Melt in your mouth brisket and beef ribs! I'm a native Texan and rarely take the time to review BBQ online, but Hurtado serves the best brisket in the DFW area, in my opinion. We happened to catch them late on a Saturday afternoon when many items had sold out, but we had heard great things and wanted to give them a try. We had sliced brisket, beef ribs, burnt ends, and his potato salad. INCREDIBLE!!! Oh, and the homemade sauce - perfection. We will certainly be back soon. More...

The beef rib falls of the bone, delicious and massive. Brisket was our second favorite, smoked perfectly. Also loved the nacho sausage - full of flavor and cheese. Mac and cheese + charo beans were a great choice, looking back I would try the elote. BBQ sauce is great too if you want it! More...

Amazing BBQ. Had the pleasure of experiencing this place while I was in town for a football game. They did not disappoint. The brisket was sooooooooooo good. I wish I was able to go back for the other items on the menu. More...

Amazing food, I’m very picky about trying bbq but I have to say that I am very impressed. Every thing that I ate has amazing flavor and very moist and falls apart.

Yum yum yum. Beef ribs are incredible, by far the best I have ever had. Love the innovative sausages and the burgers. Oh the burgers.

Best frickin' bbq all around arlington! Brisket was really moist and tender...the flavor was great and the nacho sausages were amazing! They were nice enough to give me some topo chico for free when we ran out of big red that we bought and the owner(I think) came out and greeted us! Overall, I would definitely come back! More...

Family ate there today around 4. The food was spectacular. Beef ribs on point. Sausage was savers. Pork ribs were absolutely flavorful and moist. This place is going to be awesome. Not just because of the food, but because the owners are very nice, helpful and gratuitous. They made the experience 110% better. Gonna try to make this a new family restaurant. More...

The BEST BBQ out there! My husband and I decided to make a trip from Houston to try out hurtados after seeing all the drool worthy photos we see on Instagram and we were not disappointed. Brandon and his staff are super helpful and friendly. The brisket was very flavorful and moist and the burnt ends are TOO DIE FOR!! We also got the hatch Mac and cheese and the elote which were also very flavorful. I could eat there every weekend if I could. The only thing I have to complain about is changing our perspective on bbq. Every other bbq taste mediocre now after having hurtados. You can clearly tell they love what they do and you can taste it in the food. We will be making more trips from Houston soon! More...

We stumbled upon this food truck, soon to be a permanent building. So glad we did!! The BBQ is amazing! I had the pulled pork sandwich and the beef brisket. The BBQ sauce is amazing g but you almost didn't want to dredge the meat through it because the meat is so good au natural. Practically no fat. Get the potato salad instead of the chips, much better. Huge thanks to Legal Draft for the  beer . We'll definitely be back, YOU should try it soon. More...

Easily some of the best BBQ around, best in Arlington in my opinion. Everything is amazing there from their brisket to the sides, down to the salsa (all in the details). Was able to get some of their mango habanero burnt ends they were featuring and damn! they were good! Highly recommend going. Can't wait till they open up the brick and mortar. More...

Not a fan of eating al fresco in 100* heat, but my husband and I tried out Hurtado's today.  We had the brisket, both lean and moist, and the spare ribs with slaw and beans.  The meat was great. Very tender and flavorful. The beans were exceptionally good, too, as they were well seasoned and full of bacon.  The slaw is HOT. I'm talking eyes tearing, nose running, painfully spicy.  However, other than the heat, it didn't have much flavor. Definitely need a free refill fountain drink system for that slaw. One bottle of TopoChico didn't cut it.  Until it cools down, I'd recommend take out. More...

First timers and we absolutely loved it! We can't wait to go back! almost every bbq place we've been to, the turkey has been dry, but not at Hurtado! I personally told them they have the best, moist turkey I've ever had at a bbq restaurant. The people are also so nice! Way to go guys! I would gladly stand the heat again to enjoy your food, but can't wait until you're in your new place! Thank you for an unbeatable bbq experience! More...

