Description: Goode Company BBQ has served countless plates of savory, mesquite-smoked barbecue to Houstonians for more than 34 years (and counting). We take pride in what we do, make everything from scratch, and stay true to the Goode family’s recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. From our beef brisket or spicy pork— to our homemade jalapeño cheese bread, we serve BBQ the “goode way.”We also carry a variety of items in our online store, such as smoked turkey, turkey and pecan pie gift sets, sausage, brisket, BBQ gift baskets and Texas gift baskets.

I was disappointed with the quality this time. Meat was tough and the barbecue sauce did not have much flavor. Prices have increased dramatically in the last few years.

I went with other friends, one of them ordered the ribs but they didn't seem as good as other places. He told me they were good, but nothing out of... More

This local chain bbq is dependable and efficient, but also misses on a couple marks. The positives: the barbecue is good, nice selection of meats including links, they efficiently get you through the line. They manage the quality quite well, I've never gotten dry bbq in many visits. Usual sides. Mixed: I'm very happy that the cole slaw is so... More

Look, I know this review is going to tick someone off- every red blooded Texan I know has some barbeque or rib joint they know in a two stop sign town that they claim to be the best in the universe. So, let's establish a basic ground rule for this review- it is limited to the best traditional Texas urban... More

Tender brisket, cooked to perfection. I could drink the BBQ sauce it's that good. Super casual atmosphere. Buffet style serving line. Excellent service. Line moves quickly no matter how long. They also offer turkey, chicken, sausage and other meats. Consistently excellent!

The best part of the walking into Goode Company other than the aroma of smoke is grabbing a long neck from the ice coolers located below the three menu boards. After opening up your beer, grab a tray and utensils and let the food staff knew what you want. After paying for your food and drinks you will find plenty... More

I cannot take a trip to the Houston area and not visit here. I have tried all the different BBQ meats on the menu and they are all delicious. My favorites are the Brisket and the Duck. The BBQ sauce is different than any other I have had. I always bring some home with me. You will not be disappointed... More

Generally, I get the sliced beef sandwich with potato salad. Meat is great and tender, BBQ sauce is the best perfect balance tang with touch of sweetness. Potato Salad is just perfect. I could mention the pecan pie as it is awesome but my waist has forced me to no longer make it a part of my meals. You can't... More

Goode Co has been a Houston tradition for a long time and the food has always been very good. Always busy the restaurant offers a rustic ambience at cafe prices. The Brisket is good and the sauce (the most important) is very tasty. Worth a visit when you fancy a BBQ sandwich.

Been here about 8 times. Great atmosphere, love the mesquite wood piled up outside the place and all the saddles and taxidermy and woodwork inside. I like the chicken. sausage and duck best. They have a wider variety of meat than most barbecue places. The Pecan pie is their best item. I am not as fond of their brisket but... More
