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!

You can find The BETTER Menu for Each Day on here, as well as Facebook and Instagram.

  • positive review  Great food!!! Schnitzel was amazing!! Brussel sprouts and crab cake were really good too!! You won’t be disappointed!

    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 Vicki Mabe Reeves

    positive review  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.

    thumb Suzanne D'Ambrose

    positive review  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!

    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 ?.

    thumb Janice Miller

  • 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 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

    thumb Sheila David Coulbourne

    positive review  A family of 7, we just had a delicious dinner from Better. Everyone found something they liked from the menu, and each item was fresh and delicious, prepared with quality ingredients and attention to detail. We had the crab cake, burger, Cobb salad, steak sandwich (2), and schnitzel (2), along with Brussels and potatoes. Sides were large enough to share, and the burger and an order of the schnitzel were large enough to split for the kids. Very impressed and will definitely be back!

    thumb Laura Rockwell

    positive review  Amazing food and reasonable prices

    thumb Shaleen Manoil Anderson

    positive review  Good stuff! Everything I have had here has been great.

    thumb Michael Williamson

    positive review  I’ve eaten here several times and each time it just gets better (see what I did there?). Seriously though..:this is five star quality restaurant food at a food truck. Treat yourself to the lobster when they have it on the menu it is absolutely delicious. The bow tie pasta with chicken is very good and the steak sandwich is perfectly seasoned. Now to discuss the staff...outstanding in every way.

    thumb Billy Cummings
  • positive review  Homegrown, vegan food: you don't often find it so delicious! The staff is really kind and will give you vegetarian and vegan choices!

    thumb Alina Fiehn

    positive review  Better. is absolutely delicious and Chef Justin makes the experience all that much more awesome. The Brussels sprouts are as delicious as they look and the crab cake sandwich really hits the spot! I can't recommend this place enough. Great food and awesome service!

    thumb Lissy Seligman

    positive review  Thank you for roasting your own real turkey. I stopped in to be sure what I heard was true, and you reassured me that and you were even in the process of roasting another turkey when I was there. I choose not to eat over processed lunch meat turkey. The Roasted Turkey Sandwich was moist, flavorful and super duper delicious. I now have a new favorite sandwich! I paired it with a Veggie Bow Tie Pasta. I was going to save for later, but I’ll admit I did not. Thank you for your views on making fresh and good for you food.

    thumb Sue Moore Steward

    positive review  Dropped by ‘Better’ today for the first time. Thank you Justin and Colton for the delicious Chicken and Strawberry Salad — and we loved the burger on brioche (with the fresh bright toppings), too! Justin changes up the menu (weekly I think), with a focus on offering fresh seasonal produce. Liked the kind personal touch of this family-run business. Picnic tables with umbrella covered seating available, if you decide to eat outdoors. We’ll be back tomorrow, to pick up lunch on our way to the beach. A great addition to the food choices on Chincoteague. Thanks again!

    thumb Barb Brandt

    positive review  Just picked up dinner and lunch for tomorrow for Hubs and I from the new Food Truck called Better . Got the Pork Cutlets for his dinner, the Pesto Chicken and Bow Tie Pasta for my dinner and the Strawberry Chicken Salad for Hubs to take to lunch tomorrow. Unfortunately the Brussels Sprouts didn't make it for a picture because I ATE them ALL on the way back to house ? A total do over!!! Hope you have an awesome Summer here!!

    thumb Amanda Jimmo Watson

    positive review  We ate here tonight and were quite impressed. The food was unique and really well designed. The Brussels sprouts were awesome and we loved the balsamic reduction they used. The rocket potatoes were a well presented and fun take on fries (also tasted great). The ny strip sandwich was fantastic with excellent bread,nice greens, and a cool interaction between the cheese and beef. Really well done we are excited to make this a regular part of our Chincoteague restaurant rotation!
