Good Home Cooking

Didn't know what to expect here but decided to give it a try and was pleased with the food and service. The setup is a hot bar that you will need to understand how it works vhen the waitress explains. Felt pretty good when we saw several military from Ft.

Betty's OK Country Cooking is now smoke-free!!!!! I had heard of the change but was slow about going back. It was great -- ate the buffet --it is country cooking, just remember there are no seconds. Had a piece of "dirty" pie that was outstanding.

My wife loved the vegetables and I thought they were good. The service was very attentive and the price was reasonable. I just couldn't get over the smoking!

I had to go to Columbia, KY for my daughters marching band competition. We had an hour or so to kill before they took the field, and were hungry, the options for eating in a town as small as Columbia are very limited, however, when we passed by Betty's OK Country Cooking, we decided it looked like our kind of...

Got kidnapped by my hubby. This is be far breakfast you can get out side your own home. Service was excellent, food is out standing. Will come here more often. Well worth our 20 min drive.

Stopped by on a Friday at 5:00. It was jammed packed! The food was decent but the cashier wasn't very friendly . The place needs a waiting area because people waiting to be seated stand in front of the exit blocking it! Also it's very smoky!

Stopped and thought we would give this place a try, the waitress explained how the hot bar not a buffet works, you are allowed 1 meat, that day was a choice of a piece of meatloaf, 2 pcs of chicken and she specified which two pieces you could have, 3 pieces of catfish, or a large portion of turkey, you...

This is not a buffet. It is a like a café. You may only select one meat item and you are told what size portion you may get, ie 2 pieces of chicken, one small portion of meat loaf, or 3 small pieces of catfish. You get only one trip to get food. No seconds allowed. The place is dark.... More

They forgot my gravy on my mashed potatoes. The food was not to bad but priced ok. But damn, it's 2015 accept credit or debit cards. The place is small and not big enough to handle special days of the year. Breakfast anytime, that's a bonus. If they don't raise the price, I will be back.....with cash.
