You'll note that brisket can be had lean or slightly more fatty, and recall that fat means additional flavor. Your meat comes with crackers or white bread, both nice mopping-up options, especially if you go heavy on the sauces. Side dishes are fairly standard, ranging from black-eyed peas to macaroni (with or without chili) and sweet potatoes. Desserts are predictable, whether banana pudding or the familiar take on the pecan pie. The beer selection is below average for Manhattan, and you can order cocktails, wine and all other drinks at your table.

On the other hand, since faux authenticity and sparklin'-clean floors delight New Yorkers of all stripes, Hill Country certainly succeeds in recreating this Austin legend.
