Great dogs, greater cheese fries

Come for the dogs, stay for the cheese fries! O'Betty's makes an amazing specialty hot dog (I loved the Mata Hari), but the cheese fries honestly might be the best of the bunch.

If you are looking for a different way to have your hot dog-look no further! They have a great selection of hot dogs and sausage sandwiches with exotic burlesque names, from the Dixie dog with chili sauce to the Sophie an excellent bratwurst with sauerkraut, cheese and jalapeño. Really, whatever you try will become your favorite-they're that GOOD. Oh, don't... More

Hit up O'Betty's with my daughter after college orientation on a recommendation from a professor. So glad we went! It's a fun and funky spot that serves up a great hot dog and delicious, hand cut fries. Wide and affordable variety of hot dogs and decor that can't be beat - burlesque meets hot dog museum. One of a kind... More

Don't let the size of O'Betty's fool you, its very small. There is a lot packed into this small space. All of the hot dogs are named after stars of burlesque shows of the past, a unique touch on specializing hot dogs. The portion of french fries (also in different flavors like garlic) are large. The iced teas are flavored... More

This is one of those little eateries that you root for. The owner works hard to make sure everything exceeds your expectations. I'm not all that into hot dogs...(sorry) but I really enjoyed everything I ordered. I wasn't so sure when I drove by so I asked at our hotel and it received rave reviews from the locals. They especially... More

This little hot dog shop is a blast! The smallest building in Athens,OH, a college town with cobblestone streets, has the best dogs we ever had in this part of the country, and you have to try their hand cut fries..OMG!
