Jalepeno Bread

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.

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
