Amazing Coney Dogs, Awesome Chicken.

A little hole-in-the wall in South St. Paul, only has a few tables for dining in. Everything is cooked when you order it, so it is all fresh and delicious. The Broasted chicken is very tasty. The real treat is the amazing Coney Dogs they serve. We eat Coney Dogs all over, and these are right up... read more

This is a local neighborhood food stop with great chicken. It is broasted, pressure fried, to a crispy golden brown that stays hot until you have finished every crispy juicy bite. They have a number of other things on the menu that are just as good, it is worth a stop to check out the menu and order some chicken!!!

The Coop is a local landmark, and I don't get it. The offer lots of deep-fried chicken, shrimp and similar staples, but the food is, to my taste, oily and over-priced. Go to KFC.

Small restaurant designed primarily for takeout. Seating for maybe ten people, I didn't really count. Food is terrific though, worth going for, and isn't that why we go to a restaurant? :-) There's a bit of a wait as each order is cooked fresh for the customer rather than taking pre cooked pieces off a warmer tray like a big...

I love places like this. Great food made by the family that runs the place and show that they care about their customers. There are only two tables, but I suspect most folks just grab the chicken and eat at home. My daughter and I had the double bacon cheeseburger, which had a grilled bun. Very tasty. The basket comes... More

Just love this place. Fantastic Chicken! And the ribs are fall off the bone tender. The people here are so friendly and the prices very reasonable. We have also used them in the past for catering.
