We started out going to another place when we saw Betsy's and changed our minds. It was a great decision. The food was great, real comfort food for a good value in a relaxed atmosphere.. It's nice to go to a restaurant where the owner is involved and the staff enjoys their job. Great place and next time we're going... More

We were in Aiken visiting USC Aiken. At the recommendation of the USC Aiken staff we went to Betsy's On The Corner. The food was amazing. I had a cheeseburger and a hot dog with a side of onion rings and french fries. Make sure you leave room for dessert.

Driving from ATL to Myrtle Beach we were near Aiken, SC at lunch time and used TA to find a good local non chain place for lunch. We scored big time with Betsy's. I had the South Boundary burger with fresh hand cut perfected cooked fries while my wife enjoyed the Corner burger with hand cut lightly batter onion rings.... More

This is a real interesting compact restaurant on a corner in Aiken, SC that has heavy owner involvement. She took over this place several years ago and has really made it hum. It features an old time soda bar with tables inside and some out on the sidewalk. The menu is very good. The place always seems busy which is... More

I found this little place because it was right near my hotel. I ordered hotdogs and onion rings and potato salad. I could have anything but that was what I was in the mood for. I sat at the counter while waiting for my to go order. I decided I would take it back to my room instead of taking... More

Like the old decor. We split a dinner and dessert. We split roast, potatoes, broccoli casserole, cream corn, Italian cream cake to top it off. We weren't to hungry, so it was perfect portions. Some reviews said it was loud in there, we didn't feel that way. We were able to carry on conversations at normal "volume". Planning a trip... More

I have been to Betsy's on the Corner 4 times so far and I've shared dishes with my family and friends. Everything on the menu that I have tried is delicious. The portions are a good size and the food is cooked perfectly. The atmosphere seems a bit crowded because it's a big open room but it fits the character... More

Reminds me of the counter at corner drugstore when I was much younger. Mostly fried type foods. Great Hamburger. Wife enjoyed the Fried Chicken Special. Helpful waitresses. Food arrived promptly even though place was packed. They also do hand dipped ice cream treats. Easy in and Out. Good spot for kids. Closes at 5:00

Betsy's was a very cute, fun place to eat while my family was in town. I had the Ultimate club and it was VERY filling, I could only eat half of the sandwich. The coleslaw was a delicious side. My husband and father both had the Easy Street burgers and enjoyed them very much. For dessert we shared the Ice... More
