Great meats

I've heard so much about this place and wasn't disappointed. I really enjoyed the jalapeno and cheese sausage. For me, it was the best thing the place has to offer!

Or Son took us here while we were visiting. He said it would be worth the 45 minute drive. He was spot on! A minimal wait, but it is to be expected because of the lunch crowd on Sunday. 15-20 minutes, but well worth it. The Brisket, never had better, quail breast stuffed with jalapeño and wrapped in bacon, will... More

As a Texan BBQ is important. I hope that Schoefpf's gets back to the basics and does better than I was served. The brisket was not up the this Texans standards. However e peach cobbler was very good. The restaurant was clean and had lots of eminites to look at. For the price it was average, and for a small... More

Schoepf's has a reputation for serving excellent Q and thus we felt it rightfully deserved a visit. However, the place is doing so well that they appear to now charge for parking on evenings when they have concerts. Just trying to grab some quality Q, we were not amused when two high school-aged kids with no signage or even shirts... More

Great food and love the quail plate. The sides were very good and a lot to choose from. My favorite is the beans and potato salad.

We found this place on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out. We had the brisket, sausage, and turkey. It was all very delicious. We also had the macaroni and cheese, potatoes augrautin, and green beans. Everything was very good. The pecan pie was great also!

We hosted the Rehearsal Dinner for our Son's wedding at Schoepf's. We are not from the area, and a lot of the arrangements had to be done by phone and email. Ronnie and his staff did a great job preparing the menu we requested, allowing us access to the room to decorate, and then served us a delicious meal. It... More

My hubby raved about the food so much and he took me there for lunch/dinner. When you get there, you first order your food from the meat room ( its hot in there but the food is cold). I ordered the quail wrapped in bacon and stuffed with jalapeno pepper. Then you go to the next room and order your... More

I just don't get all the rave reviews. Their tea, pecan pie, jalapeno cornbread and potato salad were all good but the meats were tasteless. The brisket had no smoke flavor and tasted like roast. The chicken tasted like it was baked. This is the third time I've been and each time I was disappointed with the meats. I went... More
