Patio was great

The patio was just what I needed to break up the day. After that it is average at best. Sausage was very good. Friendly folks but too expensive.

With 99% of my executor duties for my deceased mother in Lake SpringMO completed, my wife & I are returning to our home in El PasoTX; this long haul can only be done is adequately nourished, a task no ordinary eatery can fulfill.

I have eaten here for 18 years. It is excellent BBQ. Ribs, sausage and brisket are great and it is convenient. The best Coopers is the original at Llano where the bean are unlimited! (Here you have to pay for each order of beans). Also try the blackberry cobbler with ice cream. Then time for a nap.

Unfriendly staff, limited side choices, stingy portions. We even asked about them adding another side such as a hot vegetable.The manager lady snapped at us and said we are not changing anything. The most disturbing sight was watching a worker scrape the foil, dessert pan Numerous times.This happened in the serving line. The meat is luke warm when they put... More

Worst BBQ I have ever had in Texas. I'm a native Texan and love BBQ. LUMS is by far better. Coopers was fat and nasty. Arrogant staff. Horrible.

We were very disappointed in our visit to Cooper's. A small plate of food was 12-15 bucks depending on one meat or two. The brisket and sausage we tried were a little on the dry side and their original BBQ sauce was a thin red liquid that seemed to be mostly vinegar.

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
