Cotton Patch seems to be all over the map, menu-wise. At first, you think they are trying to fill the voice left by Black-Eyed Pea and Good Eats. Then, it's like they are copying Chili's or Friday's. Ultimately, in my opinion, they succeed in neither the "home cooking" or casual dining segments.
Cotton Patch likely appeals to families with picky eaters. Can't decide between chicken fried steak, shrimp, quesadillas, salads, or fish & chips? Don't worry, they've got you covered. Sort of the same all-over-the-place menu you find at Cheesecake Factory. But only Cotton Patch would have the nerve to list fish & chips on the same page as their heart healthy items. (Mind you, they are not listing fish & chips AS heart healthy, but the "basket" combos are listed just above the 3 heart healthy choices.
There are just too many other better choices in this segment to recommend Cotton Patch. Personally, I'd rather they scale back the menu choices and concentrate on, say, the home-cooking style that was done well by the previous Black-Eyed Pea.
