Found this place a bit by accident but is was clear why it is a "go to" for many! Excellent friendly service by a staff that is well versed in what they do well. We had the homage chips with blue cheese-wow! Our waitress recommended the goat cheese burger and I could not have been happier! It was delicious with... More

We have been going to Cootie Brown's for years and have never had a bad experience. We love the food , decor and the servers are always very friendly. This is the place we like to take out of town guests because it isn't a chain restaurant and we know the food will be great. I love their specialty pizzas... More

Very busy on a typical Friday night! One slight drawback is no place to wait for a table indoors when it's raining. We shared a Jerk Chicken Pizza, it was awesome! Didn't partake in any beer as we were traveling thru town but they had quite a selection of bottled beers. Busy, but fast service and food prep so people... More

Tonight my wife and I chose Cootie Brown's for a early, light dinner. We arrived at 5 o'clock and requested inside seating. The restaurant has a unique decor. Funky murals and paisley colors, almost a Jamaican look, all very clean. The servers are young, attractive, energetic and knowledgeable of the very large menu. They have a good selection of bottled... More

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.
