Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que
Where we've featured it
There are lots of new names and techniques in the BBQ game, but Cooper’s is a true old-timey holdout. They now have a location in Austin, but we highly recommend the drive out to the original location in Llano, which hasn’t changed a bit since it opened in the early 60’s. The atmosphere is as authentic, no-BS as it gets, and more importantly, the barbecue is damn good. The variety of offerings (pork chop, sirloin steak, and chicken - along with the usual BBQ mainstays) is insane, but the sausage and brisket are our go-to’s, and their vinegar-heavy sauce is incredible.
