We paid $37 for a 1-meat plate & a 2-meat plate, 1 drink and a cobbler. Never got free beans & I looked for them. The sides on our plates were a small serving & there wasn't much meat, which surprised me for the price. The meat was tough and everything but the cobbler just wasn't that good. The blackberry...

This restaurant is quite different. You order your BBQ outside at the 'pit'. They wrap it in brown paper and you take it inside. There you can add deserts, drinks and pay for all of it. They don't give you plates, but rather sheets of white paper that appear to have a waxed surface. The beans are self service near... More

After fishing all day, we stopped into Cooper's on the way back to Burnet. There are a lot of BBQ restaurants in the hill country, but Coopers is legendary. First time there. We went on a Thursday evening, so the crowd was light, but I hear that they get crazy busy at times. I liked that you could see all... More

We are from Wisconsin where you cannot find anything like this nearby. There were 6 of us, & we had everything, sausage, brisket, ribs, chicken, Mac & cheese, Cole slaw, potatoe salad, cobbler & (free) beans. For the 6 of us w/ drinks, averaged $10/person and we had leftovers. So it seems pricey but only a little more than what... More

Brisket meat is very salty, bark is so salty it is inedible. Beans were tasty - great that they are free with meal.

This restaurant is not much to look at from the outside, but please don't let that fool you. Before you enter the restaurant, you pick the types of meat you want, that done you go inside where your meat is cut, and where you can order sides and drinks. Your meat is served on freezer paper and seating is at... More

I'm a fan of sweeter BBQ,, the sauce is more of a vinegar bass. The meat is expensive/lb. but it is nice to choose and watch them them cut your meat. The potato salad was good and the complimentary bean soup was tasty.

By chance to saw this place. There were people out the door, all the way down the front and all the way down the side. So, we figured it must a good. We got in the long line, stood and waited. Near the entrance we picked out our meats. We picked brisket and ribs. We were charged by the pound.... More

You get to choose from various meats from the pit. We tried the beef brisket and pork BBQ. It was all delicious.

The food here is extremely good. The idea that you get what you order right there off the pit is pure genius. Plenty of room to eat and you will leave full, Thanksgiving full! For my first time there, I was amazed.
