At the halfway point of a shopping trip on Route 1 with a friend at lunchtime, we decided to have lunch at Betty’s Kitchen. We’d been there before.

Betty’s Kitchen is in an older building. It has one room with a counter and stools which gave it a diner-style atmosphere. It has a seat-yourself main dining room with booths and tables that had menus at the ready in holders.

There’s a sliding glass door in the middle of one wall of the main dining room that gives a view of a grassy yard with a few trees.

Breakfast was served until 2:00 PM. The closing was 2:30 PM.

Drink orders were taken promptly.

The menu had two pages of standard breakfast items and two pages of standard lunch items including soup, salad, sandwiches, and a few hot diners. All the meals were at family-friendly prices.

My friend ordered the Hamburger Plate with Texas Toast plus beans and potato salad for sides. The meal was $8.00. She also had a cup of Soup of the Day which was Chicken Sausage Vegetable at $3.00. I ordered the Lobster Roll with French Fries at Market Price.

It was about a 10-minute wait for the food.

The soup was thick and rich. My friend enjoyed that, her hamburger plate, and the two sides.

My lobster roll had a good amount of lobster meat. About half of it was in good-size chunks; the other half was mashed. I’d requested minimal mayo, and the kitchen provided just that. The roll was toasted nicely. The French fries were rustic with a lot of skins still on them. They tasted better than they looked. They were not greasy at all.

We both enjoyed our meals. Service was good. The place was clean.

We rate Betty’s Kitchen at 4.25. We would eat there again.

An almost complete waste. Stopped for late breakfast on the way from Hampton Beach to Newmarket. Should have gone somewhere else.

Pros: An eatable order of french toast.
Con: EVERYTHING else.
- Place has the ambiance of an old trailer in an old trailer park. If it's trying for nostalgia its success is gritty squalor.
- Staff pleasant enough but dressed like "crap". One waitress had very short cut jeans which, on her somewhat junoesque figure did NOT look good.
- Were rushed out with bill even as we were still eating.
- Hash brown with eggs was a disaster. The potatoes were all burned to charcoal. Eggs ok but hash was tasteless and greasy.
- Prices similar to much better establishments therefore one cannot even think of economy as a reason for stopping here.

If you like to discover great non-chain places to get good food at good prices, in a genuinely friendly atmosphere, try Betty ' s. I think we went there years ago once but rediscovered it today, after a drive to the coast to see the sunrise.
People were at the counter and at a few tables in the small dining room. A man that might have been the owner greeted us warmly and was chatting with some older ladies already enjoying their breakfasts.
We both chose the lobster and steak tip eggs Benedict, after starting with a hot cocoa topped with a light, fluffy whip cream topper.
The eggs were cooked just right, the Hollandaise sauce was excellent, the lobster pieces were not too small and the steak was pretty good, too.
Our server was friendly and efficient. Price was reasonable.
The building is small and the dining room is not fancy but it was clean and warm.

Always like the food. Monday has a hamburg and fries special for $5.00 or $5.95 dressed. We go almost every Monday. Breakfast are good and so are lunches. You can get tator tots here if you want them and I usually do. Good basic food and good quality.
The real high point here is the help. Great people who are fast, efficient, and super friendly.
