We ate at Don's last week and it cost us 60.00 to eat for family of 4 and that with 2 kids off the menu. Last night all 4 of us ate for 32.00 and that was with tax. We will be back.
You must be stupid if u paid $60 at dons for your family two filet dinners is only $28 for two and that's highest price on menu so I guess u making this up cuz I know two kids meals were not $32 dumbass

Went to the new place and its good. I hope they change up what they offer on the buffet. I think they have to many waitress's. a lot stood around. At Don's and Moni's they're always on the go. They earned their tip. I like my waitress to cut up with me too. Went to Don's on Valentine's day and those girls were working hard and we all appreciated the effort! I left a $10 tip. Moni's breakfast is the best!

Ate at Betty's for lunch and it was over $10.00 per person and there wasn't much to pick from on the buffet, not worth $10 a person. Myself and my coworkers will not be back.. The building was nice, that's the only god thing I could say about it.

Don't know how it could be over $10 when they only charge $9.75 for meal, dessert, drink and tax?? You better go to the $5 Subway, there you might get out for under $10. Ever heard of packin a little lunch!

We have been to Betty's. The location and parking is top notch. Service is above and beyond. The price is comparable to other restaurants in town for my family. The building is great. Everything is nice and clean. The vegetables are very good--well seasoned and not just dumped out of a can.

The drawbacks to me are as follows:

I don't like the set up. Desserts should not be at the front of the line and the salad bar should be separate, as well. The flow is all wrong. You shouldn't have to stand in line for your meal while others are getting their desserts. While the veggies were great, the meats were not. The chicken strips had a good taste, but there were never enough of them and no sauces readily available for dipping. The fried chicken and the fish tasted the same. It can't be cooked in the same grease. The steak was tough, even though mine was cooked medium rare and shouldn't have been. The quality of the meats is going to have to improve.

There are pros and cons to every venture and I hope Carlos keeps learning and moving forward with this one. Trial and error is the only way to be successful and I believe he's on the right track!!

You would think that you would get real catfish not whitefish for the prices they charge higher prices does not mean better food

If you want catfish, and the only kind is American grown, then go to a place that specializes in it. Not every one know how to cook top rated catfish. Don's does a great job. There are better places, but consistently his is good and the price is fair.

Meh, went there for lunch one Sunday and the atmosphere was bland with boring gospel music and mediocre food. Would rather eat at Don's personally.

Of course super nice building and clean since its been all redone. I am not a fan of the food but that's just me. Just taste kind of bland. But price is great and so much better than Dons. Betty's won't be beat here overall. Hope they make it

They will make it. And yes they will make it. They will be covered up by Memorial Day and it will stay budy all summer, especially if they go to American raised catfish.
