Homey restaurant where the locals eat. Comfort food, friendliness and tasty food await inside.
We have a new favorite place to grab a burger in Texas. We’ve enjoyed Whataburger in the past, but when we are near Teague, Texas we plan to stop in at Cookie’s Place.
Venue: Restaurant where the locals eat. A homey atmosphere offering tables as well as a tv if you care to watch. Don’t judge the interior by the exterior. Comfort food and friendliness are inside.
Atmosphere: Very relaxed. We were invited to holler if we needed anything.
Food Fare: Burgers, fish, and soul food. If you are in a hurry, ask what is on the food line for a hot, delicious meal. If you have time, order off the menu. We enjoyed the chicken fried steak (off the line), bacon cheese burger and iced tea.
Recommendations: Try the buttermilk pie! It was a large piece and tasted great. The banana pudding was beyond tasty. My husband, who doesn’t do creamed banana anything, loved it.
Service: Solid service. We were waited on by a young lady, Cookie herself, and her husband. The young lady provided knowledgeable recommendations when asked. French fries were nice and crispy as requested. Cookie brought a pitcher of tea to our table for my husband who is a heavy drinker.
Return Rating: Definitely! Be sure to say hello to Cookie!
Casual “brick-lined pub” located on a small town main street in Mahomet, IL. Phenomenal chorizo stuffed mushrooms, crispy french fries, and great tasting hamburgers earned a return rating of “definitely!”
An Amazing Eatery–J.T. Walker’s
401 E. Main Street, Mahomet, IL
Venue: A casual “brick-lined pub” located on a small town main street. Great for a date night or family meal.
Atmosphere: Dining on a Sunday evening this past February afforded us our pick of seats and ease of enjoying our table conversation in the restaurant. We had 3 adults and one baby in our party.
Food Fare: Everything we had was prepared well and delicious. Some of the best hamburgers we have ever had. To date, these burgers rival the Upside Down Burgers at Gronk’s in Superior, WI. We enjoyed the California Burger, Black Jack Burger, and The House Burger. My side of french fries are some of the best I have had – cooked crispy as requested! My husband commented that the coleslaw was exceptional. The side salad with the other burger was enjoyed as well. The only food complaint was the minimal sauce on the House Burger.
Recommendation: Definitely try the Chorizo Stuffed Mushrooms – they were phenomenal!
Service: Our waitress did her job well, but there was a disconnect between her and the staff delivering our food. We had to ask again for our lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onions that were requested when we ordered the hamburgers. Also, it would have been nice to receive appetizer plates with the stuffed mushrooms rather than sharing the serving platter to eat from. When additional sauce for the House Burger was requested, our waitress brought mayonnaise rather than the specific chipotle sauce. This was disappointing. Extra lemons were requested for the baby in our party and promptly delivered to our table.
Return Rating: Definitely—the food was that amazing despite the few glitches in service.
