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. But pork ribs are only a part of the menu: you can order prime ribs, beer can chicken, turkey breast, and two different kinds of sausages. 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, sweet potato bread pudding, Big Red soda from Texas, and skillet cornbread. This is serious eats, folks, and by the way, a bit hard on the pocketbook. Those are mighty pricey ribs, but worth every penny.
