Even though Texas is famous for its flavorful barbecue, it can be difficult to find great barbecue restaurant near Frisco. However, Hutchins BBQ on Preston Road offers some of the best barbecue in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

Driving up to Hutchins BBQ, it’s hard to miss the smokers outside, and it’s impossible to ignore the delicious smoky aroma once you are within 50 feet of the restaurant.

Once inside, customer will wait in line (and there’s always some sort of line) looking at a menu and prices that hang down. When it’s time order, you tell one of the employees what meat they would like and it will be chopped and placed on your tray. After this, it’s on to the sides where there are an array of options.

The decor of the restaurant gives off an authentic southern feel that goes with the food. And the food is worth any wait you might have to endure. The brisket is juicy and has a great smoky flavor made even better with a little extra barbecue sauce. Meanwhile, the pulled pork practically melts in your mouth with its smoky barbecue flavor. The meat hits doesn’t end there as the turkey, while not being known as a typical barbecue meat, is tasty as is the homemade sausage  with the jalapeño cheese sausage smoky, flavorful, cheesy, with a little bit of spice.

The deliciousness continues with the side dishes. The mac and cheese is creamy, cheesy, tasty, and everything in between and the fries are fresh and satisfying. The mashed potatoes and green beans live up to the standards of the other sides with the fried okra unexpectedly tasty.

Even with all that, there’s still dessert. And at Hutchins BBQ, it’s free with fresh peach cobbler and banana pudding, as well as soft serve ice cream available to top off the meal.

Hutchins BBQ features great food, friendly service and a cool atmosphere. It’s a little pricey with meats ranging from $7.00 to $9.00 for a half a pound, and $8.99 for a large side, but the delicious authentic barbecue is worth every single penny and will leave diners satisfied and full.

From smoky meats to tasty sides, everything at Hutchins is a hit.
