This is a family owned business which started with one store in 2000 and have expanded to their second location in 2005. Cooter Brown's specialized in BBQ ribs but has many other menu items to choose from. Cooter Brown's has a casual relaxed atmosphere. All of the food is cooked to order so you know it is fresh. This ain't fast food, it's good food.
