My wife and I went to Betty's this morning and had a great breakfast. We both ordered a coffee, I ordered the Hometown Breakfast which included two eggs, choice of meat, potatoes and toast, and my wife ordered two eggs and toast. Our server Brenda was very friendly and helpful. If you are looking for delicious food at a reasonable... More

A great little find in the middle of nowhere. Open for breakfast, lunch and brunch. Just good old fashion restaurant where everyone knows each other. Just good

Betty's was just what we expected. Roast beef, gravy and fries were good. The coleslaw was very good. My vegetarian sub was a pleasant surprise. Lots of grilled mushrooms, cheese tomato and iceberg lettuce on a white roll. The half size portion made for a filling lunch. Coffee was good. The diner is clean, somewhat dated in appearance but typical... More

Tasty food, friendly people, service rather slow. It took our food an extended period of time after ordering to come out (half hour, 40 minutes?). Blueberry pancakes were good, husbands western omelet looked rather meager. Local charming atmosphere though. Got busy while we were there and that may have been why it was slow service, but it's annoying when people... More

No frills, no problem. We were looking for a quick, in-n-out lunch spot and found just that at Betty's. Apparently well known for their breakfasts, lunch was pretty good too. Just the basics for us...fish sandwich and hamburger. Both were tasty enough and we didn't spend alot of time or money. The model train going around the top of the... More

As many have said, service can be slow, particularly on Sunday mornings on the two occasions we visited. Try to get there and ordered before 10. We sat outside both times and avoided the noise inside. We both particularly liked the sausages which were locally sourced and extremely good. I will look forward to returning.

Little diner - don't let the first impression fool you. Food and service was incredible. We both got the country skillet. Portions were huge, we couldn't eat it all. Great food and very inexpensive. Food was fresh and home cooked.

After running a restaurant for 30 years I am probably more particular than most - Betty's is the only game in town for this type of atmosphere - I found very slow service (a simple take out order took a long time - (they are very under staffed) The food was very average I am sure the "locals" keep it...

Stayed in this nice town and enjoyed eating at some nice places. We went to Betty's for breakfasts. You have to be patient but it's worth it

Classic diner style food with large portions and value for your dollars. Try the eggs, potatoes, and gravy in a bowl. It is a classic but you will need to walk the length of to town a couple times to work it off!
