We came here at 6 on a Wednesday night. We ordered wings and ribs. The ribs were tender, but had zero flavor. The wings were $.99 and some had one bite of meat on them. The Mac and cheese was put to shame- seemed like...More

The service at the restaurant was awesome. They were prompt and the food was amazing. I had the chicken quesadilla with sweet potato fries and it was very tasty. I would highly recommend this place.

The ribs are 5*, however the brisket I would give a 1*. The brisket was tough and parts were not edible. The sauce tasted like it had liquid smoke in it. Their potato salad was very good.

Popped in about 8:00 on a Thursday. The bar was jumping but the dining room was maybe half full. The service was just great: they were there every time I put the menu down, ready to help. I had a cocktail and a bbq plate....More

We enjoyed lunch here on a recent visit to Brentwood. Food portions were quite generous and everything was very tasty, not dry like many barbecue places I've been. Service was friendly and attentive. I would definitely go back!

I was hungry for BBQ, so we stopped at Judge Bean's, which was a good choice. I'd suggest the 1 meat pulled pork sandwich. Get the Potato Salad - the best I've had in years. Mac and cheese side was good; as was the beans...More

I bought a $5 dollar Tamale and ended up with a very small Tamale. The portion was the size of a child's Tamale. It was not worth the cost and I will not order again. It was a huge disappointment.

Fantastic food here, and decent beer selection. Really a good place for either a business lunch, an evening with co workers, an evening of drinking, or an event catering. Not many places offer that many types of atmosphere under one roof. Highly recommended.
