We've been talking smack about New York's upscale BBQ trend, as we're more into the southern-style hole-in-the-walls than the BBQ-for-hipsters hotspots. But the truth is, some of these places are actually worth it. OK, at least one is.
Hill Country BBQ is a relative newcomer with a trendy Flatiron District location, a crowded live music lineup, and frequent Al Roker sightings. So we were rightfully a little suspicious this might not be the real deal.
But Hill Country lives up to the hype. The Texas-style pork ribs are spot-on and spicy, the moist brisket is tender and soft, and one of the most important BBQ aspects—the sides—are pretty perfect as well. With gooey mac and cheese, hot red chili, and smoky chipotle deviled eggs, even vegetarians leave Hill Country happy—and that's pretty solid praise for a traditional Texas BBQ joint.
