“Good little BBQ joint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.

“Decent fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Pretty good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

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 on the sandwich, not so much on the pork. For the price, we kind of expected a bigger (thicker) sandwich.

“Not impressed....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

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 feel. Probably just happens to be where locals hang out, thus all the cars. Has to be the comraderie, it can't be for the food. Benton, you can do better...