We're from out of town and had lunch here before coming to the baseball game. The people were very friendly, there was music playing and picnic tables to sit down at. Everything was so good!! They handed out samples of brisket and ribs while we waited to order. We had moist brisket and barbacoa sausage with hatch chile Mac and cheese which wasand the smoked elotes, also bomb. But my favoritest was the strawberry cream cupcake. It was so sooooo good!! I'm coming back in two weeks and will definitely stop by again for another! I'm glad we stopped here! More...

A lovely bbq place. I had the brisket and I can say without a doubt amazing brisket. My friend had the quail and said it was good, as well. Unfortunately, we didn't get any sides as they as sold out. Which is to be expected of a top quality bbq joint. More...

It's Saturday and time for another stop for some great barbecue. I've been seeing more and more social media posts and reviews on the web for Hurtado Barbecue and all the high praise is definitely warranted. All the food was incredible, but the quail, brisket and beef rib really standout as well as the turkey. Sounds like turkey is new to the menu and we were glad we were able to get some today. The cupcakes (we got 1 of each today, banana pudding and strawberry cream) were perfect to end the meal. Brandon Hurtado made a point to come by, introduce himself and we all talked Barbecue for a little bit. Also brought by some turkey and ribs so we could check it out and snap some pics, he didn't have to do that but we were thankful and appreciated that he did that and included us in thesmoke meat journey :) He was working on his birthday, so thank you for that and Happy Birthday!! His entire crew were very nice and you can see the dedication in each and every one of them. We will definitely be back and can't wait for the new brick and mortar they will be going to later in the year!Quick update for a stop on Friday evening. The smoked burger was incredible! The tri-tip tacos were as well and that green sauce is so good and I never like green sauces lol So now I wish we could go over 5 stars. Just go and enjoy it all! More...

We are here in Dallas for a short weekend. After our Spartan race hungry and in need of food and a beer. We stopped in for BBQ the smoker smelt amazing as we walked up to the truck. The staff was friendly and answered all our questions about the menu. We ordered the Burnt end pork belly and the beef rib. And beans. They had run out of Mac and cheese by the time we got there. It was Devine! Be aware the beef ribs are sold by the pound so it can be pricy but well worth it! We got our fix of traditional Texas BBQ. Thank you! Oh and I forgot to mention if you order a drink you get a koozie. More...

This is now my new favorite place and hope to see you all there a lot when the store front opens! BBQ done right:) More...

If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I absolutely would. They have the best sliced brisket and pork ribs I've EVER had. Being born and raised in Texas, we have tried plenty of bbq but this place takes the prize. It was so amazing I didn't even need barbecue sauce for it. The meat was so moist and tender it falls apart in your mouth. This will definitely be our go to for barbecue. More...

First time eating here and I thought the meat was Amazing!!! Tender with great flavors. We bought the El Jefe Platter and I enjoyed all the meats,  the side we chose was the green chili mac n cheese. It was Ok. I felt for $25 it should come with rolls/and or bread. By far one of my favorite BBQ joints around. More...

It should be against the law to be this delicious. I don't know where to begin. One my my barbecue-enthusiast friends recommended this place to me and he never exaggerates so I had to give it a shot. Boy am I glad I did. The brisket was the best I've had in Arlington, period. So juicy, flavorful, falling apart and still with a dark, smoky well-seasoned bark. This is not a simple barbecue place, they go all out. My friend and I split the el jefe platter. For $25 we got brisket, burnt ends, mac and cheese, sausage and quail. We went ahead and got the smoked elote, too. The mac and cheese was super creamy and flavorful. It was a little peppery on its own but it came topped with crushed takis and that really took it to another level. The quail tasted just like chicken so if you're a little hesitant to try it I'd say go for it! My friend loved the burnt ends, sausage and elote. She and I left our tray completely empty, except for some grease LOL. I will definitely be back. More...

In my opinion we finally have some really fantastic BBQ in Arlington. I finally made it out in time for the pork belly burnt ends, and they didn't disappoint. Tender and so much flavor. Everything on the tray was great. The El Jefe is a great thing to order if you want to try some of all the meats. Rib and brisket were tender and also had great flavor. No sauce needed. The elote was some of the best I've had. Mac and cheese was great. I don't have a negative thing to say. Already ready to head back. More...

