About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Named "Best Barbecue in NY" by both New York Magazine and Time Out New York, "Top 10 Barbecue in the U.S." by the Wall Street Journal and "Best New Restaurants of the Year" by New York Magazine, Hill Country takes its "cue" from legendary Texas barbecue joint Kreuz Market and its distinctive dry-rub style. Hill Country's brisket, sausage, ribs and other meats are smoked low and slow over Texas post oak. The barbecue is served in butcher paper, counter-style by the pound, with traditional trimmings. Hill Country features two full bars with an extensive menu of long neck beers, tequila and bourbon, and a state-of-the-art sound system and stage for live music celebrating the thriving Austin music scene. Signature versions of classic southern sides and sweets include Longhorn Cheddar Mac & Cheese, Campfire Baked Beans with Burnt Ends, and the Original PB&J Cupcake. A marketplace full of Lone Star State favorites includes: Big Red Soda, Kreuz Market Sausages and more.

The food was disappointing. The selection of sides was minimalist... with an uninspired dessert menu. As a barbecue afficianado, I think the place is quite overrated. Doubt we’ll go there again.

Met up with a friend. Was going to sit at a table but saw my friend already at the bar. So I just joined him there. Staff was fine with it. Food... great as usual!

Hill Country BBQ Market is a good spot if you know what you're getting yourself into. The food is good, but the ordering process is a bit weird if you're not from the south I'm assuming. They carve the meat and wrap it in paper, then give you sides on the other side, then you go back to the table. The server is who takes your drink order and you pay after you finish eating. The server was nice, but the seating was not that comfortable. If you like bbq food, you'll like this place, but I think i'd prefer hill country chicken.

Most authentic Texas bbq outside of Texas. Great meats and sides. Some creative special items. A ton of food.

Good BBQ, a bit pricy for the experience and the rather limited quantities. Still, a very decent meal.

Got together with old friends from out of town. They really enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. Best to try a bit of everything if you aren't familiar with the various cuts. Great time overall.

Love the brisket. The staff were very cordial from when we entered until we left.

After doing some extensive research for local BBQ joints in Brooklyn, I came across several different options. I was looking for a different BBQ restaurant to celebrate my birthday. The Food was very tasty and had a good smoke. After you sit down and order your drinks, you head over to the "grammar school type" lunch line. There you are greeted by some awesome guys waiting to slab as much meat as you can eat on your lunch tray. The brown meat paper under neath the meat just adds to the atmosphere. Even the water was served in mason jars adding a nice little country touch. The BBQ sauce is readily available as it sits in a cool wooden box on your table. The server even recommended the different types of sauces from hot to not. Wood Tables and BBQ sauce all over your face, how can you go wrong! Not the restaurants fault, but if you are coming from out of borough like we did, parking is not close nor cheap. Be ready to spend a few extra bucks on parking. I would highly suggest to go early and leave some time to walk the Brooklyn Bridge (not that far away). It looked like Public Transportation was available, however that was not an option for us. We would come back!

I went on a Sunday afternoon, so it was quiet. The food was good, i just would have preferred table service. Nice place!

Finding a good BBQ spot in NY is not always easy. And I'm in no way a BBQ expert. But I really liked Hill Country Barbecue Market. The meat was tender and smokey. The sides also tasted great. I chose a mixed menu and got a lot of value (meat wise) for my money. They have tasty local beer and even live music. Overall a really enjoyable experience.
