    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

    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 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.

    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

    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"

    Alden CatesFebruary 26, 2015
    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. :(

    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!

    Def try the moist (not lean) briskets, whats the pt gettin the minute health benefit and giving up the mind-blowing savor! Also do Pork belly and boneless prime ribs - better deal than bone ribs.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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).

    Pro tip: on Monday nights from 5 - 10 PM, Hill Country offers all-you-can-eat brisket, ribs, chicken, and sides for $25. [Eater 38 Member]

    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 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.

    Delicious BBQ sides. Beer buckets. Karaoke nights. Live country music (where else can you find that in NYC?). PB&J cupcakes. Picklebacks. Individual food cards make it great for big groups. LOVE.

    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!

    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!

    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."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    If you're hungry, don't do the All You Can Eat on Monday. Sounds like a great idea, but they bring your food restaurant style which takes 15-20 minutes between each round

    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.

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