Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que

Perfect For:Big Groups


217 Congress Ave, Austin
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

You’re with a large-ish group, you want “real barbecue,” and you don’t want to drive hours or wait in long lines. Cooper’s is a Texas Hill Country BBQ legend that opened a downtown Austin location exactly for situations like this. The setup here involves a fast-moving line where you pick out your favorites from the beef, pork, and chicken options on display. Get a healthy portion of brisket, with some burnt ends. You don’t really need to spend much time on the sides. Focus on what you came for - the meat sweats.

The Ranch review image

There aren't a lot of places in Austin that have bottle service, so if you're looking for that kind of night, head to The Ranch on West 6th.

Holy Roller review image

Holy Roller is where to go for a fun brunch or post-going out meal downtown. Get the trash fries.
