'tis the season:)

Happy Holidays to all and wishing you a spectacular New Year!

Music is one of the things that Austin does best.

Over the years The Hilltop has hosted music legends such as Willie Nelson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Asleep at the Wheel, Jerry Jeff Walker, Kevin Fowler and Toby Keith ( among others).
