The Vortex Bar & Grill

The Vortex has nachos. The Vortex has tots. And guess what else? It has nachos on TOP of tater tots. That's right— all the meaty, cheesy, spicy goodness of nachos with a tater tot chaser. Trust us. [Photo]

Park 75 Restaurant

Copy Link

It's no secret that chef Robert Gerstenecker of Park 75 at the Four Seasons offers a Wednesday lunchtime burger bar for 16 lucky diners every week. What you may not know is one of the burger sides is a pile of loaded tater tots. [Photo]

Fox Bros Bar-B-Q

The Lopez at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q combines the best of both worlds: tots smothered in brisket chili and covered in melted cheese. Also don't miss the Tomminator, an order of tots with tons of cheese topped with Brunswick stew. [Photo]

The Nook

Copy Link

No trip to the Nook is complete without trying their signature "totchos," a combination of nachos and tater tots. Popular options include pulled pork with Coca-Cola barbecue sauce, spicy buffalo chicken with blue cheese, and the Mac Daddy with mac and cheese and house-made beef chili. Can't get enough of their tots? Try the Bloody Mary, which is garnished with a savory piece of bacon, pepperoncinis, blue cheese stuffed olives, steak, a slice of toast, a hard-boiled egg, and—wait for it—tots. [Photo]

Bone Lick BBQ

Bone Lick's Big Tots combine tots, house smoked cheddar, house bacon, sausage and pulled pork, chipotle barbecue sauce, and jalapenos. [Photo]

Vegetables never tasted better. Chai Pani Decatur's okra fries tossed with lime, salt, and seasoning are so good, you won't miss the potatoes.

The Pinewood Tippling Room

Copy Link

The Pinewood is known for its cocktails, but its Southern-inspired dinner menu is solid too. Want breakfast for dinner? Try the grit tots with sweet chili aioli.

The Iberian Pig

Copy Link

While known for its charcuterie, the Iberian Pig also has some impressive vegetarian options. Try the eggplant fries with spicy aioli, which might just be even more addictive than their potato counterparts. [Photo]

Rathbun's

Copy Link

A trip to Rathbun's isn't complete without YaYa's eggplant steak fries with confectioners sugar. Buttermilk and parmesan cheese provide a crispy, savory coating. [Photo]

Neighbor's Pub

Copy Link

Drunk food doesn't get much better than the loaded tater tots at Neighbor's Pub. The loaded pub tots feature shredded cheddar and jack cheeses, creamy queso, chopped bacon, shredded lettuce, sour cream, and jalapeno. [Photo]

The Square Pub

Order your beer with a side of Square Pub's green chile cheese tots— a plate of tots smothered in Hatch green chile sauce and cheddar jack cheese. [Photo]
