In town for a trip and decided to try Cotham's. It was a great decision!! Service was very good, setting is interesting and food was great. Hubcap burgers, onion rings, chicken fried steak and the trimmings were all very tasty! Nice portions and very reasonable prices!! The Mississippi Mud and chocolate fried pie were an excellent way for topping off... More

Yes you have found the best soul food in little rock. England, ar near the airport is the original location and historic. Downtown location only open in daytime so be sure and stroll in and you might find any given politician in house while your there.

Cothmans may be known for their burger, but this location (in town) in my opinion has a really good fried chicken plate lunch. The batter is just right, crispy and served with mashed potatoes with gravy and a roll. The gravy is excellent!! Cant beat it with a wet squirrel folks! If you want to hubcap - ride out to... More

This was my first time to eat at Cotham's in the City. I guess I aged myself when I asked my son if it was in the old TGI Friday's, back when TGIF was a novelty, building in Little Rock. I quickly found out it was and is cleverly decorated with political yard signs given its close proximity to the... More

Okay, it's a block from the Capitol and attracts traffic from the lunch crowd. It is a branch of the REAL Cotham's in Scott, AR, which is a supreme dive with the greasiest best hamburgers (do not get the hubcap unless there are four of you), which is built out over a cypress swamp heading toward serious delta farm country....

This is a great local place that serves...well, very good but lots of fried foods. If this is your type of food then it really is worth the stop. I ordered the appetizer plate of onion rings and got a huge portion that alone could have been a meal. The special for the day was chicken fried steak so I... More

My husband found this place because it had been featured on TV. It is only open for lunch until 2, and we went straight here after flying into Little Rock on a Friday. He got the Hubcap Burger which is literally the size of a hubcap. I got a regular cheeseburger, but the most impressive food to me was the... More

What a fantastic lunch spot in little rock! Down home cooking and an even better atmosphere is what you'll get here! I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes and the fish plate; or anything on the menu!