Randomly tried Hurtado Barbecue while at Division Brewery and was incredibly impressed!As an avid barbecuer myself, I quickly realized the quality of their brisket:super tender, well marbled with flavorful fat, amazing black crust that wasn't overly salty.  Most importantly, their bbq required no sauce to appreciate the amazing flavor. You can tell that these guys cooked the meat low and slow as I was able to tear it apart with my fingers; no knives required!Another great thing to try is their HOMEMADE sausage! Not sure what kind of meat they used (maybe beef/pork blend), but their sausage was juicy and had a great smoke flavor. Not overly salty nor spicy like kielbasa, but just pure home-smoked goodness.Hurtado Barbecue paired amazingly with the NewEnglandIPA I was sipping.  Thanks for giving me a true slice of quality Texas culture!

Pre-ordered & picked up my first order from Hurtado's today. Unlike Lucy, I think this brisket may be the best I have ever had. It just MELTS in your mouth. I didn't even put any sauce on it for my first serving! We also got one of each side, brisket sausage, pork spare ribs, & burnt ends. I am  dying to try the burgers, beef rib (HUGE), & meatballs! Thank you Brandon & Hayley for being so awesome & know that the food is just SO yummy! :) We'll be back & congrats on the building contract signing! More...

My hubby and I are BBQ fanatics. After reading amazing reviews on yelp, we knew we had to go check them out. We went when there was an Art Festival going on, so the line was longer than expected and seating was limited. We ordered wagyu burnt ends, beef rib, pork ribs, brisket, hatch chili Mac & cheese, and smoked elotes.The Wagyu burnt ends were AMAZING. We wanted moreeee. The beef rib was salty, chewy, and didn't have a nice smoke to it. Wasn't a big fan (pecan lodge beef rib is wayyyyy better). The pork ribs and brisket were also salty, but they were good!!The Mac & Cheese and Smoked Elotes were huge disappointment. Did not taste good at all. Didn't even finish it. The elotes was a corn a cob with no flavor. More...

My girlfriend and I went by here this past Saturday. The people were super friendly and the atmosphere was amazing. We ordered the platter which allowed us to try a little of everything and I ordered THE BIGGEST BEEF RIB BONE THEY HAD!!! The flavor was great but of all of the food the BEEF RIB was heaven! Tender moist and full of flavor. The only reason I couldn't give them a full 5 stars was because they forgot our spare ribs that came with the platter. But we will be back for sure to have fun with these folks. Thank you Hurtados for a great first time experience. More...

Absolutely my favorite barbecue place in the Dallas/ft worth area. I've been to this location multiple times and they consistently put out a superior product. The brisket is a must when you visit, always moist and with a unique flavor that truly sets them apart from everyone else, but everything on the menu is fantastic, I highly recommend the breakfast tacos if they have them, the sausage and the beef ribs. For sides the hatch Chile mac and elotes are amazing. To be honest, I've never had anything on the menu I didn't like so just come and order it all! More...

Wow..... tucked away near the brewery, this place is the definition of a hidden gem. Authentic bbq with brisket so tender and moist it melts in your mouth. But don't just stop at the brisket...sausage, Mac n cheese, beans everything is on point here. Additionally and just as important, the service/hospitality was amazing. The owner himself is the in kitchen and comes out to check how everyone's enjoying their meals so you can really tell the care that goes into the food here. More...

So glad we found this place! The food is absolutely amazing  I had the ribs with charro breads and corn while my partner had the brisket with Mac and cheese. The food was D E L I C I O U S  not to mention there is a brewery right next door. The combination of both hit just the right spot  There was not much left in our plate after but we HAD to ask for a to go box; there was no way I was leaving any food behind. They were super friendly and helpful, we will definitely be coming back soon! More...

I am a BBQ guy and usually only do my own thing, but I have to say I’ve definitely met my match. The beef rib was the best I’ve EVER had including mine.

Most definitely will be back soon!! More...

