Years ago, Long Islanders hankering for lobster rolls would have to drive almost as far as Montauk to get a fix.

Some are made with the meat pulled from local lobsters, others with lobster meat brought in from Canada. Here are some favorites, from East Rockaway to the East End. --Compiled by Joan Reminick
