On one of the tryke rides, we stopped at O'Bettys since they were listed high on Tripadvisor restaurants in Athens. I now understand why they have such high ratings! Hubby had a chili dog and cajun fries, I had a Blaze hot dog with garlic...More

O'Betty's is both restaurant and hot dog "museum." We had read outstanding reviews of this quirky hole in the wall, very literally, in Athens, but our visit exceeded even our high expectations. You order at the counter, and then can sit in either of the...More

Cool eclectic location in this college town. Brought my family based on the reviews from Yelp and they loved. No one was not disappointed. Twice fried French fries were great and the chili cheese dogs went fast. My Mata Hari (homemade coleslaw and chili) was...More

This is a hole-in-the-wall off of Court Street, so you'll have to look for it -- but it's worth finding! The decorations are a combo of old pinup photos and hot-dog history, crammed into a small space. And the food is very, very good --...More

Decor is a mixture of - get this - burlesque house and hot dog related historical memorabilia - a crazy combination and yet it totally works! Tiny place, unbelievable hot dogs, brats, and fries. Had been driving too long and we needed a place to...More

O'Betty's hot dogs and fries are excellent. The place is small but they served a really good lunch. I could see why they're open late, because these dogs would be good for late night munchies!

I am a huge foodie so a hot dog joint wasn't on my list of places to try on our visit. So glad we decided to stay another day and check it out. Fantastic varieties of an American favorite made with quality, fresh ingredients. And...More
