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.

    Love for the bean

    Judge Beans is the quintessential “watering hole”...excellent service, great “smoked” flavors and cold beer...it’s where the locals go, that’s the hallmark of a great place!

    I've been to this restaurant twice and highly recommend it. The renovation of the old Mickey Roos' Restaurant looks great, and the food and service have been excellent on both occasions. I highly recommend the Texas Sushi appetizer and the Border Wraps....delicious!

    Great BBQ and Tacos! I eat here at least 2 times a week and it has never been a disappointment. I highly recommend anyone to check this place out!
