Yes, that's correct, and I have had ribs in North Carolina and Kansas City, MO. Simply delicious! I had a half-rack with slaw and fries...absolutely finger-licking great! My wife had a grilled chicken salad which she loved. Our server Hillary was very sweet. We complimented the manager Steve and he treated us to a dessert. It was a brownie sundae... More

My husband and I made a last minute trip to check out a motor grader we were interested in buying. We were excited when we found this place 2 doors down from our hotel. Very yummy food and great service!

This spot was within walking distance of our hotel and could accommodate a large party. We are pretty picky about our bbq as we’ve spent a great deal of time in the south and this grub passed our taste test! The portions are huge so we all got to munch on leftovers the next day.

Our expectations may have been set too high but half the food (baby back ribs/ raging chicken salad) was average. The ribs were dry and hard. Salad a little limp. The brisket sandwich was good, onion rings were excellent and the brownie sundae was good. Service was excellent and the atmosphere perfect. Loved the décor and general settings.

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.
