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
Coming from Texas I know Texas barbecue. The brisket is good and the sausage from Kreuz market seems authentic. The service and the process to get food is poor. I think they need to make a trip to Lockhart to see how it is done.
There was lots of staff around but they were busy doing things other than taking care of the customers.
The 'moist' brisket is even better than the ribs, and that's saying something. Terrific collard greens and excellent beans. The Mac and cheese is decent but I've had better. Good selection of Bourbons and ryes at reasonable prices. The noise level is what you would expect. We've tried other 'cue places but keep coming back here.
Meat portions for the "3 meats + 2 sides" was a bit skimpy. Brisket was cooked perfectly, but too salty. Needed more of a "kick" - perhaps more black pepper or something else to cut the saltiness. Should also offer horseradish, or a horseradish-based sauce as a condiment. Brisket goes well w/horseradish and is a common condiment here in NYC for brisket.
I have eaten here 3 times and my recent experience was far inferior to my previous visits. The downsides:
1. Football was in and noise from the TV and the crowd noise made conversation impossible. It was an assault on the senses
2. They had run out of several meats so the choice was limited. This was pretty disappointing for a Saturday night where you would think they would have their formula and supply sorted
3. Menu format is confusing and, apart from the waiter, the staff were pretty indifferent and frankly looked miserable
4. There isn't really a kids menu so my daughter had some cornbread and a few bits of chicken. I guess it's not a kid-friendly venue
I like the concept of this place, but it wasn't working at all on saturday night.
Second time I've been here for a birthday celebration - this time mine. We were seated downstairs, which was perfect because upstairs was very noisy and crowded. I had a drink at the bar while waiting for the rest of the party - smokey margarita! Drinks are strong and creative, the food is great, the service was friendly and welcoming. If you want BBQ head here, and don't skip the PB&J cupcakes.
Did not like the food. First you have to stand in one line to get your entree meats and then another line to get sides. Process took too long and felt like slow cafeteria.
I had ribs, chicken and brisket, none was good. Chicken dry, ribs fair, brisket very salty with little taste.
I went to this restaurant for my birthday with 10 other people and had a blast. The food was delicious, I recommend the two meats for $23 at the back of the menu, and the alcohol wasn't too expensive. I emphasise 'too'. However I was a little disappointed because the waitress gave me a complimentary birthday 'shot' but then charged me for it at the end which was $14! This is why I gave the service a 'fair' rating.
That being said, I do recommend this restaurant.
Food was amazing. I personally am not a person that needs to have pipping hot food but other do so that's the one thing I would be aware of when coming here. All the meeting is amazing and fresh but not hot hot if that's your thing. Happy hour was pretty good with $6 margaritas and $2 jello shots.
Really cool atmosphere, amazing service, very friendly and welcoming. The food was amazing.
Tried the brisket, short rib, burnt ends, sausage, and pork loin, they were all delicious!! The sides were great. Tried the chili, Mac and cheese, and collard greens, all were outstanding. I would recommend it for an amazing barbeque experience. 5 stars
Eight guys from out of town. Wanted BBQ. Meats sold by weight and served on butcher paper. Sides served in cups. The meats were cooked perfectly. The brisket was "melt in your mouth". Don't get to NYC much but would go back to this place.

It was my 3rd visit and the most disappointing one. The restaurant was almost empty, the brisket dry and tasteless. The staff turned out to be very unfriendly and treated us different then other tables. I recommended the place based on previous good experience but this time everything went wrong.
