Great food from Koop’s is some of the best local food on Galveston Island!
Wow, this place is so freaking good and so far from “normal”! Yes, they serve mouthwatering BBQ but that is just the beginning. But whatever they are throwing down, I am picking up- and then stuffing in my mouth.
“Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”Harriet Van Horne
You can tell that the folks at Koop’s love this food they serve! Everything is made from scratch and you can’t beat the flavors. Not only will you have a huge selection of BBQ in various forms such as tacos, lasagna, sandwiches and more, but on certain days you can find crab and shrimp mac & cheese, chicken spaghetti, and whatever else comes out of the creative minds and talented cooks at Koop’s.
There are two things you need to know:
#1- If you are offered Bacon Jam- say YES!
#2- Come early because they sell out fast- EVERYDAY
Seriously, they do sell out of the day’s specials but they do allow you to call ahead. The best way to keep up with what is available for the day is to follow them on Facebook.
These folks are fun and they make great food. You can beat the local food scene and Koop’s is definitely a star on the island.
Koop’s is closed on Sundays and Mondays, and open from 11:00 am to 4:00pm Tuesday- Saturday. You won’t be disappointed when you put this local eatery on your list.
As I said, you can call ahead and place your order. The only thing better than their BBQ is eating it on the beach which is just a few blocks away.

Any of these restaurants above are kid-friendly if you are traveling with children. While there might not be a kid’s menu, there are definitely foods on the menu that kids love. Galveston Island is a very family friendly and kid friendly place, the food scene is no different. Miller’s does offer a children’s menu and my grands love the shrimp, mac & cheese, and calamari.
With the outdoor seating available, Koop’s is dog friendly. If you are traveling with children, all of the local eateries are kid friendly. If you are traveling and vacationing in Galveston, you will enjoy the food scene.
