Our philosophy is simple, the highest quality ingredients, in their purest form, prepared with pride and care. This is honest food. Honest food uses fresh, naturally raised ingredients which are locally sourced whenever possible. Honest food is more tasty, more nutritious and makes you feel good. We know personally many of the farmers and manufacturers of the ingredients we use and are proud to support their efforts while supporting the local economy.

We use Niman Ranch Natural Angus beef for all our burgers. Niman Ranch’s mission is to produce the finest tasting meat in the world by adhering to a strict code of traditional husbandry principles. The Niman Ranch natural protocols are as follows: All natural, no antibiotics ever, no added hormones ever, all vegetarian feeds, and humanely raised on environmentally sustainable ranches.




Martin’s Potato Rolls are the burger bun of choice on the rocket. Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. is a family owned and operated bread and roll bakery in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. They are rigorously dedicated to extraordinary taste and quality.




We serve only Yacht Club sodas. Made locally in North Providence since 1915, this family-owned business has steered clear of plastic bottles and high-fructose corn syrup. They even make their own flavoring syrups!


Pat’s Pastured was founded by Patrick and Kelly McNiff in 2002 and provides the highest quality pasture-raised and grass-fed meats. They raise 100% grass-fed beef and pasture-raised chickens, ducks, turkeys and pigs. The goal is to provide livestock with a life that allows them to express their natural instincts fully in a pastured environment.


The Backyard Food Company is a Rhode Island based food company specializing in unique heirloom recipes made with locally sourced vine ripened produce. We always have their candied jalapeño aboard ship.





Chi Kitchen kimchi is a Korean superfood made from fermented cabbage that is brined with salt and combined with chopped garlic and onions, julienned ginger and Korean red pepper, as well as the umami flavor of fish sauce. The Kimchi, produced in Pawtucket,  is fermented in small batches using only the best ingredients free of MSG, GMOs, Gluten or Preservatives. It is outrageously good on a grilled Pearl hot dog.


Lost Art Cultured Foods is a small Rhode Island food enterprise producing traditional fermented vegetables that are naturally raw, probiotic and gluten free. They use local organic vegetables and naturally occurring wild yeast to produce healthy and delicious live-culture foods. Fermented foods are special foods, full of natural probiotics that will not only delight your taste buds and bring zest to your cooking, but nourish your body and promote intestinal well-being! Their Cabbage and Caraway Sauerkraut is outstanding on hot dogs and also on our veggie burgers.


Coffee syrup is a Rhode Island tradition dating back to the 1930’s. Dave’s Coffee Syrup is 100% all natural and made in small batches. The only ingredients in their coffee syrup are cane sugar and coffee. From the roasted coffee to the bottled syrup, they do it all right here in Rhode Island. We use Dave’s syrup in our Coffee Barbecue Sauce.

    hi Rocket crew! Your philosophy and outlook on what you do and serve to your customers must feel real good. I’m am a cook myself and I’ve been cooking in different restaurants all of my life from sea food, to pub food and also sandwich shops all around Rhode island and Connecticut. It wasn’t until i started cooking at the awesome restaurant that i work for now as a line cook that, i started realizing that love and dedication to the food and way we cook that i noticed that local and fresh is the way to go. i am writing cause i was wondering how hard is it to maintain and run a food truck compared to a kitchen establishment? i am 28 years old and I’ve always wanted to have my own food truck.

    • Hi, Joe
      We knew going in that it was going to be difficult. We were prepared for it. However, in actual experience, running a successful Food Truck is twice as difficult as we anticipated, but ten times as rewarding as we had ever dreamed.
