First let me say I'm no barbecue connoisseur. But I have ate at enough of them around our great state to know that not all of it is good. And friends, this one ain't good. Meat was greasy and mediocre in flavor at best. The beans were not good. And that's the only side that comes with your meal. No tater salad, no rolls. Although they did throw some cheap ole white bread loaves on the table after we had finished our meal. And I had to pay extra for the bland blackberry cobbler. For $16 I got a longneck Budlite, half a chicken, a styrofoam bowl of beans and blackberry cobbler. I would have paid over $20 if I had added a serving of tater salad. The sauce is so watered down it tastes like water. You can see through it in the cup. The flavor of the chicken was okay but the texture was like it had been pre boiled. I was scraping the bottom of the bucket to get a bowl of the self serve beans. The table set up was pedestrian. In the heat waiting in line outside to get your meat, then a slow line inside to get anything else then get to your table adds insult to injury. It seems to be a popular place there and is the closest barbecue place to our lease but I will eat at DQ before I eat there again.

That place started going downhill the day Mr. Cooper sold it back in the 80's. I must have eaten there 100 times back in the day. Used to be excellent, now it's completely average.

I think most people stop there because of the ambiance. It was unique.

Aren't there still several other BBQ joints in Llano?

Cooper's in Junction is so-so also. Lum's, up the street towards town, beats them by a mile.

I live midway between the Swinging Door at Pecan Grove and Dozers in Fulshear. I got burned out on barbecue joints when I moved out here.

Cooper's thick pork chop, jalapeno sausage and rib-eye (when available) is about all I'll eat there. The brisket is hit or miss depending on the day. Their sauce is very old school and is a dipping sauce (also their mopping sauce), not your everyday thick & sweet BBQ sauce that so many people think of at a BBQ joint.

I prefer Inman's (1/4 mile west on north side of 29) Country Kitchen for brisket & turkey sausage. I usually stop in my Inman's and get a link of turkey sausage and a loaf of homemade bread any time I am passing thru. I have heard good things about Laird's south of the square but I haven't had a chance to try it out.

Thanx, we will give them a try.

Only things worth eating at Coopers are the pork chop and the pecan cobbler, which is the best pecan cobbler I have ever had.

Brisket, ribs, and sausage are mediocre at best.

There's a Cooper's in MASON, right next door to the Lowe's Supermarket, on 87 South, towards F'burg. Definitely worth a try the next time you pass through. I, too, have given on the Llano and Junction locations.
