This restaurant came highly recommended by the clerk at the hotel. It was just a short drive away from our hotel. The food was really good and the portions was plenty for my family of 4. We had plenty of leftovers. I did not like the fact that they didn't provide any plates, only parchment paper. Really?? I can't eat off of parchment paper, especially when staying in a hotel.

Have eaten here several times and taken "to go" for from 2 to 25 people. Quality is always very good and consistent. Sides and sauce good.

We stopped in the New Braunfels Cooper's because we had liked the BBQ at the place in Llano. This place was a bit fancier but the food was very yummy. We had pork ribs and brisket and really enjoyed it. Would go back in a minute.

This place is a must visit when I return again. Very different type of place. The beans are soooo good and the BBQ sauce is just as good. I am not sure what meat I liked the best, brisket, ribs, pork chops, or the peach cobbler. If you leave hungry, something is wrong. Environment encourages people to talk to new people, not just their own group. Thumbs up all around.

I have been hearing about Cooper's for years and how great it is supposed to be, but both my husband and I thought it was average at best. I had the chopped beef sandwich and it was nothing special. I also had the jalapeno sausage, and again, nothing great. My husband and son both tried the brisket and my husband said it was dry. My husband had the pork ribs and said they were okay, although I thought they were seasoned well. I also wasn't wild about their sauce. It's a runny sauce that is quite vinegary. I actually like vinegar sauces, but this had too much vinegar, even for me. We won't be stopping at Cooper's again. It's just nothing to get excited about.
