This use to be one of the best places in New. Orleans to eat. And top of the line.
But, with the sad and untimely death of the founder
Miss. Betsy. It has really gone down hill. It is like they do not care any more.
The food has really gone down hill the most.
Anything that should be hot comes out stone cold and what should be cold is room temp.
Catfish is nothing more then breading. Meat cut thin. side dishes very small with little taste.
Desserts without taste.
Tea and coffee weak.
Wait staff have to be asked to get up from tables with friends they are chatting with to wait on you.
Paid about $17.00 for two but all we really got was stale bread and weak ice tea.
Gave it another try for Breakfast and it was not any better.
I am told that IF you know them you get better food and service. That is NOT any way to run a restaurant.
Miss Betsy would be rolling in her grave if she saw what her dream has become.
Nobody could of cared as much as Miss Betsy cared about this place. It was reported that even on her "death bed" she told them to leave and get to work.
They promised the city to keep it alive. So her dream would live on. But, they seem not to really care to even try to come as close to a knock out, affordable place as Miss Betsy did.
Her dream died with her. And we miss them both ;(

Eggs are rarely cooked right, the grits are sometimes cold. Wheat toast takes 10 minutes longer than white. Bacon is never as crispy as I like it. The waitresses are loudmouthed and scream at each other in your ear. Sometime I have to get up and get my own damn$d coffee, and I go there at least 3-4 times per week!! Love those ladies!

Betsy's is a great breakfast spot for Mid-City denizens looking for the close-knit camaraderie of the romanticized golden age of neighborhood diners. Betsy's isn't a diner, but a stream of jocular regulars makes for an appealing, comforting and inviting breakfast experience. The breakfast fare is filling and addictive, the coffee's hot and refilled often. Lunch items are also solid, especially the top-notch hamburger steak smothered in onions and brown gravy. There are few better neighborhood haunts.
