“Goodies was not Good”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Went there for lunch today. Half a dozen flies buzzing around inside, and a bugzapper 2/3 full of dead flies did not bode well in terms of atmosphere. The brisket sandwich and coleslaw had about 6 thinly sliced strips of very fatty brisket, and was a little tough to eat. Sauce was okay, a little tang, but not overpowering. Cheapest buns imaginable. For two of us, we were given 1 napkin. Will not go back when so many better options exist here in Cincinnati. Plus for 1 brisket sandwich (mostly bun), 2 oz of cole slaw, and tap water my bill was over $6. I know Goodies needs to make a profit, but he don't need a 50% margin!

“Great Sauce!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Great barbecue! Great sauce! They smoke everythign out back on charcoal... delicious!
Their $5 lunch specials are a fantastic value! Try the rib tips or pulled pork! Although, there's nothing bad on the menu.
Don't expect anything fancy. The eating area is small and "functional", but that's it. The staff are very nice and always greet you with a smile.

“Good BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

I visit Goodies about once a month, The food is usually good. the sauces are good not a big selection at Hot or Mild... but both are good. The pork ribs are usually prepared very well. once in awhile they can be alittle dry and tough. Service is good, sometimes there can be wait like fridays or saturday nights or days checks come out. they have a drive up for call ahead orders. They have other items on the menu besides BBQ. And I consider it a good value.
