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.

OK, we are from SC and have eaten BBQ in NC, SC and TN but never anything like Goode's BBQ. The place had several folks eating there so it must have been us. My wife took a few bites and said she could not eat it. I could not wait to get back to our room and brush my teeth.... More

While at a Houston Texans football game, the thought of BBQ sounded good. The food looked great as I order the two meat meal with two sides. I order brisket and chicken, beans and potato salad. The brisket was a little tough but I worked through it. The brisket has more flavor than the chicken but the chicken was more... More

I gave this spot 2 stars only because the BBQ was good, however, the service was bad. The BBQ is served in a cafeteria style line (as expected), but the inside space is so small that waiting in line is difficult, since you are pretty much standing right on top of other diners or outside the front door. The servers... More

Neither the pork ribs or BBQ sauce was up to my standard. On a 1-10 scale I would give the ribs a 6 and the sauce a 4.5--the sauce tasted like like somebody opened a can of tomato paste, added water and few spices, it was gross. It you want good ribs , go somewhere else. I didn't try the... More

If you see the name Goode Company on the restaurant you can be sure of a quality, plentiful Neal. Whether it's BBQ, Sea Food, or their Taqueria you meal will be predictably good consistency is the bane of the game for all Goode's places.

Don't expect a fancy dinning room, there is no wine steward, but grab a tray and get in line. I've eaten barbecue all over Texas and the brisket here is second to none. Just plain ole good BBQ and don't pass up the Texas Style baked beans. Now take your tray outside and find a seat at the picnic tables... More

Trying to get parking during a rush hour is nearly impossible. Very busy place and once inside not what I expected. Food was OK but what a rush. Assembly line service is not my kind of place.

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.
