“Hello BBQ”
Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

Absolutely the best bbq joint in town. Love the brisket, love the chopped beef sandwich, love the links. Ribs are way too salty, leaving a metallic after taste. Beans with jalepenos are greateateat! Try it, you'll like it.

Reviewed February 27, 2012

The beef brisket and beef ribs were the best I ever tasted, and the best of the 3 places in and around New Braunfels.

“Pricey, but pretty good.”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

I was a bit taken aback when I got the bill at Coopers, but the barbecue was good. There are other barbecue places close by that I enjoy more, but there are a lot of diehard Coopers fans out there. By all means give it a try, and see if you're one of them!

“Meat Lovers Paradise!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Had a family get together and need a place to eat. Younger brother mentioned Cooper's since he loves barbecue so we went. If you like meat this is your place. When you enter there is a huge grill where you choose between sirloin steak, ribs, pork etc by the pound. The you go for the sides. Never have seen so much meat and it was great! Serve you on paper versus plate. Interesting concept and atmosphere. Not an elegant fine dining kind of place but great for families with kids. If I was a meat lover I would give it a 5.
