Small place, great food!.
We love the Coop. They have great food at great prices. When we eat there, we usually order for take out, but have ate several times. It just depends. If you go in the summer, they have a patio table outside to eat at.
The Coop is such a lovely place. It's a small little place, but the food is great. The staff is very nice. It's been in the South St Paul community for the past over 40 years!
Take Out Place - Best Fried Chicken.
This is a little neighborhood joint that mainly caters to take out customers. There are a couple booths in the front, but the atmosphere is definitely not ideal for eat in customers. You'll find yourself staring at hordes of take out customers waiting for the goods. My husband and I both got the combo meal which had fried chicken and ribs. I absolutely fell all over the chicken. It is some of the best fried chicken I've ever had. I did not like the ribs though. I can't put my finger on what I didn't like, I wasn't happy with the sauce. My husband enjoyed his ribs quite a bit though and I'm known to be a picky eater but I do love me some ribs. I tend to go for sweet and spicy sauces and I think the sauce they use is totally different from that. But still I highly recommend the chicken and would definitely go back for that. The sides are just so-so, nothing to write home about. Calling ahead for your order is rather wise too because the wait can be long if you order at the register.
