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.

Good BBQ

This is good for a chain restaurant. There are many BBQ places in Houston. This is good. There are some smaller places that have much better quality for the same price.

I vividly remember my first visit to Goode Co. over 20 yrs ago: a beautiful October Saturday afternoon (sunny, warm, no humidity), sitting on the "porch" at a picnic table, up to my elbows in mesquite pork ribs and sweet BBQ sauce. If we left Houston, THIS would be one of the restaurants we would miss. Line up (often out... More

This is specific to the BBQ restaurant on Kirby Dr, not I-10. It would be hard to find a more down home country restaurant in the middle of west Texas and this is located on one of the busiest streets in Houston. Look for parking behind the restaurant or across the side street after business hours. Everything on the menu... More

Great Brisket, Very good Pork ribs, that is what I had and I thought it was very good. It is a very rustic looking place that adds to the meal, I like to eat here anytime I am in the area.

We have eaten at all of the Houston Goode Co. Barbeque Restaurants and they have very good food for all ages. Even if you aren't into eating barbeque sandwiches or plates, their stuffed baked potatoes are large and good. The turkey and ham are meats that my children and grandchildren ate as they didn't want brisket, ribs or sausage that... More

Great barbeque and the best pecan pie in Houston. Food is consistently good. Dining is casual in a rather rustic setting.

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!
