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.

We made the mistake of going on the same night as a Caps game. It was crowded and they were out of bar items, some meat selections, sides and desserts. We were there at 6:30pm, so it should not have been as poorly stocked as it was. We were 3/4 of the way done with our food and still didn't get our drinks. We had to speak to a manager who was very apologetic and comp'd us more than fairly. Between the service and the "sold out" menu items, we may not be returning. The food we did get to eat was delicious.

Texas dry rub smoked BBQ. Perfect if this is what you are looking for. This was our fourth visit. We will return.

Fantastic BBQ in the DC area. Best thing, in my opinion, is the smoked prime rib. Amazing!

Went there before a Caps game with the guys. Good place for BBQ and everything we ordered was very tasty and extremely good. For 5 men, 3 PitMasters were very filling and did the trick.

We thought the BBQ was good but that it did not live up to its billing as the best in town. The brisket was the best. The chicken was dry and the ribs a little tough. However, the service was friendly and helpful without being overbearing. All in all pleasant but nothing to go out of one's way for.
