Nice dinner near Allstar village

We stopped here for dinner out first night in Cooperstown! Very reasonably priced food. Walked out of there tip and all for a family of 5 for $50! I wasn't wild about the bbq sauce. The chicken was very yummy! Service was good. Sat very quickly even though they were crowded.

We've been eating at Brooks' for years & have never been disappointed. When we can't agree on another place to go we always end up at Brook's. I've tried the ribs & some or the other BBQ items but without a doubt the chicken is the best. The Brooks family has been cooking chicken just like this for over 50... More

This is a must stop if you are in the area around Oneonta/Cooperstown. Their prices are great, inexpensive. Their BBQ chicken, with their own special sauce, is simply great. It is worth the trip. The menu is more than chicken, though. I once had the combo chicken/ribs but regretted it. I did not love those ribs and wanted to eat... More

Brooks is a standby. Always great chicken and a good value. Whether take out or eat in, it is always a reliable stop when passing through.

Good salad bar, but great BBQ chicken & ribs! We drive out to central New York state several times a year to visit friends and always stop at Brook's BBQ. We have our lunch and then order dinner to go and bring it to our hosts who look forward to it.

This place was full of locals on a Tuesday afternoon, so this is always a good sign!.The line wasn't really long, but I guess it could test your patience during weekends. Service was fast, the food delicious ( specially the BBQ ribs) and the price more than reasonable. I will come back, no doubt about it!.

Chicken is excellent as well as the pulled pork. Basically anything you get from Brooks is great. Very friendly staff. Love it. Would recommend if you have not been there, go.

We stopped there this weekend. We had been there before. As always the food was good. My girlfriend was not overly impressed with her chicken, didn't have the bar-b-que sauce. I had the beef and the sauce was great. We picked up a sauce to take home. A little surprising note was the salad bar--it wasn't anything spectacular but nice... More

This place has some very tasty BBQ. My wife and I both had the Sampler Platter and it was delicious. Tender meat, nice smoky flavor. The only drawback is the restaurant does not serve alcohol but otherwise it had great food, good service and decent prices.
