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.

“Good barbeque..........”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

friendly service and good Margaritas. We enjoyed dinner with our son, his wife and our 7 yr. old grandson at Judge Bean's. Simple menu but that made us more focused on the barbeque. Good portions, excellent sauce and good service made for a nice evening.

“Southern Hospitality At It's Best!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The food was amazing here, as was the atmosphere. Several TV's and the bartender and wait staff were incredibly polite and attentive! I would recommend this place to anyone visiting the area. The brisket tops my favorites on their menu.

“BBQ, Beer & Babes”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

And good music.. I had no idea what I was walking into, but this was a nice surprise. I had ribs and was satisfied. Love the music and the waitstaff were lovely and friendly. Smokers out back fill up the parking lot with inviting aroma.

“Nice Fusion 'Cue”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

The music was incredibly loud, the place was freezing and we'd just been in an hour-long traffic jam on Broadway when we walked in, so the beginnings of our meal were not auspicious. But after some of their house "sushi", very tasty brisket and outrageously good Texas Jumbo-laya, we were MUCH better. They did eventually turn the music down and the tasty food (plus roaring hot salsa) warmed us up considerably.

“Great Texas style barbecue!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Tried the brisket top it with Texas style BBQ sauce it was excellent! The tamales are the best I've ever eaten (yes even in Texas). A must for any BBQ lover. Closest one can come to Texas without hoping on a plane die a couple of hours. Until I can go back this will have to do. Hook'em horns!
