BBQ was great

Had brisket, ribs, and pulled pork and it was great, onion rings were fair. Decor was nice, and easy parking.

Judge Beans may not be the easiest place to find but it's definitely worth it when you do! My kids love the food and laid back atmosphere, and I do too! The ribs are my favorite, I always swear that I'll order something else but never do! You should also try their brisket! My kids share the nachos and are... More

They couldnt acomadate us but were sitting 4 tops as they walked in while we waited an hour with 3 kids under 7 while people were instantly sitting. Finally got the ribs they were gross. Taste like the inside of an electric smoker and nothing else. 1 barbaque... More

In Nashville area for the weekend and staying in Brentwood. With such good reviews, I went to Judge Bean's for dinner. Had the three meat combo with Cowboy beans and red skin potato salad. The meats, brisket, pork and chicken were all very good. For the type of potato salad that was served, I haven't had any better in years.... More

So many great dishes but the brisket and Texas sushi are my absolute favorites. After dining we usually take home a pound or two of brisket. You won't be disappointed.

Our motel recommended this place, just minutes away, and we wanted some southern BBQ. We thought it was the best we've eaten and will definitely stop again when we're driving to or from Florida. We ordered brisket and chicken. Brisket was tender and flavorful and the chicken was delicious. The sides were excellent too, esp. the mac and cheese. The... More

You can order brisket, plate, sandwich, tomale or even burrito, but get the Brisket! Cowboys beans are also excellent.

We received our drinks quickly. Then waited and waited to be able to order and the place was dead. It was 4 in the afternoon so it was between lunch and dinner. There were 2 other tables but they already had their food. It is a very small restuarant so I could see our server hanging out around the bar... More

This place is small on space but huge on great flavor! Our favorite BBQ place in the Nashville area! Starting with the smoked salsa and chips to the banana pudding everything we have ever eaten here is fantastic! Get the brisket everytime cause I just can't bring myself to,try anything else, it just melts in your mouth.
