Laird's is in a house in on one of the main streets in Llano. We've been to Cooper's which is a much larger operation, has good food, but isn't as personal. Laird's is personal. Perhaps not much to look at, it is clean, and the food delicious. I had a rib plate with traditional sides of coleslaw and beans. Meaty,... More

Good brisket tender full of flavor. Potato salad sides are very good as well. We'll worth a try. Nice family place.

We stopped at Laird's on our way to Austin. This is a quaint little place with good food and very casual atmosphere. There were customers eating on the patio and several inside. We had the chopped beef sandwich and the beef and sausage sandwich. Both were very tasty. Not too much smoke and NOT smothered in sauce. Even though the... More

This is a converted house that has two rooms dedicated to the restaurant. The sliced beef was dry and overcooked. The potato salad, beans, and sauce were good. The business has been for sale for a few years now. Not my favorite but it will do as an occasional change.

In a recent stay in Llano we were looking for a good place to get a steak and our hosts suggested we go to Laird's. We had a great meal and good conversation with some of the other patrons. We were so full but couldn't resist getting pecan pie to go. It was so good for a midnight snack.

I love eating BBQ. Ordered my meal. Sliced sandwich and 2 pork ribs. Got distracted in conversation and when I turned to pay for my order, the lady pulled my ribs from the microwave. Well that's not cool considering the pit smoking outside. She had to heat them up. Then she says that will be $16.27. I almost fell over.... More

My fiance and I were craving bbq while visiting hill country. On our way back from Enchanted Rock, we found this little bbq place right off the road. We thought it was a good place to stop and eat, then hop back along our way. This place has no flare and the pickens are simple. The side items are either... More

Cute little hole in the wall bbq joint. The brisket sandwich is to die for! Loved the potatoe salad as well. :) the bbq sauce isn't too sweet or too tangy, it's just right. It was worth not standing in line at Coopers.

A couple friends and I stopped at Laird's recently for lunch because the line was too long at Cooper's. We really wanted some top notch BBQ and hoped this would do it. The restaurant is in a house that has been partially converted. With the line through the middle it was a bit confusing at first. There only seemed to... More

Just OK but there's such a selection of great Barbecue in Llano so I'd probably go to Coopers and pick what I want.
