Great ribs! Too much food! Service was great and the atmosphere is easy going. My whole family enjoyed the experience. I have not been since my college days but they have upgraded and added an outdoor area. Very nice!

There’s no other place with ribs as tasty as Cooter Brown’s Rib Shack! The staff is fantastic and friendly and the atmosphere is great. I don’t think you’d be disappointed is anything you ordered, but try the ribs 🙂

They have the best ribs in the state for a reason. If you have never been to Cooter’s you must go. Also try the Cooter’s Cobb as a side BBQ nachos are another good item to get as an appatezier

If you ever travel through NE Alabama, Cooters is a place to stop if you love ribs. Either dry or wet, they hit the spot. An excellent place to stop for lunch or dinner.
