What else is there to say? Was not disappointed. It does not have the charm of Cooper's in Llano. I like being able to select fresh straight from the pit. This is a nice place though, close to the interstate. I am not at all...More

I think there are now five Cooper's. This one has been here for years but the only one that cooks the meat long prior to putting it in steam trays. The other places have you go right by the pit and pick your meat. This...More

Probably the worst BBQ I've ever eaten, the meat was tough and the sauce tasted like vinegar. Restaurant looks very inviting driving up, and is very clean and the service good, but the main venue... "the meat" just doesn't cut it. My recommendation is to...More

Stopped in at this place on the way home from a camping trip. The food looked good and the place was very clean. I had the chopped BBQ sandwich, my dad had a combo plate with sliced brisket and sausage, and my husband had the...More

Okay so I read some of the other reviews. I can't complain about the brisket at all. It was SINGLEHANDEDLY the BEST brisket I've ever had. The sauce was okay, not bad just different. We got the brisket by the pound at $14.99/lb. It was...More

We decided to try Cooper's BBQ on Junction while passing through. We've been to the original in Llano numerous times. We're glad to say Junction stood up to the test and everything was great. We had brisket and turkey plates w/Cole slaw, potato salad and...More

We did eat at Coopers twice over the weekend so it wasn't that bad. But in both Junction and Mason the beef was loaded with fat. I'm picky on sauce flavor and theirs barely makes the grade. Their better than the franchises around but just...More
