I was in Austin for a conference and my son came up to go to dinner with me. We went to County Line on Bee Cave Road. The first thing you notice is the view--sit on the patio if you can! It is magnificent; they say you can see for 20 miles and I am not about to argue with... More

We discovered County Line on the Lake a few years ago & liked the food, but since we are now Weight Watchers the sides were a problem for us. County Line on the Hill seems to have healthier option including a very good mixed green salad with a Smoked Pecan Vinaigrette. We really like the smoked turkey & hubby likes... More

This landmark has been around a long time and I've eaten here several times over the last 3-4 years. I must say the food has gone down hill every year. This last visit was too much. I've eaten at chain diners with better food. The beef was sopping in sauce and mushy like it had been reheated several times. The... More

We stumbled in here by accident--sits up on cliffs with great patio dining. Good food, reasonable prices and good service. Could spend the whole day there sipping cold beer and enjoying the views.

This restaurant has two locations. I imagine the food and service are similar at both locations but we choose this one for the amazing view. It is so relaxing to sit here enjoying scrumptious BBQ and looking out over the landscape. Food was delicious. I had a 3 meat combo and particularly enjoyed the pulled pork and the lean brisket....

We visited on a Sunday night when many other restaurants are closed. We got seated right away, inside since it was a chilly afternoon. There are no heaters on the patio, but you can see the amazing view from the inside. The BBQ was great, particularly the beef and pork ribs. They offer two sides with the meats, and have... More

Visiting Austin, took the family to County Line, based on its reputation. Not disappointed, but came away feeling it doesn't quite live up to the reputation. Had marbled brisket and jalapeño sausage. Both good, but not great. BBQ sauce, similar, good but not great. Sides were okay. Breading on fried okra was heavier than my liking. Bread is excellent. Just... More

I went with two other women and we order the 5 meat family style dinner. It was delicious. Everything was delicious. We left fully satisfied that we had an Austin BBQ experience.

Went here for dinner on Valentine's night and had some of the best Texas BBQ that I've ever had. I ordered the 3 meat platter and had some great brisket, pulled pork, and chicken. The sides were great as well. The staff at this restaurant was fantastic, second only to the view from the back deck. I only wish I... More

County Line BBQ on the Hill is truly an experience for the senses: the smells are amazing, the tastes are even amazinger, and the views are to die for! Try to schedule your meal around sunset for the ultimate romantic dinner. I liked that you can order the brisket lean or fatty, they'll cut it any way you want, and... More
