The best turkey sandwich on white and butter peas. Can't be beat! Great mix of locals and travelers and right off exit 130 on I-65.

You must ask for hot turkey sandwich if you want it hot. If not you will get a cold sandwich.

I really love this place for a healthy and different menu when traveling to Pensacola.  They are always rotating out different sides.

Turkey is prepared in a variety of tasty ways. It's practically a 'must stop' each time we travel nearby.

I had a great experience at this restaurant. So great, that after I started eating, I ordered again before I left. Cassie and Isabella were so helpful. They let me taste their dressing before placing my order with no hesitation to do so. She really saw it as an opportunity to let me experience their flavors of their food. Definitely ... read more

We had never heard of this restaurant but thought we would patronize a local restaurant on our way from Destin to Atlanta. Great decision! Lots of good fresh food at a good price, and packaged food to go. Friendly staff. It was a perfect break...in our travels.More ... read more

Nice lunch on the porch
Both of us ordered Turkey, dressing & gravy. Cranberry sauce on the side with great butter beans. This place does Turkey right. It is so much better than fast food.

Because of Bates House of Turkey we decided to add numerous menu items to our Thanksgiving menu dinner and it was fabulous! Generally we make/cook our whole Thanksgiving menu, but since I’ve gotten sick my husband and I needed some extra help. So my husband drove to Bates House of Turkey from Pensacola and let’s just say everyone w ... read more

We always stop on the way to the beach to pick up the sliced turkey. This time we stayed and ate lunch. I had the Turkey Salad Sandwich and it was awesome!!!

Omg this place is amazing! I’m driving through and wanted to stop because my family is just fed up with eating McDonald’s and this spot was delicious and extremely affordable!

I have never had turkey salad before and I have truly been missing out! Just stopped in by a friends recommendation and was so glad I listened to her suggestion! Tennessee isn't that far away that I may have to plan a day trip just for another sandwich!

Bate's is a must have lunch every day for me when i am in townnfor business.  The open face turkey sandwich with gravy and cornbread stuffing really hits the spot and makes me feel like they stole my dad's recipe for the gravy.  Nice, sweet ladies always take care of your order promptly.

Delicious “real” food prepared onsite, clean bathrooms, friendly service, dog-friendly. By far the best stop on the way to the gulf coast!

A must stop on I65. Nice people, good food. Dont miss it!

'70s-era roadside restaurant. Very retro. Nice local option that isn't a chain.
Steven Ludwig via google.com - Jul 26, 2020
First time to stop and eat here. Clean and friendly atmosphere. I would have given five stars but the food was a little bland. The turkey was really good, but the dressing and sides could have used some seasoning for sure. The food definitely has potential.

The atmosphere and the food was wonderful.

Best Turkey sandwiches on earth! Everything they have for sale is great. Only complaint I have is the Turkey sandwiches are not as big as they once were and still same price. But, it is still a great place to get a decent meal or sandwich.

You won't find a better turkey sandwich ANYWHERE!  On our way home from the beach, we called ahead and ordered two turkey sandwiches.  They normally come on a sesame seed bun, but we wanted white bread.  The order was ready when we pulled up (it's right off the interstate), and we were out the door in a flash.  We ate in our care (be ... read more

Great food and great prices!
