I grew up in Mississippi, and lived in Louisiana. This little meat and 3 diner reminds me of those fabulous, old, been there forever, everyone knows about, hole-in-the-wall, wonderdul deliciousness. I had the vegetable plate with fried green tomatoes, greens, Mac & cheese, and field peas. Field peas are one of my fave foods, and you hardly ever find them... More

Visited Betty Mae's for the first time on February 7, 2017.I ordered the smothered pork chops, with mashed potatoes and gravy and mac and cheese 🧀. I love the home style setting and the relaxed atmosphere. This place reminded me of my grandmother house!!! Definitely will be going back there!!!

Betty Mae's is a pretty awesome place if you want some soul food cooked to a family recipe. Bring your insulin and blood pressure pills, because this food has goodness added with a generous hand. Personal, friendly service. Open sporadically, but worth all of $9-$12 you might spend on lunch here. Highly recommended.

Ate there last Wednesday and had some of the best fried chicken I have ever had. Both my wife and I loved the sides as well. We both got turnip greens which were really good. My wife got peach cobbler and said that it was not overspiced like many places insist on doing. She absolutely loved it! Its only a... More

I would have never tried this place if it wasn't for my daughter who discovered it about a month ago. It's a bit hidden off oak wood avenue on grace street. She lived in New Orleans and this place reminded her of a place we love there. It's down home cooking. I had the pot roast which is the best... More

I was raised not eating pork, which is rare in the south. Its refreshing to find a southern restaurant which cooks WITHOUT pork. Many don't believe food can be seasoned without it, but turkey (and varying herbs) can be just as tasty. I appreciate Betty Mae's for providing that option $10.90 (tax included) = 1meat, 2 veggies, bread, dessert, and... More

What amazing food! The service was great and the staff was super friendly. Will we be back? Most certainly. Kudos to Betty Maes … keep doing what you’re doing because... More

We visited her other location just off Jordan Lane NW. Real people cooking real food like Grandma used to when you were a kid. Generous country portion entrees with delicious side dishes and lemonade, sweet tea or Koolaid drinks. Chicken, fish or beef offerings all reasonably priced. Only con about food was someone a little heavy on the salt. Don't... More

I was there on Wednesday and tried their neck bone. It tasted great! The meat was super tender. My meal came with 2 sides, corn bread, desert and drink (unlimited refills). Staff is super friendly. Where can you find such great home cooking...and all for $8! This restaurant is located near residential area and the exterior can be deceiving. They... More

Don't let the outside fool you. The ladies there are super nice and welcome you with a smile. The food here is banging!! This is real soulfood!! The collard greens were cooked to perfection and the neckbones were falling off the bone delicious! The menu changes daily. If you are ever in Huntsville and want some good home cooked food... More
