This is the most awesome place to pick-up food to take home and serve a crowd for a party or special event! They make it so easy - just call ahead, and when you pull in to a reserved spot by the door they deliver your order to your car! I have done this for family reunions, a graduation party,... More

It was National BBQ Day and a friend suggested Goode Company, she'd never been either. I had ribs, of course, and decided to try something different. Duck is definitely different. It was delicious. I don't get dry rub ribs too often, so that was treat. I had some kind of beans, Austin beans I think, with other stuff in them... More

Even if you are not far away from the modern Houston-Texas, you'll dive in the far west for a while. In that stop you'll find the restaurant, an armory, and a general store. Everything a cowboy need to "ReFuel" !! But coming back to the food, the BBQ it's simply outstanding, and of course my suggestion is for the Brisket... More

Goode Co. BBQ, could quite possibly be my favorite restaurant. Everything is delicious, but you can't go wrong with ribs, brisket, and the famous jalapeño bread. Save some room for dessert because this place is home to the best peacan pie there is.

I have always loved Goode Co. BBQ's potato salad and brisket. The company I worked for in the late 90's always had it catered for big meetings. I definitely prefer Goode Co. over any other BBQ joint in Houston!

Went here for a lunch during a business trip to Houston, some of the best brisket I have had, wish I was in the area longer to try more items. Will definitely be returning if I come back

It's a bit kitschy, but the cafeteria style and super American ambience were perfect after we picked up our friends from the international terminal. Food was so good! I wish I could have taken some home with me to Hawaii!

Goode Company has been our go-to BBQ joint for over 20 years. While the prices have risen (in fact it’s almost at the upper end of what we can afford for BBQ), the food stays the same. Always dependable, always good, always tender and an excellent example of how Texas BBQ should be. Don’t leave without a piece of the... More

Goode Company BBQ has served countless plates of savory, mesquite-smoked barbecue to Houstonians for more than 34 years (and counting). We take pride in what we do, make everything from scratch, and stay true to the Goode family’s recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. From our beef brisket or spicy pork— to our homemade jalapeño cheese bread, we serve BBQ the “goode way.”We also carry a variety of items in our online store, such as smoked turkey, turkey and pecan pie gift sets, sausage, brisket, BBQ gift baskets and Texas gift baskets.
