For a delicious meal you have to try Cotham's in the City. It's southern style soul food. Fried okra that is fresh not frozen. It's coated in a light dusting of cornmeal just like I make at home. Fabulous! Great fried catfish, hush puppies and...More

I had my first meal at the legendary Cotham’s and of course had to try the hub cap burger. It didn’t disappoint. It’s a huge hand made cheeseburger that is delicious. I was only able to finish 1/2 of it. They also have smaller burgers...More

I've yet to have something here that wasn't good. Everything always tastes fresh, and it's always hot. My favorite meal would probably be the chicken fried chicken with okra and mashed potatoes. Their okra is excellent, and their jalapeno cornbread is also delicious!

Everyone raves about this place, but I think it's just ok. It's a favorite of locals and legislators, but I'm sure it's because of the location. The service is also slow, as they are usually busy.

Had the veggie plate today and it was outstanding - the fried okra is extremely well seasoned. The jalapeño corn bread and pinto beans were outstanding! I can't believe I waited this long to try it out!

The LR location directly adjacent to the capital is a great place for plate lunches, burgers and sandwiches. Wish they were open for dinner. Great atmosphere in and old building downtown. Kind isolated in a sea of government buildings, but shouldn't deter one from going....More

A very interesting place, with many political 'placards'/associations on the wall. Great choices on the menu too.
