Been enjoying all that The Gin has to offer

Been enjoying all that The Gin has to offer for a few months now, and I can honestly state that it’s on my fav’s list. The ambiance, the staff, and the food is/are all amazing. I still can’t decide which is my actual food fav though…way too difficult to choose. It’s between the Hot Italian Sandwich and the wings. The Garlic Knots are a definite must have appetizer for sure, and the Wagyu hot dog or burger are yumZ.

Everyone working there has been superbly superb – but on a super lucky day, you’ll get to meet Katherine. She’s too genuine, attentive and sweet to not remember here. Thanks so much Gin!!

Go check it out.

Obsessed with this spot

Obsessed with this spot. Great patio, great food, amazing service! We came in with 2 toddlers and a 2 week old baby…. chaos! They were patient, accommodating, and again – great food! Non meat friendly bean burger was outstanding! Will be back for sure

Food was amazing!

Food was amazing!! We had the Wagyu Cheeseburger and it was 5 star excellent and only $11! My son had the Wagyu Chicken Fried Steak and he gave it 5 stars too! The French fries were crispy and hot on some of the trays and cold and crispy on others. My 4 year old granddaughter had super hot fries on her kids chicken fingers and the fries served with my cheeseburger were cold so we traded fries. Parents- you might want to check the temperature of the kids meals before they eat.

The restaurant is super cute and it’s huge! There was live entertainment outside and it was crowded there so we sat inside. There are many rooms with lots of spaced out seating – both tables and chairs and booths.

Alexandra was our server and she was very friendly and helpful. She came to let us know that the kitchen was backed up with orders and there was a delay in getting our food. I appreciate updates like that, especially when dining with our 3 grandkids.

We ordered 3 pieces of the chocolate cake “to go”. We sent a couple slices home with my sons family and one for me to split with hubby. Sharing a slice was the perfect amount and we had a glass of milk at home to go with it. Rich chocolate cake with chocolate icing and chocolate chips around the edges – so good!! Doesn’t get much better than that!

I will definitely be back!!

We come here once a month

We come here once a month and I have to say these reviews are killing me…

As a native Texan… chili should have beans in it. If you’re unsure ask 🙂

As far as their pizza, it’s honestly amazing. You can tell
The dough is fresh and airy. I got the Don pizza today and it was so good! Lots of meat toppings and wasn’t dripping with grease.

Their side salads are also very good. You’ll get a good mix of greens and iceberg making it worth it.

We’ll be back for sure 🙂

Our Story

The story of The Cotton Gin Café began in 2001 in Prosper, TX.

The History

The restaurant was founded as a much-needed oasis for the town’s 3,000 residents to find community over delicious homestyle meals. But as Prosper began growing rapidly, The Cotton Gin was purchased in 2015 by the Pettis family, who dreamed of expanding the establishment alongside the town, while still maintaining the charm and nostalgia that had made it a local staple.
