“Glad we stopped”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014 via mobile

We left Storyland and planned on stopping somewhere else, but all the places on our list had huge waits. We decided to pull into Hillbilly, glad we did. The kitchen was a little slow but the food was very good. For our family of 4 (4&5 year old) we shared the hillbilly buffet, and had leftovers.

“Mediocre food at a high price.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

I went to this restaurant looking to get genuine BBQ and was very disappointed. I ordered a full rack of ribs at a price of $31 and the ribs were dry, rather tasteless and did not have that "fall off the bone" quality. For $31, you only get the ribs and a slice of garlic bread. No sides at all (chips, cole slaw, fries -- all are priced separately). My wife and daughter went to the salad bar and found mostly greens and found nothing special there. The restaurant advertises in the local tourist paper that children 5 and under eat free. I was traveling with 3 children who were 5 and under. The children could only order from the child's menu and at billing time the server charged us for the meals. She explained that the "free meal" is for children 4 and under. She did eventually capitulate and removed the charge for the children. One bright spot was that the wings were big and had a nice taste. Based upon my dining experience at this restaurant, don't believe their advertisements claiming that they serve award winning and acclaimed ribs.

“Slow service, slow kitchen”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We were seated immediately, then waited for over ten minutes for a server to acknowledge our presence. We ordered both beverages and food. While the drinks came somewhat quickly, the food did not. It was just under 50 minutes when our dinners arrived. The server set down the plates and announced that the kitchen was busy. Within five minutes, she checked on us and wanted to know if the food was worth the wait. Upon finishing and asking for the bill, it was another ten minutes of waiting. Food quality was fine, but definitely NOT worth the wait. There will be no return visits from us.

“Nothing Close to Real BBQ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014

Service was excellent, staff were very friendly. But food was just OK. I know that Massachusetts is not the place to get Real Southern BBQ, but I have had a lot better in the northeast.
