Tasty variety of fall off the bone meats with delicious sides (fried okra, slaw with a kick, cornbread of course), hearty portions at reasonable prices.

We eat here often and bring friends. A little local place with great food. Never had bad ribs. A local hang, but cool. Don't expect perfect shine but do expect clean and friendly. Love Judge Bean's

Ten years ago I would have put Judge Bean's up against any barbecue restaurant in Nashville. If you were just comparing Texas barbecue, Judge Bean's was dominant. As one of their cutes-y Texas-y wall decorations might say, no mas. I took a client to JB's...More
