The meat was not warm. The rib appeared and tasted like it was cooked several days before. The brisket was not trimmed as well as I am accustomed too.

I recognized the name from eating at Coopers in Llano so we stopped in for some good bbq. Sadly disappointing to say the least. The ribs were dry and the brisket was solid fat. Should have looked at the ratings on TA and chosen better.

I used to look forward to driving through Junction to stop at Cooper's. They have really gone downhill. Their jalapeño sausage was the best, their meats were fresh smoked, you could smell and see the smoke for miles. I stopped on my last vacation to...More

Having eaten at the original Cooper's as well as the Junction local, I looked forward to sharing it with friends. We entered on lunch on a drizzly Friday. The meats in the 3 3case looked enticing. Not, were we fooled! The chicken was dry. The...More

A local family owned operation in a good location. Tasty, tender meats. Limited choice of side items, but they were good too as long as the only thing green you want on your plate is pickles. The jalapeño sausage is very good.

The staff is poorly trained, unable to follow instructions, or listen to an order. While the meat display in the case was presentable that is where it stopped. The food was less than average, the girl cutting the meats, as well as the girl wrapping...More
