If you are looking for an out-of-the-ordinary life experience, stop by O'Betty's in Athens. Great hot dogs, in all configurations, and great people (and a quirky, vaudeville theme). It's a tiny place, but has a big heart.

This place is off the main drag kind of hidden. Tried a assortment from the menu and was very pleased. Kind of pricey for hot dogs but was worth it.

As an OU grad, I have fond memories of stumbling up to the after hours window for a Tempest and delicious basket of fries. Life may have changed things a bit - but O'Betty's is still as amazing as it was while I lived here....More

This hot dog/sausage bar is small. The food was good although the loaded fries were soggy. It’s also not very clean. But for a quick bite with fun decorations, you can’t go wrong.
