Angie’s Lobster rolls out first brick-and-mortar location in Mesa
PHOENIX – Angie’s Lobster took another step toward bringing affordable lobster to the Valley masses by launching its first brick-and-mortar location on Tuesday.
The drive-thru at Signal Butte and Guadalupe roads in Mesa is now open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Angie’s Lobster is the latest venture from the family that founded, and eventually sold, the Salad And Go chain.
The new business was built on efficiency to keep expenses down, allowing it to sell lobster roll-based meals for under 10 bucks. Prices include fries and a beverage.
Customers have three choices for their Maine lobster, which is served on a toasted and buttered bun.
Two — warm lobster with butter and chilled lobster tossed in mayonnaise — are priced at $9.99, while a fried lobster tail version goes for $7.99.
Drink options, which cost 79 cents when purchased separately, are limited to iced tea (unsweetened or lightly sweetened), lemonade and Angie’s Energy Drink.
Angie’s Lobster appeared on the scene in November 2021 with a food truck in Tempe at Baseline and Hardy roads, where a permanent location is expected to open in October of this year.
Including the Mesa and Tempe sites, the business aims to have eight restaurants up and running across the Valley by early next year.
Here are the other locations and their targeted opening dates, per to the Angie’s Lobster website:
