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...

A fun Texas style and shack looking restaurant with a western feel and bar. Pretty damn good Q. Even the side dishes are better than average! I'm looking forward to my next visit!

Had the 3 meat combo to share. All 3 meats were excellent but brisket was best ever had. No fat in my brisket. Sides were great. Wonderful salsa and chips. Great service. Southern BBQ place deco with lots of flat screen tvs. @ $4.50 dessert too expensive for quantity you get, but @ $2 the tea was a bargain. GO... More

This place has the atmosphere that says "relax you are in the south". Fantastic BBQ anything is on the menu with a variety of southern charm side dishes. Don't forget the Peacan PIA (pie) at the end. Friend staff and big screen TV to track sporting events makes this place an OMG MUST DO

Upon recommendation of hotel staff and TA reviews, we walked to Judge Bean's for BBQ. We sampled brisket, pork and ribs. Consensus - pork was the best. Sides - green beans, baked beans, Mac and cheese and corn on the cob were delicious. The smoked salsa was to die for. The loaded baked potato could feed a family of 3!... More

We shared the sampler platter. That is a whole LOT of meat. All of it was pretty tasty. Chicken wings were good, brisket was nice and smoky and the pulled pork was a bit dry, but really good overall. We also tried the Texas Sushi, which is this weird concoction of sausage and a cream cheese filled jalapeno rolled up... More

We love this place! There is something for everyone. Food is reasonably priced and if you like bbq...delicious. I personally love the mesquite grilled chicken while 2 of my children swear by the brisket. I can often find a discount coupon too!

Great barbecue, maybe the best coleslaw I have had. Still a bar, but didn't feel out of place bringing my daughter.

We were staying nearby and were hungry for some BBQ...so dropped in about 5pm on a Saturday, before the crowd started. They brought out chips and salsa which was odd for a BBQ restaurant, and the salsa was smoked which gave it an unusual but tasty flavor. We split the 2 meat platter (pork and brisket) fries and cowboy beans.... More
