If you are hit with a late night hunger O’Betty’s is the place for you. If you like dogs with a “snap” you will love this fare. I have had better fries but these are close to the top.

Been coming here for years alone and with friends. Never had a bad experience here!! Staff is always great! My only complaint would be they aren’t open on Sunday and they no longer have ibc root beer.

THE BEST LATE NIGHT FOOD IN ATHENS! Fries, yes. Dogs, yes. Everything is amazing. I’ve had many of the options and have never been disappointed!

The décor and ambiance alone are worth the visit, but their hotdogs are the best, meaty with great combination choices. The fresh hand-cut fries are superb. You can't beat the "Dixie," for a great tasting sauce, onions and cheese.

Tiny little place (the latest in a series of "experimental" food joints in this location). Fantastic selection of hot dogs. Yum!

This place is one of a kind!! I can till you that the veggie dawg is one of the better once I’ve had to this day. Nice bread and toppings on your dawg - that are all named after burlesque dancers. How neat is that?!...More

Great hot dogs. They have that little snap with each bite which to me is a sign of a superior dog. They have an amazing selection of toppings. Along with good french fries.

They have great hot dogs! so many choices and toppings and specials every day. If that does not entice you, FRENCH FRIES! They are the best fresh cut fries in town.

I love hot dogs. Well, that is I used to love hot dogs. Growing up in New York City, having a Nathan's or Hebrew National hot dog was a treat! They had a natural casing that crackled and crunched when you not into them and...More
