This is my favorite place in this area to go for barbecue. From the moment you enter the restaurant, you immediately smell the sweet aroma of western style barbecue and know you are in for a great meal. All of their sides are delicious, and...More

Went to Hillbillys tonight before seeing the Christmas lights in Mcadenville, NC. Good food, great service and an awesome senior and military discount. You should try this place.

Can't decide what to get. The ribs are delicious, so is the chicken and your mouth waters for the barbecue before you get in the door. We discovered it by accident and go back on purpose .

If you are over 55, there's a bargain to be had on Wednesdays at Hillbilly's. Their senior menu is half-price, and it's quite reasonable to begin with. All meals come with two sides and hush puppies. Our table of three had complete meals with a...More
