“Local & Delicious! ”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I always recommend 50 Taters to folks looking for something yummy and not fast food. The atmosphere is friendly and nostalgic and the waitresses are always very warm and inviting. We have NEVER encountered bad service here! And take my word for it, service is a huge deal to me. Really awesome bbq too. I always have trouble choosing between the stuffed tater and the Cuban which is probably the best sandwich I have ever tasted. All in all, if you are visiting Scottsboro and want to eat where the locals eat this is the place!

Great food, casual atmosphere! They give large portions and the food won't disappoint! I had the Roast Beef sandwich and bbq nachos.

“Yummy”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We have been there a few times since they "re-launched". We haven't figured out why they closed for so long b/c nothing seems to have changed. Personally we think they needed some time with their other location. Since the re-opening, they have a BBQ sandwich special that is great! The service is always attentive. We definitely recommend this location! Now if we could just get them to stop showing that ridiculous commercial .........

“TERRIBLE! HORRIBLE! AVOID!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

Went here for lunch today and this place is ridiculous! The food is great but there is ABSOLUTELY NO ORDER! First off, you walk in and have to look around a room for somewhere to sit. The tables that are available are covered in other people's plates with half eaten food. Second, who was our waitress? We still don't know because the girls walk around like a chicken with their head cut off. We sat at our table for a good five minutes waiting for someone to acknowledge us. Then it took five more minutes to get our drinks. Then it took a good twenty to get our food. After that, we never saw anyone again. No refills. No asking if we needed anything. Absolutely no service what so ever. This was my worse experience in a restaurant. To top it off as we were paying a woman walked up to the cash register and stated that no one had waited on her family either. Where is management? This place desperately needs management. If you are craving 50 Taters, drive to Rainsville. This location is a headache! They need some order and new waitresses.
