It all started 30 years ago when we opened the first Cotton Patch Cafe in Nacogdoches, Texas, in 1989. Our goal was to create a home-style family restaurant and serve up classic southern recipes made fresh from scratch in a warm, inviting atmosphere where guests feel at home. We arrive early in the day to chop, blend, batter and freshly prepare each tried and true recipe. We taste the sauces, double-check the spices and make sure each day we’ve got nothing but the perfect flavor for each dish. It may take some time, but we know how to give you homestyle scratch cooking.
Cotton Patch’s recipe for success goes far beyond our menu. We are proud to be a part of the communities where we are located and to serve our friends and neighbors the food we make every day. Whether we’re supporting the local Veterans or participating in your hometown parade, we want to do more than just cook for you, we want to celebrate our town together.
At Cotton Patch, we believe it’s important to take care of each other. It was that way when we started and continues to grow stronger every year. 30 years strong…And finding ways to give back to our neighbors.
