Hudson’s Smokehouse Express

Hudson's Smokehouse on Two Notch in Lexington, SC

Hudson’s Smokehouse began in our father, Robin, and Barbara’s kitchen in 1995. On Fridays and Saturdays we would wake up to the smell of collards cooking down stairs and hickory smoking as dad was in the backyard shoveling coals on the fire. This was their hobby and they loved to share their recipes with family and friends.

Today, it’s a much different picture. We now have over 100 employees, two restaurant locations and recently opened our state of the art catering location, also in Lexington. Our catering business is one of the largest in the state and we cater to businesses, churches, weddings and regular folks like us all over SC, and parts of NC and Georgia. Our Smokehouse was featured on Turner South’s “Blue Ribbon Award Show” as one of the top four BBQ joints in the south. We have also been voted #1 by many other newspapers and magazines. This has helped our BBQ business grow into a family restaurant that we are very proud of.

Although our business has grown our food still has all the love and quality that went into it back in 1995. We thank our loyal friends and patrons, Whether you’re dining in, simply picking up take out or being catered, we strive to provide the best service possible. Our dad still says “be careful what you pray for, you just might get it,” Our father’s hobby has gotten way out of hand.
