About Hill Country Barbecue Market – Flatiron
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.

Hill Country Barbecue Market – Flatiron Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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.
booked this restaurant in NYC thru open table and when we arrived, they didn't have any reserv for us and had even booked most of the place for a special party. We were only able to sit in the bar area. They did give us a complimentary drink for our trouble which was nice. the food is very overpriced and the sides were very average.
Overall I enjoyed my meal, however I was disappointed that they ran out of pulled pork. Surely they must know the popular items so should plan accordingly.
I was also less than impressed with the first server that I had. She never offered me drinks and just disappeared. The next server was much better.
Excellent BBQ. Great selection of meats. All was perfectly smoked. The sausages from Kreuz are always good. The brisket was like butter; you didn't need a knife. The sides (mac and cheese, collard greens, corn pudding and baked beans) were very tasty. Hill Country is one of my favorites for BBQ. Their quality rivals any BBQ restaurant in the south and west.
We ordered spare ribs, dark chicken quarter, pulled pork, black eye peas, Mac & cheese, corn pudding. The service was great and love the recommendations. The place was not busy the day after Thanksgiving. I would have rated it higher because there was no bourbon sweet potatoes & pies. The sweet tea was delicious. We'll come here again.
This was our second time here while visiting NYC for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed it so much two years ago that we knew we wanted to come back. The food was good; meats were excellent. However, the service was almost non-existent. We were very rarely checked on and, when asking for a refill, it took an extremely long time. Being that you get all of your own food (Thanksgiving dinner service is kind-of buffet-style), service should be fast and straightforward. For the price of the meal, even though the BBQ is on par with the best we've had, I can't say we'll be back next time we visit.
