My favorite place to stop coming into and leaving Austin. Had the pork chop; perfectly done and moist. Big enough to feed 2 people. Added some fatty brisket and jalapeño sausage; every bite was heavenly. Usually get their potato salad (one of the best in Texas) but opted for jalapeño Mac n Cheese and was not disappointed. Cooper's is arguably the best Q outside of Austin metroplex.

Robert Payne has worked as a butcher in the past, and more recently for the Butter Krust bread bakery. His wife, Penny, was also in food service at a local school cafeteria.

One of those was Burnet County Barbeque…
