If you want a spotless place with generic Cue, go to a chain. Been eating at Hudson's for 30 years and have never had a bad meal or gotten sick. The pork sandwich is piled high with smoky, juicy pulled pork with tangy sauce. Large servings of fresh hand cut fries are greasy but good. I even like the blue... More

Absolutely the best around. Love the hickory fries and tea. They could clean up better but still the best. Buford is a great guy and very generous. I am a local and eat here every week sometimes twice a week.

Not clean eat somewhere else, This place has a bad reputation in the Douglasville area. The Bar-B-Q is not good, I have eaten at some of the best Bar-B-Q places in the southeast. All of the other places in Douglasville are much better.

So I was told about this place, being a huge BBQ fan I tried it. I wish I never did. Horrid. Plus there was rat poop on the floor. Yeah no thank you this place needs to be closed down.

I stopped for lunch while visiting on business. I had the order of ribs. I asked my waitress what kind of ribs they served and it took four people to figure it out and tell me! I smoke a lot of food and so do my friends and family. These were the absolute worst ribs I have ever had. It... More

Traveling all over GA, AL, & SC for business. I try and hit every BBQ place I see. I keep thinking I might find a place with better food than Hudson's. But every time I get disappointed. I have found no better food in 25 years. Maybe because I was blessed by The Lord to have grown up in Douglasville... More

I have been eating her since I was 4 in 1978. May not be the cleanest place to dine but the food is great. Love the Hickory Fries and the soup and cornbread is just yummy.

Known to the locals for decades, this is the best local BBQ in the area. The Brunswick stew is awesome. If you like salad with pork meat -- try the southern salad. The sweet tea is a local favorite also. The fries are sliced fresh on site. The chili-dogs are also awesome -- get two or more.

It had been years and years since I ate here, just happened to be in town for a meeting and decided to see if it was still good. YES!! The food was great, the atmosphere friendly. The fries are awesome. It is not a fancy place but that is what adds to the enjoyment. You can be yourself, eat with... More

Locals either love this place or hate it. My friend decided to order take out from here and after seeing the kitchen I was unsure if I should order any food or not. Not the cleanest and I will leave it at that. The bags of take out are always soaked in grease. If you like greasy bbq then you... More
