Hill Country BBQ, NYC (pics, too, of course! Wed, 08/8/07 12:48 PM (permalink)

on August 5th , I experienced the Hill Country BBQ in NYC
It is located on 26th st, between 5th and 6th ave.
You can easily walk right by it, cause the signage is terrible.

go right up to the carving station to order. the "moist brisket" is $18.00 a pound, but you can get as much or as little as you want

I got a half pound of moist brisket and 2 beef ribs ($9.00 a pound)
My sides of choice were the corn pudding and the confetti cole slaw.
Everything was yummy!
I went back to try a 1/4 pound of the "lean" brisket, as they call it

It was real good , too. I would try both kinds, if I were you...


I even went back to try some more of the moist brisket... as my other portion cooled off real quick (my fault)


I recommend the Hill Country!

      My dear you are a true carnivore

      Those ribs and brisket looked awesome.

      Did you try any of the "if you got to have it" sauce?

          yes, I'm definitely the opposite of a vegitarian!
          And since I don't do seafood (except tuna subs), that makes me even MORE so....love my beef and chicken!

          I did try some of their Hill Country BBQ sauce, and it was quite good.

          My apologies in advance if I get scolded for not putting this in the BBQ forum. Actually, I thought I DID, and wondered why I could'nt find my thread. I thought it had disappeared. You are welcome to move it, moderators..

                There's a definite connection to Kreuz Market. Friends, relatives, something.

                  I always prefer the moist over the lean.

                    The point is always the first section of the brisket that I head to. Especially when it has been made into burnt ends!

                      Love those burnt ends! Not sure I could eat that much meat at one sitting but it sure looks great! Thanks for sharing!

                        hi, holly dolly....
                        to reiterate, it is located on 26th st, between 5th and 6th ave.

                        very comfy atmosphere.. I grabbed a nice sized table in the back, and had a relaxing meal. (and I was glad for the rolls of paper towels)
                        order the food and sides at the "stations", and the server just brings drinks.

                            Yes, thanks from here too. I had heard about this place but I think this is the first actual review I've seen. I'll definately add it to my NYC " food to Do" list. ( A lot more of my "food to do's" get done than my "around the house to do's", one must have priorities in life).

                            I was at Kruez market several years ago, one of my two favorite BBQ experiences ever, the other was Louie Mueller's in Tyler Tx. I'm not expecting this to be anywhere in that league, but if it's even just dam good BBQ it will be great to have it around.

                              In all due respect, Billyboy also put up a trip report about Hill Country about a month or so ago.

                              You'll be glad to hear that Hill Country BBQ is somehow related to the Kruez Market family in Lockhart, Texas.....

                              MY problem is that I've been too busy with the "food to do" list, and not busy enough with the "around the condo" list.... lots of straightening up to do... my magazines and newspapers really pile up!! Anyone else have this problem?!? (a lot more comes in than goes out)...also, I could use a GOOD maid.. ( I had a few bad ones recently)

                                  <<You'll be glad to hear that Hill Country BBQ is somehow related to the Kruez Market family in Lockhart, Texas.....

                                  MY problem is that I've been too busy with the "food to do" list, and not busy enough with the "around the condo" list.... lots of straightening up to do... my magazines and newspapers really pile up!! >>

                                  I saw the reference to Kruez in one of the posts, that's pretty much why I mentioned that I had been there. I see from the Hill Country website that the links actually do come from Kruez Market. The ones I had at Kruez were the best I ever had, I hope they travel well.

                                  Maybe I didn't say it so clear, but that's my problem too. Too many 50 mile drives for some food or other that's probably not much better than what I can get 15 minutes from my house, and not enough time taking care of things that need to be done around the house.
