I ate here with a work associate. The pulled pork and the smoked turkey are very good. The service was a little above average.

We have tried a lot of local restaurants and, for an area with so many new choices, continue to believe that the quality at Goodwood BBQ is so much higher than the rest. Their smoked prime rib is out of this world and the Pit Boss burger is really great. Give them a try!

Frankly after dining here recently, I'm surprised to see this in the top 10 list of restaurants in Boise as I've had better BBQ at Dickey's or Famous Dave's. Plenty of options, fast service but don't have any expectations that this will be an outstanding meal.

Goodwood BBQ looks straight out of the 'chain-restaurant cookie cutter' mold, but so does everything else in the Spectrum St area of Boise. The food and service are pretty damn good considering. We had a 1/2 rack of Baby Back Ribs that was well cooked until the meat was falling off the bone. The ribs were very meaty, and the... More

Overly commercialized. Very cookie cutter BBQ that failed me. Baby backs and brisket lacked flavor. The potato salad was really good. Mac and cheese was good but was nothing anyone else could do.

Here for work, and not normally the way I eat!! But I was with a co worker and thought..when in Rome. I loved every minute of the calorie indulging experience here! The options are hard to wade through but I ended up playing it safe. There really is no BBQ place like this. You must try...but bring an appetite.

I'll admit it, I love beef. Goodwood is my go to place for taking out of towners, special occasions, or anytime I feel like treating myself to a great meal. My favourite dinner is the Mopped Delmonico - smoked prime rib that's been mopped with Goodwood's sweet and sassy bbq sauce. Their dinner salads come with bacon, eggs, in house... More

had dinner here the other night. Was starving so I went with the 3 meat plate. BBQ chicken, sausage and brisket. WOW. All three were very good (sausage is amazing) and the beans on the side were great. prices decent, service was average and walking away stuffed was an understatement. Good choice

Growing up in the South, BBQ has been a part of my life for as long as far back as I remember. While I was glad to escape the heat and humidity when I moved West, I was thoroughly disappointed in the BBQ offerings. Until I was introduced to Good Wood. This place can go toe to toe with the... More
