Hill Country Barbeque
Hi ho silver and away we go to some downhome authentic barbeque and fixins at this West 26th Street restaurant and music venue. Hill country is designed to look western and food is set up at stations where you choose your meat, sides and dessert and waitress service takes your drink orders. The meat here is smoked inhouse and is moist and flavorfull, but mighty expensive folks. The pork ribs are about $2.50 a rib, they are delectable, but do the math. Sides are first rate- we shared bourban sweet potatoes, German potato salad and the corn pudding all delish. I would say the German potato salad with it's chunks of cooked bacon is better than most I have tasted in Deutschland itself. The pecan pie was serviceable with a good amount of pecans to corn syrup, but you don't come for the dessert of course. The bathrooms are downstairs, left of the stage and are very charming with old painted wood cabinets. This barbeque joint with twangy Texas style music in the background and wood stocked shelves in a down home decor has the killer que.
