The new Angie’s Lobster will open to the public Tuesday, August 30 at 10am.
Founded by the founders of Salad & Go, Tony and Roushan Christofellis, their new Angie’s Lobster chain will introduce Arizonans to drive-thru lobster rolls with a location at Signal Butte and Guadalupe, just south of the new Someburros and Salad & Go restaurants.
Tony’s mother Angie Christofellis was the inspiration behind the new concept, where the couple seeks to bring luxury food at a lower price point. Their menu includes the Lobster Roll Meal with either chilled or warm and buttered wild-caught Maine/Canadian Lobster in a toaster and butter bun, served with frys and a drink for just $9.99. Patrons can also select a Lobster Finger Meal with fried and breaded lobster with fries and a drink for $9.99.
The company is able to provide lower priced lobster by a unique buying strategy direct to distributors. “We buy visually imperfect lobster, but it tastes the same,” says their website. “We don’t mind if a claw is broken – do you?”
Like Aldi, they are low-frills. “We don’t give out paper receipts; no salt, no sugar, no pepper packets, and no condiments. Our lobster meals are craveable as is and best with Angie’s sauce.” The sauce is included.
