Great for takeout

This is what I consider a basic American restaurant...not too much completely homemade, but fresh tasting and relatively inexpensive. I have found that orders for pickup are made really quickly, I leave the house when I hang up and it's ready when I get there...no waiting like at some other places.

Good comfort food with fast service. Large menu with all kinds of vegetables that are tasty. Easy location on HWY 59. Always lots of staff that greet you at the door. The lunch menu is cost friendly and has large servings.

This restaurant is well patronised and the cheese and potato soup sells out very fast, Good menus for young and old with a fast attentive service with a smile.Nothing is to much trouble with a continuous soft drink fill up and a bill at the end that will not break the bank

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.

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.

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
