Great service on a rainy day= delicious tuna melt- and chicken dumpling soup on a cold day- with scrumptious and generous portion of Red Velvet cake for a shared dessert - perfect

Best onion rings I've ever had. Fries and rings made in house. Sandwich and soup were both good. Service was fast but not overly friendly, even though I think she was trying.

Betsy's on the corner is the best sandwich shop in Aiken. Eat inside or outside weather permitting the service is quick and food top notch. Daily specials are hearty and delicous

Nothing spectacular, but nothing inferior in my several visits. Exceedingly friendly service from a very attentive staff. Daily specials with chicken my favorite. Breakfast on Saturdays especially good. Visit once and you will likely return.

Our second visit to Betsy's with friends from Aiken was disappointing. It was Saturday when breakfast is served. It wasn't very busy inside but we waited a long time for the food to arrive. When it did , we were missing an order of toast...More

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.
