We enjoyed our dinner here and quickly realized everyone else eating here was a local. The waitresses knew everyone by name and almost knew what they were going to order. Wished we had tried a milkshake. Next time!!

Betsy’s is a diner. It is not a drive-in or, by any means, a dive. The menu is outstanding and the service is top notch. It is a little noisy during lunch hour, but it works because nobody can overhear a nearby conversation. Do not...More

Description
It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
