My wife and I had dinner at Goodwood, based on the great reviews. Unfortunately, the barbeque was less than average quality. I had the brisket with beans and fries. The brisket was not warmed up, although it was quite tender. The 2 barbeque sauce selections were also disappointing in flavor. Quite disappointing for a restaurant specializing in barbeque. My wife... More

The owner stopped by to chat with us (he knew our friends) and made sure we were well taken care care of. Their BBQ itemss were done to perfection,... More

We went here for dinner based on the reviews—big mistake. Had the ribs and half chicken. Both were dry and tasteless and the sides were bland. Couldn't wait to leave. There are tons of far better restaurants in Boise, even the bars have better food. Probably plays well to the Tee Jayes crowd 'tho.

My husband & I were staying at the Homewood Suites in the same parking lot as this place. When we checked-in, we decided to walk over and try this place for dinner. Not having high expectations for a BBQ place, I went with the Smoked Turkey Sandwich while my husband opted for the BBQ Brisket Sandwich. Wow. My sandwich was... More

Great food! Service was excellent! We enjoyed our lunch. The BBQ brisket is excellent. Much to my surprise the Cole slaw was terrific. The server explain the dressing has peanut butter in it. However you'd never know. They tell you in case you have allergies with nuts. Try it! It's excellent. Will certainly return again.

The Food is wonderful...just as you expect for BBQ. Meat tender always...service is great...and you can also have them cater an event like Family Gatherings....Weddings...or even big Tailgate party's. Never a bad experience at Goodwood.

Had dinner here a couple weeks ago. It was great! We shared the 3-Meat Combo Platter: Pulled Pork, BBQ Chicken and Brisket with slaw and fries. Everything was really delicious. Our waitress recommended a couple beers that were perfect, for the type of beer that each of us wanted. All things considered, it was a fine BBQ dining experience. Goodwood... More
