine traditions, and you love lobster rolls, we found a perfect fit.

The Taste of Maine restaurant, located at 161 Main Street, in Woolwich, opens today, for their 46th season!

The Taste of Maine restaurant has been serving up delicious seafood since 1978. They have a few claims to fame, one being a giant inflatable lobster that sits on top of the roof, and covers about 75% of it, and the other is their claim that they serve "The World’s Largest Lobster Roll."

These bad boys are 22-inches long, and it has become a dare that many customers have taken on over the years. In fact, should you finish this beast, you become an official member of "The Clean Plate Club" which based on the sheer size of this lobster roll, is no easy feat.

Here are their Spring hours:

Wednesday-11:30 to 8
Thursday-11:30 to 8
Friday-11:30 to 8
Saturday-11:30 to 8
Sunday-11:30 to 8

One of the great things about Taste of Maine, is that people love to take videos of themselves attempting to polish these ridiculously huge lobster rolls off, including a Guinness World Records title holder, for "World's Largest Mouth Gape"

To give you an idea of just how long Taste of Maine has been doing their thing, we found a TV commercial that dates all the way back to 1978!
