I was over charged. $180 for a Bill that should have been $220. Please check your bills. Not even an apology. Moreover the food was mediocre at best. The brisket was 90% fat. Please avoid. Worst experience I have had in years.

We came into the city to see a play & my husband wanted ribs - so he just googled BBQ in NYC. Hill Country was within the 1st 10 selections & the 1st one that was closest to where we need to go for the play. Just the smell of the meats cooking, when you walk in the place -... More

We've heard of Hill Country from friends in DC. It was near our hotel, so we thought we'd try it. We were seated without a reservation on a Friday night around 5:30 pm with the proviso that the restaurant needed the table by 6:30 - which should be no problem as long as we got our food promptly. Well, that's... More

Really good lean brisket, Mac and cheese and green bean casserole. A bit salty but ok. Good price also

We had the spare ribs and prime ribs which were EXCELLENT, and the briskets (that didn't blow our minds, they were a bit dry). Everything looked tempting though, even lean meats like chicken. The cornbread was out of this world and so was the Mac and cheese. I d be in trouble if I lived around the area... Great place!

Defenitely different from every other restaurant experience we tried in NYC. You sit down, then they ask you to go to the barbecue and choose and order your meats and sides by desired amount. We ended up ordering too much- our eyes are bigger than our stomach all the times-but the BBQ meats were all excellent-try the Brisket! Very very... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to Hill Country. Fine dining it is not, but it is a great fun , authentic BBQ joint. The moist brisket was full of flavour and I paired this with some of the hot links and pork belly whilst my wife had the chicken. The sides were tasty and plentiful and we even enjoyed... More

Amazing. Huge roller smoker on show. Order meat by weight. One of my best dining experiences, different to anything else and THE most tender piece of brisket i have ever tasted. Don't eat to much because you will want to party downstairs soon as you have finished!! The best in NYC

Admittedly am English (!) but have widely eaten BBQ food across the States and UK and this is one of the best - lovely moist brisket, flavoursome bbq sauce and delicious Texas hot links and ribs - and good portion sizes. Well worth a visit - and very reasonably priced for NYC.

Hands down our favorite bbq spot in NYC. We had the chicken, pork belly, brisket, and pork rib: all moist and delicious. Sides: corn muffins- fantastic. Collard greens, mac and cheese and cucumber salad: all were great. The highlight of dinner was the unbelievable dessert. We had the sweet potato bread pudding, brownie (UNREAL) and special cupcake (pb & j).... More
