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.

If you're looking for that home-cooked mesquite flavor, head to Goode Company BBQ. I had the bbq ribs and bbq duck. Both were great flavor. The ribs were a little tough, but the flavor was awesome. The seating was at picnic tables so be prepared to share your table with others. When completing your visit you must try a piece... More

I was looking forward to really good Texas barbeque. My husband and I were disappointed in our $40 lunch. I had brisket and pork. My husband had ribs and chicken. All of the meat was cooked well, very tender, but had very little flavor. There was very little sauce given and it was not flavorful. The potato salad was ok.... More

I am not a stranger to Goode Co. BBQ. The Kirby location was my mother's favorite BBQ place in Houston. After her passing, we knew we wanted to host a reception following her service for family and friends and enjoy a meal that she would have wanted. The Kirby location was not available, but I was directed to contact Goode... More

I've been going to Goode Co. for many years but over the past 2 years my visits have about come to a total halt. They are no longer competitive in the area they play. Their prices are 10-20% higher that BBQ restaurants with equal or better quality. Brisket and ribs are the best protein on the menu, the balance is... More

Took my family into Goode Company BBQ based off a review in a magazine I had read. To begin with, the location and decor was very cool. We had about a 15 minute wait in the line, and my wife ordered Brisket and Turkey, and I had Brisket, Sausage and Ham. One of their servers came around and helped carry... More

They do a good job! Not a pork eater, I was not happy to see the same knife touch my beef. They listened and cut my piece of beef with a new clean knife. The only problem was that all the BBQ sauces and side dishes had pork in them, so my brisket was a touch dry. Still, it was... More