Hot damn mama jam, this place is hands down the most fresh and flavorful barbecue around! My first experience here was having their pulled pork taco and I was stunned by the flavor and quality of the meat and coleslaw. You can tell that everything is truly sourced locally and made fresh. But let me tell you bout my new best friend. His name is house sausage with a side of hatch Mac n cheese. Hands down the absolute BEST sausage I have ever had in my life. Unlike typical sausage that is encased is a rough exterior, this sausage is almost melts in your mouths it is encased with cheese and peppers and pairs perfectly with the hatch Mac n cheese and the Serrano coleslaw! I could eat the coleslaw by the pound full as well. It's completely fresh and seems like it has a vinegar base rather than the typical dairy and heavy base. This coleslaw is nice and light and has a nice kick on the back end. I also tried their house made pickles that are habanero garlic. They go well on their own, but I can see these being amazing on a burger!But the Mac n cheese. It is perfectly cheesy, the noodles aren't over cooked, and the hatch amount is just enough to give it a well balanced flavor. Everything about this place is what you want in barbecue and local food. Brandon is doing things right and making Arlington a tastier and happier place. Bonus points for being next to a brewery! More...

OMG! This some good Texas BBQ right here! Smoked, people, it's SMOKED! That's what I've been longing for and I've found it at Hurtado.These folks are kind and knowledgeable of their craft! They explained to us how each meat was smoked and marinated. It's all from scratch, the sauce, the pickles, the ribs, the sausage, and all! You can really tell when you taste it too.Conveniently located in the heart of Arlington, I was surprised to see it's a food truck with a pit attached. I would've sworn it was a restaurant by the reviews but they've got standing room tables and you can dine inside of Division Brewing!You have to get here earlier in the day to experience the entire menu. We arrived around 3 and were still able to enjoy the ribs and sausage. They also have chicken and more sides! I wanted to shoot my boyfriend in the foot for ordering a $35 beef rib. It was really the hugest rib I've seen in my life. I joked about it being the one God took from Adam to make Eve, lol. I just can't see how ONE beef rib can cost that much. They charge by the weight, the bone was still attached and probably is what caused it to weigh/cost so much! He said it had a bit of fat on it too. I ordered him to order the spare ribs next time. We'd prefer to leave with full bellies and full wallets, lol!The sausage is sooo good! It's made with poblano peppers and cheddar cheese. The casing is wrapped well, not greasy at all, and sticks with the meat without tearing all apart! Yummy! The customer service in addition to the food was phenomenal so I'm sure we'll be back. I do plan on being more mindful of our spending though. Spent $60 on what's pictured below.They also have Flour and Faith cupcakes on hand made from scratch and melt in your mouth. I tried the Banana Pudding which has actual pudding in the center. The young lady whom made them even tossed in a free Strawberry Cream one. Very tasty! More...

I came by before the Rangers game, and I got to say, Brandon's sausage was amazing. The brisket, too, was just spectacular. If you read this, I recommend you to arrive early to get some grub before the food runs out. I shall return another weekend for more of this amazing food. More...

Hands down the best barbecue in the metroplex!  The brisket we had was tender, juicy, perfectly seasoned, and then expertly smoked!  The one thing that I was apprehensive of was the quail, simply because I have never had smoked quail before, but my hesitation quickly gave way to satisfaction as soon as I took my first bite!  How have I made it this long without smoked quail in my life?!  The poblano sausage was an artistic blend of both cheesy and spicy flavors, that literally melted in my mouth.  The Hatch Chili Mac n Cheese was incredible!  For the first time, I cannot find anything negative to say about this meal!  Insanely good!

Southside Chicago BBQ joints could learn a lot from these guys !!They need to quit their day jobs and just do BBQ !!Came on Opening Day Cubs/Rangers for their "tailgate party".Brisket was outstanding !!Pulled pork nachos were unbelievable !!And, to have a craft beer with their elotes is another level.I can see why they sell out !!

Heim and Pecan Lodge could learn a thing or two from this place. Amazing brisket with a outstanding peppercorn crust. Top knotch chicken quarters are a must have.

