bbq in the Hudson area

You can almost pretend you’re down south, y’all.

Fourth of July is almost here and that makes most Americans think of barbecue, cookouts, eating too much outside, etc.  However, if you’re not up to grilling outdoors (because, say, you don’t have a grill.  Or a backyard) we have a number of bbq options in the area.  I’ll start with the one I haven’t been to yet, and yet can’t wait to try: ‘Cue2Go.

This is the view just off of 9G, heading south from Hudson (but before Tivoli).  The prices look great, they have options and plenty of sides if you don’t want pork and I’ve read good reviews.  I’m looking forward to the taste test. 

If  that’s a little too casual and you want to eat indoors, go a little further south and over to just south of Red Hook to Max’s Memphis Barbeque.

Max’s is a nice option if you want more than take out but not a fancy dinner.  We’ve hit it a couple of times heading up to Hudson back when we didn’t have so many options…  But we have a couple of options actually in Hudson (and, well, Greenport).

American Glory opened up about a month ago and it’s booming.  Located on the 300 block of Warren Street, there are two floors of seating: the bar area downstairs and the quieter upstairs.  One of the best things is the mixed crowd – the price point and menu brings in all types.  Actually, that seems to be a problem too…  They have sandwiches, plates, numerous appetizers and lots of meat.  The veggie burger was ok, the catfish po’boy was good, the fries great.  I’ll go again – I need to try appetizers.

To think, when we first arrived, our only bbq option was Bubba Bean’s

    This place actually blows. The crowd is a bit rough. The daytime is ok, but at night it’s total trash.

      Another American Glory hater??? I must have been there on a quiet night. And luckily I do not live across the street… But it’s good to have a(nother) middle-price option in town.

    Sorry, but the place is full of 20′ something trash. Fights breaking out, people yelling in the street and the food is not even worth it. Was there and the police showed up. It’s actually a nightclub in constant trouble with the local police i heard. Needless to say, we left.

    I don’t think i would visit again. One day they’ll run out of trash, or trash will run out of money.

    hang in there.

    Hum… jack, you sure you’ve been to the right place? My experiences have alwasy been very good. Real wood smoked ribs, outstanding smoked Prime rib, the best burger in the area and an amazing line of local Micro brews. Never did I did notice any nightclub action or police problems. In my opinion, its a pretty classy American comfort food & BBQ restaurant…

    Perhaps its time to refrain from the I hate “American Glory thing”… Its way old. Frankly, it sounds like jelousy, you must be a compedtior. The place is packed every day and night (7 days). The long lines and repeat biz speaks for itself. I’d give it another shot.
