I like this place, its Texas BBQ. The place gets busy and has a busy bar. Reminds me of joints outside Austin.

Nice local barbecue restaurant with a wide menu of choices. Did not have all the beers that were on special and the waitress did not seem to know what they had or didn't have. Wait time at lunch can be frustrating as many folks get there well before 11:30AM. Food is good and plentiful and the staff is friendly

We stopped here while traveling thru the great state of Tennessee and looking for a genuine BBQ joint. Judge Bean's fits the bill. It's a small place located in a busy shopping area, but we arrived in mid-afternoon so we were able to get a table without a wait. The menu is what you would expect with a full range... More

We were visiting Nashville and had gone to Brentwood and wanted to get lunch while we were there. I chose Judge Bean's for their Texas style BBQ and wasn't disappointed. Really loved the ribs but everything we had was delicious.

Stopped into Judge Beans several times now. Super little local place. Unique country BBQ joint decor with a Texas slant in my opinion. The place smells great, too. It's that smoky BBQ smell, that makes you hungry! I have tried several things: the tamales, the brisket taco, the catfish taco, shrimp diablo, and sides of beans and okra. Margarita is... More

Whenever were in town we always go to Judge Beans. Great BBQ and ribs. Our favorite thing to get is the Texas Sushi and the Shrimp Diablo. The shrimp Diablo is a jalapeño stuffed with a large shrimp and cream cheese and wrapped in beacon. The Texas Sushi is a jalapeño stuffed with a piece of smoked sausage cream cheese... More

After checking into our hotel we asked the staff to recommend a place to eat. Judge Bean was recommended! We ordered beef brisket, chicken dinner with beans, mac-n-cheese, slaw and fries for sides. The brisket was so tender and had a flavor. The grilled chicken strips were slightly seasoned and came with cheese sauce on the side and salsa. Slaw... More

We came 5 minutes to close and were turned away. The kitchen shouted out that they could handle us, so luckily we were able to get a table. The food was great!! I had the brisket and the ribs. Hubby had the brisket and sausage. Everything was very tasty and a great value. I highly recommend the potato salad. I... More
