For an amazing BBQ experience, you have to visit Coop’s West Texas BBQ in Lemon Grove! Trust us – it’s worth the drive!
The shop itself is small so be prepared to wait in line especially if it’s near lunch or dinner time. But all great things take time and Coop’s BBQ is no exception. The storefront definitely has a hole-in-the-wall feel…which is a nice change if you’re used to going to Phil’s. You definitely get the sense that you’re supporting a local San Diego institution!
You can order their meats on sandwiches, on a plate with sides, or just the meat by itself! Can’t decide what to get? Try the sampler platter! We recommend getting either the pulled pork sandwich or the pork ribs. The meat is tender, smoky, and topped with some of the best BBQ sauce we’ve ever had! For the sides, we recommend the mac ‘n’ cheese, cornbread, and red beans and rice.
For an authentic BBQ experience that’s a little off the beaten path, visit one of San Diego’s hidden gems, Coop’s West Texas BBQ!
