Hill Country, at 30 W. 26th St. in New York, serves the best pork chop I have ever eaten. The lean brisket is also utterly superb. Yes, superb! Memorably inspiring! A relic of Eden!
The rest of the food is fair. The cornbread is passable, the desserts are too sweet and lacking subtlety, the sausages are unnecessarily greasy, the side dishes are mostly uninteresting. The "greens" are an embarrassment to anyone who has experienced Chinese food and knows what green vegetables are supposed to look and taste like. The fact that they offer you revolting white bread or crackers to eat your meat with is vulgar.
I suppose many of these items are aimed at the "normal" barbecue market and are part of the authenticity of the place. All right, I understand the marketing need to do it this way. But the pork chop and lean brisket are transcendental, and well worth a visit if you actually like good food. Just pass on the other things. and have your vegetables, starch, and dessert somewhere else.
