This South Bronx spot makes exceptional smoked chicken wings in a dry rub, along with a ton of other meat and BBQ sides that are perfect for a big, casual group meal. Dipping Hudson Smokehouse’s wings into their homemade apply, vinegar-based BBQ sauce tastes like Fall decided to throw itself a party. So we recommend coming during their weekday Happy Hour (from 3-6pm), and loading up on wings, and baked beans laden with pineapple and pieces of tender brisket.
