As a native Texan, Judge Bean unsurprisingly and thankfully gravitates toward brisket rather than pulled pork. A man after my own heart. He is also apparently a descendent of the infamous Texas lawman Judge Roy Bean, which is just awesome. Part of me was anticipating a counter-service barbecue joint, but Judge Bean's uses waitresses. As I frequently do when dining... More

We went to Judge Bean's BBQ this evening for dinner. It is a fun place and the service was wonderful however the BBQ is only average. I had the Combo Plate with brisket and chicken. The brisket was good but the chicken was over cooked.

Great staff, awesome food! Beef Brisket is a must and ribs are cooked to perfection. Good amount of TV's if you want to catch any event.

Great BBQ! Our family tried a little of everything. The brisket was the best we ever had. My husband had the combo platter which had a variety of BBQ meats. Everyone of them was tender and delicious!!! I had a specialty drink off of the daily drink specials and it was very good!! It was a very casual restaurant with... More

Did some research of restaurants in Brentwood before our stay in the area. We decided to eat local in Brentwood for an early supper before a planned evening elsewhere in Nashville. Easy go find and fast and quick service. I noticed others were getting just as fast service. I loved the salsa. Yeah, I though "salsa and chips at a... More

Great Tennessee BBQ. We were in town for a conference and was looking for good BBQ, we found just the place at Judge Bean's. The food was terrific, from the beef brisket to the ribs. Upon arriving the outdoor grills were going adding a succulent aroma to the air. Service was good, quick and pleasant. And the price was reasonable.... More

We enjoyed our lunch in this casual, rustic setting and I can say hands-down that they offer some of the best brisket I have ever it. It was tender and had a robust, beefy flavor. The portion was generous and I was able to enjoy leftovers at home, which were just as tasty the next day. I also ordered the... More

We had plates of various BBQ (Ribs, brisket, pork). I must say that the best thing My husband and I had were the ribs. They were the best thing hands down!

When you walk in, the smell of barbecue envelops you. There is a small bar area to the left. All-You-Can-Eat Taco Tuesday for under $10!

I NEVER expected to like the atmosphere of a bbq joint until I met this local establishment. What used to be a hole in the wall bar is now a well established pig on the spit, with band nights, regulars, and all around good time. you have regular seating for family and friends, or a moderate bar scene for sports...
