Awesome barbecue.

I lived in Texas 40 years before I moved to S. C. It took me two years, but I finally found great barbecue in S. C.at Hudsons. Even the sides are great. I've eaten lunch there and had a family party catered. No complaints !! Enjoy !!

Place gets packed quick! I got there when it opened, at 1100, and by the time I left, 40 minutes later, the parking lot was packed, plus the drive thu! Great southern bbq! I tried the sampler plate with a little bit of everything. I loved the ribs! The waitress was awesome and the service was quick, even though they... More

The buffet was disappointing, with two meat choices. The sides were O.K., but not remarkable in any way. I did not enjoy the meal very much, though the tea was great and the atmosphere was fun. The staff was great and very attentive.

We have eaten here a couple of times on weekend nights. Be prepared for a wait if planning to eat the BBQ buffet as the buffet area is small and the line is single sided. I find the buffet selection limited (when compared to other BBQ restaurants with buffets like Shealy's). The BBQ is good but everyone develops their own... More

The place is busy but the staff handles it very well. We had opted for the buffet and were not disappointed everything was southern all the way a real Bbq dinner! The service was good just make yourself home that's what it is all about!

Holy BBQ Batman!! The best thing I can say is if you want to really try it, pick an off hour. Food here is so good that during normal meal times you will probably have a hard time getting a seat! The buffet if you are hungry but any plate will fill up a normal person. Sides are fantastic!

Get the ribs, get the ribs, get the ribs, oh and make sure you get the ribs. Everything is good like BBQ, Fried Chicken, Shrimp and Grits, Collards, Green Beans, Sweet Potato Fries, but the RIBS... they are the BEST in SC.

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.
