This was my second stab at trying Texas BBQ and was better, but still not great. They offer free ice cream cones for diners, which is a nice touch to cleanse the palette. I ordered the brisket served on a loaded baked potato. The potato was enormous. The BBQ sauce was on the side. The sauce was thicker than water,... More

Amazing BBQ and service. So many options, I saw other food that wasn't on the menu that I would have preferred to eat. But it was very good and flentiful. $18 per plate, so kind of pricey and from the outside it doesn't appear that way, but it is downtown. The kids menu didn't even offer the actual bbq, just...

Well, our family loves Goode Co. BBQ! This original location on Kirby is awesome. I mean, it's just a great place to go for lunch, to grab dinner there or to go... even head across to the Goode's Armadillo Palace next door for live music and a great bar! We just cannot say enough good things about the smoked meats... More

Goode Company BBQ is an absolute favorite with locals and tourists alike. It is a very casual restaurant that serves up mesquite BBQ beef, chicken, sausage, turkey, and ribs and delicious house made sides including potato salad, two different kinds of beans, dirty rice, cole slaw, etc. and great house made pecan pie and chocolate cream pie! You can even... More

We have been going to Goode Co. BBQ for years. Great place to stop in on Kirby Dr. Very accessible. Always pretty crowded. I went the other day when it was really hot outside and scooted right in. First time that has ever happened. Highlights are the Brisket, Jalepeno Pintos, BBQ Sauce, Jalapeño Cheese Bread and Pecan Pie. Everything else... More

If you're looking for good BBQ in Houston, you cannot go wrong here. Food and atmosphere are authentic.There are several choices for both entrees and sides. Brisket can be ordered sliced or chopped and both are tender. Sausages and ribs are also good choices. It can get crowded especially during lunch but the line moves fast. Second location on I-10...

Great Texas BBQ! Brought friends here from out of town and they RAVED about it all. Couldn't get enough. Loved the Cole slaw and potato salad and thought the pecan pie was the best they'd ever had. Since I live here, it's our go-to place for BBQ so I understand their enthusiasm.

Fun place for the whole family. Decorated with cowboy memorabilia. The cafeteria style serving line is fast, portions are generous and very tasty. Prices are reasonable so you can't go wrong here especially for lunch. Note: True BBQ lovers will notice that macaroni/cheese and banana pudding are missing from the menu.

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.
