Move over burgers, tacos and empanada trucks, we have Lobster in the house!
The Red Zeppelin is rockin' the best Lobster roll on the Miami food truck scene. And every Tuesday from 5 to 9 p.m. at Haulover Beach Park, this red zinger serves hearty chunks of Maine lobster with a whole claw on top of every roll.
Bob Barnett was a motorcycle builder in Fort Lauderdale and Robyn Rathmon, his mom, had just retired from being a graphic artist when they saw a missing link in the food truck scene. After chowing down at a few local trucks they came up with the idea for a specialty lobster mobile.
The menu currently consists of the lobster roll ($14), lobster salad ($14), lobster bisque ($8) and lobster mac n cheese ($12).
After working to come up with a solid mayonnaise and spice base, they rolled out onto the scene in a bright red food truck named after their favorite rock 'n' roll band, Led Zeppelin.
