“Best Q west of Texas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2014

Juicy, fall off the bone bbq ribs, brisket as tender as you can get with that wonderful smokey flavour and smoked pink ring makes this the real deal.
Super red beans and rice and friendly staff make this the best damn Q west of Texas.

“One of the best.....ever.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Coops is by far one of the best BBQ joints in town. It serves authentic BBQ and delicious side dishes without the glitz of places like Phil's. As one who went to college in West Texas, I've had my share of amazing down-home BBQ....this is better. The meat is fresh and smoked fresh daily. I know this as a fact as we live up the hill from Coops and the smoke from the smokers wafts into our house!! Take the time to try this place...you'll become a regular.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food here is really delicious for Lemon Grove however it's pricey. The average cost of a plate is about $15...I ordered the rib plate and also tried their tri-tip. Their portions are okay, it would be nice if they gave you just a little more but I guess it's the cost of running a business.

“Brilliant bbq restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

I found out about this place via the Washington Post. Thought I have to try it when I come to San Diego. I was not disappointed, the food is smoked and cooked to perfection, the staff are very friendly, in fact the owner came over and chatter to us as they could not believe that a Brit and a Saffa could have found their place.

There is nothing fancy about this place and it is not pretending to be fancy, it is just good soul food. The prices are good, the food is good and the staff are friendly, what more could you ask for?
