The food is always good for the price. I order smaller meals so I have room for the wonderful ice cream. The staff always recognizes us with a smile.

Very quaint and very busy. Wait wasn't too long. You sign your name on a pad of paper when you go in for a table. The caprese sandwich was delicious. The onion rings are better than the French fries. French fries aren't crisp. I like...More

We went to Betsy's for lunch. It was crowded and we had to wait for seating, but it was worth the wait. Everything was very good, especially dessert!

This is generally a good restaurant and very vegetarian friendly (they can also accommodate GF customers). They do occasionally run out of veggie burgers, service can be mixed, and the quality of cooking can be iffy but is overall good. Good place for kids.

Description
It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
