Do try the ribs, brisket and prime rib, all priced by the pound, for the chicken does not measure up to the pork or beef offerings. You'll note that brisket can be had lean or slightly more fatty, and recall that fat means additional flavor. Your meat comes with crackers or white bread, both nice mopping-up options, especially if you go heavy on the sauces. Side dishes are fairly standard, ranging from black-eyed peas to macaroni (with or without chili) and sweet potatoes. Desserts are predictable, whether banana pudding or the familiar take on the pecan pie. The beer selection is below average for Manhattan, and you can order cocktails, wine and all other drinks at your table. Calculating the gratuity can be a challenge here, in particular if you procured your own beverages from the bar; we'll leave the bloggers to sort out this issue. While we find the barbecue here to be one of NYC's top contenders, despite the ever-increasing popularity of BBQ in the flatlands of NYC, Hill Country lacks the quirky authenticity you would find in Kansas City, Oakland or Austin.

Do try the ribs, brisket and prime rib, all priced by the pound, for the chicken does not measure up to the pork or beef offerings.

While we find the barbecue here to be one of NYC's top contenders, despite the ever-increasing popularity of BBQ in the flatlands of NYC, Hill Country lacks the quirky authenticity you would find in Kansas City, Oakland or Austin. On the other hand, since faux authenticity and sparklin'-clean floors delight New Yorkers of all stripes, Hill Country certainly succeeds in recreating this Austin legend.
