Fantastic brisket and chicken

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... read 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.

We saw Judge Bean's on the way to a yarn shop and decided to try it out on the way back. It doesn't look like much which is a good sign when it comes to BBQ. The inside is very country, but I liked it anyway. The service was super friendly, and the food was plentiful, affordable, and delicious. We... More

Great place for BBQ. I make brisket for T.G. and Christmas so I know how to make brisket. Judge Beans was better than mine and the sides were very good. My wife and I had a great meal then hung out and listened to 60's music. Great food and a good time.

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.
