Hudson’s Hickory House – Douglasville, GA

Hudson’s Hickory House

As a kid, Hudson’s was my first BBQ experience. We used to go there after football games and other youth activities, so it holds a special place in my memory..

It was almost as good as I remembered. I had the chopped pork sandwich, as usual, and the Brunswick stew. Jennifer had the same except substituted the baked beans for the stew.

I thought the sandwich was great, but Jennifer felt it was a little dry. The Brunswick stew was good, but a little too much onion and a little bit soupy. The sweet tea was good, but not great. The fries were the best item: fresh cut, whole potato, and floppy like a BBQ house should be (if you’ve ever had fries at The Varsity in Atlanta, you know what these are like). Jennifer’s baked beans were a bit weird. Too much brown sugar made them overly sweet.

Service was good and the staff was friendly. Jennifer was wearing her T-shirt from last Sunday’s Bikers for Boobs ride, which caught the attention of one customer, who walked over to tell us that she was a 3.5 year survivor of breast cancer and that she appreciated that we had participated in the charity ride.

  1. I LOVE Hudson's! I haven't been there in about a year or so. :( But now you've flung a cravin' on me! Next time you're there, try a super salad with pork & thousand island dressing. Or a pork plate (inside meat only). And, yes, their fries rock!!!

    I haven't been there in a long time, but still remember the great BBQ that was/is served there. Maybe I'll get back someday to try it again.
