Nothin to write home about

We had the ribs and sausage. Everything was good, but not spectacular. I like a BBQ place to have at least one thing that really stands out. This wasn't one of those places.

Very expensive for what you get, and the food was awful. I paid around $35 for my wife and I to eat there and all we got was a little styrofoam plate with some dry meat, bland beans, and mediocre potato salad.

I have been to another coopers in New Baunsfel and it was excellent. But not every Coopers is the same. The brisket was tender and the flavor was good. The smoke ring was very good too. I didn't have any sauce which adds to Coopers flavor. I am not a big pinto bean fan but when I found the BBQ... More

Dry overcooked chicken. Sides were limited. Wait staff were rude and seemed in a big hurry and no one was in line at the time. Not up to Cooper's standards that they have in their other locations. Will not stop again.

I visit whenever I pass through, being a sauce guy I was at first disappointed by the runny no flavor sauce but I found the meat is so good it doesn't need the sauce. I will continue to return when I'm in the area.

Brisket was so dry the sauce didn't even help it! What a disappointment. Sad to say our brisket and BBQ sauce had no flavor what so ever. The blackberry cobbler and ice cream was the saving grace for this meal! So if you still stop here after this review only order the cobbler and ice cream and keep on traveling... More

We frequently travel to the Cooper's old-time pit BBQ in Llano, TX and Fort Worth,TX. My favorite BBQ in the state. This is not the same restaurant. I did not eat here so I don't want to say anything negative about them, just pointing out this is a different group. The locals will point you to Lum's for BBQ, but... More

They must be hurting because the Pilot is taking their business. They nickel and dime you - trying to push the BBQ plate. Buy the meat and two sides instead because if you get the plate they charge you an extra $3.02. They try to push everything and charge $0.49 for tap water. If you question why you have to... More

I stop every time I'm in the area. Weather I'm eating in or taking home to my family. I was not a meat lover till I tried Coopers :-)
