We have always driven by but never stopped at Bates House of Turkey. Recently, we stopped in for lunch. Enjoyed the pulled BBQ turkey sandwich,chili and turkey wrap. Turkey was moist and so delicious yum yum yum. Apparently this place has been in business for over for 40years. Highly recommend this place. Environment similar to cracker barrell

Bates is such a bright spot on I65. Knowing that we found a place that is not "the same fast food" made our day. The turkey was moist and tender, the cornbread stuffing was superb. The place is spotless. We thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ turkey sandwich and the open faced hot turkey sandwich. Our only regret is that we didn't... More

Great place for lunch. Fresh vegetable sides and they let grow ups get the kid meal for a smaller appetite.

I have eaten at Bates many times over 40 years and they have consistently offered good meals at a good price. This is a worthy place to eat. It is self serve as you order and pick up at a counter but the dishes are well prepared and seasoned. This is a great place for families that are traveling. They... More

This is a great place to stop if you like turkey because that's the only option here.There are plenty of turkey dishes here but my favorite is the Hickory Smoked Sandwich with pasta salad.My family and I always come here whenever we are traveling to the beach.I also hear they have some great gumbo.

My favorite is the Turkey Salad Sandwich. It is great to get sandwiches to go when headed to south to the beach or you can take a break and dine in and... More

After reading the reviews, I had a craving for a full Thanksgiving dinner, so I stopped at lunchtime. There was a lot of food for the money, but it reminded me more of cafeteria food than a homemade meal. I'll stick to my fried turkey dinner on Thanksgiving

We have stopped at Bates a few times when traveling to or from the Alabama Gulf Coast. You place your order and pay at the counter, then wait for your name to be called. Pick up your napkins, eating utensils and drinks yourself - no table service. You also bus your own table when finished. The food is good and... More

If you are looking for Plates and silverware, this aint the place. Its bare bones, plastic plates and utensils, but the food is great if you love Turkey. Its quick, convenient and most importantly tasty. Its been a fixture to Greenville for a long time. When you are done you dispose of the dishes in the trash containers. The pies... More
