Cole’s BBQ has been named February’s Business of the Month by Fairfield Chamber of Commerce officials. Ben Cooper purchased the existing store in September 2016 from Mark and Irene Cole. Mark’s father, Monte, opened the barbecue joint more than 30 years ago. Cooper still uses the recipes – handwritten by Monte – for his side dishes and famous barbecue sauce.

The restaurant serves a typical barbecue menu with a few twists on old favorites.

“Our most popular dish right now is the brisket grilled cheese,” said Cooper.


FVFD battles grass fires

Four individuals helped extinguish one of two small grass fires near Cole's BBQ on FM 27 West over the weekend. Claye Pope, Bryce Howard, Sgt. Michael Douglas, and Sgt. Matt Hamilton – both Texas State Guard members of the 19th regiment 2nd BN – used whatever they had on hand to put out the fire. Pope said she used a towel to slap at the fire, while the two sergeants used their boots and Howard poured Gatorade on the flames. The two military men were on their way back to Dallas after lending a hand down south. Fairfield Volunteer Fire Department Engine 82 and Grass 86 responded, extinguishing the second small fire and establishing a fire line.
