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 grew up in North Carolina and on Carolina BBQ, so learning about Texas BBQ is a whole new world. But what a journey. My wife told me that Goode Company was the best in Houston in her opinion and so she took me. Generous portions, homemade sausage, rib meat that is only held onto the bone by a chef... More

I've visited this location for many years for lunch and dinner. The food is consistently high quality. Relatively expensive for BBQ, the prices reflect the quality of the food as well as the part of town in which it is located. The staff is always friendly. First timers will enjoy the authentic western memorabilia. Highly recommend.

Goode isn't bad, but it's nothing that will knock your socks off, either. The brisket was a touch dry and the sauces are only mediocre. Great flavor in the meats, though. Would definitely go back, but it's not my first choice for Texas BBQ.

I was expecting great barbecue and did not get that. It was average at best. My children also did not care for it. Barbecue sauce was also meh.. Try another spot

Goode Company serves authentic Texas BBQ. It is served cafeteria style and everything was delicious! The décor can be called picnic style. We had the turkey and the chicken and we couldn't finish them between 3 people, portions are generous.

Always the best in food and service. The food is very fresh and there are plenty of choices. Sometimes a bit noisy but they are helpful to seat you away from the noise if you like. Excellent if you have older parents to take to dinner.

Goode Company was a star at one time but they've been left on the dust off all the new BBQ joints that have opened the past 2 decades. Their brisket fails to compare most, their ribs are still up there (and the best meat on the menu), the rest is just average. Their sauce is one of the worst on... More
