About

For on-site events, enjoy Hill Country's bi-level, 11,000 sf Texas roadhouse with towering, industrial-height ceilings, two full bars and capacity for 300 seated guests and 750 for standing cocktail receptions. We offer the entire space, the lower club level (120 guests seated / 225 guests cocktail), or several semi-private areas (10-60 guests). The lower club level is equipped with a stage and state-of-the-art sound and video equipment. Hill Country, with its long-sharing butcher block tables and rustic décor, is a unique alternative to stuff corporate events spaces and fussy formal dinging rooms. Hill Country presents its menu in a variety of service styles - buffet or family style for seated banquets and stationary and/or passed hors d'oeuvres for cocktail receptions. Country, Rock, Blues and even Karaoke Bands can be booked for private events as well.

For off-site events, Hill Country Catering & Events will recreate the barbecue market experience at your venue, home or backyard. In addition to offering our world class barbecue, sides and desserts, served with the warm, gracious hospitality of Texas and the South, we have created a signature aesthetic for your event that brings our barbecue market look and feel to your guests, creating an atmosphere that is unique, memorable and transporting.

Whether holding your event in the restaurant or out, Hill Country presents a fun and delicious alternative to stuffy halls and stiff event spaces, all the while ensuring the highest level of service.

    Best Rehearsal Dinner & Welcome Drinks Ever!

    We were blown away at how fantastic Hill Country was for our 60 person rehearsal dinner, and 125 person welcome drinks event. Our family and friends were raving about how good the barbecue was- the brisket, cornbread, sides, everything. Sarah Pena and her team at Hill Country are absolute pros, and all of the bartenders were an absolute delight. Hill Country provided great gingham napkins, burlap runners, candles, and tables/chairs for our event. We even converted the space mid-way through the event from a seated dinner to a cocktail/live band drinks evening, and the entire thing was flawless. Sarah was extremely responsive to all of my questions leading up to the event, the tasting was fantastic, and every detail was ready to go, organized, and taken care of throughout the evening. Sarah really had our best interest at heart when helping us make decisions that got us the most bang for our buck within our set budget. I felt like I was working with a wedding planner in working with Sarah, and whenever there were small requests the bartenders and AV teams took full ownership of helping our party and accommodating. I wasn't expecting 5-star service at a bbq market but this place delivers and then some. Sarah was there in person, the entire evening, making sure everything went off without a hitch. The boot barn room in the basement is perfect for large parties, the lights/mood of the room were perfect with minimal decor required, and the stage and setup for the band was fantastic. 10/10 recommend, loved every second of our event. Thank you to everyone who helped us on October 1st, we so appreciate it and want to do it all over again!

    Hill Country BBQ provided the greatest food and service for our wedding. The entire HC staff (waiters, bartenders, cooks, etc.) were so friendly and helpful throughout the entire night and made sure that our guests were never left hungry or thirsty.

    We worked with Rachael Carney from our initial inquiry about catering, through multiple revisions to our menu and contract (which she was always happy to adjust), and she was even ultimately there working on the day of to ensure that everything went smoothly! Rachael always provided us with prompt responses either via email or phone and was such a pleasure to work with. She even assisted us with our linen and glassware rental! Planning a wedding can be incredibly stressful but Rachael and the HC Staff made it such an enjoyable experience.

    The tasting was amazing and we got to sample every different appetizer, cut of meat, side dish, and dessert that they have to offer (tip: show up to this HUNGRY!). Most weddings that you go to the food is bland and forgettable. If you want a delicious, reasonably priced, and memorable meal then Hill Country BBQ is the way to go. I know that our friends and family will never forget the delicious dinner that they had on our wedding day!!

    We were very happy with the food and service that Hill Country BBQ provided for our wedding. I mean, the mac and cheese alone sold us!

    All of our guests loved that we decided on Hill Country for our wedding. Christina and Rachael both were super helpful throughout the planning process and revised our proposal a bunch of times without batting an eye. As the guest count began to get finalized, they took the time to meet with us at the venue to hammer out the details. Rachael and the Hill Country staff were also very attentive during the reception and made sure that both my husband and I had everything we needed.

    Would totally recommend them to anyone! :)

Shame on me for having left this endorsement sooner. To say I love Hill Country is an understatement...perhaps lust is a more appropriate term. :-) I'm a BBQ snob by default, admittedly, so my standards are absurdly high. Hill Country blew me away...and also got me addicted to their deep fried mac n cheese. Yes, it's as amazing as it sounds. They're legit.

I'm STILL drooling over Hill Country's food ... the best mac-n-cheese EVER. Everything was so fresh, the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating to all the guests, and I overhead many raves of the food from the guests. As the photographer for the wedding I felt very much taken care of and appreciated. Thank ya'll so much!
