Hudson's Hickory House has been in Douglasville longer than I've lived here, which is a very long time. They have very good BBQ, ribs, fries and fried pickles. If you're trying to watch your weight, their salads are good too. I'm not a tea drinker but Hudson's is known for their sweet tea. If you... read more

Hudson's has always been good. I have rarely had a bad experience here and the food is always good. My main complaint would be that if you get something to go you can see they are using some store bought stuff.

Visiting family and wanted good BBQ. Was reffered here by a family friend. Got the Rib plate with fries, a side of baked beans to go. Was pretty good although the BBQ sauce was a little on the vinegary side (less sweet). Overall, good service and good food. Suggestion for the restaurant: Mac & Cheese.

Best pulled pork sandwich and sweet tea in town! I wouldn't recommend the steak but everything else is down home and delicious!

We were out antiquing and looking for a BBQ place for late lunch. We saw the parking lot full of cars and decided to stop in. The staff was friendly and accomodating. The portions were large and the prices were reasonable. The sweet tea was awesome. My only complaint is that the sauce had a little too much vinegar for... More

Hudsons has been around for a very long time and is the place where the locals go to eat BBQ. Not much in atmosphere, but the food is good and at a fair price . They probably have the best sweet tea in town. If you are not a BBQ fan, the burgers are also very good as are the... More

Don't believe all the stories you may have heard about Bar BQ restaurants, especially this one. My family eat at Hudsons every chance we get. The atmosphere there is homey and friendly from the jackalope on the wall to the aroma coming from the kitchen. The food is memorable because it's the best bar none, in Douglasville for Bar BQ!

We ate here with family that grew up in this area. I guess this was a really nostalgic place so they loved it. It looks old and run down, but it was busy and our server was super friendly. The sweet tea was not that good in my opinion, it was too sweet and it tasted old. We had the... More

Great local BBQ resturant. Nothing fancy just good food. Yummy sweet tea and my favorite the super salad with pork and their homeade thousand island dressing.

My husband and I have been several times. The food and service are great! My husband has been eating there for over 45 years, since he was a kid.
