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

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.

They have moved to a bigger location at: 29461 John T Reid Pkwy, Scottsboro, AL 35768. If you are looking for a place that provides great customer service and has large portions of mouthwatering BBQ at a very... More

Being away at college, this is the one place I always HAVE to go to when I come home to visit. They have the best BBQ around and their pork taters are amazing! They're even better the next day. Definitely try the corn nuggets, too, but they don't reheat very well so there's a heads up. Highly recommended.

I had a gigantic BBQ Sandwich and it was excellent. My wife had Chicken Fried Chicken and sides and could not eat it all although it was great. Our guest had BB Nachos and was very pleased. We've ate there several times and the service, atmosphere and food are all excellent.

I travel extensively and it is rare to find such a gem in a small town. The portions are very generous and for the price I was surprised. The sweet potato fries were the best I have had. They were served with an unexpected caramel condiment that was a great choice--highly recommend trying those. I had the shaved turkey potato... More

Trying to find a place to eat for a family of four and could not have found a better one especially for the price and quality of the food. If in Scottsboro again will definitely stop by.

We met some friends at this restaurant while in town. We had a large party of 9 and they were easily able to accommodate us. The kids meals were priced well and had good variety. The steak was excellent and the BBQ was tasty as well. The staff was amazing and friendly. The best part of this restaurant was the... More

Wow, I am impressed. It is not often you go in a place and look at the menu and want to try everything on it. I had the stuffed pork potato and it was excellent. My husband had the brisket sandwich and friends had the nana cristo and bama cheesesteak.everyone thought they were terrific. We will all be going back... More
