Trip Advisor didn't let us down. Great potatoes. We got the CCR and it was delicious. They have a kid's menu as well if your kids don't like baked potatoes. Would go back again.

There's really not much to do in Huntsville, which is surprising since it's a college town. But potato shack offers some pretty good cheap food, drinks, pool tables, and a place to hang out.

Enjoyed a quick filling meal before a BearKat football game. You should not have a problem deciding what to eat - variety of potatoes.

How could you not give this place a 5-star? Their meals are very affordable and delicious. Great place to go watch a football or baseball game and basketball. Nice outside area with 4 big screen TVs, and billiard tables inside. I might add they have a full bar with drink specials.

Great good and fast counter service! I enjoyed the BBQ Chicken Potato and my spouse enjoyed the CCR Potato.

I had the boudin and alligator bites. Both were good, but, the gator bites were like the boudin, with other ingredients. I was expecting gator chunks. May want to clear that up on the menu. Since I had it delivered, not sure about the service, but, I would return to try more.

My husband ordered the Philly cheese steak and their was no meat on it. Took it up and talk with the manager and he said he put meat on it and did not offer to fix it. It had way to many mushrooms. No meat. Will not be back. Cheese sticks are horrible. Tried to go to their web page... More

We had a great time at this restaurant with our SHU student. It is a casual, favorite hang out with around 25 different baked potato offerings and toppings. Large outdoor patio area. Fun, inexpensive and delicious.

I had heard good things about this place but I was disappointed. For a place that only serves potatoes the two potatoes we ordered were hard in places and the toppings were just good. I will not return and I'm sure there are better places in the area.

We are in Huntsville playing a baseball tournament at Sam Houston State University and the parents suggested we eat at the Potato Shack. The SPUDS and wings are AWESOME! I suggest you to come and eat. The Potato Shack is a cool place with Jenga and Dominoes and several TV's to watch sports.
