Honestly, I gave this place as many chances as I could. I just don't get it. The food is mediocre , service mediocre, atmosphere is the closest thing to being less than mediocre but even that comes off as slightly cartoony. Ice cream is good, but I truly do not understand why people continue to patronize this place. The prices... More

Had a burger and a 1/2 salad (which was huge) and they made a great NY style Egg Cream which is unheard of in most of the south. Staff was very busy but friendly as time allowed. Also a great place just to go to the counter for ice cream. Step back in time and enjoy! Also, $24 dollars for... More

Of course the locals won't be able to eat there anymore once word gets out. Good, fresh food. Very nice employees. The only thing wrong with Betsy's is that most days there's a wait for a table!

We visited for lunch for the first time today, and were quite pleased with the variety of items on the menu. The chicken salad was GREAT! The burger selection made it hard to decide, but the one we settled on with the egg on it was AMAZING! Onion rings are a must have!!! I definitely recommend this place to anyone... More

I had Betsy's atomic burger with jalapenos. I was juicy, flavorful and spicy. I had ice cream for desert that was rich and creamy. A very enjoyable meal.

relatively new with home-cooked specials every day it has become an overnight success due to the food and the wonderful staff. they always have coffee ice cream (yeah!) and their hand cut homemade french fries are the best in the south. also has an old-time ice cream counter.

We took our grand son there for lunch. He is an expert when it comes to hamburgers. He always said 5 Guys were the best but now he wants us to drive past five guys to go to Betsy's. And be sure to have a milkshake. If you are as old as we are it will be a great trip... More

Betsy's is a local diner where the food is so good you have to get there early (before noon) to get a seat right away or have late lunch (after 1:30.) From their fried fish to their salads and burgers, every meal my spouse and I have had has been enjoyable.

This is a good little hometown diner. They've got sandwiches, burgers, daily blue plate specials and all kinds of ice cream delights. The waitresses are friendly and the place is like a typical diner in the 50's or 60's. Food was good, I had a hamburger and it was really good. The fries aren't included, but can be added for...
