This restaurant is a must on your visit to Nacogadoches. Our waiter Mike was so nice and friendly. The food was cheap, hot and tasty. The restaurant had a sans sauci atmosphere. We really enjoyed it.

My friends like it.... I was not impressed with it at all. I found the food to be bland and unseasoned.

Good country cooking. My daughter had the meatloaf and said she rated it a 10. I had the pot roast and it was really pretty tasty. Our service was excellent. The prices were good. The place was clean even the bathroom was spotless. It's pretty close to SFA so the prices are reasonable so any student could eat here. Axe... More

Good home cooking, not skimpy portions Fun family atmosphere. The potato soup is to die for! Fish is fresh and not greasy

This is the first time we had eaten at this particular restaurant but have eaten at other Cotton Patch restaurants before. We knew what to expect and were not disappointed. My wife had the Cobb Salad and I had Chicken Tenders with brocolli/rice casserole as my side. All very tasty although the tenders were a bit overcooked and casserole a... More

My wife and I, joined by our son, had a late lunch at this establishment this past Monday. Few customers were there because the lunch crowd had disbursed. Our orders were taken immediately, and the appetizer (Onion Rings) was on the table in no time. (These are the best onion rings in town, and maybe in Texas.) My wife loves... More

This is my favorite place to go for a chicken fried steak, chicken fried chicken, and Peas and cornbread are also really good. Service is always great, and it always has a clean and comfortable atmosphere. Prices are good too for all the food you get. I never have to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seated.

If you like country southern style food this is the place! The veggies are simply great along with the rolls and cornbread. Their menu offers a variety and a wonderful selection of sides. We live here and eat here often. Ryan was an amazing server!

Cotton Patch isn't horrible, it's just not all that great either. If you're going to stop in Nacogdoches for home cooking, do yourself a favor and go to Nacburger or Clear Springs instead.
