I was not a big fan of barbecue but Roy's has changed all that. Delicious sauce,great prices, friendly atmosphere. The sauce is not overly sweet. People are willing to stand in line outside it's that good.

This local BBQ joint is a must when in Hutch. Their BBQ sauce has a unique zing to it that wakes up your taste buds.

No better introduction to Kansas BBQ than to stumble actress Roys while on a trek from New Mexico to kc... Great ribs and terrific sides.. Get there before 2 pm because the food goes fast. Staff is busy but friendly and patrons are fun

Love this BBQ! Anne and Ryan are always so friendly too! It is a family favorite and a required stop when our family is home for a visit!

The food is great, staff is super nice, and you never wait long for your meal. The sauce is to die for.

Great food, friendly staff. Come early they serve until the meat runs out. Small but quaint, you'll want to bring your friends

Quintessential pit barbeque hiding on the outskirts of town. Very reasonably priced for the amount of food you get, $11 got me a plate of meat, bread, and all I could eat sides. The sides were “salad bar style” and help yourself. The brisket was shredded, and not at the top of my list but I really enjoyed the pork... More

Sausage, brisket, ribs all fantastic. The locals know when you've gone here because "they put a smell on you." You'll smell like the smoke flavored bbq they use. Accompaniments are sparse, but the meat is to die for.

Recently made the visit to Roy's again. And as usual great food. I think the best ribs around. My wife had the brisket and again great. We did wait but who cares when the food is this good.

This extremely unique BBQ stop attracts crowds from afar, although it's a long line of locals just to get inside most days. Their meat and sauce are top notch, and grease bread if you like that sort of thing. The beans & salad bar is mediocre, and they don't offer fries. Roy's is an independent family restaurant that has found... More
