When will you want good, home-like, country cooking this is the place to visit. What I liked about this location was the layout of the inside of the restaurant. It had a raised floor for the booths, which my kids really liked. As always, the service was great and everything had a relaxed feel.

They try different food options all the time. One desert we liked was the Dr. Pepper cake. We also like the loaded French Fries - i.e. fries with cheese and bacon bits on top. It was a meal by itself.

My family was driving threw and we just stopped in for lunch. I have to say, from everywhere we went on our whole trip, this was the best food we've had, and one of the cheapest meals also! Highly recommended, I can't wait to find another Cotton Patch in the future! :)
