Good stop on the SC barbecue trail

We've started trying as many BBQ places in the Carolinas as we can get to. Hudson's was on our way to Charlotte and timing was right for lunch. I had the signature ribs while my wife had the pulled pork. If we could give 1/2's on the rating I'd probably give them a 3 1/2 for the barbecue itself... read more

Stopped by for their famous buffet. The food was average, bland & dry while workers were incredibly rude and unprofessional toward other guest. I expected more based on the local recommendations but everything was subpar.

Hudson's offers your typical buffet style BBQ in addition to a full menu. The restaurant is family friendly, with an old lodge feel with wooden floors and walls, and a big fireplace. Plenty of covered outdoor seating.

We went looking for a BBQ place that could come close to having the Eastern NC type pull pork we had come to love while living in Greenville, NC. First of all, a buffet is deadly when I am trying to maintain some sort of healthy waistline. The line up of the buffet was beginning with potatoes to take room... More

Went to Hudsons Smokehouse & had the best BBQ I have had sine leaving Savannah, Ga. Their sandwiches are big, filled with tasty meat. Service is fast & always very pleasant.

Absolutely the worst BBQ and buffet I have ever visited. The veggie offering on the buffet was your standard canned vegetables. The only meat offered was fried chicken (not very good) and pulled pork (awful). I decided to order from the menu and selected a half-chicken, which was oven baked, not from a smoker, and grossly overcooked. To make matters... More

One of our all time favorites. Everything here is yummy. From the tasty sides - sweet potatoes are my favorite to the BBQ itself this is the place. Really. On our top ten BBQ list in the nation.

So I've been to Hudson's many times with my family, and we've always enjoyed it. After a long and busy day, we happened to be on that side of town and looked forward to coming again. Their buffet offers so many options for my kids, it usually is a sure bet. They close at 9, and we got there about... More

If you want ribs and a big buffet you need to head here. The pork pulled bbq is the same as everywhere else but the ribs are slap your momma good. Brown sugar and red pepper. Sweet and tangy!
