Value is great

Portions are large and price is great. Brunswick stew is very tasty. Hickory salad is large and has good quantity of meat.

As you pull into the parking lot you can smell the smoker cooking. I've been eating here for thirty plus years and always have great service delicious food and friendly people there. The blue cheese dressing is made in house and is perfect with fries or try it in your BBQ sandwich. I typically get two inside pork sandwiches and... More

Hudson's Hickory House has been around longer than dirt. It was one of the very first restaurants to open in Downtown Douglasville back in the 70's. In my opinion it serves some of the best pulled,chopped, sliced pork, beef and chicken. The restaurant inside is huge and is indicative of restaurant that serves bar-be-que. That wonderful aroma of hickory smoke... More

Hudson's has the best pulled pork around. The Brunswick stew is delicious. Little hot sauce goes along way. Sweet tea can't be beat. The decor is crazy but you don't even see it when you're eating the food. Great service fast efficient and given by people that have been there a long time. We go there often and I've been... More

Great service. The food was out standing. The place was old and needed a face lift. I would eat here again.

This place has been a local favorite for decades. Tender, smokey pulled pork good enough to eat with no sauce at all (the way I like it) or with their traditional vinegar sauce. The hickory potato is my favorite go-to--a giant baked potato loaded with pulled pork and cheddar cheese. Most folks love it with an extra dollop of ranch... More

Pretty average BBQ. Pork and brisket are decent. The fries with BBQ on top was terrible. Slow service.
