I had the duck dinner and it was great. Nice outside casual seating and the staff was extremely friendly. The side dishes were all great. Great fun.

We went this weekend while visiting relatives and the BBQ was pretty good, not fantastic. We had the chopped brisket, sliced brisket, lean pork ribs and the tea smoked duck. The brisket was great, the ribs alright. The duck was a little disappointed. It was lacking flavor, it was cooked through, juicy but amazingly tough. Had to keep dipping it in the sauce which was a disappointment also. The BBQ sauce was just not our favorite. The sides were really nothing to write home about. The homemade buns were great, the jalapeno cheese bread outstanding. And the real deal was the pecan pie. It was out of this world.

The atmosphere was really fun and upbeat. Just wish the sauce, duck and sides were a little better.

Goode Company Bar-B-Que in 'The Village' is the best Texas style BBQ. Full Stop. There are no nods to elegance or comfort; one stands in line to pick up a long neck beer or big glass of sweet tea and then goes through a cafeteria style line to acquire the vittles. There are a few tables inside and picnic tables under an awning outside.

No one cares. I would sit next to an axe murderer if I meant I could eat this 'que.

I have begged them to ship. Alas, no luck. They DO ship some things ... ask about the unique pencil holders.

In case one may have missed the point ... this is really the place to eat God's food in Houston.

GOODE CO. It is great BBQ- but beware the meal may cost you several hundred dollars in repairs! Please BEWARE- There is a ring of Thieves that hang out in the parking lot that break into cars.
I visited about a month ago, and while i was eating someone bashed my windows in to get some items on my passenger seat.
Yesterday I visited and I saw fresh glass from someone else's car being broken into.
This has become a regular thing at this location- please beware- i spoke to some of the workers in the restaurant and they said this happens at least twice a month