Y'all. This is the best BBQ we've had in DFW. My hubby and I ordered the El Jefe platter so we could try a little bit of everything. He said the quail and the ribs were fantastic. I loved the brisket & the burnt ends. He preferred the mac & cheese while I'm team elotes all the way. We split the sausage which my husband especially loved because it was truly made from scratch. Hope to visit here many more times & see this place grow like crazy! More...

Had Hurtado Thursday after rangers opening day tailgating at Division brewery. I've lived in Texas my entire life and have gotten so irritated in the past with so many BBQ joints that are just not any good. Well this certainly changes it. This is hands down the best brisket I have ever eaten and I have had several of the Texas top 50. Good job guys and keep up the good work. More...

There's a reason this place sells out within a few hours! UH MAY ZING BBQ. Drool worthy sides. Delicious cupcakes. The burnt ends are heaven on earth. Their Mac and cheese is super good and the nachos are to die for (also best to share) Do yourself a favor and stop by this magical flavor shop. More...

This is some legit BBQ. Brandon is such a nice humble guy. My family had decided on Mexican food for dinner. Then I saw on FB they still had some left. So I had to make a quick stop just to pick up a care package for later. It was my first time and will not be my last. More...

Brisket, Mac n cheese, and beef burnt ends alll really have good flavor and were delicious. Sausage just okay. Elotes need more flavor (lime, char, taijin).

Had a great experience today and great food. We tried it all at it was worth the wait. I thoroughly enjoyed the meats. Brisket and beef ribs had good smoke and a nice peppery flavor. The pork ribs were on point with a great dry rub and very savory. The sausage wasn’t my favorite but out of four of us all the rest loved it. Sides were good but the slaw wasn’t my favorite. Banana pudding cupcakes were a delicious and welcome surprise from the normal desert fare at these. More...

My wife and I went to one of our favorite breweries Hop Fusion one weekend and as we walked in smelled BBQ. Well nothing goes with a good cold beer like BBQ so we bought some. Well folks let me tell you. These guys have some of the best around. We went back for more that day and have been back every time they've been at Hop Fusion since. Absolutely fantastic food y'all.

Finally got to make it out to @hurtadobarbecue and I spoke with some friends and family of Brandon Hurtado before ordering. His whole family loves to cook and you can tell he really enjoys what he does. So much detail in all of the items he served and I enjoyed the family atmosphere. This has got to be the best barbecue I’ve ever had right down to the homemade sauce served with the tacos. Not to mention the desserts OMG the banana pudding cupcakes were delicious. I highly recommend Hurtado barbecue to start off your Saturday! More...

I tried the jalapeño cheddar sausage, beef rib, and chopped brisket when they were at New Main Brewery. Every meat I tried was among the best I’ve had. They’re banana pudding cupcake was also amazing. The wagyu meatballs were so good. They’re not made with bread crumbs or flour so they’re keto friendly. Can’t wait for the next time. More...

I reached out to Hurtado bbq last minute with an order thinking he’d call me crazy, but nope. He filled our order of 2 briskets and 6lbs of sausage with Mac and cheese in just a few days. And it was AMAZING!!! I’ll recommend him to anyone not just for his amazing bbq and food, but his fantastic and prompt customer service. More...

HOT DAMN that was excellent! The brisket had crispy burnt ends and a succulent smoky flavor. And y’all, let me tell you, just the salsa alone was worth the trip! This food was clearly made with a lot of time and love. Get a bite now, because in a few years, you’re gonna have to wait in line for a few hours to eat this BBQ! More...

Pork belly burnt end tacos - we slow-smoke pork belly then glaze it with our signature sauce, and serve it in warm, homemade flour tortillas, topped with serrano lime coleslaw.

We really focus on what the client is wanting. If you're feeling something sweet and savory, we've got you covered. Want something with a kick? We can do that, too.

Feeding. People. Seriously, that's what got us into this business.

To say that barbecue in Texas is competitive would be an incredible understatement. We're in this business to feed people amazing food that they might not find elsewhere. We want to create eclectic flavors that make your tastebuds dance through each bite.

Our food is delicious. We have stellar reviews. We care about being prompt. We're also affordable!
