We met friends here for dinner. The server we had was excellent. Between the four of us, we had quite an array of food, all of it good. Although the weather was extremely cold, the place was hopping. While this made for a festive atmosphere, it was sometimes hard to hear each other. But that's not a thing anyone can... More

This place is almost always packed. And that's because the food and service are very good. The ribs are so good, and I also enjoy the pulled pork dinner and sandwich. Must go back soon.

OMG!! The food is to die for! The Sweet Potato side dish is heaven on earth. That is what I order for my dessert every time. You won't be disappointed!! Great service also.

Stopped by Goodwood BBQ by the Boise Spectrum 20 minutes before closing and the staff were warm and attentive in their service. We've have lunch and dinner at Goodwood many, many times over the years, Kevin and staff have provided an inviting environment and consistently good food - and great service!

Just to start the review off, our server Kaitlyn was one of the friendliest servers that we've had in a while, and was very good at her job. The food there was pretty good. I got the Delmonico steak with a potato and steamed vegetables, and my wife got the fried chicken strips with macaroni and cheese. In the interest... More

This was a very disappointing BBQ (?) restaurant that everyone seemed to think was good? When I went with friends, the BBQ was way too "sweet" not enough "heat" and left a strange taste in my mouth. I'm from the Midwest and this isn't the type of BBQ I was used too. I really don't consider Goodwood to be a... More

Excellent food, had the two meat plate, brisket & turkey. Very flavorful, their sauce is sweet & smokey, the potato salad was very good. Big portions, very nice clean atmosphere in the restaurant. Good location, near hotels, right off the freeway. A great place to eat in Boise

Having eaten really great BBQ in the south, we were truly thrilled to find such great smoked BBQ in Boise. What a surprise. I had the pulled pork sandwich, someone else had burnt ends, and another the ribs. All our plates were delicious. The slaw, made with a touch of peanut butter, was so creamy, and good. So glad we...
