Usually always good, but salmon is yucky.

Usually you can count on Cootie Browns to have fairly good and tasty food but not the case with their NEW salmon burger. It's canned salmon and so awful I couldnt finish it. Hope this one gets replaced with something new.

In meeting my friends here at Cootie Brown's I find a relaxing atmosphere and great food! They always order the pizza and I normally get the rib eye steak in medium rare fashion. There is a huge selection to choose from here but I'm always bound to get my favorite. A little steak sauce on my pretty large portion of... More

Casual atmosphere with eclectic decor. Serves sandwiches, burgers, pizza, and the like for approximately $7-12/person. Free parking out front in their lot. Good quality food- but nothing too special.

I'm not sure we'd ever have stopped in here, but our realtor took us here for lunch when we were moving to the area. It was our favorite casual restaurant when we lived in JC. We took all our visitors there. It was the #1 priority for food when we visited the area again after being gone a year. Their... More

Tasty food prepared often in a unique way -- large variety of thin crust pizzas, variety of sandwiches, mexican food, and homemade potato chips. Garish colors and recycled and refurbished furniture (for example, old wooden school-room chairs) and veranda -- in good weather -- open air seating. ozr2014

What a wonderful surprise this place was! In Johnson City for only one night and wanted a good meal after a long day of travel. Cootie Brown's was hopping!! The 20 minute wait was well worth it. Fire roasted pizzas were eclectic and great! Every plate looked good. Even offered us a free dessert for the wait.....and (shhh!) we did... More
