Taters for Breakfast? Hit at New Hendersonville Restaurant
Dig in to stuffed and loaded taters at Taters & More.

A small, unassuming shopping center off Walton Ferry Road is where restaurant dreams come to life.
Jumbo & Delicious and Sax Deli, both popular Hendersonville eateries, started in the small space that seats less than 20.
And now, it’s taters’ turn.
Although it just opened May 9, Taters and More is already creating buzz in the community.
“Here in the South, we all like taters, and I wanted to do something different in Hendersonville,” said owner Randall McKnight.
His eatery is loosely based off the Tater Shack in Dickson, whose owner Robert Carter encouraged McKnight and even suggested serving taters for breakfast — so far, a good call.
Highlights from the menu
Each tater is cooked for an hour and a half, then sliced and dressed per order.Junkyard Tater with bacon, ham, sausage, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese and a side of gravyMama’s Tater with homemade meatloaf and cheeseBreakfast foods like omelettes and biscuit sandwichesCountry sausage comes from Hopkinsville, KentuckyBuild your own tater with 39 cent toppings and $1.39 meatsSnacks other than taters: fries, nachos, hot dogs and brats
McKnight is fully loaded with ideas for Taters & More, his first restaurant but second business.
Some evenings, he hopes to serve street fair food like nachos and funnel cakes from the open windows, and even get an ice cream machine.
He also plans to open a suggestion box for his customers to create their own tater ideas, which could be added to the menu.
“Let the community pick the potatoes they want,” McKnight said. “It’s all about the community.”
