We visited based on other reviews and we were underwhelmed overall. The atmosphere is neat, but the food was just OK (goat cheese burger was over cooked, Cajun chicken was dry, maytag chips were soggy but tasted ok, and the orange cream cake was good but the icing had a weird taste, bitter almost). Not worth a second trip.

Can't go to Johnson City without a stop at Cootie Browns - Locals hang out here no because of the view, or fancy cuisine, but because they have great food at reasonable prices....Try the Tex-mex!

We ate here several times during our stay in Johnson City. Each time the food was fantastic. Huge selection of beer. Tuesday is tamale Tuesday, $1.50 tamales. The deserts were fantastic as well.

The atmosphere is really cool. The food was great. My kids wanted a real hamburger and that's what they got plus it was huge. I had the muffuletta, very good.

A delicious meal and nice experience was had at Cootie Brown's. The menu offers a lot of choices. I had black bean dip appetizer and a jerk chicken sandwich with the home made thin sliced fried potatoes. Also a very nice beer selection. The décor is very unusual, yet fun. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and did... More
