Employer Quick Look

Cotton Patch Cafe started in Nacogdoches, TX in 1989 with the idea of creating a family restaurant, where the food is always made from scratch, with only the freshest ingredients. 27 years later we have expanded to 50 restaurants (and growing), and we’re still taking the time to do things right.
At Cotton Patch Cafe we hand roll the dumplings every day for our chicken and dumplings. We still hand bread our famous chicken fried steak to order. We are known for our traditional southern favorites, but over the years our menu has really expanded…which now includes a heart healthy menu section, premium salads, and delicious grilled seafood and steaks. But no matter how large we grow, some things will never change. Cotton Patch Café continues to make wholesome foods, fresh from scratch, and that will always be what we do.

The idea behind that first Cotton Patch Cafe in Nacogdoches was to create a community restaurant that offered great food made from scratch, served by caring folks who are part of your community. As the Cotton Patch Cafe reputation grew, more restaurants opened. Each fostered pride in its community. That became part of the Cotton Patch Cafe culture. Cotton Patch Cafe donates to hundreds of wonderful charities and causes every year. That recipe works. Today Cotton Patch has 50 locations (and growing) in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico & Arkansas. "Our culture is to give" says Kathy Nelson, CEO of Cotton Patch Cafe. "Cotton Patch isn't only about food. We want to help people live better lives."
