went to the timeout wingfest! last weekend and the hill country wings was definitely my favorite. it was absolutely delicious. i don't think i've ever tried wings smoked/seasoned the way hill country did, and that's definitely why it stood out!

Much better than its Manhattan location, with better prices (free refills for Sweet Tea!) and a receipt that offers 10% off your next visit. Great service too, especially the guys behind the counter cutting up the meat! Love the spaciousness too - two floors and high ceilings.

The Chelsea location is an excellent BBQ joint.  It's definitely rather expensive but the ribs and mac n cheese are worth it!

Solid BBQ place-the ribs were great but not the best I've ever had. I loved the sides too, they have it all. Cornbread, mac n cheese, amazing cole slaw. Worth checking out!


One of the best things about Hill Country is ordering based on weight so you will always have leftovers. This was not the case on Monday around 8PM at the Brooklyn location. While the quality and taste was everything you would expect from a Southern BBQ feast, my disappointment came when the German Potatoes and Beef Shoulder were almost out leaving me with none to take home. I still highly recommend for some of the best BBQ in the city but perhaps stick to the Flatiron location if you're a person that wants some for the next day.

I love Hill Country Barbecue. It is one of those escape New York spots, where you feel transported to a totally different location - in this case, the South. The order at the counter style serving is also really great and lets you try a variety of offerings. All of the food is great - but the brisket and green bean casserole are outstanding! Be sure to check it out on a day with live music, downstairs. It is a great spot to hang out and really great for large groups. I would stay away from cocktails though, they are overpriced and not that great. Stick to beer here.
