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.

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

The pecan pie is very delicious and we enjoyed every bite of it. If you are around town, grab one to go. It is phenomenal.

Oh. My. God. I have missed REAL BBQ. The brisket was tender and juicy, the sauce was divine, the ribs melted off the bone. Paired it with a fabulous selection of hometown ice cold beers (yes, beerS!). The price is perfect. You MUST eat here!

We were lucky because we happened to go when there was only a small lineup. My wife and I each ordered a two meat platter ($14.95). I had jalapeno sausage and brisket and my wife had brisket and ribs. Each platter comes with two sides and jalapeno cheese bread. Everything was tasty and portions were a good size. I only... More

BBQ is consistent and good everytime I am in there. Sliced beef is the best and combined with potato salad (outstanding) and a huge piece of pecan pie, your calorie nirvana is complete. Plenty of room to sit and chat and lines move quickly/

I have been to this branch of Goode Company BBQ a couple of times. The most recent was in Feb this year. The food at their other branch at Kirby had better tasting food. The staffs were equally friendly at both sites. The main plus point here is the larger eating area and tends to be less crowded. The beef... More
