Shaking beef banh mi - Dinosaurs
Sliced beef sauteed with onions and vinaigrette, pickled carrot and daikon radishes, cilantro, cucumber, jalapeno, and mayo on a French baguette. $5.39

This sandwich was good, but not one of my favorites at Dinosaurs. The beef wasn’t as flavorful as some of the other fillings they have available.

Cajun lobster roll – Lobster ME

Cajun lobster roll - Lobster ME
Maine lobster with cajun spices, seasoned mayo, spicy butter and fresh lemon on toasted New England-style split-top bun served with Cajun garlic fries. $21
Lobster ME, Las Vegas NV

Sadly, this lobster roll didn’t have a lot of the cajun flavor that was advertised in the menu description. The fries tasted ok but were limp and greasy.

The original “Maine Style” lobster roll – Lobster ME

The original Maine Style lobster roll - Lobster ME
Maine lobster served with a touch of mayo and lemon and topped with secret spice blend on toasted New England-style split-top bun. Medium $17
Lobster ME, Las Vegas NV

This sandwich was just OK. The lobster quality was marginal, definitely from previously frozen lobster since it had a squishy texture. The spice blend they used was tasty, but the sandwich did not have enough lobster flavor. You mostly tasted butter.

Grilled pork sandwich – Pho Big Bowl

Grilled pork sandwich - Pho Big Bowl
Banh mi thit heo nuong. French bread with grilled pork, cucumber, mayonnaise, pickled daikon and carrots, jalapeno, and cilantro. $4.85
Pho Big Bowl, Seattle WA

This was a pretty sizeable sandwich for costing less than five bucks! That’s why I love banh mi’s, they tend to be delicious and a great value. The pork on this sandwich was tender and flavorful.
