My family has enjoyed BBQ from coast-to-coast and internationally. We have had various styles and regional BBQ tendencies. We have had extraordinary home-made BBQ like that of one Mr. Dunn in Florida. We have had not-so-good BBQ. But our family really enjoys a good BBQ and we continue to try different places with different recipes. On our drive back from... More

I was visiting Oneonta NY for the first time when I was a vendor/teacher at SHIFT spiritual fair Mother's Day weekend. And after a long day of sharing with clients I long for a good meal with the people I've worked with. My guests took me to 3 restaurants they thought I would like and this was one. When I... More

We were visiting family in Oneonta, NY and they suggested Brooks. It's a big place and a local favorite. When we arrived they wouldn't seat us until our whole party was there. It's a busy place for weekday lunches. The food was very good. We had the pulled pork meal which included a trip to the salad bar.The salad bar... More

Unpretentious restaurant. Nice salad bar, cole slaw the way I like it. Drink refills, bone bucket on every table. Dessert menu was extraordinary. We got there just ahead of the dinner crowd and were seated immediately, which is something to consider when planning next visit, because after 5:00ish it got extremely crowded and the wait for seating looked scary. Kid... More

Had lunch at Brooks' House of BBQ on July 15. I was concerned about the amount of cars in the parking lot, but we were seated after a very short wait in a queue. The hostess was very friendly and the restaurant large and very clean. Our waitress came promptly to our table and got our drink orders. From there... More

Nothing fancy here.. Just good food in a comfortable setting at prices most can afford. Simple salad bar comes with all entrees along with choice of potato/veggie. BBQ sauce is different than most... A sweet tangy au jus type sauce. Not tomato, not spicy, no overpowering... Perfect. I had pulled pork platter with fries and salad bar, hubby had combo... More

An absolute must stop while in the Cooperstown area. Closed on Monday's. About a 20 minute ride from Dreams Park but well worth it. Salad bar is OK. Offers senior citizen pricing.

Based on previous experiences with Brooks BBQ food trucks in our area, we decided to give this place a try for lunch when passing through the area. We very much enjoyed the chicken we've gotten from the food trucks int he past. The chicken here was just as good, and my wife also tried the pulled pork which she enjoyed.... More

Delicious BBQ chicken and great salad bar. Had chic and ribs and I felt chicken was tastier. Enjoyed the sald bar, big selection of salad toppers.

So be warned they are not open on Mondays (a lot of retaurants in Oneota seem to be closed on Mon). We had been told it was the best BBQ in town so we gave it a second try. I had the pulled pork with onion rings, both kids got the ribs off the kids menu and my husband got... More
