After a prolonged opening that was supposed to take place in the fall, Hurtado Barbecue finally opened its doors in late February only to be hit with the dine-in ban soon after. But never fear 'cue fans because the restaurant's unique style of Tex-Mex barbecue is still available for curbside pickup or delivery. In fact, the place has been so swamped with orders that they had to double food production and hire more employees. Off the smoker items include everything from prime brisket, house-made sausages and beef ribs to smoked quail and green chile pulled pork. Also available are family-style platters (think meat, sides and tortillas for 2-10 people) as well as cold vacuum-sealed meats such as whole briskets and pork shoulders. Whatever you do, don't sleep on the hatch chile mac and cheese or the charred Mexican street corn topped with lime crema and cotija.
- Best Restaurants for Spring: "The full menu is available for pickup Wednesday through Sunday during the ban, but orders must be made in advance via the website. Delivery is offered within an 8-mile radius of the restaurant."
- Best Restaurants for Fall: "Until the restaurant opens, you can find Hurtado's food truck operating on the east side of the new restaurant every weekend from 11 a.m. until sold out."
