Took a friend from out of town here on recommendations of coworkers from the area. The restaurant itself is nicer than some of the smaller bbq joints. There is an actual smokehouse off the restaurant building so you know it's the real deal. The buffet wasn't very impressive...it was mostly sides and the only bbq was pulled pork, so we... More

I have ordered party and picnic food from Hudson's on a number of occasions and they never disappoint. You can call ahead for bulk orders of chopped pork, chicken, ribs and all the sides and pick them up at the convenient drive through window next to the main restaurant. My families' faves are the chopped pork, ribs, macaroni and cheese... More

Hudsons has a great buffet and their barbecue is delicious. There are lots of great choices on the buffet including vegetables,barbecue, chicken and desserts. I love their vinegar based BBQ sauce! The service is good, but the seating is always tight. I wish they would not pack in the tables in chairs so that its uncomfortable for people to get... More

What a wonderful selection of vegetables and meats. Everything is cooked Southern style and is absolutely delicious! They also offer several dessert selections. Their staff is friendly and always checking to see if you need anything. Great food!

It was a holiday weekend, and Sunday, some places closed. This place was busy--usually a good sign. It was. Can't say enough about their BBQ! Prices, to start, are excellent. They offered a buffet, with a good assortment of sides and desserts, but limited as to main dish options. With the prices of menu items, no reason to be limited... More

Stopped in for a quick dinner with a colleague on a Thursday evening. Hostess was friendly and seated us very quickly despite no reservation. There is a buffet available with what looked like a great selection. It must be very popular as we saw many of the diners make multiple trips to the buffet table. We ordered from the menu... More

The food was ok at best-- don't have what traditionally are barbecue sauces -- the have tomato, vinegar and mustard which as a northerner makes no sense to me.

We have eaten here several times. We aren't really buffet people, so only tried it once. It is a crowd favorite. I personally like the pulled pork sandwich, and their sweet potato fries, which are some of the best I've had.

Not much to say about Hudsons. The food is just ok. I love BBQ, probably my favorite style of food. This place is less than 7 minutes from me and I go 20 minutes away for good BBQ instead. The food isn't bad, just not worth my mom ey.

Thank GrnEyedCajun75
