If you are in Columbia, stop and eat at Hudson's

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... read 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

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 barbecue occasions like July 4 and Labor Day, we don't go as much... More

Food is always good. Service is good. Buffet is a bit expensive. We've used them for catering family events before, too and it's always a hit.

Visiting from out of town and this place was near the hotel. Servers were very friendly. I looked over the buffet and decided against (not usually a buffet fan). I opted for the hand made chicken strips with fries, fired our and collard greens. Well, it was more fried food than I would normally eat in a year, but I... More

I havent eaten at Hudson's for a while and decided to try it again. Got the buffet and remembered why it's been so long. To me a waste of money unless you like a variety of bean side dishes and a variety of starches. Just not worth the price of the buffet.

Good large servings of BBQ. Sauces are very good. You have several choices of BBQ, ribs,and brisket .A good place for lunch or dinner if you enjoy southern cooking.
