This restaurant is near our home and we have eaten there numerous times, always hoping for a better experience. The food is American home style and my favorite is the fried chicken breast. The food is typically fine, but the service is frequently off. The staff seems to be ill informed about their menu and the kitchen runs out of... More

Portions are NEVER the same! Used to love going there. Nice variety of menu selection. However, two of our favorite items have been their chicken strips and the chicken friend steaks. Finally stopped going rather than continue to be frustrated EVERY TIME!

Has some good southern dishes. I recommend going before 8:00. Good prices and a good variety of healthy dishes and heart attack evoking food.

I enjoy eating here, I can order a good chicken fried steak or port chops with good side of sizes and not break the bank. Good home cooking at a reasonable price.

On my next visit in September to this location, I ordered a "luncheon-sized" steak, and it was so huge, I ran off the sides of the plate. Don't fill up with the warm rolls and butter. The sweet tea was a bit too sweet for even me, a Texan. But the fully loaded potato was filling if that's all you... More

The Cotton Patch Restaurant offers a wide variety of healthy foods or if you want to go whole-hog then order the big juicy Chicken Fried Steak, especially, during their Monday special price.
