We go to Betty's often for breakfast, but stopped for lunch the other day. I had the hot roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy. It was amazing!! Complete with REAL mashed potatoes! So good, and I can't wait to have it again!

Everytime I go thru Columbia 20 times a year I stop at one of my favorite restaurants--Bettys. Whoever wrote expensive -- all you can eat of the best downhome cooking anywhere for 7.99$-- outstanding value.Extremely pleasant staff-- plenty of room . Pork chops,fried catfish,meatloaf, stuffed peppers and many other meats with great vegetables. The pies are to die for.

If your looking for a great meal breakfast, lunch or dinner, this is the place to go. Their prices are reasonable and the food is delicious. There's a 'buffet' for lunch/dinner (only 1 trip for meat serving) but the vegetables are all you want. The waitresses are friendly with an unbeatable southern hospitality. They are closed on Sundays.

I have been to Betty's several times. It's ok, but nothing great. A little expensive for the quality of food. You can order off the menu or do the one trip "buffet." The menu has about anything you would want. Burgers are usually a solid choice. Grilled chicken salads are the best option. If you choose the buffet you only... More

Had the sweetest server (LaTonya) - very helpful. Trust her recommendations. I trusted her so much I might make her Executor of my Last Will. We had breakfast, and everything was good and fresh, but here are the highlights: Tenderloin (pork) breakfast. I had mine two ways - fried country style and grilled - both delicious, moist and succulent. Fried... More

Food that you may actually sink your teeth into and enjoy. Decent variety with the buffet. Wonderful, friendly, and thoughtful wait staff. It is a family friendly atmosphere, heavy on the locals. The food was fresh, prepared well and tasty. Yum!

Betty's is great home cooking but the menu offers a variety that should make anyone happy. I love the grilled chicken salad. Large salad with plenty of goodies. The hot bar is always a great option. Something important to me: the tea is always, I mean always, fresh. Desserts, oh dear. And the staff is incredibly friendly. You won't find... More

This is not a buffet. While I had previously tried this place, I was told by a local to try it again. I should not have listened. The place is not clean and very outdated The service is non-existent. You must stand and ask for a refill on your drink. The food is disappointing and the manager reminds me of... More
