Buffet or Menu ordering. Good variety on the buffet and great price, but drink not included. Peach cobbler was very good, but not much variety of desserts. Two men in line at the buffet were getting second helpings of shrimp & grits--they said you HAVE to try it! Loved the green beans and fried chicken!

Had their buffet. It had plenty of good stuff. Pulled pork, beef stew, chicken and dumplings, fried chicken, hash, mac and cheese, peas, green beans and more. Hush puppies were great, peach cobbler was above average. Service is good and even though they are busy, service is good. Buffet was around $10. They also offer menu service. This place is... More

We went to hear Carolina South Acoustic, a country cover band and have dinner. Thursday they have a dollar rib special. A full buffet plus regular menu will satisfy everyone's pallet. I had the rib dinner with mashed potatoes, garlicky broccoli casserole and a particularly good Cole slaw. There is also a drive-up for take out orders. Lots of choices... More

Great smokey flavor pulled pork, many vegetables, choice of desserts. Can order buffet or order from menu. Maybe the most unique thing is you have a choice if sauces: mustard, red, or vinegar. A place to enjoy again.

Great pulled pork but buffet line ran out of Mac n cheese, peach cobbler, hush puppies. Spent hour and 20 minutes; waited at least 40 minutes for Mac n cheese; never saw cobbler. Been once before and they were good but horrible today. Service last time was lame; this time really good. Not worth 25 minute drive e to that... More

What can I say, I haven't had BBQ ribs anywhere near as perfect as Hudson's. My childhood favorite in Southern Illinois has awesome ribs, and although it pains me to say it, Hudson's is better. Others in our group had the brisket and chicken. I tried some, and they were OK, as well as their side dishes. To me, ribs... More

Good food. We were a party of seven and we order sandwiches from the menu and a couple of people chose the buffet. Bbq chicken was really good and the peach cobbler was fantastic. There was also a nice selection of vegetables including cabbage, greens, mashed potatoes, cole slaw.

We ordered the Rib Plate to share. There was plenty of ribs and sides for a nice dinner. The ribs were very tasty and the sides quite good. There were 18 in our group so the service was a little slow but better than anticipated. Overall, we would recommend Hudson's.

I only ever get one thing there anymore. The smoked chicken salad. It's a large mixed salad in a tortilla bowl. They top it with their smoked chicken. It's great. The homemade buttermilk dressing is the perfect accompaniment. Sometimes the service is a little overwhelmed and I would like to see the dinning room and ladies room kept cleaner. Otherwise... More
