Location Description:

Few places offer a taste of black Southern cuisine as complete and inexpensive as this place, tucked between Sistrunk Boulevard and 22nd Road. Lunchtime brings local businesspeople together while Matlock reruns mime on two muted televisions and gospel classics rotate on the jukebox. The dining area is kept cool, and regardless of where you sit, you can't miss posters of Obama everywhere. Menus aren't reliable as far as specials go, so ask your server what the chef has going. The menu boasts pig tails, catfish, fried chicken, and of course chitterlings. Try the oxtail with collard greens, pillow-soft cornbread, and candied yams (the last of which should be offered as a dessert). Betty's also caters any size gathering and will customize the order according to your specifications. Open for breakfast and dinner too.
