My husband and I went for lunch. We had never been, but heard good things so wanted to try it. We are traveling with our dog so I went in to check things out and upon entering I was greeted and asked what I would like to order. Once I shared it was the first time I had been the... More

Dallas Fort Worth has a lot of BBQ joints and many of them are really good. I know recommending the best Que is like talking about religion, but Coopers seems to make just about everyone happy. It's a nice laid back place that can serve huge groups if needed, but they also just make really good BBQ. They follow Hill... More

Pleasantly surprised with various meat options. All were incredibly tasty. Once you order the meat, the line to register is like your old high school lunch line. A little different for me, but rolled with it. Employees were helpful, not overly friendly...but effective and experienced Tapped Beer was serving in a FROSTY glad that immediately formed ice in my beer.... More

We spent the day at the Stockyards and decided to have some barbecue for dinner. The ribs work not very tender and not a lot of meat. The brisket was so so-so and the chicken was probably the best. Corn was not sweet the barbecue sauce was probably the worst sauce I've ever tried. This place is over overpriced and... More

This place is usually really good. But on my last visit the brisket and beef ribs were extremely fatty. But like I said normally you can't go wrong with Cooper's. Great BBQ, mac and cheese, and good tea.

First time I had the opportunity to enjoy best BBQ in long time. Everything tasted delicious and it was definitely worth the time and money to go there than a fancy restaurant. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family to come and enjoy good food. Will come back for more.

We had 8 of us to eat dinner. Every other place had a long wait and was quite expensive. I was excited to get the ribeye special but they ran out. Didn't matter. We ordered the family pack of brisket and sausage. It comes with 2 sides. We had the potato salad and the cole slaw. We also ordered the... More

We were in Fort Worth Stockyards and asked about a place for dinner. The person highly recommended Cooper's Pit Bar-B-Que, just across the street from the Stockyards, beyond Billy Bob's. You choose your meat from the very large BBQ at the beginning, get it weighed, and then go down a cafeteria style line to get the rest of your dinner.... More

We were not disappointed clean simple BBQ smoked right cooked tender. The beans are delicious. The hot links moist and full of flavor. My wife the copped beef sandwich. She is not a real fan but actually liked her lunch. Very close to stockyards. We walked over. If in the area come for simple smoked BBQ
