Good local small town joint!! The breakfast and lunch are awesome, they serve much more than BBq. Diner fare, all made to order, country ham, city ham, hot homemade bisquits! Burgers, sandwiches, plate specials. Open for dinner....but we prefer the breakfast and lunch fare.

Perfect example of small town, family owned Restaurant. Friendly waitresses and great home cooked food. Love the BBQ and daily specials. Up for a great burger? Try the Hutch burger! Or the cheeseburger melt. Whatever you try it will be yummy.

Stopped here for breakfast and got the Hutchens big breakfast. There was no way I could have finished this. Eggs, pancakes, sausage, biscuits and gravy. I had wanted to return for dinner one evening, but they were closed earlier than I had expected on a Saturday evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We usually come through Benton at lunch time so it's busy but they do try and get you seated right away. The food is great and so is the service. Cheese Burger melt and fries...Delicious! Breakfasts are good too! Worth a short wait.

Food was ok but not worth a return visit. Ribs were mediocre. Beans,slaw,and hush puppies were good. The rest was greasy.

This is one of those local gems that is not to be missed. Their BBQ is excellent - I especially like the pulled pork. Stop by for breakfast - excellent prices and a really good way to start the day. Their waitresses are always pleasant too.
