Excellent pulled pork barbecue

You can't go wrong with Hudson's pulled pork and the barbecue hash (a South Carolina specialty made of pork, chicken, tomatoes, potatoes, onions etc. and served over rice). The side dishes, however, are pretty ordinary. So while we often get Hudson's for takeout on the traditional Southern... read more

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. The sides are not a side thought, either...all well done. I've even used Hudson's Catering for a few events and the food and service is always excellent and... More

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.

The best we had in Columbia. We visited Hudson's for dinner 3/13/15. An extremely friendly wait staff with a great vibe inside. I heard blues music playing in the background which always adds to the atmosphere for me personally. The mustard sauce here was the best I had during my BBQ eating trip across SC. An excellent spicy / mustard... More

Great food, plenty to go around. I can't wait for it to be warmer so the outside opens up. Tight on seating. Thank you.

Hudson's is a local favorite for good barbecue. However the buffet is only so-so and the service staff tends to consist of teenagers who really aren't interested in actually providing- service. Screaming children, clanking dishes, loud conversations and a colorful clientele will create an interesting cultural experience. You may even wonder why you ever came back. The answer is in... More
