Good place for lunch, right in downtown Aiken, walking distance to all shops. A bit noisy with the metal ceiling, but food is well worth it.

I love Betsy's burgers and hand battered onion rings. They also have great desserts and ice cream. They have great home cooking with daily specials like pot roast, fried chicken. etc. Southern hospitality at it's best!

Wanted a light lunch without fast food. Tried Betsy’s. Cute atmosphere we had their grilled cheese with bacon and apples. Combined with their veggie soup and coconut cake it turned into a special lunch. Recommended but crowded and noisy during the lunch rush.

Very popular for lunch--get there early. Very good food with a great staff. We eat there for lunch at least once per week.

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.
