Stopped for lunch. Husband and I had Monday special; sliced beef sandwich, slaw and a side. Good was very good, prices awesome. Will definitely go back. An improvement would be to remove some Knic knacks for a cleaner look.

Hands down the best place I have found for food in Perry. The brisket was solid and the sides were fantastic. Brisket is served with garlic toast and the house sauces are really good. My recommendation is the "hot" bbq sauce. Hot is a bit of a misnomer. It has a kick but it's not hot so you can taste... More

Passing through to visit family and liked the ratings on TA. Had to stop in. We generally order pulled pork and/or brisket. Everything went right. BBQ was delicious, service was great and the total bill was less than $20 (including tax and tip) for lunch. What's not to like? We'll definitely be back.

We stopped here on the way back from a trip to Texas. Stopped at a few barbecue places on the trip because I absolutely love barbecue and boy can no other place compete! What they care about is the food which is absolutely amazing. You don't need a fancy building or atmosphere it's all about the food. Service is great.... More

Found Goodman's by random accident a year ago while camping in Keaton Beach. This year we realized we were travelling KIND of near Perry again, and made a rather significant detour to hit it for lunch. We are enroute to The Keys from Minnesota. Their smoked meats are amazing, choice of sauces hit the entire heat range and prices are... More
