I have been a customer of this place for many years and unlike other restaurants, the quality and the quantity of the food is still a cut above the rest. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. But the BBQ is among the best I have ever had and the hickory potatoes and Brunswick stew are excellent.

Hudson's has been around forever and the food is consistent and the service is good. We usually to take out and they have a special door for that so you don't have to go in the dining area to get your food. Try it and you won't regret it.

Excellent vinegar-based barbecue, and the sweet tea tastes like my Mama's! The pork plate comes with the best hand-cut French fries you ever tasted, and their slaw provides the perfect contrast to the generous helping of smoked BBQ. Delicious!

The taste is ok. But all the flavor is in the "add it yourself" Bar b q sauce. I prefer places that have cooked in flavor.

Mr. Buford and his family have been running this place for over 40 years. It's a hometown favorite loved by all in the community. Everything is fresh and slow smoked. They also serve the best sweet tea in town.

Nothing spectacular, but usually decent BBQ. Meat is tasty, but don't expect the surroundings to be too clean or the service too prompt. Fairly dependable local joint.

We love this place! Very laid back, like you are having dinner at an old friend's house. They have some of the best BBQ in the area with very family friendly prices. They also carry hot dogs, BBQ stuffed baked potatoes, fries that are homemade, salads, and out of this world fried pickles. Their tea is just like what your... More
