Prices great as well as the food. Service good as well. Can't ask for much more. Just a great family style bbq joint. A must for visitors.

Since our last pick up from the Old Two Notch location that was not good at all, we have not been back. For the July 4th holiday, we decided to give the main store a try. I called the store the morning of the 4th at 10:40 am and was helped by a very nice young lady. She said there... More

This is our go-to place for authentic Southern smokehouse barbecue whenever we have visiting company. Ordering used to be done at the counter but a few years ago they changed it to a buffet/menu venue. Most (menu) orders are meat and three sides. The smokehouse is next door and you can smell it from a quarter-mile away. Anything involving the... More

We selected this location off a BBQ map we picked up at the SC welcome center in Florence, SC because Hudson's Smokehouse happened to be opened on Tuesday nights and because they serve the three main BBQ sauces SC is known for based on either Vinegar, Mustard or Ketchup. We like to try different regionally based foods when we're traveling.... More

We have been here many times and usually have the lunch buffet. The food is always good and the service is great. I like that they have fried chicken livers on the buffet along with the chopped pork and fried chicken. All are really good. They have a good variety of vegetables and salads to compliment the meal. You certainly... More

Ordered take out from here and found the food to be flavorful and fresh. The portions were large enough for us to get two meals out of one order. A bonus is the drive through pick up window for call in orders. It was monsooning when I went to get my food and didn't have to get out of the... More

As part of our ongoing quest to complete the South Carolina Barbecue Trail Passport, we visited the Hudson's in Lexington, South Carolina. Based on trip advisor and interview reviews, we expected to have a great meal. It was okay, but certainly not the upper echelon of BBQ. We ordered: * Buffet * Ribs * Pulled Pork Sandwich: Meat was sweet... More

I had eaten here multiple times when I lived in Columbia, SC and loved their Sunday Buffet which included Ribs, Brisket, Prime Rib, Shrimp, etc. I returned to Columbia last weekend and met some friends there for the Sunday buffet, but to our surprise after waiting 45 minutes in line, there were not ribs, brisket, prime rib, or shrimp.
