Yippee! Cooper’s BBQ is coming to Downtown Austin. They aren’t totally open yet, but the lounge area upstairs is having a soft opening and serving bar food and drinks. I tried the Slider Trio and the baked potato and all was wonderful. When they do open (hopefully soon), they will have a serving line where you make your selections right off the grill. The restaurant is a combination of two old buildings and in addition to the lounge upstairs, they will have large indoor and outdoor seating areas downstairs. I am anxiously awaiting the grand opening so we can have another excellent BBQ joint in Austin.
