The BBQ At This Unassuming Nashville Eatery Is Melt In Your Mouth Good

When it comes to barbecue, Tennessee knows how to do it right. But there’s one spot in the Nashville area that is making a pretty good case for Texas-style barbecue, and that spot is Judge Bean’s. The Judge himself grew up in Texas learning to cook authentic Texas dishes including his famous barbecue, and he has since brought his granddad’s recipes to Middle Tennessee. Don’t look for pork on this menu — you won’t find it. But after you try the legendary brisket and ribs, you won’t want any pork. Take a look!

After getting your fill of barbecue, take a drive to downtown Nashville and visit the museum that every true Nashvillian must visit at least once.
