Nate's offers comfort food at its best, along with some of the most scrumptious BBQ around. Burgers, meatloaf, pot roast and then also awesome salads, too! But save room for dessert! A nice feature too is the availability of half-orders for a great price, in case you don't quite feel like stuffing yourself, it's sooooo nice to have a smaller... More

I was impressed by the numbers of locals who go to this restaurant. Clearly it is a favorite in the Cottonwood area. While the service was a little lacking, the food was excellent and atmosphere was homey. The value was excellent and the portions were appropriate. Thanks to the family atmosphere, you can take children to this restaurant.

We were visiting the area and saw a groupon for this. Great deal. The atmosphere is pretty "western bar" but the food was surprisingly good. Waitress was very friendly and helpful to out of town guests. If I lived in this area I'd probably visit quite a bit for good food and very reasonable prices

Would definitely go back if we were in the area. My boyfriend and I (visiting from Toronto) asked for a restaurant reference at a local gas station ... great referral to Nate's! We had the 2 for $10 burger and side special. Great food & great value. Also we shared the bread pudding for dessert. Outstanding. Yes, seriously! The best... More

Excellent food, qantities and prices. Every dish I saw coming from the kitchen looked fantastic. We had the pork chops and the combination Barbie sampler with the "great" sweet potato fries, plus we did the soup and salad bar for just $3 more. What a meal!!! Home made soups are out of this world and the home made cucumber vinegar... More

We had the BBQ burger with a smokey burger, cheddar cheese, bacon and onion rings on top. It was very good! We also ordered the daily special tuna melt. It was like no other!! It had lots of quality bacon and even real crumbled bacon on top!! The prices are cheap and the food is yummy! We drove from Sedona,... More

This place was awesome. The food was excellent and you were given huge amounts. The smoked chicken quesadilla appetizer was superb. I had the ribs that were very meaty and the sweet potato fries were fresh cut. My friend had the pot roast dinner which was also very tasty. I would go back again.

This time we ordered ribs and salmon tacos. Ribs are great and the barbecue sauce is good, but I'll order the ribs dry next time...too much sauce. The salmon tacos are were boring and the corn tortillas were just wrong. Warm flour tortillas would be better and they need a little something more to be interesting enough to order again.... More

We had lunch at Nate's today. Loved the cowboy caviar, baby back ribs and cherry pie. The staff was very friendly - I think it's worth a visit.
