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!

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.

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
