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 order process was confusing, the waitstaff gives you a menu, then you go place your order at two different counters and bring the food back to your table. The tables are long, communal tables that are close together so you are constantly bumped by people trying to get out. The food was good, but nothing special. The waitress finally brought our drinks about halfway through our meals and never returned. We finished eating, had the table cleared, and finally asked another staff member to get us our check.

On vacation from London and we found this fantastic place. The staff will tell you how it works. If you are a meat lover this is the place to go. Live music downstairs where you can also eat. Thank you for a great night

If you are familiar with and love southern pit-smoked barbeque that falls from the ribs as you pick up the bone, stay away from this place. This is not the pit-smoked St. Louis or southern style barbeque ribs that you’d enjoy in Big Mama’s back yard with drinks, while everyone is dancing to “Before I Let Go” by Maze. It is a big, overpriced disappointment.

I decided to check it out after seeing the bald-headed guy from The Chew profile it on the Food Network. Now I'm looking at The Chew with a side-eye.

I won't be back.

Good bbq in Manhattan. Can’t question the quality or the ambiance but it is a bit pricy. Saying that, it was an overall great experience for our family including our 10 and 7 year olds.

If you want great Texas style BBQ this is a good spot. The food is a little cold because naturally because you order, they cut it up and weigh it, then you take it to your table.. it's all self serve, which you can appreciate or hate. I like that about this place. The waiter/waitress in my case only showed up once throughout our meal and was just hanging out chatting with other staff when we needed him. So basically, expect zero service. You go get your own food, your own drinks at the bar, etc. The wait staff is as helpful as they would be at McDonalds, to give you an idea. Great food, terrible service, medium to high prices, but not a bad deal for Manhattan. I recommend this place, just set your service expectations low before y'all go!

Over priced and very poor service. The meats were good, but not great. The sides were not good at all. Our server was very nice, but didn’t know anything about how the menu worked. Our bill was $120 for 2 adults and 2 children without alcohol or desserts and we drank water....Wow!!! Save your money. Too many great places to eat in the city!!

The table where we were sit was right next others so when we had to go get the food, the people sit at the other tables had to stand up to let us out. This is very annoying.
The meat was good but the sides were just ok, it felt like they had been re-heated for hours.

I travel to NY every week, and Hill Country is a mandatory stop. The best brisket I have ever had. Order it moist. Sausages are good, and the prime rib is awesome . This time, I had the burnt ends and was mildly disappointed as they were dry. Burnt ends are the prime portion of the Brisket so I expect them to be as most as the brisket was. However, if you like smoked bbq, you will LOVE hill country.

Food is good. Staff is friendly. Prices way out of line. You have to go to a counter to order and food is wrapped in paper. This may be authentic and a theme but not for $30 per meal.

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).

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.
