Just a random gas stop on a very long road trip, around lunchtime, and our dining options in Greenville included about every fast food chain, and this little place, Bates Smoked Turkey.

My husband and I went there for lunch the other day and ordered their Hickory Smoked Turkey Sandwiches (one regular size and another off the kid's menu) + 2 soda drinks and a slice of a Key Lime Pie. The total price for the meal was a little over $19. When asked if we wanted mayo and lettuce on our... More

Second visit just as good as the first. This legendary establishment earns all the awards. Excellent meal, very responsible prices, friendly staff. Can't to order a turkey this Thanksgiving.

We visit Bates House of Turkey 4 - 6 times a year. In fact we plan our trips up and down Alabama Interstate 65 so we arrive in Greenville when it's time to eat! We've always enjoyed the turkey and dressing meals! Highly recommended!

Only 1 car in the parking lot Friday afternoon day after Thanksgiving should have been the sign. This place is SO BAD I don't know where to begin and if I do, where I will stop! This is not a typical ORDER FROM THE TABLE restaurant. I won't even go into the filth. Girl at the counter expressed attitude of... More

Stopped here on the way to the Gulf Coast. I purchased the turkey dinner plate with green beans and potato salad as my sides. The only thing lacking was the potato salad. It was edible but not great like the rest of the meal, Everyone else at the table enjoyed their meal as well.

Simply Delicious! We always make a stop here to get some smoked turkey...whether it's meal time or to have it later, we've always been glad we made the stop!!! And we also stock up on the Turkey Jerky...a great snack!

whenever traveling on I-65 this place is a must stop. The food is spot on and we always get food to go to make meals later on. If passing through its a must stop!

While traveling long distance, we always try to seek local spots to stop and eat rather than the regular fast-food joints. I found this one in an internet search as we were getting near to Greenville, and we were not disappointed! You order at a counter, but a very different menu than in any regular restaurant, and fresh baked goods... More
