We usually get take-out from Coops, but this time we ate there. Coops BBQ is excellent BBQ with generous portions. The only reason I’m not giving a 5 star is because the seating is so limited due to it being TINY. And I have to...More

I bet you didn't know that Coop's is the national tamale champion in San Diego. Oh yes, Coop's creativity for a smoked tamale was ingenius. Unfortunately, you cannot purchase tamales at the restaurant. Especially prepared for festivals only. Coop's is a dive-in, with 3 basic...More

The level of barbecue produced in this dive off-the-beaten path near San Diego makes an hours-long road trip worthwhile. To say it is mouth-watering describes only part of the story. It is eye-watering, and tongue-watering, ear-watering...what have you. All of the senses get involved here....More
