Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que is honored to be the best of the best in the barbecue business and home of the original World Famous "Big Chop."
The Wootan Family has provided its World Famous Pit Barbecue to hundreds of thousands of hungry diners over the years at its family-owned and operated restaurant. Now you can get a taste of Texas Hill Country BBQ that restaurant reviewers have raved about, and remember It's All About The Meat.
Cooper's famous Old Time Pit Bar-b-que looks forward to it's first Austin location at 217 Congress, opening in the fall of 2014.
Celebrating the history of Congress Avenue in the early 20th century, Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-b-que will bring great food, live music and local flare to downtown Austin.
The building: 217-221 Congress has an incredible history we can't wait to bring alive in the renovated space. The 200 block of Congress has been the home to several pubs, saloons, cafes and restaurants over the years including the Bradshaw Saloon, Pearlhouse Saloon, Tradewinds Lounge, The Dew Drop, Avenue Cafe, Las Manitas and Copa Lounge. Across the street was home to the International and Great Northern Rail Road Depot, built in 1888. The upstairs space at 217 was once the Travis Hotel, rumored to have been a cat house in years past! We plan to restore the facade to its original state to honor the location's eclectic history.
Cooper's will feature a live music stage, a rooftop garden, and a beautiful oak-shaded back patio.
