I love eating at Goodwood for lunch because my favorites are at a reduced price and service is very quick. I don't really like fast food and eating at GW is about the same price for a hearty meal. They have the best servers, too. I never feel awkward eating alone there.

I smoke meat quite a bit in my spare time as a hobby and this is one of the few restaurants you can get quality smoked BBQ at. I'm not the only one who thinks this as every time I go past the parking lot is full. Prices are reasonable and the quality is there, for sure.

Went for my wife's birthday. Food was good. When we go there we are looking for consistently good BBQ, and that is what we get. It isn't knock it out of the park amazing, however it is good food at a moderate price. Drinks were filled, waiter was nice and not hurried, and food was good. We will be back.

I love the friendly staff and great food! I frequently take clients to lunch or dinner here. You are always greeted immediately by a friendly host or hostess. The service is outstanding. My favorite, as simple as it seems, is the house salad and tortilla soup. Both are very flavorful and I always dip the cornbread muffin that comes with... More

We can see why this is highly rated. Friendly service. Fall off the bone ribs with a nice tangy, not sharp sauce. Nice club sandwich with in-house bacon and smoked turkey.

If you're looking for a place that is quick, with great food and service then this is the place for you. The food here was delicious, if you like brisket then you have to try it. The portions are big, so you won't be leaving there hungry for sure!

I really enjoyed my Delmonte steak, and garlic mashed potatoes. My waitress Lacy made some very good recommendations. The desert chocolate pan cake was huge and tasty - a la mode. I heard the Browne was large enough for four. Everyone was helpful and all worked together as a team to serve us with a smile. I will eat here... More

Stopped by after not eating all day from being on the road and it hit the spot and we still had food left over. Great place and they keep your drinks full.

We liked this place. The service was fast, friendly and helpful. Portions were good and everything we ate was delicious. There are so many types of BBQ so I can't say it's the best of BBQ.. But I can say it's good, very good.
