Our barbecue at County Line On The Hill was excellent. It offers all the customary barbecue dishes, but prepared their own special way.

This is great for the family or for a romantic dinner for 2. Some of the best HILL Country views available. The brisket is my choice and the sauce is to die for. Our waiter was great. You better be hungry because the portions are...More

The view was spectacular and the food was delicious! I had the chicken which was good and moist. My husband had the brisket and sausage. We were very satisfied. For dessert we loved the bread pudding with ice cream!

Have been coming to the County Line for 24 years - although haven't been for the last 3 - and the food and service is still excellent. Thoroughly recommend it for anyone visiting Austin. The fillet steak is perfectly cooked every time.
