Washington DC: Hill Country Barbecue Market

This past Sunday was call for a celebration as this girl got a new job! Very excited to be moving on to the next step of my life so my mom and Jeff took me out to dinner at Hill Country BBQ for congratulations. 

Mom, Jeff & I ordered the BBQ platter $27 ($20 on Sundays) and it came with Brisket, 2 beef ribs, 2 pork ribs and 1/4 of a chicken. The brisket was delicious (I recommend spending and extra $2 for the moist), the winner of the meats. Everything else was pretty good, although the ribs were a little to fatty for me. This combo was huge, I would recommend it for 2 people. Teddy ordered the Short Rib special of the night (not pictured) and he said the rub was amazing but it was a very fatty meat. 
We all got a couple of sides. The Mac & Cheese was amazing, cheesy and pretty perfect. We also got a cucumber salad, coleslaw & baked beans which were all good. My mom really wanted to try the chile deviled eggs but she said they were kinda of a let down.
Overall this place was pretty good. It's not my favorite BBQ but then again I don't like bones in my meat so the only thing I really enjoyed here (besides the amazing mac and cheese) was the brisket. Everyone else liked their meals though. This place can get pretty packed at night so you may want to make a reservation.
