    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

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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

    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.

    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

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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!!

    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.

    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."

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Don't touch the barbecue sauce! Rather, request a slice of white bread or two to wrap your 'cue in, Texas style. Read more

    Update: Monday All-You-Can-Eat is from 5-9PM, costs $27 + extra $2 per special side (ahem, mac n' cheese.) Just FYI, y'all.

    Fatty brisket is delicious but it's all about the sides - collard greens and potato salad were amongst my favorite!

    Good choice for authentic BBQ. In a town w/ some of the country's best BBQ, this is on my 2nd tier list of good standbys.

    The pitmaster combo is huge! It could easily feed three. Also, I'd switch out the hot link for its jalapeño cheddar counterpart.

    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

    Hit and miss barbecue that's nevertheless enjoyable. The brisket's the best thing here--be sure to ask for it moist.
