We got some take out on the way home from work. The ribs fell off the bone good. The pulled pork sandwich was to die for. A little pricy for take out, but worth every penny in my opinion. Take advantage of the condiments you can grab yourself.

Best barbecue turkey sandwich in town. I smother it in onions and jalapenos and prefer it on a bun. Glad they started toasting the buns. Makes it that much better.

I was with locals and it was determined this would be the best place for BBQ (and that insanely huge Armadillo next door was fun!). Laid back ordering style, grab your own drinks, trays, and cutlery, and family style seating.

We wanted some bbq and work colleagues recommended this. The brisket and ribs were absolutely delicious. Good few beers and wine to accompany them and fab sides. Super tasty. The Amardillo Palace opposite was a great bar for a few drinks to finish too.

We were looking for good barbecue, so we turned to trip advisor and found this place. We were not disappointed. This is very good Que. I had the brisket and ribs, which were both excellent. Their sauce is slightly sweet. I also had the baked beans and jambalaya. Beans were unusual since it had sliced apples. Never had beans this... More

We came on the advice of the bellhop at our hotel. He definitely led us in the right direction. The line is cafeteria style and there is limited seating inside. We sat at the picnic tables outside. The setting is great! The good was fantastic!

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.
