Wow! The food was huge and delicious... the meat is amazing, with a great selection and the sides are bigger than you think, so order with caution! Our server was loads of fun, and we had an awesome time! I ordinarily don't like lining up for food, but the whole experience adds to it. Well worth a visit if you are hungry or feel like something a little different!

My cousin came into town on a business trip so my brother recommended this place. My cousin is originally from Texas and has been out of the country for a few years. We figured he's hurting for some serious BBQ type food.

We got there on a Tues night and the place was busy. Not overly crowded but for a party of 8, we had to wait 45 minutes. While waiting, we ordered a few ribs to gnaw on. A sign of things to come! It was delish! My pre-teens were definitely putting teeth marks in the ribs. I would've like it better if the hard skin part was taken off the rib first. It was a bit like biting into a piece of packing tape.

The staff at Hill Country is young and casual. Very helpful when explaining how to order your food. You get a meal ticket and stand on line to the "carving station". Once there, you have your choice of the daily special, pork ribs, beef ribs, moist brisket, lean brisket, boneless prime rib, chicken, etc... You order by the weight. I saw "whole hog" and I just had to have it. I was hoping for a crunchy piece of skin as well but the meat was stripped off and the skin looked pretty tough (think football...) I also got the boneless prime rib and the brisket moist (recommended by my brother who is a total carnivore). The meats were divine! They're weighed out on a scale and wrapped up in butcher paper. When I placed my order of a 1/4 pound brisket moist, the server yelled out to the carver.... "QUARTER MOIST!" It was like a scene from a restaurant in a movie. Very juicy, tender brisket! Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed.
As yummy as the brisket moist was, just when I thought things couldn't be better,,,,, the whole hog was the top rung of the ladder for me. Fall-off-the-bones tender, perfectly seasoned, juicy, and utterly delicious. It was so tempting to start picking at the pieces while I was standing on line for the sides. The boneless prime rib was also excellent. Perfectly cooked medium rare. Not bloody, not tough. After the meats were weighed out, a sticker is placed on your meal ticket and you pay at the cashier after eating.

I shared a meal ticket with my son and thank goodness I divvied the meats beforehand otherwise I'm not too sure I'd have any for myself. He was gobbling it down so fast!

The sides I got was the green bean casserole and the mac and cheese thing. Both were nicely seasoned. Someone else at our table got the corn pudding. Pretty good as well. Has a bit of spiciness to it. It looked good and I will get it the next time I'm here.

The decor is pretty homey/country. Wooden tables, wooden seats, conversations of people having good food and a good time. I couldn't take any photos to post because I was so engrossed in the eating! It was THAT good! Needless to say, my Texas cousin loved it, I loved it and my brother that recommended this place continues to love it!

This place is amazing. The moist brisket is out of this world good. The atmosphere is very fun and Texan with weekly live music. I would recommend it to anyone.

This is a bustling, cavernous place. Wooden tables, saw dust on the floor, the smell of wood smoke. You go to the counter to order and carry a tray back to your table. Pretty basic but good atmosphere and fun - especially for kids. Tasty food and generous helpings. The pork ribs are great. $25 per person plus drinks.
