I'm no stranger to the baked potato game. I've been around since before the loaded baked potatoes and twice-baked potatoes hit the menus of local eateries and I'm still taste testing today.

In my experience, there are two frontrunners in Austin when it comes to finding a great baked potato. In this article, I'll be reviewing these two options to help you determine which one is right for you!

The moment I stepped in, I knew I was in for a treat. The place smelled of smoked pit cooked barbecue, with an aroma that had my taste-buds screaming for more. The baked potato was served to perfection; fluffy and steaming hot on the inside, and well-crisped on the outside - exactly how I like it!

To top it off, the sides were equally as delicious. From the creamy coleslaw to the succulent mac & cheese, Cooper's Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que sure knows how to make each side dish special and unique.

It goes without saying that everything they offer is cooked with love and care. It's no wonder why they are known for having the best baked potato in Austin!
