My wife and I were recently in South Carolina for a family matter and I was really craving some good barbecue. It was suggested that we try Hudson's Smokehouse. It was a great suggestion. The pulled pork was great! They don't sauce it up. Instead you are given three bottles with three different types (tomato base,vinegar base or mustard base).... More

This restaurant offers a good BBQ buffet as well as separate orders for Chicken, Hamburgers and BBQ plates. Three different sauces are offered and many different vegetables and southern sides. Price is good. Come early as it can be crowded indoors at peak times.

I find Hudson's to be the best BBQ joint within an hour's drive of Lexington. Everything is very good. I love the buffet, so many options. The BBQ is flavorful. The hash is great. Definite must in Lexington.

I am not really a buffet kind of guy so I will leave comments on that to others. The BBQ is the very best. I like it without sauce of any kind - so again I cannot comment on the sauces either. We often times but the BBQ in bulk and take it home and make sandwiches and meals at... More

I stopped here on my way down south, while hitting all the bbq joints I could find. I intended to just get a sandwich to go but decided to try the buffet. Great southern food! I loved the bbq and the perfect fried chicken, and all the real southern sides like collard greens and fried okra. If you're road tripping... More

Hudson's has a great buffet. Totally Southern. Kids enjoyed it and do food the adults. We never wait for a table and the food is delicious and fairly priced.
