Hutchin's BBQ, McKinney


sampled 10/29/22 about 1 pm

My Mrs had some friends in town and we talked them into meeting us at Hutchin's in McKinney.  There was about a 30 minute wait but the food was well worth it.  They now have their Texas Twinkies every day instead of just on weekends.  The twinkies had awesome smoke flavor in the bacon but there was a bit too much cream cheese for me.  I'd opt for more brisket and less cream cheese.  I got the end piece off a fresh brisket and it was awesome!  The ribs were tender and juicy and the sausage had a decent jalapeno bite.

Hurtado BBQ, Arlington


visited 10/13/22 about 11 am

We had a friend in town who wanted some BBQ so we took a trip down to Hurtado in Arlington.  The street in front of the restaurant was closed for construction but we found a parking spot nearby and wound our way around the barriers and into the joint.  The construction must be impacting their business as there were only two folks in line in front of us.  That's too bad, because the food was excellent, as always.  The brisket and ribs were perfectly smoked and the stuffed jalapenos were outstanding.  The casing on the sausage was a bit chewy and there didn't seem to be much spice in the jalapeno sausage.  I grabbed some extra brisket and Texas twinkies to go.
