THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL!!!THE FOOD IS PHENOMENAL!!! My only complaint was that the food (albeit delicious) was warm and not hot, especially the side items. Such a great place, though!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you like Texas BBQ...RUNIf you like Texas BBQ...RUN do not walk to Hill Country. I have been here abotu a dozen times and am never disappointed. I have tried alomost everything, but my two favorites are The Short Rib (TRUST ME, you can't even finish one!!) and the Moist Brisket... there is none better!!!) The MAC & ChEEZE could only be made better if the added Bacon. Definitely on my A list!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter recovering from theAfter recovering from the oddity of not having plates, my dinner guests and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the food.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPork ribs were really juicyPork ribs were really juicy and also loved the brisket. Relaxing casual atmosphere at lunch.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for a birthday celebrationWent for a birthday celebration for someone who loves barbecue. It was great.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHill Country's food is superHill Country's food is super but the Barbecue portions are so enormous that we have to vote for a special occasion. No service to speak of: food is orderd at a counter in this share-what-you-can menu of beef, pork, chicken, ribs, sausage piled on brown paper sheets, and you can carry it back to the table yourself. Sides are fresh and delicious, all meat is excellent quality, just the quantity is overwhelming. Will definitely be back with a hungry group next time... Also late night live music downstairs, fun, but you'll be too full to dance...4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great however theFood was great however the beef ribs were very disappointing! Weighing the ribs does not account for the lack of meet on them. That makes is not worth to get the ribs! Better quality and quantity of meet on the bones at Dallas BBQ!The live Karaoke was lots of fun! Just a bit to loud but fun!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMuch better than the realMuch better than the real thing in Texas' Hill Country, i.e. Austin and surrounding vicinity. Pork (ribs, chops, and belly), beef (ribs,
shoulder or roast beef and prime rib), chicken and brisket served moist or lean (get the "moist") are outstanding as are the sides.
Desserts, especially the Blue Bell ice creams are not to be believed and you may not have room for them anyway. Huge beer, bourbon and tequila selection along with great mixed drinks and a 2-for-1 special on Tuesday nights. A great place with great food and even has live music after 9 PM.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, real TexasFantastic food, real Texas BBQ. Great sides and cocktails too.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than its Texas counterpartsI've been to Austin, the actual epicenter of Hill Country in Texas, and at a number of their best pit barbecue restaurants...drum roll...Hill Country in NYC surpasses those places! Hill Country on 26th Street does them all one, two, even three times better with terrific pit barbecue meats; daily specials and incredible desserts that are not to be missed; 2-for-1 cocktails on Tuesdays along with a barbecued whole hog; Wednesday's is mouth-watering chicken wings; Thursday's and weekend nights offer the creme de la creme, pork belly with a chili rub. Often overlooked are slices of prime rib and pork chops. You absolutely do NOT have to order by weight; ordering by slices or by the piece is perfectly acceptable and even preferable.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brisket is awesome!! IThe brisket is awesome!! I could eat it all day. Love the environment and the quality of the food. Delicious!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome! Great no AmazingAwesome! Great no Amazing BBQ. Enjoy everything about this place from the food to service. I'll definitely visit back soon.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything that we ate wasEverything that we ate was amazing. Wait for the meat line to dwindle by ordering drinks at the table first. Pay with your server for expedited exit. Ribs, brisket and chicken were all cooked to perfection. The hardest decision may be which sides. Over order and take it home.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMoist brisket RocksMoist brisket is best I've ever had... Fantastic smoke aroma in the room mirrors the smoke in the brisket and chicken. Ribs were fine but pork spare ribs were still a bit fatty and not as fully rendered as better ones in Texas... Moist brisket is a MUST for any who like BBQ3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great experience;Always a great experience; also they were very accommodating as we switched our group size several times (the night of our dinner). Lastly, always what's on special -- usually worth trying.12/6/2012 12:00:00 AM
