Food and sevice was very good. Had a little wait to get served because it was busy. The food was good and the value was good. It is a good family eatery because of kid friendly menu.

Not much fan of country food, so I went in reluctantly. The server was wonderful and suggested fried pickles to try. Nice. For meal I stuck with vegetable and they were done to perfection.

I had never been to a Cotton Patch and was excited to try the one right down the road from my apartment FINALLY. I've grown so used to places giving you a good five people worth of food that I was shocked to see a reasonable portion size! The prices were good and the portions were PERFECT. Everything tasted amazing... More

A normal stop for my family to eat dinner. But on my last visit I was far from pleased. I ordered chicken fried steak. The steak was tough. Don't know if it was the cut or meat or what. My wife had fried chicken that was excellent. We will return for future visits.

Sole food capital of Lufkin. A very large selection on the menu. Building is spacious even when full. Service is great and prices average.

The restaurant was located conveniently by the Best Western, and we were told that it was the best non-fastfood restaurant for families with small and energetic children. The kids were fine, and the food was average. It served its purpose.

This restaurant had great service and food. The waitress was very friendly and took time to answer all of our questions about how the food was prepared. They have fried and broiled meals and lots of home cooked vegetables. This place has something for everyone. We stopped on a Sunday and although there were a lot of folks coming in... More

It actually shared the parking lot with the Best Western we were staying at. Our only disappointment-they don't serve breakfast. They don't even open until 11am! Everything we had there was good. Tasty, warm rolls come complimentary with every meal and it was easy to make a yummy lunch with either soup or salad and the rolls. We were in... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Lufkin. The new beef stew is delicious. The meat is tender and melts in your mouth. I loved the fried green tomatoes when they were in season. I averaged two orders weekly. The new cheese sticks are wonderful. I was doubtful about liking them, but they are delicious. The service... More

We eat here fairly often. The food is always good and lots of choices. I recommend the chicken and dumplings, they are excellent. I do not recommend the fried green tomatoes however, lol! The atmosphere is very country and has a local touch. The service is almost always good as well. Rolls with every meal make a nice touch, always... More
