A local Downtown Aiken restaurant was featured on a national television news station.


Betsy’s on the Corner was part of a recent Fox News story on the growing trend of old-fashioned diners. The story also looked at restaurants in Kentucky and Georgia.


Owner Betsy Simon was interviewed for the story and told Fox News reporters that her restaurant was inspired by “Aiken’s small-town feel.”


“It was such an honor and it was quite a surprise,” Simon said on Friday. “I’m still not sure how they heard about us. It’s phenomenal.”


Betsy’s, located at 159 Laurens St. N.W., serves burgers, hot dogs, fries, soups, salads, sandwiches, milkshakes, sundaes, malts and more.
