Cotham’s June 23, 2015

Built in 1917 Cotham’s has been a treasured Arkansas landmark for the past 100 years. Once used as a general store, Army commissary and as jail for those awaiting trial it has been a restaurant since 1984. Down home cooked plate lunches, it’s famous “Hubcap Burger” and everyone’s favorite Mississippi Mud Pie are always on the menu.

Unfortunately, the historic Cotham’s was completely destroyed by fire on May 30, 2017. It’s legacy lives on however as it’s sister restaurant, Cotham’s in the City, has been serving customers in Little Rock since 1999.
