House of Turkey never disappoints. Might want to back off the nutmeg in the sweet potato souffle and add some sage to the dressing. Always a treat!

Awesome stop!! A must for us!!

Always a wonderful experience! I got the classic Hickory roasted turkey sandwich and my wife got the turkey salad sandwich on wheat. The Hickory roasted turkey was amazing as always and she said that the turkey salad was excellent.

You gotta love a restaurant that's ALL local, free-range turkey! Hubby and I were in the area after Hurricane Ida, and enjoyed hot turkey sandwiches for dinner yesterday. Came with jellied cranberry sauce and really tasty dressing. It was like having a mini-Thanksgiving dinner in Sept! Not fancy, but clean (bathrooms, too.) Cute souv ... read more

This place is always amazing. The ladies behind the counter are sweet and helpful. The food is always fantastic. I get their turkeys for our family Thanksgiving meal every year.

First visit after passing by for 20+ years. Should have dropped in years ago and will return my next trip traveling I-65 south. Very friendly staff and surprisingly reasonable prices.

My wife ate here once several years ago and ever since we’ve been meaning to come by and we finally got to do so yesterday when we were driving back from Port St. Joe - yes, we took a detour just so that we can eat lunch here. Well, my wife’s recommendation and review were spot on. I had a turkey plate with cornbread dressing, colesl ... read more

Stopped here on the way back to Montgomery. The service was outstanding and the staff was super friendly. We really felt at home. The food was prepared with love and seasoned perfectly. We will be returning in the near future.

Mandatory I-65 pit stop to and from the beach. No exceptions. Alabama State Troopers may stop you to check for the receipt so don’t throw it away. Get the sandwich with cranberry sauce and revisit thanksgiving for a minute in the summer.

Consistently the best smoked turkey I've had! I order ahead and pick up a pound of sliced turkey when I'm traveling near their location. And sometimes on trips we will order sandwiched and pick them up for lunch on the road. Will not disappoint!!

We stopped for a quick lunch. We both had sandwiches. Although it was good, I didn't think it was anything special. I prefer a warm sandwich and the wrap was cold. I liked the cranberry salad as a different side to chips. If I went back I would try the meat and veggie sides. It seemed like more food that I was hungry for at the time.

Really like Bates Turkey! Great place to stop and have a bite. They don't advertise it, but have a dog friendly eating area outside on the porch and under a gazebo. Good when it's not a scorcher out!

We love this place! Excellent food and awesome service!

I never get anything that tastes bad. Everything I have ever had has always been very good.

We stopped by Bates on the way home from Florida. We haven't been there in a long time, but everything tasted really good and the staff were all very nice. We will go back soon.
Kim King via - May 18, 2021
