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.

their brisket is really incredible!

Was in Houston on business and getting hungry; was driving along the Katy Freeway (I-10) and noticed this place so pulled in as I was in the mood for barbecue. I ordered the 2 meat plate - ribs and brisket. I received 3 nice meaty ribs and then a decent stack of sliced brisket. The brisket was... read more

This place was recommended by my brother who lives nearby in Houston. It is a large western style cafeteria kitchen which you pick and choose what you want to eat. The brisket, sausage and the sides with the jalapeno bread were all cooked to perfection and thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely worth a visit when in the area. They also have take... More

I don't understand why this place has recived so many good reviews. My boyfriend and I dined in this establishment last night and we were taken aback by the seemingly overpriced menu in such a run down hole, in the wall! Oh and then comes the food! Aside from the fact that your food is served to you in an... More

Texas BBQ done right. Love every thing about this place. The interior has a stuffed buffalo with a saddle on it and there are saddles and old lever action rifles everywhere. But the real attraction is the food. Beef brisket, ribs, sausage, turkey, beans, potato salad, jalapeno bread; it's all excellent and their sauce is awesome. You will not be... More

Chopped brisket sandwich Baked beans 2 soft drinks 19$ Visiting from out of state I decided to stop by since this is ranked as Houston top 5 bbq restaurants. Food is fresh and taste good. But it is nothing special and way overpriced. I'm sure some menu items are better but overall it's average at best.

Lived off and on in Houston for about 12 years from the 70's to the 90's and this is the BBQ place I measure all others to. In my travels none have measured up and I look forward to every short visit to Houston now so that I can re-sample the goods. While Goode Co has a full range of... More

This review is for the Katy Freeway location. Their original location is on Kirby Drive. Both locations are in Houston. When you go in, you grab a tray and place your orders as you go down the line (cafeteria style). For the two of us (adults), we ordered a sausage BBQ sandwich on jalapeno bread, a 'lean' beef brisket sandwich,... More

I ordered a 3 meat meal and they layered the meat and smothered it in sauce. The ribs were large and meaty, smoked to perfection. The sausage had a great flavor and went well with the sauce. The brisket was buried beneath the other meats and did not get any sauce, which was a great thing. The brisket was so... More

This is my all time favorite home town meal. Texas BBQ at its best. Most delicious smoked BBQ Brisket I have ever had. Potato and coleslaw are delicious. Ice cold beer as you enter. Doesn't get much better than this in my opinion. Pecan Pies are the best and you can order online as well. Send to a friend. Have... More

I had been anticipating eating barbeque at Goode's for some time and once my daughter came into town for her Christmas break from North Carolina, I thought it would be a good time to show her some "Texas BBQ." Well it was good but I feel let down that I didn't show her a very good example of what really... More
