If you want authentic southern cooking, this is a must stop when you're in Huntsville. Nothing fancy but really tasty. We each had a daily special, fried chicken. With two sides, cornbread, dessert and beverage all for $8.00. You won't be disappointed.

Betty Mae's is a pretty awesome place if you want some soul food cooked to a family recipe. Bring your insulin and blood pressure pills, because this food has goodness added with a generous hand. Personal, friendly service. Open sporadically, but worth all of $9-$12...More
