My hubby and I were in the mood for good ole southern style fried chicken so I checked Trip Advisor and Yelp and found Betty's. As my Mama in N Carolina would say, "that is some mighty fine good cookin'!" Between my husband and I, we had fried chicken, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes with gravy and the best dang... More

Found this great neighborhood restaurant on New Year's Day when I was trying to find greens and black-eyed peas. Boy am I glad I did! I've been back since, of course. The girls will make you feel welcome, but the food will keep you coming back. I haven't had fried chicken like that since grandma's house when I was a... More

I can't believe why people give this place a good review. Truth be told, it's straight nasty and the food taste like gas. It smells like old wet wood in there. The bathrooms are in desperate need of cleaning. The dusty open air vents blow dust all over the place. I'm actually surprised the place is allowed to prepare and... More

Certainly a go to place. It had been years since I had been to Betty's and everything is how I remembered, right down to the decor. The food didn't fail. I had the catfish filet which was seasoned nicely. Also had the mac-n-cheese along with pigeon peas and rice. Both were great. I had a side of green beans which... More

Some of the best soul food I've ever had. Food is very consistent. You can never go wrong. My favorite cheat meal.

Betty's Soulfood Restaurant had pretty good food by the service left a bit to be desired. The waitress didn’t see, very interested in serving us (or another of the other customers) and she was very inflexible. So, do not attempt to deviate from what is written on the menu! While the restaurant isn't very attractive on the outside (nor the... More
