The hot lobster roll, invented in Milford, Connecticut, in 1929, is held to high standards at Lenny & Joe's. It isn't a gigantic sandwich, but its taste is huge.

A sign on the menu warned that whole belly clams were running small the September day I stopped in. No problem. Each had enough marine succulence to be a mighty mouthful, with none of the overbearing avoirdupois of a clam with a too-large belly.

There were so many clams on my clam dinner that I worried I wouldn't be able to finish all the onion rings. I should have known better. These crispy critters beckon until the last little crumb of crust is lifted off its cardboard plate.

The super size portion of the Fried Gulf Shrimp dinner can easily be shared by two people.  32 medium size shrimp, a large portion of french fries, and a portion of coleslaw round out the portion.  All for $15.95.
