Good Country Cooking

This place isn't fancy but they offer good country cooking at an exceptionally reasonable price and the service is very friendly, too. The pies are absolutely delicious!

We are low carb eaters. Not the place--true country food. The pork we ate was outstanding the omelettes were great. Service was loud and slow. The cook was not happy so we had to wait a really long time for our meal. I don't think we would go back

We went there Monday evening a little after 7:00PM, food was low on the buffet, and no longer hot. By 7:45 a couple of items were no longer there. Was not a meal worth the cost.

The wait staff was rude and the food mediocre. To begin, I had questions regarding the "buffet" and explained I am from out of town and do not know how it works. She stated its 1 piece of meat (or 3 small filets if choosing catfish) and all the veggies you want. The entire reason I stopped here was because... More

What a great hometown cookin' place. Coming from California I was not really sure what to expect. If you are looking for that small town, hometown feeling and cooking, this is the place to go. We met Betty on our way out and I was with my son who goes to college in the town. Betty recognized him as one... More

I have eaten several times at Bettys OK Country Cooking since moving to the Columbia / Greensburg area a month or so ago. Breakfast is good and all day if you want. The service is great. Lunch and dinner have a good variety on the hot bar - not a buffet; just a one pass that you plate yourself. Ordering... More

The buffet was dried out or some veggies too greasy. The rolls were so hard I could not cut mine with my butter knife they gave me to cut the hard tenderloin. The waitress said she would get me fresh rolls and a real knife but after 45 min. No one came back to us and we also set thru... More

We were there for dinner on a Thursday night. Great food. This is Mom & Pop at it's best. You can pick one meat and all of the vegetables you want from the Buffet. Very tasty..not over cooked or over seasoned. My husband had the Catfish and I had the Breaded Pork Tenderloin. Both were wonderful. Friendly people, great food,... More

Betty's offered very good food served by pleasant people. Yes, they do allow smoking. My wife is very sensitive to smoke but by sitting in the non-smoking room she was not bothered at all. The buffet was really good. It is true that you only get one pass at the buffet but that was plenty. At $7.99 we thought it... More

Food is ok, the prices are a little high thought . Your only allowed one visit to the buffet and only one meat unless catfish . Worse part is you come out smelling like you've been in a smoky bar! It's 2014 GO NONE SMOKING!
