Being close to the hotel and recommended by the hotel, we decided to try it. It was just "ok". The bbq sauce was too spicy for me. I would have rather had shredded beef on my bun, but it was a big slice of corn beef, too big for the bun and a little tough. It was ok, but not... More

Stopped in here for a takeout dinner of the ribs and barbecue chicken. Both are really excellent. The coleslaw and other sides were also quite good. There are lots of places for barbecue in this area but this would be one of the better ones for sure. You can also eat in and have a drink so the next time... More

Excellent brisket and pulled pork. We had fried okra and onion rings for the sides. They were crisp and delicious. They were showing a hockey game on the tvs. It was a very noisy place, hard to hear our conversations. Our server was wonderful.

Tuesday night after the main rush had passed. Tried the most popular BBQ brisket & fries. Great flavor and lots of food on the plate. Texas toast was tasty too. Free chips & salsa set the tone. Will definitely be going back soon.

Love the cow-boy/ family cabin style of the place and I love the music to. And the food: yes me and my husband both licked our fingers: I get the barbeque plate and my husband the smoked pork and ribs. Oh: yummy coleslaw to! We'll be back often!

Good family place for BBQ. Portions are good, prices are reasonable, and my kids love the mac n cheese! Fast service, good seasoning on the meats, you can't really go wrong here.

Don't let the outside fool you. This place has great food and friendly atmosphere. My wife says they have the best burrito (build your own) she ever eaten. I like the BBQ and fresh cut fries.

They've got me dippin' my chicken in cheese and I'm not even mad! This straight up pulled pork is off the block! If I lived here I'd be sentenced to life in heaven. You should get arrested if you don't eat here and you have the chance!

I was in Nashville earlier this week and visited Judge Bean’s Barbeque and loved it. First, I always eat local when I can and I am not the least bit frightened of eating in a “hole in the wall”. Judge Bean’s is a first class “hole in the wall”. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice place, but it has... More

Good atmosphere; nice servers and great BBQ and sides conveniently located in the "heart" of Brentwood! What more could you ask for except more parking.
