Was highly recommended to us but I was disappointed. Tried a couple of different entrees in our group and found the meats to be lacking in flavor and a bit dry, also the barbeque sauce was very mild, and I tend to like either spicy or sweet, so it did not meet my expectations. I found others in the area... More

Goode Co delivers the best of Texas mesquite smoked barbecue and my favorite sauce. The brisket, turkey, jalapeno cheese bread, pecan pie, potato salad are all some of our family favorites. The epitome of great Texas food!

We have been here several times and it is a good place to go with a group. The last time we went was in December and we sat there for a few hours eating and talking - no one rushes you out. The barbecue is good, the sides are average, but I am there for barbecue so I don't bother... More

Beef brisket was delicious. Not a fancy place, trestle tables and benches, no waitresses, serve yourself but definitely worth a visit.

The beef is so tender and juicy. You can actually cut it with your fork, it just falls apart in your mouth. The smokiness is just the right amount. The turkey is excellent as well. The barbecue sauce is homemade, a great combination of spices without being overpowering. You ill like it so much you will want to purchase a... More

First thing I did when I arrived in Houston was to go to Goode Co. Recommended by a friend, he really raised my expectations. Goode did not disappoint. Nice selection. Good sauce. Their prices reflect that they are proud of their bbq. I would definitely go back!

Goode Comapny is always the most consistent BBQ meal in Houston. Never had a 'bad' meal at any of their Houston locations. Been eating at original location, and others, since 1977. I'll never turn down a chance to go to Goode Company BBQ!

Some friends and I were craving a juicy burger so we dropped in at Goode and Co. I ordered the double meat burger although l only wanted a single patty but it was more cost-effective. Rhe salad bar offers all the toppings but the burger can go up in price for addition of cheese, bacon. avocado etc. And it doesnt... More
