Most of the seating is outside at picnic tables. They have large fans with misters to keep you comfortable. It's really good 'cue. We had dinner there and then followed it up with lunch there the following day.

This place is all set up for fine BBQ so why can they not deliver. The ribs were far form meaty and the sauce not much of an addition. I should have taken the chicken that look serious good. Side were average. With so much Texas BBQ around I would try somewhere else. Their Mexciac place was a gem

Brisket was very good. Inside dining room is small but plenty of seating outside. Standard bbq restaurant sides except they don't have fries. Jalapeño bread was delish!

Just fancied some bbq food last night and saw this on tripadvisor. Wow! The food here is amazing. It's nothing fancy but do not be deceived by appearances. The menu choice is ample as is the food. What would make it even better would be if the staff interacted with the customers a bit more, but this is a minor... More

We were staying post cruise in Houston and wanted to experience authentic Texas BBQ, and we were not disappointed at Goode's. The Brisket was outstanding. The restaurant has a great no frills atmosphere. I cant wait to return for lunch again on our next visit to Houston.

All I wanted to do on my visit to Texas was to eat authentic Texas barbeque, and this was it! I ate here on my first day in Houston and it was the perfect way to start my trip. I really liked the down home country feel of the restaurant and the picnic tables outside where you could smell the... More

Once you look at the menu, you walk along a cafeteria like line and order your food items. Lots of choices, but you should try the brisket. Delicious. You can order dinner of just an item or two. Your choice. The servers ( plating your food) and the cashiers are MOST friendly and helpful if you haven't been there before.... More

Truthfully, you can't go wrong with either, but the Katy Frwy location is bigger, cleaner and the food just tastes better to me. I love their chopped beef stuffed potato & jalapeno bread and my 3 sons & hubby love their brisket, spicy sausage and cowboy beans. And then...there is their famous Pecan Pie! YUM!

We had visited the modern art museum and wanted to try Texas BBQ and this place was the closest. We liked it was ranked number 21 out of 7000 plus. Parking was ample, but we came in from the back. The parking a attendant helped me find a spot quickly. Overall the staff here was helpful, fast, and efficient. I... More

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.
