“Texas at its Finest!”

Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que
Ranked #2 of 34 Restaurants in Llano
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2017 via mobile

This is the Texas Bbq experience. A line to order is tolerable or at least worth the wait. Cool water cooler dining another favorite scent from the old days. Easy to over do it for rookies, due to ordering by merely sight. “Uhh, well how much should we order?” A few ribs, brisket(a must) jalapeño sausage it adds up quick. Food and cash. Though, you’ll be glad when ya dig into your leftovers and hey it’s Cooper’s!
P.S. Cooper’s in Llano waaay different than Austin, Mason, Junction locations.

This is a time honored BBQ joint where you select your meat off the grill, have it cut inside and eat on long picnic tables.The staff are friendly and beans are free. Plenty of sides, but the main attraction is the meat. Smoky, smoky, smoky ! Brisket, prime rib, sirloin, pork steaks and ribs , sausage and chicken.Very moist with a deep flavor. Informal dress preferred as you are sitting next to big city travelers and ranchhands alike.

We stumbled across Coopers while passing through Llano. If you want an authentic BBQ joint then this place is it. Courteous staff and great BBQ served just like it should be. Great selection of meats and sides. And...amazing cobblers.

If you are a carnivore, this is the place for you. You order your meat outside and head inside to select sides such as mac and cheese and desserts. Bread slices and beans are complimentary. This was a nice stop on the way home from Austin.

I had the brisket, sausage and burnt ends with bacon jalapeno mac and cheese. It was great. Dip the burnt ends in the sauce to loosen them up a bit. Free side of beans. Great atmosphere. Llano is a wonderful little town.
