Hill Country Restaurant Review

: A major pig-out awaits at DC's buzzing barbecue place in Penn Quarter. Jam-packed with hungry hordes, Hill Country sets the mark high for barbecue, and if you have the patience to wait in line, you will be rewarded with flavorful ribs obviously cut from a six-foot-tall hog, a selection of sides to keep your barbecued meats company, and ultra-creamy banana pudding. With a Texas attitude --- the staff wear Western-inspired garb and cowboy boots --- the menu also includes campfire baked beans, beer-braised cowboy pinto beans, a Texas sheet cake, Big Red soda from Texas, and skillet cornbread. This is serious eats, folks, and by the way, a bit hard on the pocketbook. Them's are mighty pricey ribs, but worth every penny.
