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.

Super casual with superb BBQ food

Not being a Texan, I don't know if this is a typical and authentic spot for Texas ribs and BBQ food, BUT being a Northener it definitely feels like it is! The indoor eating area is rather small, but there plenty of picnic tables on the outdoor terrace...with fans! The format is cafeteria... read more

Last night in Houston and hadn't had any bbq, yet! Couldn't leave without trying it here. I'm from Florida so I was really curious to see how different it was. Though, I love my bbg at home smothered in sauce, Good Co. Bbq needed none. I had chicken and my son had brisket. They were both so so good! The... More

We choose to eat at Goode Company Barbeque because they have excellent food and great service. When someone in the family suggest barbeque there is never any doubt that we will choose Goode Company Barbeque.

Picked up some food just before closing after a long drive to our hotel nearby. The place looked amazing so we were sad to not be able to eat in! They bought our food over to us whilst we took a look around, and even bought us fresh drinks bottles so they were cold! The food was amazing, the fries... More

This was my first visit to Houston and I used trip advisor to find a place to eat. Turned out Goode Company was recommended by friends and trip advisor and for good reason. Goode decor is what I think of for old western with taxidermy heads on the walls, its small and you order through serving line. The food is... More

I thought I had eaten good brisket before I came to Houston and ate at Goode Company. This place is phenomenal. Be sure you grab a slice of the pecan pie and prepare yourself for the sugar coma that is sure to ensue! Just head back to your room and sleep it off! EXCELLENT!!!

Goode Company has great barbecue. I personally love there sausage sandwich on cheesy jalepeno bread. Everything else is very good too.

We order out from here about once every couple of weeks. The chicken white meat can sometimes be a bit dry but it's a quality bird and the sauce makes it. The chopped beef sandwich is one of my top five in Houston. Sides are consistently good. The baked potato is always large and tasty. On a nice evening it's... More

People keep telling me that they found something better. Every time I try theirs I come back to Goode bbq. I usually order the turkey on jalapeño bread. The turkey looks dry when you watch them cut it... but it NEVER is. It is always tasty and moist. My husband is a big fan of the chopped beef. Usually that... More

This is an average BBQ place. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. It is close to our office so it is a quick, quality meal. Service is always good, food is good, it is just the fact nothing stands out. No particular meat, sauce, food or service is memorable. They seem to be known for their... More
