Judge Beans BBQ is a true Texas barbecue joint, no doubt about it. They serve an amazing brisket barbecue specifically designed to win over all of the pork- and beef-loving Nashville natives, and they're doing a pretty good job.

Read it closely for a good giggle before your food arrives. Be warned: Judge's makes it hot and spicy, but if you're looking for a true Texas treat, you may have found your new favorite place. - Lynn-nore Chittom
