100 years of Hudsons

Hudson’s Hamburgers has reached a rare milestone, 100 years of business under the same family ownership. While business has grown in that time, the restaurant is still small. It’s a tiny lunch counter that serves mainly hamburgers, just like Harley Hudson did in 1907. The counter is a place to trade stories, talk politics, catch up on gossip and meet friends, retaining the small-town flavor reminiscent of simpler times. The Hudson’s hamburger is a simple concoction of bun, hand-formed meat patty, sliced kosher dill pickles and sliced onions. That’s it. Don’t ask for fries, lettuce, tomato or mayo. But do try their homemade hot ketchup and hot mustard.
