My and I are staying in Guntersville so we wanted to visit the surrounding cities. A nice gentleman we met at the RV park told us to try 50 Taters. I'm so glad we did! We ordered the Cuban sandwich and a large pork loaded potato to share. The sandwich was delicious and full of meat. Our potato was also... More

Ribs/steak combo was awesome. Baked potato was huge and had the perfect amount of toppings. Service was excellent. Asst. Manager visited tables to be sure everything was ok. My friend ordered a T-bone and I had a small steak with the ribs. The waitress asked us to cut into the steaks to make sure they were cooked to our liking.... 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

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
