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

My husband and I were visiting Texas and knew we had to get some bbq. This was one of three and it was delicious. Good sides and really good brisket. All the meats are cut in front of you so they're fresh. Interesting environment too :)

Goode Company bbq is a little hole in the wall bbq joint. The sausage was great, the brisket needed more flavor.

We went here for a wedding reception dinner. The brisket was great and my wife loved the potato salad. I never saw a menu, so I don't know what all they serve. They were very busy. Do use the valet parking.

This place serves some of the BEST bar-b-que in Houston that I've tasted. There are a few it herself that I like, but this is in the top 5.

Being from Texas (but not Houston) and living overseas I needed a Texas BBQ fix and this hit the spot. The brisket was moist and flavorful, the pinto beans were just right, and the slaw was very nice. My companion had the pork ribs and was also very pleased. The beer was ice cold and the outdoor seating area was... More

Went here with some friends for lunch and it was very good. I had the brisket and it was excellent. The decor is very Texan so as a overseas traveller ticked what I assume to be a good representation of local place. If you go there is a Texan store across from it to buy some souvenirs

From the only in Texas collection. Awesome lunch and typical BBQ restaurant atmosphere. Outdoor seating on long tables which are great for sharing with other patrons. Inside it's colourful walls with lots of pictures and Texan art. Stand in line to order your lunch where the meat freshly cut in front of you. Add on some bread and sides, a... 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.
