Skillet's Barbecue

Owner hopes to fill void in Hutto downtown dining

When Rick Bourland moved to Hutto, he saw a lack of dining options—and an opportunity for a new business.

"I moved to Hutto one and a half years ago, and I noticed there wasn't a lot of places to eat," Bourland said.

"When I was looking at local buildings, everyone asked if [the restaurant] would be barbecue, so that kind of made up my mind."

Bourland smokes all of the meats himself on-site. Skillet's menu includes traditional barbecue fare including brisket, turkey and ribs.

Bourland is also working to expand the menu and recently added chopped turkey with an Alabama white barbecue sauce.
