WE THINK SO …
This website’s founding editor – like most Southern boys – can’t get enough barbecue. In fact whenever he travels to our nation’s capital, he makes a point to scour the surrounding locales for quality ‘cue rather than dine at overpriced D.C. restaurants.
His favorite ‘cue joint, though, is his hometown – well, “home county” ‘cue join – Hudson’s Smokehouse.
Hudson’s barbecue is simply the best in the Midlands region of the state – and possible the entire state. And the buffet that surrounds it (mashed potatoes, rice, gravy, hash, squash, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, corn-on-the-cob, northern beans, peach cobbler, watermelon, etc. etc. etc.) is rivaled only by the buffet at Little Pigs.
Hudson’s – which boasts the slogan “Taste the South in Your Mouth” – also has the best field peas we’ve ever put in our mouths.
Fair warning, though. A few months ago our founding editor – enjoying the ill-gotten gains of a successful NCAA tournament wager – went back to the buffet line one too many times and nearly lapsed into a “food coma” as a result. Seriously … an excessively generous portion on his third plate of ‘cue put him on his ass for the remainder of that particular Friday.
In fact if any of this website’s enemies are looking for a way to temporarily silence the notoriously industrious Will Folks (a.k.a. Sic Willie), take him to Hudson’s and question his manhood once he’s finished his second plate of ‘cue.
He’ll be out like a light a few hours later …
Anyway … in addition to being all sorts of delicious, Hudson’s is a good value – $8.49 for the lunch buffet and $10.49 for dinner. In fact if you’ve got a family, pay them a visit on Wednesday nights (when kids eat free).
And thus ends our gratuitous free advertising for the day …

@fitsnews If you like Hudsons <rolleyes>, just drive up the road a little further to Hites BBQ on Dreher Rd in W.Columbia. That is real que.
