The Best Food
On the Island

Because what brings people together more than food? Nothing we can think of, tbh. At BETTER, we’ve handcrafted a menu full of specialty eats on the streets, using locally sourced ingredients to add to that fresh flavor.








The idea that we were going to sell freshly made foods and homemade items was the vision that we started our food truck adventure with.

Eliminating processed foods and eating fresh seasonal items was prompted by a desire to eat Better. in our home.

After a number of health issues affected our family, a more proactive approach to healthy eating was necessary. We wanted to feel Better. Look Better. so, the first step was to eat Better.  Guess what?!? It worked!!!

Caity says that Better. is home. The food she grew up eating.

Armed with an amazingly extensive knowledge of flavor and an abundance of talent for creating all types of food we challenged ourselves to find alternatives for all the processed food available to us.

The sprouts.
There was no menu until about 48 hours before we opened. That was the first chance we had to shop for our truck and the first menu was born. Armed with a TON of food and a beautiful chef kitchen that we had built from the ground up Chef Justin started creating the Better. Menu.

Family dinners are a routine in our home and even through all the construction and prep for Better. our first family dinner in the truck was the birth of the deep-fried Brussel sprouts.  Our “sprouts” were an accident of sorts. We were tired, and needed something delicious, quick and different. It also happens to be the day we turned on the fryer for the first time.

In an act of “let’s see what this will do…” sprouts were dropped into the deep fryer. A little sauce to enhance the flavor and the deep-fried Brussels sprout is born.

A Few BETTER Menu Favs

The menu changes daily so you never know what the next days menu has in store  – it’s a lot like knowing a new surprise awaits you daily.

Our menus may change frequently based upon ingredient availability from our local vendors, but will always pleasantly surpass your expectations!

    thumb Jennifer Orth-Cromer

    positive review  Excellent chicken sandwiches. I like the spicy Memphis

    thumb Dana Warfield Dillon

    positive review  The schnitzel was absolutely delicious and I followed the owner’s advice to have it on the bed of lettuce and squeeze the fresh lemon wedges on it. The flavor truly popped! The clam chowder was equally delicious and was loaded with clams! Our first time at Better and we will definitely be back.

    thumb Amanda Farrow

    positive review  Absolutely amazing fresh food. The chowder was full of clams and it was to die for ?. The turkey sandwich, which was fabulous?, came with a delicious salad. The staff was super friendly. 11/10 in my books. Can’t wait to come back to try the Shrimp N Grits for dinner ?.

  • positive review  Stopped for the Build Your Own Cookie food truck, but checked out the menu at Better first and we are glad we did! Justin's favorite clam chowder was delicious, of course I had to confirm it was Justin's favorite before ordering ?. The Brussel spouts were to DIE FOR! WARNING: they feed 2-4 people in my opinion. My husband got the Better burger and loved every bite. The potato rocket was like a yummy crispy kettle chip on a stick with a delicious dipping sauce. Mmmmmm they need to change their name from Better to Best!

    thumb Karl Haugh

    positive review  Ordered a catered lunch for workers at our project site in Princess Anne,MD and the experience, taste, and overall feeling put forward by BETTER was just amazing. Justin was on time with the food and even brought us utensils, plates, and drinks to go along with the lunch. Food was absolutely phenomenal, especially the beans, and everything came in huge portion sizes. We had so much food left over, and yet everyone was stuffed. Great food, great prices, and most importantly great people to do business with. From our experience, American Contracting & Environmental Services, recommend this business for anyone looking for flavorful food.

    thumb Kathy J. Davis

    positive review  food was delicious well prepared and reasonably priced

    thumb Kirsten Degen

    positive review  the crab cakes... the schnitzel... amazing food! and cool people.

    thumb Chris Maloney

    positive review  Incredible food, fresh and creative menu, and the owner is welcoming and friendly. It was the best food that we had on the Island the whole week we were there! We went back twice, and recommended it to all of our family and friends that were vacationing with us. I am now a converted brussel sprout fan? My only suggestion is signage that describes what kind of menu you serve...we very nearly passed right by, and we really would have missed out! Hope to see you next year!

    thumb Nicole Kirch ODonnell

    positive review  Excellent food and service! Don’t miss it!

    thumb Ruthann Elvey Mason
