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.

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

The BBQ is outstanding as is the pecan pie. My favorite BBQ place in Houston proper. Prices are reasonable. Very popular so go early to beat the lunch crowd.

Always consistently good(e)!.Our fav BBQ place in town, we use this as our benchmark to compare other BBQ places. The BBQ sauce makes everything taste even better. The location on Kirby is small and tight, but there is outdoor seating. The Katy Frwy. location is large and has a lot of stuffed animal trophies on the wall. If you are... More

Solid meal. Both the brisket and turkey were very tender, tasty and at a nice level of smoke. The only "beef" I would have was that there wasn't enough on the plate. BBQ sauce was very good as well as the potato salad.
