Hillbilly's is a quirky place with pleasant staff, but the food is ordinary to poor. The ribs were pretty good and the sauce was very good. The green beans were straight out pf a can, in bits and pieces, and barely warm. The collards were very tasty. The baked sweet potatoes we're watery and the skins were burned so much... More

This is the first restaurant review I've ever typed. Hillybillys was so bad I felt the need to write one. I went there today and got a small beef with mash potatoes and a baked potatoe and my boyfriend got 1/2 a chicken with mash potatoes and corn. For starters my small beef was cold and stale. Our mash potatoes... More

Now that I've made your mouth water I have to say this is a great place to eat. Everytime I am in town I go to Hillbilly's. I always get the pulled pork plate with baked sweet potato and a big glass of sweet tea. It's doesn't get more southern than a dinner at Hillbilly's! The ladies are super nice... More

Went here on the fly. Server was nice. The hush puppies we're good but I thought it was strange to offer them at a bbq joint...had a bbq pork sandwich. It was good but I had better. It was a finely chopped bbq.

I love the smell of this place. Great smoked ribs and chicken. The service could be a little better but me and my daughter love this food. I would recommend this to anyone who loves good smoked food. Now some people can't tolerate the smoke in the restaurant but you know it is cooked right then and not processed days... More

If you are traveling I-85 in the Metro Area you should make a point to stop and eat at Hillbilly's. It is the best BBQ in the area, their sauce is the best I have ever eaten.

The food was great, I left stuffed and the hush puppies were a nice touch as a light substitute as an appetizer! Dipped in BBQ sauce, they were really good! The steak I had was cooked right to perfection! I like a good medium steak and the Ribeye was really good!! Salad bar had a lot to choose from and... More

I'm staying at a hotel in the area and when I checked in I asked for a recommendation on authentic North Carolina style ribs. This is the recommendation I got. I read the reviews ahead of time and decided to give it a fair chance. If you do your homework, you will know that this is authentic NC style bbq.... More
