Named Best BBQ in NY by NY Mag & Time Out NY, and Top 10 BBQ in the US by the WSJournal, Hill Country honors the barbecue and live music capital of Texas. We feature Live Music five nights a week including Live Band Karaoke on Tuesday nights.
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.
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.
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. :(
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
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
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"
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).
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!
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.
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."
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!!
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.
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.
Do you like your meat served up in neat little paper packages? How about a night of good music, better people, and bottomless drinks? Join us for our Festivus party every December benefiting charity!
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
New York Times writer Frank Bruni loves this restaurant for the succulent brisket, heavenly ribs, mouthwatering corn pudding, and tantalizing peanut butter & jelly cupcakes.
Great atmosphere and a superb selection of tasty BBQ, the moist beef brisket is stunning! Well worth a visit anytime!
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.
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
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!!
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]
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.
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.
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
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.
#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!
