|Dry Aged Barbecue|
That Hill Country is selling it might just mean that there is less demand from the high end of the market. At $49 a pound the beef is not cheap, especially compared to the rest of the menu, but it is fairly priced considering its quality. A similarly sized prime rib at a chophouse would cost about the same, but of course you would get white table cloth service and a proper wine list. Still, if you like dry aged beef Hill Country's prime rib is hard to argue with.
The eye was pleasingly tender, if a bit over cooked for my taste. Foolishly I let the cut languish underneath a mountain of brisket and beef ribs (both superb by the way), wrapped in wax paper and it got heated up. If you like your beef on the rarer side ask them to leave it unwrapped.
I am not sure how often Hill Country offer the cut as a special but it is well worth your time and money.
