Description: Everybody loves an original, and you're not likely to find too many things more original than this. It would be an understatement to call the Goode Company Barbeque on Kirby a Houston institution. It's a tradition that has stood the test of time.

“Best in the West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I have been going to Goode Company Barbecue for over 20 years. There certainly are plenty of other good BBQ places in Houston since, after all, this is Texas. But Goode Company on Kirby is my place, and I like theirs the best. I have taken quite a few friends from out of town there, and they all loved it. My personal favorite is a chicken dinner with rice and cole slaw, but they have so much other great stuff sometimes it's hard to choose. I like the way the place is run, too. The people who work there are always friendly, and they always give you exactly what you want. And by the way, if you want some great fajitas or enchiladas, just go across the street to their Taqueria. No, they didn't pay me to write this. I just love eating their food.

“New Year's Day party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Got take out for a New Year's Day party. Asked to pick it up at noon. They were just about finished slicing and packing it up. Nice to know it was good and fresh. Everyone enjoyed it very much!

“GR8T BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I highly recommend the bbq & ribs. Great smoke flavor and taste. I recommend that after your meal you order some to go because this makes an excellent late night snack.

“Favorite place for barbeque!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love this place. Bare bones atmosphere - heaters (or fans) on open patio, picnic benches, seat yourself after going through line. But, the best brisket and sauce and rolls and pecan pie....yummy!
