I've passed this place several times and always noticed the crowd so I decided to stop and try it. The menu was good for a diner with a lot of variety, I choose the corner grilled cheese. The sandwhich was great. I'm big on grilled...More

I was in Aiken for one day and used Trip Advisor to find a local place for lunch. I found “Betsy’s On The Corner” on the corner in town. I sat at the counter and was waited on immediately. I had read the daily specials...More

You only need to walk by Betsy's to tell it's good. On weekends, the line is out the door for lunch, and for good reason- the food is delicious. Breakfast is good, but on Saturdays only. Service is sometimes slow- once, I think the servers...More

Great sandwiches, hamburgers, blue plate special each day, lots of ice cream flavors, several cake selections. There were 10 of us and we had 8 different sandwiches. Everyone like what they ordered. Some of the best onion rings I've ever had.

Unless you're into eating an early lunch, at noon, this place is crazy busy. Rather cramped in the limited space. I like the diner atmosphere. The fare was average, the prices were average. The service was excellent. I might try somewhere else when in Aiken...More

We visited on Friday for early dinner. Food was good and our service was great. Loved the “diner” atmosphere. We rarely order desserts but as it was holiday season decided to go for it. Kids loved milk shakes and coconut cake was delicious. Definitely recommend.

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.
