Stumbled across this restaurant whilst wandering around nearby. Loved the interior 'market' feel and the counters where you order your meats and the separate 'sides' counter. I had beef short rib which was ridiculously tasty.. the meat fell off the bone and the flavour was incredible! I could have eaten that all day long! Sides were good and a decent... More

I was a little confused when I first walked into Hill Country but my confusion gave way to the amazing barbecue aroma wafting from the aluminum pit roasters in the back of the restaurant. My waitress kindly instructed me on how to walk up to the counter and order my meat BY THE POUND! I opted for a two meat... More

I met one of the owners of this establishment while on the Staten Island Ferry of all places and he gave me a card to visit the restaurant after he saw me rocking my Texas longhorns hat. My wife and I arrived and got our dinner cards and it's an a la carte type of restaurant..quarter pound of brisket here,... More

We were recommended this by our concierge at our hotel. I loved the idea of choosing your own weight of different meats and then sides, plus you can go back up if you want more! I had the pulled pork with bread, coleslaw and jalapeños. Coleslaw was big enough for me to share with my friend. Price is ok but... More

I literally love this place! Every time I go to NYC I come here. The food is amazing, the atmosphere is really fun (especially in the basement where they have karaoke and stuff) and it is quite novelty paying for meat by the pound. Would recommend the Mac 'n' Cheese!!

Recommended by a friend so we gave it a try. I had the brisket sandwich which was a fist size pile of shredded brisket on an ordinary hamburger bun. The barbecue sauce was in a squeeze bottle on the table. My friend had the pulled pork sandwich served just like mine. He had a side of baked beans which were... More

For NYC, BBQ was good, but not what you find in the south. Portions are pretty small. I had the brisket BBQ sandwich. It lacked BBQ sauce and it was served on a small hamburger bun. Mac cheese was good, but on the dry side. It was also served with penne type pasta. Restaurant Concept is that you carry an... More

Went there with 9 friends in the hopes of some good Texas bbq. interesting concept: you have a meal ticket; you go up and order what you want and how much you want. they weigh the meat and you are charged accordingly. same goes with sides and dessert. unfortunately, the food was flavorless and generally undercooked - even the chicken...

Good lunch spot. You can choose what types of BBQ and how much you get. I would recommend getting the burnt ends, delicious! Waitstaff was great. There is also a downstairs that has a stage for live music. Looks like it would be a fun time.

Good concept. I liked the idea of ordering the meat by weight and mix and match of the menu. Good atmosphere and food was excellent too.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
