Everybody loves an original, and you're not likely to find too many things more original than this. It would be an understatement to call the Goode Company Barbeque on Kirby a Houston institution. It's a tradition that has stood the test of time.

Great fall of the bone ribs

If you are looking for a great little BBQ place in Houston, this is it. I have eaten at many BBQ places in different parts of the country and I have found a correlation between the size of the restaurant and whether or not it has good BBQ. The smaller the restaurant, the better the BBQ. If you are... read more

There is always the best, Pecan Lodge, and then the rest. However, Goode Company makes a mean brisket. The added option of a brisket po-boy sandwich was nice. The potato salad was a great choice as a side. For a lunch option it was a little pricey, but it's definitely worth another stop. The Texas flair and the added ambient... More

This place has the swagger of a Texas Bar-B-Q joint--great signs outside, Texan ambiance (with a saddle, animal heads etc.), perfect employee T-shirts, beer on ice, lots of different kinds of meats, and outside picnic tables. Having lived in Texas for 'nigh-on to 39 years, I do feel qualified to also comment on the food. First, the beer was definitely... More

We were passing by the restaurant so we decided to stop in and check it out. The restaurant is cafeteria-style where you order at the counter, collect there, pay for your meal and then sit down at the table. We had ordered two meats which comes with salad and sides. The meats we had ordered were chicken and beef ribs.... More

Great barbecue restaurant with outside seating. Love the option of Jalepeno bread on your sandwich. Also, the jalepeno pinto beans are just the right amount of spicy. Very casual place where kids can run around outside on a great weather day!

In Houston for the first time on a business trip. Looking foward to trying Texas BBQ for the first time. The inside seating area was small and crowded. The brisket and potato salad were excellent. The chicken breast, sausage, and baked beans were disappointing. The prices were high, especially since this is not a full service restaurant.

The Goode Co. barbecue is very good and the atmosphere is very nice. The pecan pie is fantastic and make really nice Christmas gifts for friends and family. They come in a nice wooden box. They have other great gift items as well.

Very good brisket and very very good jalepeno bread. This is a must for all barbecue lovers. The lemonade was great and so were the sides.

Your typical texas barbecue joint - line up, grab your beer from an ice chest, place your order and take your food to a table (if you can find one). The place doesn't have very many tables inside, so finding an open one on a Friday evening was a bit tough. There is lots of outdoor seating, though. We had... More

It's good, nothing special. Of course, here in Texas, there's a BBQ or Mexican place almost on every corner. Goode' is one of them.
