Hudson's thrift plate is a filling value meal. A great place for a no frills steak and baked potato. Excellent hamburgers and best sweet tea in town.

I love the feel of this place cause it reminds me of the old Atlanta days with the country feel. The food is good also and a real value for the price. The best is the hot dogs.

The food is great and inexpensive, but I have never seen the place look really clean and I've been eating there for more than 30 years!

Once seated the waitresses ignored us for almost five minutes, even though two where only one table away talking like no one was on earth but themselves. Then they walked away to the beverage station and talked with at least three other waitresses. Once we... More
