Being the BBQ aficionado we are, Cooper's could possibly be MECCA! We stumbled upon this rustic gem & have dreamed of going back to Llano since. The meat was juicy, perfectly dry rubbed, not fatty, just sheer perfection!

Cooper's is a favorite for many locals, however, their prices seem to be sky rocketing. If you are not a big eater or have a way to take some home you are going to waste a lot of meat. The ribeyes are good and large and they will not let you cut one in half. So I feel $61 is a bit high for two steak dinners with beans, 1 cobbler and 2 ice teas. The BBQ is great, they offer thick Pork Chops, Brisket, or ribs. Slaw and potato salads are extra, however, beans come with the meal. I'll probably return, since it is a Texas Icon, but I'll either split with my wife or have a way to take some home.

I took my mother to the hill country and she really enjoyed Coopers. The brisket was excellent. The sausage was okay. The sides (potato salad, cole slaw.) were good. Try the pecan pie; it is super!

ordered a rib eye medium rare and it was perfectly cooked but the pepper in the seasoning was OVERPOWERING! Literally had to rinse it off in order to eat it. Paid $21.00 and wished I hadn't. The baked potato was giant and inedible. It was discolored with whatever seasoning they added to the potato before baking and it ruined the flavor. Threw it in the trash. Never ever going back.

Cooper's in Llano is an experience! The food is great. Picking it from the grill is fun. The sides are good. I had the best black berry cobbler on Saturday that I've had in a long time. The sweet tea is the best I've ever had. The downside is that on the weekend it is really busy and the line is long. The wait is worth it but know beforehand that if you are going on a Saturday or Sunday duringthe noon hour you will have to wait.
