What took me so long to try?

I have read the reviews but for some reason I kept putting off eating here. Well my wait ended tonight and it was very good experience. They are not just potatoes. I went for dinner and arrived just before the crowds. I chose the daily special, fried tenderloin with 2 sides for $6.99. The pork... read more

My boyfriend and I ate there on our way through Scottsboro. The food didn't seem very fresh. The service wasn't great. They brought his food out about 5 minutes before mine so that was weird. My hamburger steak was really good though. It wasn't dried out like it is when I order it at most places.

This is a very average place. It's good, but nothing spectacular. I would suggest cutting back on the serving sizes because most people can never finish.

I was astonished at the size of the portions--they were immense. I was very pleased with the brisket. My wife had one of their overly large potatoes and was equally pleased with the quality and presentation of the food. The service staff was friendly and proficient in their tasks. When we have occasion to pass through Scottsboro we will make... More

I have only tried one thing because it is so good. The bar b q tater is huge, and very good. Everything that I have seen others order looks good, but I can't make myself try anything else. I get one for lunch, eat about 40% and bring the rest home. My wife and I eat it for dinner one... More

This place has great sandwiches & the sweet potato waffle fries are awesome. I highly recommend this spot for your next lunch or dinner.

we arrived 30 minutes before closing time (which was 2 pm), and we started to sit down and were rather rudely told to sit somewhere else because they had just cleaned that side of the restaurant. The waitress "politely" took our order and brought our food, however they had already put up the ketchup and other condiments. She did not... More

The best thing offered here, in my opinion, is the Cuban. Large sandwich that they don't skimp on and it is the best Cuban I have ever eaten.

This was our first visit to 50 Taters Restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful. I tried the sirloin steak which was very tender. My wife had a cheeseburger which she liked. The food was hot and well prepared. We liked this restaurant because of the hometown atmosphere. Our server was Mary Jo who is also the manager.

50 Taters is a unique place that serves outstanding BBQ comfort food. Please note they are no longer located on Market Street. They have moved to a bigger location at: 29461 John T Reid Pkwy, Scottsboro, AL 35768.
