I stopped at Cooper's BBQ on my way to Alpine. The place is rather bare and full of stuffed animals along the walls. The portions are pretty large and the food is ok. Bare to the bone but good. Cobbler is also good (I had the blueberry with ice cream) but it is a pity they serve it in a... More

Stopped at this place on way to El Paso for business. You can see the smokers and wood so you think they might know what there doing. Wrong! Weak BBQ... Worst BBQ sauce I have had. Very watery and tomato tasting. But cobbler with soft serve was very good. Go somewhere else and then go for cobbler here for desert.

Stopped while traveling West on I10 to El Paso. The food was very good and the staff were friendly and helpful. But the prices at Cooper's are outrageous. We didn't buy plates (nothing less than 13.95) and beverages were ridiculously pricey. Two people eating with no drinks or sides equals a $30.05 tab. If that was lunch for three then... More

I was very disappointed with the brisket. Dry and not very flavorful. Go on the other side of I10' better place.

The food is horrible. The atmosphere is great. Convenient location just off the interstate. The food is absolutely horrible. If you want good BBQ while you are in Junction, then go to Lum's!!!

Born and raised Texan here...second time I have gone to Cooper's. First time was bloody awful. Second time many years later...still bad. The sausage was pretty gross...pork ribs were bad, and the brisket was not even "ok". The sides were DISGUSTING! Worst cole slaw I have ever had, and the potato salad was crap, too.

When travelling in west Texas, it is difficult to find a restaurant let alone a top notch BBQ place like Cooper's! We and Our hosts enjoyed the brisket and beans upon arrival. Then we enjoyed BBQ leftovers on quesadillas the next day after our kayak at the ranch on the Devil's River ... south of Ozona.

This is by far, the best BBQ I've ever had. I can not stand dry brisket and I have never had it here. The cobblers are wonderful as well.

The other reviewers must have been here on an off day. Our brisket was juicy and delicious. Cobbler was also very good. The decor was real Texas. As for seasoning real Texas BBQ has only salt and pepper on it.

If this is Texas BBQ then never again. The food was not good. I got the brisket it was dry & over cooked. The seasoning was nonexistent, it should of been bagged up for jerky. Even then it would of sucked. The baked beans were not baked beans at all. They were just cooked beans no flavor no seasoning. Then... More
