I found myself in Athens and had recently been disappointed by one of the places I love to go there. As a result, I was looking for somewhere else to eat, and O'Betty's seemed to be a good place to try. After all, I am...More

I was meeting up with some friends and they suggested O'Betty's. It didn't seem like my kind of place, but after hearing them rant and rave I thought I'd take their word on it. Boy am I glad I did! I had two gypsies and...More

I go to O'Betty"s pretty frequently. Their hot dogs are top notch. There is great variety of toppings and add ons, they have a wide variety of sauces and extras. I love the Ruby- basically a Ruben sandwich with diced tomatoes instead of corned beef....More

These are worth a try. The dogs are actually good quality and the fixin's are varied, many are unusual, and most are identifiable geographically (just ask and you will learn where the type of dog originates). The seating is limited and is couched in the...More

No doubt about it, there are great hot dogs at this place...a good variety from basic to ornate. Great prices, too. But the fries are only so so, and the service can be rather spotty. Wonderful place to go after a few drinks.

The best hot dogs I've had since I left the New York/New Jersey area 40 years ago. The hotdogs themselves are the very best and the toppings are stupendous and creative. And the hotdog museum and burlesque stars from the 1920's on the walls are...More
