Good place for BBQ

Hudsons has good tasting food. I have always loved to get the fried chicken hickory fries. It is not the cleanest place to eat but the food is good. My kids love it too. The wait is usually not that long either.

This place was great years ago, but now its just not good. It is dirty, decor is awful, the servers are trashy looking, and the food isn't good. I won't be back anytime soon.

I live in Oklahoma where BBQ is usually beef. Being from the great state of Georgia, BBQ is pork, and Hudson's Hickory House is the best. They have a clean and comfortable dinning room, and the best wait staff around. If you are ever near Douglasville , stop in. You won't be disappointed. Be sure to try the Brunswick Stew.

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 don't know what to fix... 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
