An early morning blaze on June 18 greatly damaged McKinney’s Hutchins BBQ, but after five months of closure the restaurant announced Thursday that it was once again open for business.
“It’s go time! Hutchins BBQ will officially open today at 11 A.M.,” the restaurant Facebook site proclaimed on Thursday. “And we couldn’t be happier as a company to finally be serving great Texas BBQ once again to our loyal customers. So, help us spread the word and then come down to Hutchins BBQ and get your BBQ fix today!”
The fire, in the dark of the wee hours of morning, was put out in approximately 15 minutes, but crews were there extinguishing hot spots and doing overhaul for approximately 1.5 hours. It was a one-alarm response, which included three engines, one truck, an ambulance and Battalion Chief.
At the time the restaurant had hoped to only be closed a few weeks.
