Years ago this was one of our favorite places to eat. We always had great service and the food was amazing. The ribeye used to melt in your mouth. Unfortunately we started having bad experiencea and stopped going for two years. Saturday we decided to...More

Most of the food on the menu involves a deep fryer, but I'm okay with that. They could use an update on their interior decor, and don't go around swabbin for bacteria. It is what it is. Good fried food, fast paced waitresses, beer, and...More

You can certainly expect friendly service and a down-home feel at Betty's. The brownie for dessert was amazing. I think this is a fair rating for Betty's. The steak seem to be have a fair quality but was overcooked and over-salted. You may ask for...More

They have a two for special for dinner on the weekends. You get really good food at a good price. The other days it is still a good value for the food you get.
