Hill Country Chicken, Gramercy, New York City

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.


We loved the homey decor of the chicken joint. The plaid picnic and wallpaper, star light fixtures and cozy furniture was fun to look at._MG_3883

We ordered a pie cup (instead of a slices of pie) and a few pieces of chicken with a buttery biscuit. This was perfect way to share and sample the different chicken styles._MG_3884

 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.


We have to return to try the chicken salad, tenders and pie shake (WE KNOW!)Hill Country Chicken on Urbanspoon
