The buffet had a great variety of food. There is something for everyone, even desserts. I would return to this restaurant.

We were recommended this place by the front desk person at our hotel. Apparently he doesn't know good Mexican food. I've tasted better TV DINNERS. The evening we went was a buffet It looked unappetizing to say the least,so we decided to order off of the menu. They offered a choice as to fried flour or corn tortillas for the... More

Mediocre food, slow service, weak margaritas. We've been there several times with friends but have yet to have a "wow" moment.

Any time is good but the buffet at lunch or dinner time is my favorite. Authentic Mexican and lots of seating. Service is always good.

This is certainly one of the more popular spots for locals. I've never quite understood that. It's definitely OK food. Kind of shabby decor -- if you can call it decor. Nonetheless, it's a place you ought to experience, assuming you're eating more than one meal in Hutch.

This is a popular place that we have been going to for years with a group of friends. I have yet to order from the menu because the buffet for $8.95 is hard to beat. It includes salad bar, hot dish bar, soups, and dessert bar. I saw two kinds of soup the night we went and more food that... More

The food is terrific, and the service is wonderful at this family owned business! We always stop when we're in town and highly recommend this place. Very reasonably priced! Chat with the servers, they're very informative and can steer you toward the best dishes although they're all great! Get the buffet, something new each day, yet they maintain some specialities!

Thank Paula D
