The friendliest food cart in Charlottesville!

About Us

Owners: Troy & Maxicelia Robinson

The idea for Order Up started when me and my wife walking on the Downtown Mall on our first lunch date as a married couple. We had two Italian sausages at a hotdog cart. I thought it would be a good business to get into, and she gave me the seed money for my idea… because she believed in me. Five years later we own: a hotdog cart, a food cart, a 26-foot mobile commercial kitchen, and a delivery car, and we have helped put a friend of ours in business under our namesake.

In addition to Order Up, we also co-host the In My Humble Opinion radio show, and I host The Body radio show on Sundays.

Stop by our food cart, or contact us to cater your next event.

“The owners remind me of my aunt and uncle home cooked food that is always fresh and delicious! Excellent service and is very convenient if you work downtown on the mall!”


“I was so happy to see brisket on their menu! It was delicious, perfectly cooked—tender and each slice had the perfect amount of perfectly rendered fat. (Did I mention it was perfect? Clearly I enjoyed my lunch here 😊)”
