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!

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.

'70s-era roadside restaurant. Very retro. Nice local option that isn't a chain.

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.

The price value is excellent. Enjoyed a turkey dinner with all the fixings with a sweet potato and butter beans. Two meals and drinks right at $20 and the quality was pretty darn good. The decor will take you back to the 60’s or 70’s....More ... read more

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!
I was traveling on I65 when I spotted the first "Bates House of Turkey" billboard. I was intrigued, so I exited the interstate in Greenville and saw the restaurant right off the exit. Due to Covid-19, they were only selling "to go" orders, but the...More ... read more

The food was delicious. Super fast service, friendly smiling people at the door. The roasted turkey sandwich, the smoked turkey sandwich, pasta salad and key lime pie were amazing!!!

A slice of Americana. Road side diner serving turkey. Had the turkey chili taco salad...lots of it..loved it..shared it with hubby who had the classic open faced turkey sammie. Great service, clean restroom..perfect lunch stop. Coming back from Selma & Montgomery!

It probably should get more than 3 stars but I just couldn't give that based on my experience. Personally I like the browned edges of the dressing and I like it not so moist. They serve the turkey and dressing under gravy, the turkey is sliced so very thin. Also I would have preferred dark meat. The side items, sweet potato and scall ... read more

Turkey for breakfast? Why not! They open at 8am. Hashbrown casserole was delicious. Nothing too special about the rest of my food, but I like the story of the farm and how it's been in the family for several generations. Interesting stop on our road trip.

We were on our way up I-65 today and stopped at Bates House of Turkey in Greenville, Alabama. It’s just off of the highway, and it’s a great place to stop for lunch or dinner, or to get something to take with you. Their turkey sandwich is super — smoked turkey, crisp chilled lettuce, a touch of mayo and bread-and-butter pickles on a ... read more

Turkey had a fresh smoked savory taste. Everything I got was wonderful! I eat here every time I pass through Montgomery. Definitely a place to check out!

If you like turkey, you MUST stop here. They have the best turkey ever...they way turkey is meant to taste. It's very quaint and looks like a step back in time, nevertheless, you owe it to yourself to experience one of their meals. It's at exit 130 off I-65. They also sell fun t-shirts.
