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.

We were down for a weekend to see our son from college,and were looking for a place that wouldn’t rush us out. This was a perfect choice, great food, casual spot let us catch up.

This is a small little spot with really good bbq. I got the brisket, it was very good. I also enjoyed the coleslaw, although my colleague preferred more of a creamy coleslaw. I thought it was great. The portion size was fantastic. It was not a big place but if you are looking for solid bbq, this is the spot for you.

Average BBQ. Pork was ok, brisket was dry and uninteresting. Best thing on the plate was the fries. Having lived in KC, maybe I am biased toward more flavorful smoked BBQ, but I think it is really just this location that underwhelms. Only one sauce choice. Bummer.

Highlight: Tennessee Sushi. Brisket wrapped jalapeno stuffed with cheese and sausage. That was excellent, but not enough for a meal.

Ok - the bags of water - apparently meant to keep houseflies away. But if they are already in the building, the bag won't make them disappear.....and really do I want to know you have a problem with so many flies in my dining establishment anyway!

Bags of water are a Texas thing. Smokehouses in Texas use them to put by windows that are open and it keeps the flys away. They are just decoration. Thanks

Went there to have some smoked wings, but was way more impressed by the appetizers which were fantastic: the Texas Sushi (jalepeno stuffed with smoked sausage and cheese, then wrapped with brisket) and the Shrimp Diablo. Order several of those and you won't need a main course.
