I have been eating at this place since it opened 40+ years ago. Tea was 25 cents back then. Me n my friends would ride our bikes many miles just to eat there. Good food from a hard working local family and good memories. Nothing like dropping in for a good meal with those awesome homemade salad dressing.

Theu don't serve the traditional bbq sauce, it is more like a vinegar. It is still good. I loved the fried pickles !!

The bakery house this side of the Mississippi. I'm an avid barbecue lover. I used to love Briar Patch but since it's burned down and been rebuilt Foods just not the same. I have eaten barbecue throughout Georgia and the surrounding states and Hudson's by far is the best. My recommendation for something new? Try the Hickory fries.

Once you visit you do not even need a Menu, the Value Meal is a Real Big Value, and you do not leave hungry. The choices are very broad, meaning you can choose beef, chicken or pork. They have real potatoes for French fries. Could have some now!

I ate at the Hudson Hickory House with my son recently after his baseball game. I had a great sweet potato and my son had some wings. The sweet tea was amazing here too.

The staff was really excellent. Like being at your family's house for dinner. I wasn't impressed with the BBQ. It was average. The Brunswick stew had no flavor and the meat was just ok. There are better places for BBQ in douglasville but again the service was excellent and the service was great. I wouldn't rush back but if it... More

After hearing much ado about what a Douglasville institution this place is, I decided to try it. We seated ourselves (as directed by the hostess) in a booth by the far wall. Ordered waters and waited for the server to return to take our food orders. This never happened as, while we were waiting, we noticed MICE RUNNING along the... More
