    Well this hillbilly doesn't take offense to the term
    I find that most whom use it as a derogatory term, prove themselves to be psuedo intellectual.

    It's all about context. In this case it looks to be the restaurant's name so no big deal. If it's said in a spiteful way then like any other term it's derogatory.

    Calling someone a hillbilly is generally an insult as it insinuates you are backward and or stupid from inbreeding.
    Paul and Paddy did a very good job of grubbing the chicken. If you ever get a chance to eat Mexican corn on the cob, do try it. It is very good. Growing up in central California, I had easy access to almost every type of ethnic foods from all over the world. I was food spoiled.
    I really want to go over to Ireland to see where my ancestors came from. Of course I should go to England to see where my namesake came from.

    (1) Fried chicken in Texas doesn't count unless your Granny cooks it. (2) I didn't see any actual chicken parts. (3) You should have tried Chicken Fried STEAK! (4) Chicken "tenders" are made with pork and beef, along with chicken.

    I think that hillbilly was a derogatory term originally. Mountain people called themselves mountain people or just people. People might be proud of hillbilly now but I don't think it's a complimentary name. It connotes ignorance and lack of education, also marrying your cousin and not having any shoes. You are poor, stupid and dumb. Yeah I know I said it twice.

    By the way, Im not some Yankee. I live in and love Appalachia. I live in the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountain intersection, in a way. Its easier defined by culture rather than maps.

  • Drew

    It is definitely offensive. The funny thing about Irish people using that word is that it was originally used against southern Appalachians, who live in a region that was heavily settled in early America by mostly ulster-scots, Scotch-Irish and Irish fleeing the hard times. When you make fun of hillbilllys, you are mostly making fun of your own ancestors that were lucky enough to make it to America during really tough times in your own region. It was a big thing if a small community could raise the money to send one of their own to America. It not only helped financially but it gave people living in that community the belief that things could get better for their families.

    Hillbilly is to Appalachian people like n*gger is to the black community and hunkie is to Eastern European immigrants. Acceptable within the community as a term of endearment, but when used by outsiders, not so much. Especially if used in a derogatory, elitist or detrimental tone or manner. The interesting thing about all three of these words is that they all started out as negative terms against their respective groups of people, but were embraced by them over time and essentially "de-fanged", for lack of a better term. I'm proud to be a member of 2 of the aforementioned groups, myself. I'm only a 3rd generation American who comes mostly from Eastern European ancestry and I grew up in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains (in western Pennsylvania. Allegheny County, actually), which are a part of the larger Appalachian Mountain range.

    Here in the states 'hillbilly'is both a positive and a negative depending how it is used and who you are talking to. Om the case of the restaurant it is pure sales and false Americana. Like "Irish Pub" would be here.

    I know I’m late, but as a proud southerner, hillbilly is fine. It’s like anything else though. It’s all in how you use it. “How ya doin, ya ole hillbilly!?” That’s fine. “You stupid, inbred hillbilly!” Not so fine and could lead to a fight.
    Have a fantastic day folks!

    Here's a hint if you want to win an eating contest...Don't Drink anything with the food during teh fills your belly and takes up space you need to store more food. As for the word Hillbilly, I think those who are not offended by it don't live in the Hills and the ones who live in areas that are mainly Hills or mountain ranges might take offense by it. To call someone from the Hills a Hillbilly imply's that they are ignorant, stupid inbreds that marry their Sisters and Cousins...or that most never make it past the 6th grade. The Truth is that they don't feel a need to live by societies rules...they may be ignorant of how city folk lives and act but they are far from ignorant. They don't marry their Sisters or cousins...they marry a local girl most likely someone they went to school with, fell in love and had children. They're hard workers but there's not a lot of opportunities for them living way up on the Mountian or in the hills. Many do finish their educations like everyone else who spent all 12 years in school. Mountain and Hill people have their own code that they live by. But if you were to run into one in town and called them a HillBilly you'd better have a good head start on them. They're liable to knock you out. hahaha They don't take anybody's sh*t.

    Hillbilly is OK, at least if a person is an actuall hillbilly or descended from hillbillys and proud. Plus, tradionally traditionally speaking they are the Scots Irish (protestant Ulster Scots) settlers in the Appalachian mountains.... So, not so Texas, but some texans are indeed descended from Hillbillies.

    Is "Hillbilly" a derogatory term? I think it depends on the way it's used. If someone uses it in a put down, "He's just an ignorant hillbilly" then yes it is derogatory. Hillbilly was once just a name for people who lived in rural, mountainous regions and was not considered an insult and many people from the Appalachian mountains still refer to themselves as hillbillies. However there's a lot of people who love to put others down and can turn anything into an insult. My mother had a great explanation for those types of people. When she told me all the ethnic, regional and religious slurs people use, (I'd never heard them at home so I used one I heard while playing in the alley and almost got my behind beaten), I was appalled! "Why are people so mean Mommy?" She thought a minute and replied, "I don't know but maybe they aren't very smart and don't feel good about themselves so they put other people down to make them feel superior." My mother was a wise woman!
