I love dives. BBQ at a gas station is a good thing. When they charge north of $10 for a sandwich and 2 sides they owe you a little effort. Good smoke on the chopped brisket and sausage sandwich - sauce nothing to write home about. Coleslaw was fresh, but no dressing or flavor. Potato salad was a flavorless mash... More

Stopped by Coles on way from Houston to ft worth. I got the rib special which comes with a slab and 2 pints. This slab of ribs was easily the biggest slab I have ever got. I've lived in kc and eaten ribs in Memphis and other parts of the us and they were massive. Only downside was there was... More

You will notice that I live in Fairfield. Whenever I want a GOOD BBQ sandwich or plate, or an ole-fashioned hamburger, Cole's is the place I go. Founded by my dear friend the late Monte Cole years ago, Monte was the "real thing" in restaurant owners/managers, and insisted on nothing but the best. His family continues the concept or quality...

Great BBQ and some of the best peach cobbler around. Always ask for extra sauce and don't forget the condiments they have a lot to choose from. Checkout their canned goods too.

By far the best BBQ between Houston and Dallas. Stay away from tourist trap BBQ further south, and make the stop at the SHell station where COle's is located. Wonderful sliced and chopped sandwiches served up from scratch (not already boxed like further south) and superb atmosphere. Get it to go or eat in the shop, either way, it is... More

Traveling fro Houston to Dallas? This is mighty good BBQ--not too spicy, not too vinegary---just right. They are quick also- so you can get a couple of chopped beef to go in the time it takes to fill up your gas tank.

We always stopped at Cooper Farms on the way home from Denton to Houston. This time, we decided to stop on the way to Denton. We had never noticed Cole's before. Our family of 5 stopped in and each of us had a different plate. We were SO impressed. The chopped beef was perfection loaded onto a sweet fresh bun.... More
