“Great food!”
Review of Judge Bean's BBQ

Judge Bean's BBQ
Ranked #5 of 144 Restaurants in Brentwood
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: THE BEST BBQ EAST OF TEXAS When you come to Judge Bean's, we want you to feel at home. We want to you to get good, home-cooked food straight off the pit, side dishes that will make your mouth water and and an experience that is unique to our place. That's a tall order, but it's a promise we do our best to make good on every day we open the doors. At Judge Bean's, a lot of folks say we have our own vibe. And that is true. We're not your typical BBQ joint. We're better than that.

Pork was AMAZING, brisket was good. LONG wait for party of 9 on a weekend. Hostess brought us food (chips and salsa) while we waited.

“Great food, but be careful of the "locals"”
Reviewed February 14, 2012

Good barbecue in a nice, non-chain atmosphere. Nice selection of beers, both bottled and draft. Locals can get a little friendly, as I ended up giving away most of my appetizer to get a regular to shut up. Also, I would be careful to let some of the locals leave before you, as there doesn't seem to be a limit as to how much beer the place will serve people. I walked from my hotel, but most of them drove, which was just a little disturbing. In any event, a nice place with a laid back atmosphere, especially if you're tired of the chains.

“Ribs were good. Other meat offerings were okay”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

We went on a Saturday night. Saw the parking lot was full. Once we were inside, we realized that was because people were hanging on to watch college football on the multiple televisions. We both ordered the sampler/combo plates. This was brisket, ribs and sausage. The ribs were good. We enjoyed the sausage and the brisket was okay. The BBQ sauce on the tables were very strong in vinegar. It has just occured to me that mabye we should have shaken the container in case there was seperation. Service was attentive and we enjoyed the dinner. Would probably explore some more before going back again.

“Unbelievable fudge pie & great BBQ.”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

We really enjoyed judge bean's. The ribs were great and the fudge pie was excellent. The waitress was very friendly and helpful. The salsa has a nice smoky flavor.

“Best BBQ in Nashville!”
Reviewed September 18, 2011

Judge Bean's is awesome. I have been going there occasionally for the last year and a half and the food is unmatched. I've been to other BBQ restaurants but nothing compares to Judge Bean's! Go on Tuesday or Saturday for their unlimited tacos--they are so good. The salsa is always a little different because it is made fresh every day. The atmosphere is laid back and the servers are all very friendly. This is a great place to watch your favorite football game because it's not a crazy bar and they have (I think) access to all of the football games. My only complaint is that they should have live music more often!
