Hello, just curious if anyone has ever eaten at the little Thai Food shack at Cooper's Landing and lived to tell about it. I have ridden by there a couple of times and was extremely hungry but was too intimidated to actually sample it. I was just wondering if someone has eaten there and if maybe it might be really tasty and missing something. Please let me know!!

Alright, that's one to nothing in favor of the Thai shack. I give you props for giving it a whirl!!

When the 3 brothers that are the Dalton Boys did the KATY in '02, and when passing through Coopers Landing we shared the thought "...does river pirates mean anything to you?" We did the KATY in April, the trail was bone dry and compacted and our average speed, (caused by the slow out of shape brother) was 10 mph.

I have been to Cooper's landing - got caught in a thunderstorm - had to wait inside a couple hours, then a woman voluntarily drove us to our car, bikes in tow. Had some chicken off the grill that was excellent (nibbled off my husbands plate cuz I was intimidated, also) - I don't remember the side orders, but I do remember it being really good. I don't even remember it being called Thai Food Shack. But there was a bird, and dogs, a guy there that carved tables and chairs out of wood ... Probably the same place? But we lived to tell! I think I might have been intimidated because their lifestyle is so different to ours in the city - but yes, the food is good!

Yes, by all means, eat the Thai at Cooper's Landing. It's sort of an institution in the area. It's great food - the owner also has a Thai restaurant in downtown Columbia now.
