The Maine lobster roll's exact date of creation is not known; however, historians have noted that it must have been after 1912, when hot dog buns began commercial production. While there is debate about whether to butter or smear with mayo and whether to serve hot or cold, most Maine lobster rolls consist of a buttered, grilled hot dog bun with chilled lobster meat. Sometimes (but not always), the lobster is topped with celery, onion, and chives.
