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 The place is not clean and very outdated The service is non-existent.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

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!

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. Campbell, Ky already seated and eating.The food is good basic... More

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...
