GREAT BBQ

Never had a bad meal at Goodwood. I've had most everything on thee menu over the years of eating here. Doesn't matter if it is lunch or dinner you won't be sorry you came. I've always said that the potato salad is almost as good as mom's.

I have had many good and great meals at Goodwoods. They are very helpful in working around the food limitations of the entire family group. I especially liked the Cobb salad that I tried for the first time this week. It can be a little noisy but it is well worth it. I have the sweet potato casserole every time.

Been visiting goodwood from opening. Tried most menu items. Reasonable priced. Very good and consistent through time. Pulled pork brisket and ribs are big hits. The chicken wrap and salads are also excellent. Wings are not the typical industrial fried with franks you find around town. Potato salad like my mom use to make.

Their frys are top notch and better than the BBQ. The BBQ beans aren't worth ordering and the friends I had dinner with agreed that the BBQ was average. I also thought it was over priced for BBQ. I eat out fairly often and thought $43 per couple with soft drinks was too much for BBQ that was nothing special.... More

A day of vacationing in Boise, I noticed this restaurant highly rated on Tripadvisor and BBQ sounded great. We arrived early in the day and had to wait shortly for the 11 AM opening, wanting lunch before going bicycling. We ordered beef brisket sandwiches - thy were huge - multiple slices of beef brisket, excellent sauce, huge hoagie size bun.... More

Looked at TA reviews and was surprised to find one so highly rated next door to the hotel in which I stayed. Food was very good and waitstaff excellent. Has the decor and feel of a chain restaurant but the people were all well chosen and/or trained - very friendly and attentive which always makes an eating experience better.

Yes, I had to question a ribeye, already full of flavor, question what it would be like cooked and slathered in BBQ sauce. And the answer is yes, it is awesome. The juiciness of the steak along with the BBQ Sauce is quite tasty. Couple the steak with an Idaho Spud, fully loaded, and it offers a good, fulfilling dinner.
