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.

The place looks like a "hole in the wall" from the outside, but don't be fooled - the food is excellent. Everything we have tasted thus far has been excellent. The pulled pork, brisket and chicken were all very good. The Diablo shrimp are delicious and carry a kick. The salsa has a wonderful spicy, smokey flavor, so be sure to ask for the chips and salsa.

This is one of those places you just have to know about. Really enjoy most of their food. This is a place you cannot go wrong. A little small but worth going. If you are solo then go to the bar and eat while you watch the game. Kinda of a special place.

Good BBQ Chicken and Pork. Went their for lunch with 2 associates and after a little trouble finding parking were seated right away and taken care of immediately. Associates had the loaded potato with Pork and I had the BBQ Chicken. Everything was excellent and timely served.

Great little place for dinner and a beer. Staff really hustled and food arrived quicker than expected considering the place was packed. Lots of t.v.s to watch sports. Don't expect to have a quiet conversation, but know that the food will be very good.

We were on the road for nearly 9 hours, and looking for dining options as we approached our hotel. I found reviews for Judge Bean's BBQ online, so we pulled off the freeway a few exits prior to our hotel to give it a try. The exterior is unassuming, and the interior is casual and open, "well used," and clean. The bathrooms were clean, though could use some work.
Food options go a bit beyond BBQ. We were given chips and their salsa at the beginning. Tortilla chips were standard. The salsa had a smoked flavor and sweet heat. Service was attentive and friendly and our food arrived very quickly. I ordered 4 bones of ribs, with beans and green beans. My friend ordered BBQ pulled pork, fried okra, and cole slaw. All of the food was hot on arrival (except for the cole slaw of course). We both loved the flavor of our BBQ selections, and the meat quality and quantity were great. It was the same for our baked beans, okra, and green beans - terrific all around. Total cost for our meals was about $22, a great value. If ever in the area again, I would certainly make an effort to return.
