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.

Had out of town family in and I wanted BBQ. What better place than Hill Country?

The food was what I was hoping for/expecting, but what stood out was the staff. Everyone I interacted with (hostess, server, and two people behind the counters where you pick up your food) was on point and did their job well. I was impressed, and that makes me want to come back again (besides the food being so satisfying).

We arrived on a Tuesday evening and it was not too crowded. We sat downstairs and it was karaoke night. We didn’t sing but enjoyed the music. Service was friendly, food was good.

Hill Country never disappoints. Moist brisket just melts in your mouth. If you can't decide on what to eat, grab the Pitmaster (pork ribs, spicy sausage link, brisket and chicken with 2 sides). Baked beans with burnt ends can't be beat. If your table just likes BBQ, go on Monday and have "all you can eat" (whole table must partake). Hill Country is one of my "GO TO'" for dining.

Love the meat, sides could better and even have more of a selection... I also think you could more for your buck, not a lot of food and for the money we’re putting into a meal. Also, I think it’s really ludicrous to ask to recommend a 18 to 22% tip when the customers serve themselves for the most part... just my opinion

What really threw us off with this restaurant was the lack of courteous table service. The folks bussing the tables and the people serving the food in the cafeteria section were all great. The waitress was missing for nearly all of the meal and we had a hard time getting drinks and even our check. She was even discourteous to our grandmother. Too bad. Decent location and neat concept. We love BBQ. But with that service from the front of the house, we won't go back.

Nice smoke ring on all the meats. Everything thing that we had was overpowered by salt. Definitely not worth the price for not authentic BBQ

The food was ok. But we didn’t receive any attention from the wait staff and finally received our drinks after we had finished our meal. I was disappointed. I had a good experience my first time here but don’t think I’ll go back after this time. Underwhelmed.

Service staff did not explain the way the restaurant works regarding ordering of meat and sides, the server gave us not enough cuttlery for our group of four and we were unable to catch her attention again to obtain a fork so our group could eat together, it appeared she was more interested in the large groups.

The food was not that good. The mac and cheese was not chessey and the pasta is too large. The meat was tough and not so flavorful. The desert was good but would not go back. You should check out John Brown Smokehouse

The pit master special is delicious. The brisket is melt in your mouth and bursting with flavor.
It's a fun casual atmosphere, definitely a good value for your money and plentiful on the portions.
We now want to try their other location.
Highly recommend.

Hill County used to be one of the best BBQ restaurants in NYC - unfortunately this is no longer the case. On a Wednesday evening in December, at 8pm, they had ran out of 3 of what I suspect are there most popular dishes. Brisket, Beef Short Rib, pulled pork . In 2 years, prices have doubled. Which means your paying $30 per person for your pork belly or chicken (as they are sold out of everything else), which sort of defys the whole point of BBQ. On top of this staff was not knowledgeable on food allergies and our process for paying the bill was a mess. Big fall for what used to be one of my favorite places in NYC.

We traveled from CO to NYC for my daughter's 13th birthday and this was her choice for dinner, having visited last year for Thanksgiving. We had a large party of 13 (visiting from VA and NJ) and despite our reservation only being for 12 they quickly accommodated us and added extra seating. The meal was great, the wait staff, hostess, bar tender, food serves and manager were all friendly and engaging. They sang happy birthday to her and brought her a selection of desserts. Overall a great night out with friends.
