Nothing wrong, nothing stood out. Typical large portions served in USA. Nice coleslaw, frozen fries, chicken was fully cooked but far from fall off the bone cooked. The brisket was nice. Smoked turkey was probably the highlight. Good service.

We just got back from Goodwood and we loved it. Super friendly! Super fast, we were in and out in about 30 minutes. Husband had ribs, I had the pulled pork and turkey. Way too much food, it comes with 2 sides but only ate one. Definitely have the potato salad. Best I have ever had--earns its name as Moms!... More

I took my son here for dinner as we both love barbecue. We both had the Pulled Pork Sandwich. It was good but far from the best I have ever had. Lots of pork and not enough sauce for me. I have had better ones at the baseball game in Seattle. Nice atmosphere...lots of people and decent service.

With great reviews and near our hotel, we gave this restaurant a try and were glad we did. The food was outstanding and the service was some of the best that we'd had in a while. Pop refills were brought to the table when our glasses were still half full and without having to be asked for. Our meals came... More

I hate to give negative reviews, but Goodwood certainly didn't come through for us last week. We stay frequently in Boise. As a small family, we ordered Chopped Pork, Brisket, and Chicken. The brisket didn't look like a true brisket that has been smoked for 8 hrs plus; more like thin cuts of bottom round, flavorless without the xtra heaping... More

The food tasted fresh with a wood smoke taste. A little on the spendy side, but you get a plate full. The customer service was great. Servers were constantly asking if everything was okay.

The Barbecue is decent. The loaded mashed potatoes and texas sheet cake are killer. The staff is very friendly, and I highly recommend the onion rings and the jalapeño margarita. The salad dressings are all homemade and this might be the best ranch dressing ever.

There is a cluster of restaurants in this section of town and I think this is the best one by far. Goodwood has a wide selection of meats and sauces to select on the menu. The service is friendly and very attentive. I had the giant beef ribs and they were delicious and cooked perfectly! CONS: the atmosphere is pretty... More

We've been in Boise for three years now, and finally made it out to Goodwood. My husband loves BBQ, especially Texas style brisket, which is what we both had. Although it was tender and flavorful, we both thought it lacked the true Texas flavor, and the sauce was a little heavy handed. I'm not usually a fan of potato salad,... More

Had dinner at Goodwood while staying in Boise. Ordered the beef brisket plate with mac and cheese and baked beans. Also ordered 8oz prime rib with steamed veggies and loaded baked potato. Everything was tasty. Especially the prime rib. It was cooked perfectly and the horseradish served with it was so good. The waitress was very nice and attentive. The... More
