Ranging from $6-$16, the menu has a slight ‘N’awlins’ flare with its Po’Boy Sandwich, Gumbo, Cajun herbs, and a slight emphasis on fried delights. I feel comfortable in saying this is just one element that sets Betty’s apart from normal ‘bar food’ menus. For $10 you can explore a board of cheese or charcuteries (or both for $15) pairing options. If you have room for dessert, Betty has some treats in store for you (http://www.oneeyedbettys.com/
For dinner, starters include your choice of mollusks, prepared any number of ways with a variety of embellishments. No worries, the staple plate of wings is also available among other starters, not to forget the Bacon With A Side of Bacon favorite (braised pork belly, apple-wood smoked, fried poached egg).
Betty’s spin on the traditional soups, salads, ‘Handwiches’, entrees and sides will please any palate and you’ll wish their hand-cut frites were in never-ending supply.If you can’t make it for evening debauchery, One-Eyed Betty’s offers a lunch and breakfast menu. Lunch is a lighter menu, and breakfast a Betty’s-style offering of the traditional sweet and savory options including homemade doughnuts and the ‘Build Your Own Darn Omelet’. Bottomless mimosas for $12 – or just go ahead and indulge in that beer menu of theirs.
One-Eyed Betty’s Beer Bar & Kitchen opens at 4pm on weekdays and it would seem that if you don’t get there soon after, you may have to try and enjoy your evening standing. There are pinball machines and a jukebox (four tunes for one buck!) to bide your wait, but it’s hard to focus on the craft beer selection and a playlist at the same time - the success of One-Eyed Betty’s is a metro-Detroit win, but make sure you get there in time to enjoy it!
One Eyed Betty’s is located at 175 West Troy Street, just south of 9-Mile Road off Woodward Avenue and open all week. Hours: Mon – Fri 4pm – 2am; Sat –Sun 9am – 2am.
