When you’re looking for authentic hometown barbecue, might we suggest Hutchins BBQ, a downtown McKinney restaurant a little off the beaten path at University (Hwy. 380) and Tennessee.
But, let’s talk food. What can you expect when you decide to haul it over to Hutchins BBQ? They’ve cooked up quite a mouth-watering menu, I have to say.
To begin with, the meat and sauce is where it’s at. They cook and flavor their meet over the burning embers of pecan wood. Pretty cool, right? We tried the brisket, ribs, and jalapeño sausage, topped it with Hutchins one-of-a-kind make-your-taste-buds-happy mind-blowing miracle sauce, and can say, without hesitation, it’s the best barbecue we’ve ever had.
And don’t worry if BBQ isn’t your thing. They have something else we think you’ll like: Catfish! You heard me. Hutchins does catfish very nicely. It’s no wonder Hutchins is one of McKinney’s finest downtown restaurants, that was also good enough to make Texas Monthly magazine’s Top 50 BBQ Joints.
If none of that suits your fancy, you’re in luck. Hutchins has a surprisingly deep offering on a simple menu that goes a little beyond barbecue. How about a hamburger with fries, grilled chicken, or a kicked-up baked potato? There’s a whole line of amazing veggies to round-out your meal and then it’s time for dessert. You can’t possibly think about leaving without bucklin’ down for handcrafted peach cobbler or banana pudding. If you have any room in your very satisfied tummy, that is. We suggest you pace yourself and just plan on coming back until you’ve experienced it all.
Now, Hutchins is BYOB, so if you want a beer you’ll have to bring it. Otherwise, there’s nothing like an icy cold soft drink to chase down a little spicy barbecue.
Finally, we just like the atmosphere. When you drive up, you immediately get that country feel of eating in an old barn with friends and family, when life was a little slower and memories were a little more memorable.
Hutchins doesn’t take reservations and you’ll need a group of fifteen or more before they’ll jump in the truck and bring these fine fixins to you and your party. They have plenty of parking in their own private lot and there’s even drive-thru service if that’s your thing.
So, McKinney’s best barbecue awaits you. And for a little incentive, click over to the homepage and download a $2 off coupon on all you can eat.
