Our group got a big variety and all really liked what they got. The one with the ribs was thrilled. My veggie burger was terrific and the variety on the menu takes some time to read through.

I don't know if we would have gone to Cootie Brown's, but ended up there with out friends. My ribs were over cooked and had a different taste that I was not used to. Our friend's wife got some of her food that was cold. They corrected her problem. I will say the deserts are very good.

The decor is unique and the food delicious. They have homemade fries that are great and I personally love their Reuben Sandwich is the best around. Their Jerk Pizza is delicious also if you like that kind of food. The location in Johnson City and the one in Kingsport both serve good food but the service is better in Johnson... More

Of the many tasty items on this menu, I can't ever get beyond ordering the Jamaican pizza. It is absolutely the best tasting pizza on the planet. All dishes are reasonably priced. Service is excellent and the ambiance is relaxed and casual. I highly recommend Cootie's when you are in the mood for some casual, tasty and relaxed dining.
