We enjoyed sitting outside and being comfortable, especially with children. You can even sit out there in the winter because they have a wonderful heater. My favorite is the barbecued 1/4 chicken.

Love going to Hudsons. They have such a large selection to choose from that there is something for everyone. The Hot Bar is always fresh, or you can order off of the menu. Prices are so good.

Generous portions for a very reasonable price. I enjoyed 1/2 lb of smoked ribs with macaroni & cheese, fries, broccoli casserole and a roll. The service was quick and the staff were kind, helpful and courteous.

If you're looking for Southern comfort food, this place is it! The pulled pork is amazing and so are the ribs. I love that you can sauce them yourself. Very friendly atmosphere as well!

We stopped by Hudson's a couple of weeks ago for dinner. We did not purchase the buffet as we do not eat our money's worth. The beef brisket off the menu was good. However, we did not care for the pulled pork. It tasted like it had been soaked in a watered down version vinegar/broth solution and did not have... More

Hudson's is our family's "go-to" place for BBQ. We love that it's not drenched in a sauce and we can each choose what we like, whether it's mustard, tomato or vinegar based.

I purchased take out for a group of 6. The people at Hudson's helped me get the right quantity of barbecue, sides and sauces. My favorite sauce was the mustard based carolina sauce. The group favorite was the tomato based sauce. Everyone enjoyed the meal. Each person we dealt with at Hudson's was very, very helpful.
