look at this disgusting breakfast! this is my breakfast order from Betty's Soul Food. corned beef with 2 eggs and a side. First my eggs were supposed to be over medium, these eggs weren't even turned over never mind medium, sunny side up and plopped on a pool of grits, which apparently also over spilled into the nasty meat they...

Found this great neighborhood restaurant on New Year's Day when I was trying to find greens and black-eyed peas. Boy am I glad I did! I've been back since, of course. The girls will make you feel welcome, but the food will keep you coming back. I haven't had fried chicken like that since grandma's house when I was a... More

I can't believe why people give this place a good review. Truth be told, it's straight nasty and the food taste like gas. It smells like old wet wood in there. The bathrooms are in desperate need of cleaning. The dusty open air vents blow dust all over the place. I'm actually surprised the place is allowed to prepare and... More

Certainly a go to place. It had been years since I had been to Betty's and everything is how I remembered, right down to the decor. The food didn't fail. I had the catfish filet which was seasoned nicely. Also had the mac-n-cheese along with pigeon peas and rice. Both were great. I had a side of green beans which... More

Some of the best soul food I've ever had. Food is very consistent. You can never go wrong. My favorite cheat meal.

We saw this place on tv when Hillary was campaigning in Ft Lauderdale and decided to give it a try. The service was wonderful and the food very tasty. I had the fried chicken which came with potato salad and collard greens and mashed potatoes. The potato salad was fabulous. The chicken very good and the greens and mashed were... More

Betty's Soulfood Restaurant had pretty good food by the service left a bit to be desired. The waitress didn’t see, very interested in serving us (or another of the other customers) and she was very inflexible. So, do not attempt to deviate from what is written on the menu! While the restaurant isn't very attractive on the outside (nor the... More

Hubby took me to breakfast after my request for chicken and waffles. Got 2 small chicken wings and a soft waffle. I prefer waffles crispy on outside or it's just a pancake. So I was a little disappointed. I added grits and eggs which were cooked as ordered. His smothered pork chops were smothered in a brown gravy which tasted... More

There was no long wait time and the waiters was very courteous. If I lived in Miami I would never cook Sunday dinner again. That's how good Betty's food was. 😄😎
