    Try the brisket, which comes "moist" (a.k.a., fatty) for $23.50/pound, or lean for two bucks less—but get the moist, because if you're going to do it, then goddamn do it, amirite? Read more

    Pretty solid brisket with a good bark and sauce with a decent bite. Hot link a bit over done. Surprising they serve at the volume they do and it's still as good as it is. I spy smokers on premises.

    This institution succeeds in perfectly recreating Central Texas barbecue. The brisket – available in fatty or lean – is amazing, but the beef shoulder is often even better, smoky and richly textured. Read more

    Brisket. Chicken. Spare ribs. Pork belly. Hot link. Baked beans. Live music. Lone Star. What more do you really want. Atmosphere excellent. Cooks very helpful. Food one of the best values on city!

    Went at 6pm on sat night. Short rib (bone in) was already sold out so we ordered brisket(moist), prime rib and pork spare ribs. All three are nice and the cucumber and cole slaw are good too.

    The moist beef brisket is truly excellent and a must try. Best sides: Longhorn Cheddar Mac & Cheese and White Shoepeg Corn pudding. Make a reservation. It's always packed it seems.

    Hill Country offers two daily happy hours: one from 4 to 7 PM, and another at 10 PM. Here, a single Shiner on draft or Margarita is available for $5, or opt for a pitcher which is $20 each. Read more

    Super friendly staff and pretty efficient for getting the food at the counter considering the long line. The moist brisket was great plus the bbq sauce added a good kick. The corn bread was amazing!

    Very good experience. Lean brisk is perfectly juicy and soft to eat. Sides are great. Good selection of beverages. Have a look at the items on the check to make sure all is correct though.

    Lean brisket is amazing, as is the mac and cheese, green bean casserole, corn bread with butter

    Go hungry. No need for bbq sauce for the beef ribs and pork ribs -- so flavorful alone. Leave room for sides and dessert! Great for groups.

    The brisket is a must-get, but so is the jalapeño and cheddar sausage, it's juicy and mild. Bourbon sweet potatoes are also a must, but skip the Mac & cheese, it needs sharper cheese or seasoning. :(

    The Flatiron restaurant flies in Kreuz Market sausage, Big Red soda, Lone Star beer, and Blue Bell ice cream daily. Chef Elizabeth Karmel’s penne mac and cheese or green bean casserole are must-tries.

    Brisket is amazing. Probably the best I've had outside of Lockhart, TX. Ribs were ok and sausage was incredibly greasy/oily. Food is self service and the line for food is quite long during busy times.

    This NYC staple earns its keep with fatty brisket, jalapeño-cheese sausage and sweet-potato-bourbon mash, plus live music and honky-tonk vibes. Read more

    I can't find anywhere in the city with such great brisket. I mean it is absolutely delicious. Everything is perfect. Perfect for families or groups or a comfortable date. Like a picnic in the dark

    I love how this place smells like whiskey and smoke as soon as you walk in. The staff are super friendly and all the food is good. I wish they had the lamb belly though!

    Oh my, that brisket... cut thick, pillowy soft, perfectly smoked. Spring for as many sides as your wallet and belly will allow.

    Love this place! Super informal, you buy your meat by the pound! The atmosphere's really good, often with live music. Food is excellent, the smoked ribs are to die for.

    ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE BBQ! Go here if you're looking for an authentic Texan meal in the heart of NYC! My friend from Houston gave it the stamp of approval!

    This isn't hipster BBQ. It's Texas bbq in Manhattan. Best in Manhattan I've had so far. Try the shoulder clod. Mac and cheese is made with penne and is good.

    Texas-style barbecue... in New York City? Believe it. Dry rub brisket, spare ribs, game hen, corn pudding, sweet potato mash, and even Lone Star Beer, with a side of live American roots music.

    We arrived around 6 and waited 30 minutes to be seated. Too bad only brisket and ribs were available. Nice meat and ambience. Cucumber salad is very yummy.

    Excellent sausage from Kreuz market in Lockhart. Wonderful brisket. Sauce was good, but could be a bit smokier. Blue Bell ice cream to top things if...felt like I was back home!

    Don't make rookie mistakes: 1) eat your brisket with a shake of the salt/pepper mix (shaker on table); 2) dont over order meat -- you can always go back up (1/2 lb + sides is plenty for most).

    For sides, opt for the stellar, creamy mac 'n cheese and sweet cornbread with ancho honey butter, and wash your meal down with a glass of Sweet Tea served in a 16 ounce Mason Jar. Read more

    Adorable dinner. Rather than brisket moist try the boneless prime rib. Everything is perfect. Free drinking water service. Amazing barbeque place. Stay on the line for hours, it will worth!

    A little loud for large groups, but delicious! Amazing sausage, deviled eggs, and cucumber salad. Nice cocktails. Happy hour after work until 7, and then late night happy hour starts fairly early.

    Quality is top notch! Get the moist brisket, shoulder clod, prime rib & short rib. Get the longhorn mac & cheese & skillet cornbread!

    1) Figure out the menu on Menu Pages, they just give you a little card. 2) Chicken was delicious. 3) They added the sides $ to the cost of the meal -- motive? They fixed it. 4) it is very "theme"

    Brisket comes highly recommended but if you are not sure what to order and how much, try their set menu. The Pitmaster for 2 people, others for one person portion

    Always go for their moist brisket, it has a ton more taste. The burnt ends on the brisket is super tasty but the actual meat is kind of tasteless. Not cheap but still a great bbq spot.

    Love the beans! Jalapeño sausage awesome and brisket was better than expected but not great! Sides all good! Not too shabby for NYC!

    Brisket, ribs, and pulled pork are excellent here. Whether they’re stuffed in a taco or served by themselves, the BBQ here is the real deal.

    See if the smoked chicken wings are available: rubbed with a mixture of mustard powder, cayenne, brown sugar & other spices, then smoked for 2 hrs. They are one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011 Read more

    Incredible pork ribs and bbq sauce. Corn bread ok. Bourbon sweet potato a little too much going on. Brisket also phenomenal

    Grub Street off-menu dish: Chili Mac. "Red chili & macaroni and cheese are both regularly available, but upon request, the restaurant is more than willing to combine them into a single gonzo mash-up."

    Born and raised in Texas, forced to live in Connecticut for marriage. Ate here and I was in HEAVEN, it was just like home. I had chopped BBQ, corn, Blue Bell ice cream, and a Big Red. Awesome!!

    Fette this, RUB that - HC is hands down the best pit in NYC. Moist brisket is a must. Pro tip: request "chilimac" at the Sides&Trimmings Bar and you'll receive a meatycheesy surprise.

    Best brisket I've ever had. Make sure you get the "moist" brisket. My go-to is 1 chicken leg and 2 slices of moist brisket.

    Chooser the "moist" brisket. Like the name implies, excellent fat to meat ratio and a bark with a perfect caramelized/smoky combination

    Had a great meal here. Meat is ordered by the pound so you can have as much or as little as you like. Live music downstairs too.

    Not only does this place make me feel at home with food & music, servers have southern hospitality! Couldn't decide between the ancho chocolate pudding and the bread pudding. gave me one on the house!
