Always good BBQ at reasonable prices. Relaxed atmosphere with decent, though not the largest, portions. Brisket preferred over their sausage.

I've been to Schoepf's multiple times. They probably have the best atmosphere compared to the other bbq places in and around town but the food is just so so. There is nothing spectacular about any of their sides or meat.

I went hear looking for some good ribs but I found average. The green beans were so good I got some for my lunch the next day. The eating area and restrooms are kept very clean. Staff is very friendly.

A former top 5 place, Schoepfs seems to have let off the gas the last few years. The brisket is moist but has no smoke flavor. Half chicken is great if not dry. There is a fabulous "secret" rib sauce but they're always out when I visit. On the plus side, the cheesy potatoes can't be beat and they've added... More

The food was cut in 1/2 and prices risen on already expensive bbq and watching someone dripping with sweat cutting your food makes you wanna barf but other than that the potato salad is excellent and the veggie salad even though I don't eat bell peppers it was still delicious salsa isn't bad too that is all for now ty

Schoepf's is always a great meal. I have been to several events where they catered. They do a nice job, and the food is delicious. At the restaurant you get exactly what you want. The servers are very friendly and accommodating. Recently, we bought several pounds of pork with the sauce on the side. The meat alone was so flavorful... More

The Pork Chop had over 1 inch of Fat! I cut off more than a 1" x 6" line of fat. I asked the manager about it, but he said I should have chosen more carefully when I ordered.

We were in town for a convention and wanted a BBQ restaurant where we could sit down. A beekeeper at our convention recommended this place as he used to live in Belton. Well, my large plate of Quail (3 pieces) was wonderful as was the potato salad. My husband got the ribs and he polished them off along with the... More

Nice,clean, family environment. BBQ is good, however, be prepared to pay $10.00 a plate. Good pie for extra of course!
