“Simple and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

I went to the Butt hutt via a friend's advice and I'm glad I did so. The food is really good and the portions are a good match for the price. The service is great and really work to make sure you are taken care of. It may be a little misleading from the outside, but you will not be disappointed.

“Best Brisket and Fried Pickles ever tasted!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

We (my wife and I) always travel to Athens for lunch and we always end up at the Butt Hutt. It's kind of out of the way but the drive is worth it. I am a BGE cooker and can turn our a wonderful brisket but it takes about two days from buying it until it is served for guests.

Butt Hutt takes all the worry out of this....just call ahead to make sure that they have it. First time we went, " no brisket" so we ate pulled pork sandwiches instead. I went to pay the bill and there was "No Charge" written on the ticket. These folks know their game when serving the public. We always go back every time we are in Athens.

“Very friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We ate here after a football game. Ample parking and plenty of seating inside. Hostess, server, and manager very friendly with all of them stopping by each table often to make sure everyone was all right and refilling drinks.

We started with the "meat skins" which are pork rinds, with lemon pepper seasoning. They came to the table still popping and crackling. The fried pickles were outstanding, with a perfect breading to pickle ratio, golden, and not at all greasy.

The barbeque is finely chopped and a bit dry. Sauces range from a reddish vinegar to sweet to hot. The fried okra was very good. The onion rings were a bit greasy. The mac and cheese seemed like it was made with canned cheese sauce. The "stew" is a brunswick stew, not the usual hash. Some of us liked it, some of us did not....

All in all we would eat here again.

“Great Q”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I have not been here in quite some time but the Q they sell is some of the best around. There product is not the typical vinegar soaked stuff you find in the south. Very good and don't forget the killer sides.
