Inman's Barbecue, Llano, Texas
I am one of the first cusomers of this establishment, beginning some 40 years ago. it was good then and it is good now. If it is not to your taste, just remember thousands like it and eat there on a regular basis. If you want quanity and smoke go across the road, but rest assured there are plenty of people who return often.for real brisket and other specialities. EAT AT INMAN'S FOR THE REAL THING.
I wish I could agree with you but I can't solely on the basis that I have never been there. I have heard for many years that it is a takeout place only, I have tried to go there but the couple of times I went, the place was closed (Maybe just bad timing on my part). I have been to the "place across the road" several times and honestly, don't care for it that much no matter what Rick Perry says(that should be reason enough to avoid the place)
It is nice of you to give them a plug, but if they have been in business for 40 years perhaps they don't need one. Perhaps they are so confident and self assured that they don't need to do things like post their hours of operation, or their phone number on their website either.It makes one wonder if they really do want and/or need my business. The next time I am in the area, I for sure want to try them. Presumably, their BBQ is slow and low. I read in a local fellows book on Texas BBQ that Cooper's is not actually slow and low. (Some years back I was amused when one of the national food magazines had an article on slow and low Texas BBQ and the article was illustrated with a picture of Cooper's)
Perhaps as an acolyte of Inman's you couldl run by and tell them that there are people out here who want to find them but need more information.
