We went for lunch. Had barbecque and baked potato loaded with meat. Had a combination plate so we could sample all the meats. Sausage and beef were outstanding. It has a cafeteria type of setting. Food is brought out to you after plating. Drinks are self serve. Seems most barbeque places are like this ones style. It was a nice... More

Goode does a great job of making traditional fall off the bone ribs. Their meat is wonderfully tender and their sauces are varied and tasty. We like the outdoor seating area. Great for families.

I will admit it -- I am addicted to the Goode restaurants, be it barbecue, seafood or the taqueria. However, I am always seduced by the smell of barbecue cooking as I drive down Kirby. Visions of stuffed baked potatoes, turkey on jalapeño bread, and mouth watering sides come to mind. As I am thinking about what to order I... More

Had friends in from out of town who wanted "real Texas BBQ" - so I took them here. We all had sliced beef sandwiches with Cole slaw and other sides and they were in heaven. Huge portions and great sauce. It's one of my favs - and they can't wait to come back.

We enjoyed the Brisket and Turkey. We always save room to the Pecan Pie. It was made fresh and my favorite.

I lived one mile from this restaurant for 20 years and ate there every 2-3 weeks. I now live 2000 miles away and when I visit Houston it is one of the MUST visit restaurants.

I was very excited to try this BBQ joint and was disappointed. The food is just ok. I expected more.

We've been to some truly memorable 'que places and while our lunch at Goode was satisfying, we wouldn't rate it among the best. Clearly, the restaurant is a hit with visitors as we could tell from overheard conversations at the crowded outdoor picnic table seating (covered) that we weren't the only newbies. The menu has a good variety of meats,... More

I had heard this place was phenomenal, and I LOVE BBQ! So I was really looking forward to sinking my teeth into some perfectly cooked brisket!! Unfortunately it was just kinda - meh. You know? However, the sides were really good - I loved the rice and the slaw - very very yummy. I also liked the setting - it... More

I had not eaten all day and read good reviews so we thought we would check it out. It was good, but not what I was hoping for. It was a subway style line up and the place was packed. The line moved quickly. There was no choice for mild or spicy sauce, so I opted for the beef barbecue... 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.
