Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar B Q has been around for quite some time however not in New Braunfels. This location is on a by pass around New Braunsfel Hgy 337. They also have internet ordering on their web site. We entered the restaurant and the first thing to do is pick out your meat or meats where then will take and weigh for the total price. Up can add sides at the counter where you are getting the meats weighted. However today they had a special which was advertised as pork chop and baked potato for $10.99. I noticed pieces of pork lying on the grill. They appeared to have been cut from a pork loin and were boneless. I ordered the special and what was I served, a piece of the boneless loin and not a true pork chop. The piece was about 1 ½ to 2 inches think and dipped in their sauce. The piece was very good as was the baked potatoes. Others in the party had the “pork chop” as well and beef brisket and ribs. As long as this place has been in business I know they know the difference between a boneless piece of pork loin and a true pork chop. They can call it what they want however a true pork chop is not a piece of boneless pork loin. In spite of their confusion the meat was good. I know someone will now comment that it is me that is incorrect and that the cut was from a loin that had been boned. Give me a break friend as I was a butcher and cut and sold meat for years. You can pick up trimmings and bread at the bar. Trimmings include a bowl of beans however I was the only one in the party who opted for the bowl of beans. Onions and pickles are also on the condiment counter. By the way, those beans were included at no additional cost. There are loaves of bread scattered around and if you desire some bread help yourself. You eat at picnic type tables either indoors or outdoors depending upon the weather. You dispense your own drinks. AND you clean your table and toss your own trash. There are no waiters to assist you. So the bottom line is that you pay full price and you do part of the work to get your food. Kind of like checking yourself out at the grocery store and bagging your own groceries. Also the prices are somewhat on the high side especially for a small community such as this town.Their internet prices were reasonable however shipping is expensive. Order form is available in the store.
