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.
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.

8 Reasons it is BETTER to Go with BETTER
100% Fresh, Seasonal and Chef prepared…Because it tastes BETTER.
Great food!!! Schnitzel was amazing!! Brussel sprouts and crab cake were really good too!! You won’t be disappointed!
Excellent chicken sandwiches. I like the spicy Memphis
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.
When in Chincoteague, I always stop at Better and order my favorite menu item: Shrimp & Grits. They have a variety of choices on their menu. The food is fresh and large portions.
Best food on the island for sure! Everything I’ve had has been amazing but my absolute favorite is the caprese salad! Chef Justin is able to cater to all diet restrictions and taste!
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 ?.
Excellent food. I stopped by twice this weekend and it's now a go to place for me. Great pork schnitzel and some of the best brussel sprouts.
Had The Caprese Sandwich! Very good. Amazing bread. Fast service. All around excellence! Couldn’t have asked for a BETTER experience!!!
Fresh ingredients, clean atmosphere, and delicious food! Complemented by kind and courteous staff. Can't really ask for more!
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!
just got a tenderloin sandwich and wow it was goooood,
First visit and so pleased. WE will be back many times. Delicious.
Been several times. Never disappointed. Glad to see them opening up for another season.
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.
Had the vegetable beef soup, filled with beef and veggies...great flavor!!! Also, the meatloaf bowl was awesome..great mashed potatoes! Awesome meal!
Chicken Alfredo is wonderful! Thank you very much
Great food. Creative combinations. Friendly folks.
Best crab cake since the original owner of Woody’s sold her place. This gentleman makes most of his own bread, and cares about good/better food.
Delicious, fresh, homemade food. Brussels sprouts are to die for.
Very accommodating, great friendly service and awesome food!! Your Seafood Linguine was absolutely scrumptious!! Looking forward to trying your other items! Thanks Chef Justin!! See you again soon!!
very pleased with our dinner here! everyone enjoyed their food, our kids included! I asked about gluten free options and the chef came out talked me through the menu items that were gluten free or could be gluten free. he said there is a dedicated fryer for brussel sprouts and potato dish. we will definitely be eating here again!! specials were awesome! brussel sprouts were the best we've had!! enjoy ?
Ate at Better for the first time today and it did not disappoint!! I had the ESVA Cobb salad and my husband had the NY Strip steak sandwich and the potato rocket! Everything was outstanding! Will definitely be going back!!!
food was delicious well prepared and reasonably priced
the crab cakes... the schnitzel... amazing food! and cool people.
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!
Excellent food and service! Don’t miss it!
Best crab cake sandwich I've found, and the service was top notch. was down for a week and went there every night after I tried it
Amazing food some of the best food I've ever tasted. I highly recommend everyone to stop by and try it. Friendly and great service. The food is better than any high dollar restaurant on the island.
Amazing food, great portions, and excellent prices. So happy to see a food truck with eco-friendly aspects, too. The owner is super friendly and there are tables with umbrellas if you choose to eat there. Highly recommended a must try if you’re on Chincoteague island!
Gourmet. Fast. Brilliant.
The Cobb salad and fried brussel sprouts were delicious! Can’t wait to try other menu items!
