    Great food, lousy set-up

    We had without a doubt some of the best bbq in our lives last night at Hill Country. We loved the short ribs and pork ribs, the briscuit was flavorfull though they ran out of the moist stuff right after us, and the sausage was a real treat. The beef ribs weren't great, wouldn't get those again. The sides were good, mac & cheese, green bean cassarole, and beans, all good. But the meat is the star here, lots of smoke flavor, very juicy and tender. The set-up though, is not good. The whole process needs to either be scrapped or streamlined. It may work in other places, but not NYC. The guys behind the counter are very nice and helpful, but, it's a long line when we'd rather be at the table having a couple of beers. Speaking of which, it was very difficult to actually get the attention of a waitress to get another drink, and we didn't quite know what to do re: the tip at the end of the meal. Anytime we wanted another drink we had to get up to get it, we left a few dollars for the bus boy (who was very good) but that's is. In the end, it's worth going for the food, but the place can improve greatly with better service.

    Eat the meat/Skip the Side

    BBQ is great. Go for the lean brisket, because the normal bbq is way to fatty. The sausage is excellent. Skip the sides. They are blah. Service is ok. Staff is friendly.

    Love bbq but disliked this place.

    Unpleasant experience from start to finish. We were told a 30 min wait and waited 45 min just so we could stand in line AGAIN to get cold ribs and mac and cheese that was 80% cheese. Subpar food, and the cafeteria style services made for an over-priced experience.

    Fun time, Good Eatin'

    I went to hill country for dinner with my Dad, sister, and cousin. My Dad had wanted to go there for a while, and although I wasn't convinced that I would be awed by a basic selection of barbeque, I was up for a new experience. When we got to the restaurant, I felt as though I was stepping out of the city and directly into a down home cooking neighborhood in Texas. I was intrigued, and the cafeteria style setup added to the experience. I ordered the beef ribs and beef shoulder with a side of the campfire baked beans, and my dad got both kinds of brisket and the bourbon sweet potato mash. His bristket was really good, as was the mash. My beans were excellent- flavorful and smooth. My beef ribs were extremely flavorful; they were smokey and well-seasoned. However, the meat did not fall off of the bone, and I was left to rip it off like a Flintstone. The beef shoulder was disappointing; it was dry and lacked flavor, but the sausage I tried was excellent. My cousin's macarroni was good, and the desserts were basic but pleasing. Banana pudding was nothing unusual, but it was a good follow-up to the barbeque. Pecan bourbon pie was good, but I did not even taste the Bourbon. It was an overall good experience, and I would definitely go there to have a good time or with people who aren't aren't expecting to be wowed by all of the selections and can deal with sticking to the favorites.

    good food, fun... but...

    food is good, and its fun getting it on your own, being able to look at it before you order, and not having to wait for a waitress. i enjoyed hte open seating downstairs, and on another nite i'd have listened to the band. things that need working on: - servers need to be a bit more informed. i went upstairs but was stopped on my way out by the bouncer. apparently, ya need to bring the receipt to get out. so, back downstairs to retrieve it. waitress, who was nice, didn't seem to know that was the gig. what would have been good: when i got downstairs, "sir, here is your receipt." better: server bringing receipt when she realized i'd left it in the checkbook. best: when giving me the checkbook w/ receipt, "sir, can you bring your receipt with you? you'll need it at the door." not such a big deal. this is certainly a place to where i'll take my little brother and uncles when he finally comes to visit.

    Yes! I found it!

    I'm from Texas, right outside of Austin, and ever since I've moved here, I've been looking for a place that does it right. Hill Country hit it for me just about all around the board: food, service, and style. Killer brisket and beans. Damn fine. The price was a little much, but it's in the middle of Manhattan, so I was expecting that. The few things that disappointed me were the mac'n'cheese and some mashed sweet potatoes that looked and tasted like baby food. Even though i didn't have to wait long myself, I can see other people's points about the wait. Just go at an off hour, sit down and enjoy yourself. You WILL leave stuffed!

    Three times was enough!

    Have tried just about all their fixings. The first two times was a hit; the third time, a calamity. Having ordered a pound of moist brisket for take out, amongst other things, I entered my home with a bag dripping with fat. Be careful; check your food before it is weighed. I've purchased the moist brisket here before; fat is to be expected with the moist, but the last time was ridiculus. There were two thick slices of fat (with no meat attached) in the fat-saturated wrapper that enclosed a mostly fatty brisket. (with very little meat). It was shameful.
