On our walk to breakfast we spotted folks walking into Hill Country Chicken and popped in for a quick breakfast. Although not pictured, the Sausage, Egg And Cheese Biscuit for $6.00 was buttery, savory and unbelievably good. The fresh cheesy eggs went well with the saltiness of the sausage patty. We vowed to return again for dinner and to sample the fried chicken.
There are two styles of chicken Classic or Mama’s Els’ Fried Chicken (skinless). We highly suggest ordering a Coop or meal deal with biscuit and sides at varying sizes and prices. The sides we sampled in line include the fried cheesy mashed potatoes (our favorite), corn salad and carrot-n-raisin slaw.
The Thigh ($3.50) was super juicy and nicely seasoned. Mama El’s had a nice spice rub and crust, however we prefer the Hill Country Classic skin and all. One of the best parts on the tray was that Buttermilk Biscuit, flakey, buttery and only $1.00.
Hill Country serves Apple Cheddar, Double Cherry, Banana Cream, Coconut Cream, Bourbon Pecan, Crème Brulee, Salted Margarita. Pig Pickin’, Whiskey Buttermilk. We decided on the Banana Cream pie covered in stars of whipped cream.
