This place is one of a kind!! I can till you that the veggie dawg is one of the better once I’ve had to this day. Nice bread and toppings on your dawg - that are all named after burlesque dancers. How neat is that?!...More

Great hot dogs. They have that little snap with each bite which to me is a sign of a superior dog. They have an amazing selection of toppings. Along with good french fries.

If you are looking for an out-of-the-ordinary life experience, stop by O'Betty's in Athens. Great hot dogs, in all configurations, and great people (and a quirky, vaudeville theme). It's a tiny place, but has a big heart.
