A wonderful southern meal from a Bostonian

The buffet was really good, service was a little hurried and flustered but it was a busy lunch time. My cheeseburger was awesome . Can't miss having a good all around lunch with fresh turnover. Visiting from Boston with our relatives & family was a real treat for us. Wish we had one at home.

My family discovered Hudson's when their catering services were used for an orchestra event our daughter was involved in. The concert ran over the allotted time and the food was waiting but even though it had been waiting to be served for about 20 minutes, the food was still hot and delicious. Hudson's has a wide variety of meats, my... More

Me and a friend visiting from out of town sat down after a long day and stuffed ourselves with what may have been half their menu. Our waitress was so nice and accommodating. When I couldn't decide between the pork BBQ and the ribs (a common dilemma) she brought out a pork bbq sampler with all three of their sauces.... More

I had a wonderful meal and relaxing time here while visiting from California. The side dishes on the buffet were yummy! I am not a southerner, but I know tasty when I find it. The booth was perfect to accommodate the newest member of our family in her infant seat. Wait staff were helpful and courteous. While had to wait... More

Every time I travel to this area I go to this restaurant! I love their pulled pork. I don't care for "sauced" BBQ, and this place serves their ribs with an option of sauce or dry rub. The food here is great and the buffet is very reasonable.

First I would say that the barbeque is good. Not great, but good. The atmosphere is nice, and it is family friendly. The service is top notch and the rest of the food on the menu is very good. Overall, it is one of the best options in Lexington.

Great Southern BBQ in a rustic décor. the service is friendly and helpful. Takeout is available at the bar. Great Brisket, and the sides were very good too ! had collards, coleslaw and mac and cheese. I do recommend this place for dining in or takeout.

We are originally from Tennessee. Tennessee BBQ is sweet and tangy, with a brown sugary tomato type taste. Like sweet Baby Ray or Jack Daniels yummy goodness. I was not fond of the vinegary taste at Hudson's. I found the taste bitter and just not what I have enjoyed as BBQ. Maybe it is an acquired taste. On a positive... More
