If you’ve always thought you need to go to the deep South to get authentic southern barbeque, you’re wrong. Hill Country Barbecue Market is closing the gap between the American South and the rest of the country’s major cities by providing home-style Texas barbeque in New York City and Washington D.C. Hill Country Barbecue Market is located just a five-minute walk from Newseum Residences apartments and hopes to spread the culture of Austin and Texas Hill Country to the District.
Customers order the barbecue meat by the pound in a cafeteria-style setting, and fill out their trays with sides like baked beans, corn pudding, macaroni and cheese, green bean casserole and sweet potatoes mashed with bourbon. On Wednesday nights, the restaurant hosts live band karaoke in true Texas style. To continue to stay connected to its Austin roots, Hill Country is always hosting live music performances, usually completely free for guests.
