#1 Place to go!

Fabulous food, friendly staff, my favorite place to eat! I go here at least twice a week and I've never had a bad meal. If you want great Texas BBQ, then this is where you need to go!

Stopped in for barbecue at Schoepf's with a big group, which was easily accommodated. The food was incredible (brisket and quail especially!) and the staff were great. The owner even came out to talk with us a bit about the history of the restaurant. Highly recommend when in the Temple area.

My husband and I went there for lunch the other day and we had high hopes for the place. I’ve heard a lot good things about the restaurant from people around town. Unfortunately we were both hugely disappointed. When we went in the front door, that isn’t very well marked and we were greeted by a somewhat friendly meat carver.... More

We stop in here about once a month. The food and service is always superb and the atmosphere is always enjoyable. The BBQ sauce is always warm and they we like.

I have found nothing that they offer not to be of good quality and taste. Now that they have upgraded the serving area it is even better. I like the quail, potato salad, and coleslaw. I drive from Copperas Cove just to eat there.

Schoepf's is a very good, local family-owned bbq spot. You enter the first room, where you pick out the meat you'd like (I had the smoked chicken), then you enter the second room to pick the sides, pay, and sit. The chicken was nearly perfect, with an outstanding, tangy sauce. I loved the sides, too (potato salad and cole slaw).... More

We really like the brisket and the chicken here at Schoeph's Old Time BBQ. Good sides like string beans, potatoe salad and BBQ sauce and served with choice of bread or cornbread.

Excellent food and service. Great stop for lunch. We all tried something different and all happy with choice. Also clean and we'll staffed.

We return here every holiday season. Venison sausage is my favorite but the brisket is perfection. Tried the quail (stuffed w jalapeño, wrapped in bacon), and it was yummy. Even the Mac & cheese was delish.

Small portions, diluted barbeque sauce, and bland vegetables. The only redemption was the peach cobbler.
