    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

    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

    it's over rated. The food was fine but not wow.I didn't like the idea that you have to go and serve yourself and with everything you want they mark it in a paper you should be carrying with you

    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.

    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.

    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.

    DailyCandy · November 20, 2013
  • Alden C.

    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. :(

    Alden Cates · February 26, 2015
  • Nora G.

    if you're a vegetarian you can still enjoy corn pudding, mac n cheese, baked beans, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, and so much more. happy hour includes 2 for 1 PBRs. bucket of lone star good too

  • Zaphiria Z.

    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

  • Barbara R.

    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"

    Barbara Rose · July 2, 2013
  • Anuj M.

    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).

  • Kinjil M.

    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!

    Kinjil Mathur · January 28, 2015
  • Ken T.

    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.

    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

  • Caitlin M.

    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.

    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."

    Risa · September 21, 2012
  • Nikki B.

    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!!

    Nikki BarrLicious · July 21, 2012
  • M Lauren H.

    Transplant yourself to Austin. Have brisket or the wings on Wednesday with a beer. They are all that much better with the live music. So get on yer boots y'all and your lone star frame of mind.

    M Lauren Hill · January 12, 2013
  • Gothamist

    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

    Gothamist · August 1, 2014
  • Tash C.

    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.

    Nothing says Texas like live entertainment, and Hill Country never disappoints. Their Club & Bar stage has live Austin-style music throughout the week, making dinner the precursor to a fun evening. 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!

    Ozan Vural · May 2, 2013
  • Steven L.

    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.

    Steven Lu · August 27, 2014
  • Dale T.

    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!

    Dale Travis · August 10, 2014
  • Ben P.

    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.

    Ben Porter · September 5, 2012
  • Nicole

    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.

    Nicole · June 9, 2015
  • Eatocracy

    Boot scoot on over to Hill Country for some low and slow-smoked brisket, ribs and all the southern fixings. Save room for a PB & J cupcake. Everything's bigger in Texas so bring your appetite.

    Eatocracy · June 10, 2010
  • Faith

    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!

    Faith · September 22, 2014
  • Natalia B.

    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.

    Natalia Baker · October 27, 2014
  • Mike D.

    Everytime I come here I wind up OD'ing on pork. Timing is everything, be prepared to wait at the cramped bar for at least an hour if you come at a peak hour. (3 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Mike Dizon · January 4, 2012
  • Paul S.

    The only truly annoying thing about this place is they don't give free refills on fountain drinks. What's up with that? Also they charge for pickles and onions, unbecoming for a TX BBQ joint IMHO!

    Paul Suwan · October 31, 2011
  • Harumi U.

    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

    Harumi U · February 8, 2015
  • J D.

    The food is too salty for my taste and warning, it's market style. This means you get your own food. Also beware of which sides you get with the Sunday pit combo bc they might charge extra.

    J Dubs · June 27, 2011
  • I Love Food G.

    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.

    I Love Food Guy · February 25, 2015
  • Epicurious

    New York Times writer Frank Bruni loves this restaurant for the succulent brisket, heavenly ribs, mouthwatering corn pudding, and tantalizing peanut butter & jelly cupcakes.

    Epicurious · August 23, 2010
  • Tobias R.

    Great atmosphere and a superb selection of tasty BBQ, the moist beef brisket is stunning! Well worth a visit anytime!

    Tobias Reiper · January 12, 2015
  • Andrew L.

    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.

    Andrew Lam · May 20, 2012
  • Matthew K.

    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

    Matthew Knell · August 27, 2012
  • Ben B.

    so good!, don't mess around, make a reservation, grab a few good friends and get the beef shoulder and some ribs!!! AND don't miss The Dixons whenever they're playing!!

    Ben Brown · March 31, 2010
  • Eater

    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]

  • Metromix

    Pitmaster Pete Daversa creates Texas-style cue' with a saloon style atmosphere. Take your pick from great dishes like the dry-rubbed rib, chops and wet/dry briskets.

    Metromix · July 15, 2010
  • Compass

    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.

    Compass · May 16, 2014
  • Adam H.

    Stay away from the pulled pork, this is a Texas joint. The bill can run up quick here to if they're running the Feed Your Family special look into that

    Adam Hill · May 16, 2013
  • Clayton

    Order the moist end of the lean cut brisket, a side of cool cucumbers and a jalapeno link - seating at the bar downstairs is best, ask for Ezra Brooks.

    Clayton · August 17, 2009

    #redneck haven 😉 lovely place. Come in your lumber flannel shirt and you fit in perfectly. Great food experience and good staff.

    Asked for tabel said I had to leave in 1.5 hours..out of brisket, prime rib and mac n cheese and waitress over charged me $15 on the bill! Not sure if I'm coming back.

    Brisket is pretty good, chicken is awesome, and can't leave without green bean casserole or a Shiner Bock!

    Jason · February 8, 2015
  • David L.

    Always get the moist brisket. If the pit roasted whole hog is a special, get that too. Best BBQ in Manhattan. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more
