Waitress Samantha was so sweet, really made me feel at home. Also, the Monday Chicken Fried Steak dinner was a great deal for a huge amount of food.

Cotton Patch has lots of good stuff on their menu, so you have a lot of choices. It's mostly home cooking type stuff and it's tasty. IT's a big place and there are usually a lot of people but the service is reasonably quick and the food is good..

Had a good lunch here as it is fairly consistent. Had the fried green tomatoes which were good and the crawfish duo which is always good and flavorful. Squash side dish needs to be rethought out. Otherwise a good meal with attentive service!

Cotton Patch is always good wholesome country food. The servers are nice and the prices are right. It's hard to go wrong here. Check out the board for daily specials. This is my favorite restaurant in Lufkin.

We had a great experience at this restaurant. The food came out hot and delicious. Our waitress, Samantha, was friendly. She made our dining very enjoyable. Be sure to try their fried green tomatoes and peach cobbler. We will be coming back for more.

This was our third time to visit a Cotton Patch restaurant in Texas; each time it has been en route or returning from a cruise in Houston/Galveston. We most recently visited the restaurant in Lufkin. I ordered the strawberry pecan salad and, on the advice of our server, substituted salmon for the chicken. I was embarrassed when my husband asked... More

We called in our order and arrived shortly after that and were prepared to wait. After 25 minutes they told us it would be another 20 minutes for the meatloaf. We finally got our order (5 meals) but they were missing my ice tea. I asked for unsweet and when we got home it was Sweet tea! YUCK! The food... More

Honestly one of the best places I've eaten at.. Food is good home cooked type of food. Fried green tomato's were great.. The mac and cheese is just like my Father use to make, and I was thrilled to find some place that made it..
