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.

Enjoyable!

This places was recommended by a friend so I thought I would give it a go. I had the brisket meal as well as the brisket sandwiches. I have to admit, this was good stuff. Not the best I've ever had, but enjoyable. A different flavor, somewhat spicy and I cannot tolerate spicy (so no jalapeño... read more

I still remember my first Goode Co. BBQ experience in the late 1970s...sitting at a wooden picnic table one summer evening, indulging in the deep flavors of Jim Goode's signature culinary masterpieces and listening the sounds of Pappy Self's Orange Blossom Special. My favorites are the ribs, brisket and turkey. No one can come close to the smokey flavor and... More

Colleague from Houston wanted me to have some really good Texas BBQ. This place is all that and then some. Nice moist meats, great sauce, and real good sides. Only complaint is the Cole slaw is a little on the dry side. Needs some honey mayonnaise. Don't get dressed up because this is a true bbq 'joint'. Loved it. Located... More

Met coworkers for a recap of the weeks activities. We wanted a relaxed and somewhat quiet place so as we could discuss our mutual customers. Great food, reasonably priced and nice atmosphere. Easy ordering food & drink going down a cafeteria type line with trays etc but found it difficult when ordering extra drinks having to go through the same... More

I've going to Goode Company BBQ for years! The BBQ is consistently awesome. The pecan pie a must, the cheese bread tops off the meal.

Goode BBQ is as much an experience as a restaurant. Quaint and funky, we loved the dining area. Vintage western memorabilia, shared tables and the smell of mesquite in the air. Big ole outdoor area with picnic tables. When you come in, you grab a tray and slide through a short cafeteria line of BBQ meats and sides. I had... More

Went yesterday, after a recommendation, I was so pleased. Had a combo ribs, brisket and turkey. With rice, coleslaw and the bread. I don't normally eat bread but tried it and it's the best thing ever, probably wouldn't bother with the turkey again but overall amazing meal. Just wish it was on my door step and I'd be there every... More

The restaurant is small inside with a good size eating area outside. It is set up like a cafeteria and that is where the comparison stops. There are so many choices all of them looked great. My wife had the baked potato with Turkey, which more than enough for her. I had a combo and the only disappointment was I... More

I have been coming to Goode's BBQ for many years during trips to Houston. My husband joined me this time, and he agrees that it is great! He says he now understands why I have gone on and on about it!
