This was our first time here and we loved it. I ordered the shiitake and portobello pizza and my husband and mother in law ordered a grandma’s pie. It was lovely. I have a special fondness for this restaurant now because they have a place to note nut allergies and dairy allergies. As someone with both, I appreciate places that note allergies. We will be back soon.

Spicy vodka is really good. It does have a bit of a kick to it but it’s not that bad. I also like spicy food so I may be biased. If you are really really sensitive to spicy foods, you might not like it. But it’s worth the try!

Everything about Hutchins is great. First off, you seat yourself, then scan the QR code on your table. You can order everything from your phone and it all comes out really quickly.
We had the margherita pizza, a custom pizza, the fried polenta with hot honey and several drinks, including Aperol Spritzes, Negronis, and a "Campari Sun", all of which were made perfectly and delivered faster than pretty much any place I've been.
We thought the pizzas were going to be small, personal pan style pizzas, but they are pretty big. Each one could feed 2 - 3 people. They gave us a take out box, though, and it was still delicious later.
The vibe was excellent. Not too loud, bright, or busy. All of the food runners and bartenders were super nice and attentive. Also, the music was a 10/10 for me (Talking Heads, Al Green, Wilson Pickett, etc.).

Durham is a small town with a lot of pizza options. We often have heated debates with friends which one is best... we would die on the Hutchins hill. Their spicy vodka is one of the most craveable pizzas we have ever had! The other big plus about Hutchins for us is the consistency. Whether you are picking up or dinning in, you can always expect a thin, crunchy crust with a slight chew and good sauce/topping/cheese ratio.We sometimes wish they had more variability in their appetizer options but the reality is the pizza is the star!

great pizza but all the ordering has to be done on your phone, even if you’re sitting at the bar. how does that make sense? if you want a second drink, you have to order from your phone again. next time i’ll definitely just get something to go

S tier pizza. Doesn't get better than this for pizza quality. Innovative ordering platform through Toast Tab. Great atmosphere with a full bar + indoor / outdoor seating if weather permits.

Quick service, reasonable prices, and yummy pizza. If you like thin and crispy pizzas, this place has it down. It was so good I wanted to get another pie to go, but I restrained myself since I doubted I could reheat it properly. Definitely a spot I'll be recommending and returning to. I'm looking forward to trying everything on the menu.

The food is great, but the dining experience leaves a lot to be desired. Not having any physical menus is annoying enough as it is, but you also order on your phone as well (which isn't particularly intuitive, and I'm 29 with a masters degree). So, each person at the table ordered their food separately instead of a server putting everything in at one time. The water and napkins are self-serve. The only interaction with any sort of server was when someone delivered the pizza. When going to pay, they default the tip to 22%. Who am I tipping? I am happy to tip a server when we actually have one, but this was the same level of service and interaction I get at a fast food place with a kiosk. The pizza was delicious, but I would just order it to-go.

This is the place I take everyone who visits Durham to go get pizza. I’m not a pizza expert, I just know I can’t get enough of their Margherita, and thus far all my friends and dates have agreed! Plenty of outdoor dining for risk mitigation, great drink selection, great location. A gem of downtown.
