Nice Menu Selection

I think this is a chain restaurant but this is the first one I visited. I ate lunch and was surprised by the wide variety of menu options. Everything went well, good quality.

This restaurant has daily lunch specials which are very good and reasonably priced. Service was excellent and manager even came by the table. Appears to all be fresh. I had hamburger steak and I know it was not previously frozen. Vegetables were also very good and a nice selection. Great family restaurant as well

Went there today for a late lunch and had the vegetable plate, very good. Hubby had the old fashion salad, hugh with crispy, hot fried chicken very good also. Our server, Jacob or Jessie, sorry I did not catch the name, was very attentive and nice brought everything with a smile. The meatloaf is good, Chicken Fried Steak is good... More

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.

Thank Kevin B
