This place is awesome. Went there for lunch, had the October special of chicken noodle soup and mini single size pumpkin pie. Along with side of herb chips and dipping sauce. Omgosh sooo good and had leftovers. Affordable and super friendly staff. Will be going again. Oh and used a coupon they sent me via email. Bonus.

We have eaten here in the past and food was always top notch. Recent visit was less than great. Chicken strips were like oversized McDonald's chicken nuggets. Very disappointing.


They're GF grilled cheese was good and their soup was yummy as well

Thank you Better than Mama’s! You did a wonderful job again catering our annual event for Salem Friends of Felines. We have been getting so many comments on how yummy the food was! Thank you for making the event special! All we have to say is nacho cheese fountain! Meow!

One of the best places in Salem with the friendliest staff. Can't say enough good things about this place. I've never been disappointed and they have such a nice selection to choose from. Their Korean cheesesteak is delicious and I absolutely love their BLAT wrap.Don't get me started on their pita chips and bacon chipotle ranch either haha. Those totchos too! Honestly just wow. It's hard to find a place where there's something for everyone but Better than Mama's delivers! And they are some of the nicest people I've ordered from. Doesn't matter the wait time, they are absolutely worth it.10/10


Their seasonal peach Arnold Palmer, probably the best drink I've had in a long time. Very delicious. The fries are very unique, but very good as well. The burger was cooked perfectly and fantastic. Will be eating here again

Was being tortured all day at a car dealership, so I really needed a delicious vegetable sandwich. I found BTM's and ordered the roasted veggie and goat cheese as a wrap (Farmer's something? lol) for pickup. I loved how you could choose all your food options. Such a nice system. My food was ready when I arrived and the checkout process was super fast. The bread they used for the wrap was DELICIOUS, the veggies were perfectly cooked, the goat cheese was delightful, the tortilla chips were amazing and seemed like they made them on-site, and the hotchi salsa was soooo good. My entire meal was outstanding and I'm looking forward going back to try more food. I'm sad I'm not eating it again right now.

The food is great. It tastes super fresh and is super well made. My work bought this for us for lunch and then I had to go and get some for my family that same evening. Great food and a good price.

4 stars for fast and friendly service. Food fine. It worked for a quick sandwich on the road.

Yummy, fresh, good price, innovative and simple. Had sesame ginger chicken wrap, Caesar chicken wrap and California club sandwich + herb pita chips and mango lemonade. All delicious.

Good food. Inside could use some help with decoration, but everything else was nice. I'd recommend the totchos. Very tasty. Also the fresh pita chips are surprisingly tasty.

We recently moved to Salem and we are a family that LOVES sandwiches. My daughter found this wonderful sandwich shop on line and said they had good reviews with a wide variety of foods for all of us. She's vegan, I'm vegetarian, dad and brother eat anything. She was spot on. Great service, delicious food & ready for p/u fast. Get the herbed pita chips (they're soft & chewy) with edamame hummus. OMG amazing. Also we got a sweet "welcome to Salem" surprise. We ordered the Cod po boy, farmers wrap, Korean cheesesteak sandwich. All were amazing.
