From breakfast to lunch to supper .. this is the local legend of Benton... the omelettes and the Philly cheese steak are two of our favorites. Barbecue is excellent and the crinkle fries are delicious as well...

Prices have gotten out of hand. Everything appears to come from a can or a jar. I suppose that is the trend in the business. Not a place I would go out of my way for. As a friend told me once, "its just food". I will give them kudos on their fried fish. It is good.

Great family style restaurant.Bar-B-Que is very good.They also have a great breakfast and plate lunches.There are many home style sides to choose from.Prices are reasonable and you will not go home hungry.This is not a chain restaurant.It is also the restaurant featured in Coal Miner's Daughter,the Loretta Lynne move.

Great prices and very good BBQ. Hand battered onion rings and daily specials. Their house sauce is really good and the turkey plate melted in my mouth.

Reasonably good BBQ. Variety if "plate lunch" specials daily. Courteous, responsive, and friendly staff. Older facility could use some updating but it is a local meeting place for regulars.

The diner itself was a little run down, but that was part of it's charm (read the history of the place on the menu). Overall the BBQ was quite good, but the rest of it was just okay. The service was very good and when we visit the area again, I am sure we will stop here. Plenty of turkey... More

We were looking forward to checking out Hutchens, and were a little disappointed. BBQ was ok. Breakfast was ok, if you take away that canned gravy. Biscuit was excellent, though. Eggs not as I ordered, and my iced tea to go was supposed to be UNsweet, I guess that's outside the norm. The whole place does have that greasy spoon... More

We happened on to Hutchen's while aimlessly driving around. On the outside, it looks like most ma and pa greasy spoons and that continued inside. After reading the story of it's history on the back of the menu, the fact that they are famous for their pulled pork and barbeque, I had some of the best barbeque ever. My daughter... More

I LOVE this place. I always get the small BBQ sandwich, corn nuggets, and mashed taters. Breakfast is good too. Don't go in expecting the ritz. This place knows that it is a local restaurant, and it is fine with that.
