Betsey's On The Corner reminds me of a similar restaurant in my home town, Seymour IN: Betty's Townhouse. The food is simple but always excellent, very tasty, with large portions. Of note is their Chicken and Dumplings (Yeah, it tastes like Grandma used to make)...More

The food here was absolutely wonderful! I had a burger and sweet potato fries! Simply amazing! If you want a good burger or anything else, then try this place. The prices are very reasonable!

The staff is always friendly at Betsy's, and we regularly have dinner there every other week when we're downtown. The menu offers a nice range of comfort food, and there are daily specials (we often stop by on pot roast day). The atmosphere is casual.

Description
It's noisy; it's busy — but you know, that's what a diner is. It's a fun place. We are dedicated to providing the best food and service anywhere. Enjoy full table service from a menu of homemade soups and salads, hotdogs, burgers, specialty sandwiches hot off the grill, daily Blue Plates (just like Mama made), frosty shakes and ice cream treats at our old-fashioned soda fountain. Hearty Southern breakfasts are served on Saturday mornings.
