We were there on 11/9/19... first time... terrific flavor! The brisket and ribs were excellent! I had never had quail before and couldn’t get enough - the seasoning, Smokey flavor and tender meat - my new favorite! It’s a great location (near AT&T Stadium). Bucket-list worthy! More...

Y'ALL HAVE TO TRY THIS PLACE! Don't think about it just get over here! Seriously best place in Arlington, 5 people share 2 El Jefe. It comes with quail, brisket, burnt ends, sausage, spare ribs and 1 side. They open at 11 and I didn't get any quail by 12:30! All meats are super delish, I think they make their own sausage, with black beans and has a chorizo texture. Their Hatch Mac n cheese is ok, but the beans are really good. More...

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...

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...

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...
