Country Line on the Hill

Since 1975, Country Line on the Hill has served delicious barbecue in a historic speakeasy.

In the 1970s, Joe and his friend Porky decided to open a barbecue joint after a few beers and an okay meal at a local eatery. They decided that Porky Jo's didn't roll off the tongue as well as Pok-e Jo's and after experimenting with recipes and rubs, they began serving customers. It quickly became a neighborhood favorite and menu items include Pork Ribs, Spicy Texas Pulled Pork Sandwiches, and Turkey Breast.
