My wife and I don't get to that side of town very often. We went this last Saturday and it was just the same as last time. We love their food and we have eaten at several different BBQ restaurants in town and Hudson's has the best hash and rice. More meat than others. It's a bit pricey at 11.95... More

I have been to the ones that are said to be the best in the area and Hudson's has them beat, by far! I could have made a lunch out of the vegetables on the buffet!

They have okay barbecue but it's really gone down in recent years back when we first started going there 10-15 years ago it was great but other places have opened up and let their Lexington location used to be good but the other place the smaller restaurant where they do their catering from is better

Im not a buffet fan but for the barbecue crowd this was great! Everything from chopped pork with a variety of sauces to fried catfish, shrimp and grits and all the sides: mac and cheese, scalloped potatoes, corn, collars greens and rice and hash. The food was hot and delicious. Great rustic atmosphere and really attentive wait staff. Price was... More

Great ribs, meaty, nice bark, and great flavor. This is a simple casual place, not very fancy, but the BBQ is great. I did not try the buffet, so I cannot opine on that. The staff is polite and attentive. Overall I had a very nice meal.

Thank risty317
