We eat there a lot. Love the vibe, love that it is not a chain. Everthing we have ordered has been super. Wait staff is great. We eat there again and again. I

NE TN is not known for fine dining. Cootie Brown's is no exception. Average all the way around. Doubt that I'll go back....nothing memorable about it.

Hidden in plain sight is a restaurant that I can best describe as a mashup of culture. Featuring foods from different places around the world, Cootie Brown's was a surprise to me.

A very different dining venue. They are building one in Kingsport, TN, so they are doing something right. The food is good and the portions are huge with a small price. Stays busy and family friendly

I am in the Johnson City area about once a quarter on visits to Jonesborough. One day about 2 years ago I was complaining to an innkeeper about the lack of vegetarian options. My likeminded innkeeper friend recommended that I head over to Johnson City and try Cootie Brown's. I was put off at first by the drive and also... More

My wife has extended family from Johnson City, and we stopped in on our visit wit them. They as locals seemed to really like the place and the food was excellent. We all shared pizzas and there was plenty of food for all. Highly recommended!
