This is my favorite Jamaican BBQ Restaurant EVER. I highly recommend their jerk chicken and potato salad. The potato salad isn't anything too fancy but its always so Yummy. The servers are always nice even when its just one person running the floor. If your in Pasadena for court or near the court house be sure to check this place out.
Shizniggity Sniggity Snappity!! – I enjoy their food here. I don't know if it's also the same chef cooking as the one in Top Chef this season, but at least I like the super fast way they get the food out to you, without feeling hurried. More accurately, I think I should say that the food comes out in successions, at the perfect timing.
Very Good BBQ & Jamaica Food @ Low Prices – 1. FOOD: They specialize in Barbeque & Jamaican food, and it is sooooo good! Their BBQ sauce is so good, they sell it to go so you use it at home. The portion size is very good. Their french fries are fresh (not greasy and limp like so many places). FOOD PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE. 2. SERVICE: They do a good job, and because the place is smaller, you can easily flag down a waiter. 3. PARKING: The restaurant has its own parking lot right there - Don't pay, its free for customers who eat at Hutch's.
4. Atmosphere: Its very unique, a home at one time, and very comfortable and nice.

Hutch's a must try – A+++ !! Quaint, homely and incredible service and food. and we got the sunday all you can eat and drink $14 with 20 % off through entertainment website! What a deal. SSSOOOO good, not 1 complaint, we were too busy eating
Smells delecious, average food – The chicken and ribs were just about average. But when you get your food, you just get really happy because the smell was heavenly. Then once you bite into your food, a little part of you just dies because it smelled so much better than it tastes. The chicken and ribs were both a little on the dry side, but not so much so that it gave you difficulty chewing and swallowing.
On a more positive note, the restaurant is a little hidden, and is quieter than most restaurants. You can whisper across the table and the person on the other side can hear you just fine. Our server was pretty nice as well, she recommended a pretty average piece of cake. The decor was pretty nice, its a cozy, tidy restaurant, with nice servers and its an alright date spot, if your significant other is into their meats. The prices wasn't unreasonable, since their proportions were pretty big. Also, their BBQ sauce is pretty good with fries too.
When you do go there, don't be afraid to park in the fee lot. If you tell them you're going to Hutch Restaurant, they don't charge you. Oh and if you like to be outside, you can ask to be seated in their porch, since there isn't heavy traffic, its not too bad to be outside on a cool night.
Unique flavored BBQ, don't expect KC Masterpiece! – I've been going there since the 1950's. My parents remember it as the Twizzle Twig Tea Room. As Hutch's, they have always been known for their BBQ meats and sandwiches. The used to have the best french fries until several owners ago. They are still ok, but were better. The cole slaw is the best in the world. The BBQ sauce is different from any I've ever had and there is no comparison so don't even try. Love it or hate it. I love it. It hasn't changed through the years and their BBQ beef sandwiches are still the best anywhere around and I always as for extra sauce. The meat is quite tender and the buns soft. This place used to be packed on weekends, but when the new owners closed down the patio and made a large open room of it, it lost alot of the charm. We used to love to sit outside, it was lovely. The interior has changed little, the staff not as attentive as the ladies back in the 60's, but for todays standards, the are still good and the food can't be beat. Go in with a clear mind and go in hungry!
great dining and under new management... – The food was excellent... the BBQ beef sandwich and potato salad was a perfect choice for my boyfriend and I'm hooked on the garlic roasted potatoes. The Jerk chicken linguini was delicious! The atmosphere has changed some since I had last been there but all for the better. We were greeted by the new manager and she was very friendly... she even sat down and talked with us for a bit!
Good 'ol homestyle bbq! – Great service and very relaxed, island feel ambience. The people are so nice. I had the BBQ pork sandwich and potato salad. The sandwich was excellent! Homestyle and tender! The potato salad was among the best I've had. Definitely a great place to eat!
the little house of bbq that could! – hard to believe i didn't know about this place before. had lunch there just this past weekend - tried the bbq pork sandwich and the potato salad... it was GREAT!! the potato salad was awesome... not heavy on the mayo like most places. the sandwich meat was tender and tasty. tried the roasted garlic potatoes as well - YUM!!! i almost finished the whole order by myself!! the chef and the servers were extremely friendly and accommodating as well.
most definitely should check out this little house of bbq!
