Gillette is just a stopover for us... But we always try to skip the chain restaurants when traveling and pick a local one to support. Besides looking at Yelp, I googled unique restaurants and also looked at trip advisor, and The Coop kept coming up. Even though there were tons of restaurant choices, we picked here and were so glad we did! Terrific service, covered parking and delicious food! The Half Chicken meal was so good and the sides are very generous portions. The charro beans and the guacamole were the best that these two Texans have had in a long time. We also had the Buffadilla for an appetizer, and it was delicious and could have easily been a meal. If we eat out again before leaving town... I will happily come back here! P. S The Raspberry tea was also yum!

The Coop was recommended to us after our coal mine tour and we were not disappointed! We both had the empanadas, served with black beans and rice. Delicious food and great service by Riley.

Food was wonderful. Had rotisserie tacos and a half bird. No issues at all. Both of us enjoyed it thoroughly. Waitress Sonia was a delight - very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable of gluten free precautions.

We have been traveling cross country from Missouri, we saw that The Coop was one of the best rated close to where we were and it was my son's birthday we wanted one more meal together before he headed off in a different direction. This has been our favorite meal so far on our trip! We even took some of our meal home so we could try two of their delicious cakes!

This is probably the worse experience I have ever had placing an order to go. I understanding being busy but you would think if you have to wait 40 minutes on an order you placed to go someone would at least have the courtesy to check on you or let you know there is a hold up. I think they ran out of chickens... and had to go find one, feather it, and then cook it... All joking aside, I watched people sit down, order, enjoy their whole meal, place an order to go then get that order, pay and leave.As I sit here writing this it is been 40 minutes and I still wait... just sad really; on a positive note I am probably getting everything from scratch!

Great food, friendly service and very fast! Love the peppers with any dish.

The food was really good and not too expensive. I really liked the 2 sauces that came with my chicken empanadas, both were delicious. And they give you plenty of food for the money.


What a pleasant surprise. Everything was freshly made and service was excellent. We had a cup of chicken tortilla soup and it was a meal in itself. This was followed by chicken tacos that were loaded with freshly roasted chicken with two outstanding salsas on the side. We were so full that we took a slice of Tres Leches cake back to our motel for dinner.


Finally went and tried it for myself after hearing many reviews about how amazing it was. Wasn't impressed. Haven't recommend it to anyone since my visit. Thought the portions were small for the price. Left hungry.

Our family loves this place. The rotisserie tacos and empanadas are the best. Staff is always attentive. Go with some time and enjoy the chicken pot pie. It is infertile.

Food too much on the spicy side. Had the Chicken Tortilla Soup and Empanadas. Flavor masked by spice.

Ordered the honey mild chicken strip and mac and cheese. All were delish! 1st time ordering and for two people was a decent price. We'll be back soon. The girls are really nice too.

The waitresses are very friendly and there very respectful and helpfully when you ask what good on the menu and the food is great. For example my mother in law had two gizzards that wasn't done we call over a waitress to let her there where two gizzards not done all the way and was friendly about it I love coop. Keep up the good work
