I enjoyed the turkey and wish it was all I ordered.. The brisket and pork ribs were full of fat.. The potato salad was not very good.. If I went here again I would just order the turkey and load up on the free beans which are excellent.. The biggest letdown was the BBQ sauce.. Very runny and not very... More

This was a fun place to eat while visiting family in the DFW area. They recommended it for a nice outing. Ordering was a bit different for this Eastcoast gal so good thing I came to LSD (Look, See, Decide) with some veterans. There is a grilling table once you enter filled with all sorts of cuts of meats: prime... More

We love Cooper's! Great food! Give it a try when you come to Fort Worth Stockyards! We come down for the Red Steagall Cowboy Gathering and try to make it to Cooper's to eat.

Across the street from Billy Bob's ans short walk from stockyards. Good brisket and sirloin. Disappointed that prime rib is only served on weekends

We went for the first time for a semi private event on a Friday night. Honestly had no idea that we would need to stand outside and wait to get in. Once we got inside the door, we realized there was one grill/pit open. We saw a board with the menu of meats. We ordered the same thing and took... More

Texas barbecue is all about turning a cheap cut such as brisket into a tender peace of wonder through a slow smoking process. Cooper's delivers that and more in a laid back self service environment, perfect to spend some time with the family or groups of friends. Price are adequate if you consider the possibility of getting a family pack... More

This is the type of BBQ place which serves you your brisket wrapped in paper, and sells it by weight. I asked for half a pound, and actually got 0.7 lbs. A lot of that was fat. They cut it, but don't slice it for you. I got a cup of macaroni and cheese on the side, which was good,... More

The beed ribs!!! Cooked to perfection, great flavor, fall off the bone tender and big too! I don't know the cut of the beef rib or where to purchase, but it is larger than i see anywhere in markets. Friendly people, free beans and delicious beef, love it!
