I was staying near Rice without a car and in search of barbecue. Goode was within walking distance, and looked promising - big barn-like building with picnic tables outside, a good crowd, cafeteria-style service, and ice cold beers in an old Coke cooler. I had brisket with the Austin baked beans and coleslaw. Unfortunately, the barbecue was pretty unremarkable. The... More

Even if the queue stretches out of the front door one should not miss this restaurant. The queue moves reasonably fast and the food is worth it. You have a choice of different meats, cuts and preparations as well as of vegetables, and not the least good beers (or wine). Our group all made different choices, and all were convinced... More

Awesome brisket, very tender and tasty. This place is obviously popular as there was a lineup when I arrived on a Thursday night, but it moves very quickly as people get their food cafeteria style from the counter and then seat themselves. There is indoor seating as well as a large covered outdoor area. Love the house made jalapeno bread... More

We have been on a two week tour of this fabulous State and realized that something was missing: Texan BBQ! Ol' reliable Trip Advisor sang the praises of the Goode Company Barbecue in Houston and so it became a Must Do! Man oh Man what a joy. Good sign was that the parking lot was full and that the locals... More

We were somewhat disappointed in the meals we had. The quantity should have been greater for the price paid and the BBQ sauce was not what we expected. On a positive all of the meat was very tender and tasty.

Good brisket but the sauce was more tomato and less spice than I like. Not cheap, $42 for 3 sandwiches, a beer and wine.

I love barbeque and am willing to stand in line at Goode Company Barbeque. It is that good. The beef brisket is will smoked to perfection and tender enough to cut with a fork. The sausage varys some in both texture and flavor on different days. My personal favorite are the pork ribs. I can not get enough of them.... More
