Fun, necessary

Great to have a place to pick up water or snacks - even beer and wine. If you have a rental with grills, have a full grocery so grab some steaks. Good, huge cookies in the bakery.

We stopped in several times and enjoyed looking at all the choices. The prices were a little high, but that is to be expected when it is the only grocery store within downtown Helen. They also have a gift shop and liquor store attached. The bakery items looked great and the homemade huge cookies were wonderful!!!

We love Betty's Country Store. The coffee is only 50 cents a cup. The selection of classic hard to find soft drinks and snacks is extensive.

A nice grocery store with a yummy sandwich counter! When we are in Helen, this is where we eat lunch. You can have your sandwich made exactly as you'd like it and wash it all down with an ice-cold Coke (in a glass bottle!!). Be sure to check out the bee hive in the store. Also - the boiled peanuts...

Betty's is an interesting place to visit and your only option in the town of helen for food but very over priced and I don't think they spend alot of time switching out old food. I bought a role of Jimmy Dean sausage and when I cut it open the next morning the stink was awful. I did buy two... More

Betty's truly is a general store. If your kids have never been to a fully operational general store, this one is a great one to visit. They have everything you could possible need...... you are just going to pay considerably more than you do at your local grocery.

I'm a local so I don't usually write reviews but I felt the need to share. I have been to Betty's a lot of times and every time I go it exceeds my expectations, the product quality it high and their service even better. Don't bother with ingles or another chain grocery store Betty's it the place to go

They have a really nice variety of foods southern and international. They also have prepared and baked foods. It is like an old General Store. Pretty nice selection of beers and wines and other beverages. Definitely worth a visit. There is pretty much something for everyone.

I love the big washtubs of marbles, both large and small and this brings back memories of years ago. The food sold there has always been fresh and good. Their hand cut hoop cheese is great and sharp. They have excellent meat and pastries and breads. It is a fun trip to the store.
