Really like Coopers and how you can select this and that from the meats and create your own dinner. Each meat is weighed by the pound but we had steak, ribs, brisket and chicken and it was all delicious. Being right at cowtown is an...More

Glad we stopped here. Great way to pick out your meat. Loved the atmosphere. Very friendly. Only one bbq sauce option, would have like more.

Had a late lunch, good experience but not our style, certainly not a traditional meal, meat and limited vegetables, not as hygienic as it could be, more like a bunkhouse 100 years ago.

We stopped by here before going to Billy bob's. You order your meat from the grill while the chef is cooking it. You can have as much as you want, of what ever you want. But be warned it's weighed to give you a price....More

It was great to return to TX and have some great BBQ. Cooper's never disappoints and this time was no different. I had the brisket, a couple of ribs and jalapeno sausage. Everything was amazing and my co-worker was pleased with his meal as well....More

First time visit, and wasn't quite sure what to expect. As this is cafeteria-style service, there was a line, but with the entrance quite close to the pit queue line, we were crowded just getting in the door. We visited early on a Sunday evening,...More

There were only a few people in front of us ordering their meat and it still took about 10 minutes standing beside those BBQ pits. It was incredibly hot in that area. Then they have a sign to order by the pound. I'm not used...More
