The food and service were good. I had BBQ pork sandwich, co-worker had the pork plate & we shared an order of fried pickles. Would come back again if in the area.

Hudson's Hickory House has been around since the 70's. It is the quintessential "mom and pop" BBQ joint that has survived thru the ages due... More

This is authentic southern fare. The BBQ is slow cooked on a smoker and just delicious. The BBQ sauce is homemade and a Hudson family recipe. The fries are hand cut from real potatoes daily.
