Hill Country Barbecue Market
New York, NY 10010
Village Voice's Description
Though the name is something of a misnomer (most great Texas barbecues are located east of Austin, not in the Hill Country), this institution succeeds in perfectly recreating Central Texas barbecue, emulating Kreuz Market in Lockhart, Texas. The brisket--available in fatty or lean--is amazing, but the beef shoulder is often even better, smoky and richly textured. The sausage actually comes from Kreuz Market, and is unimpeachable in a loose-skinned sort of way. Don't touch the barbecue sauce! Rather, request a slice of white bread or two to wrap your 'cue in, Texas style.
Tips from foursquare
See if the smoked chicken wings are available: rubbed with a mixture of mustard powder, cayenne, brown sugar & other spices, then smoked for 2 hrs. They are one of our #100best dishes & drinks of 2011
Pro tip: on Monday nights from 5 - 10 PM, Hill Country offers all-you-can-eat brisket, ribs, chicken, and sides for $25. [Eater 38 Member]
New York Times writer Frank Bruni loves this restaurant for the succulent brisket, heavenly ribs, mouthwatering corn pudding, and tantalizing peanut butter & jelly cupcakes.
Best moist brisket ever!! Amazing BBQ sauce.
Pitmaster Pete Daversa creates Texas-style cue' with a saloon style atmosphere. Take your pick from great dishes like the dry-rubbed rib, chops and wet/dry briskets.
