“Great barbeque, great service”

Probably the most dependable source of good brisket in town. Sausage and sides (potato salad, beans) are good too. The service is fast and friendly.

“Good Texas Barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Recommend the sliced brisket, pecan pie and baked beans. You can eat in or take out. Meat can be purchased by the pound.

“Goode BBQ! (Pun Intended)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

I was told about this place by a friend & visited while nearby. I must say (predictably) that the BBQ really was very Goode! I can't say I was blown away...to say i'm a BBQ fan is a drastic understatement and I have tried many many places over the years. I can't put this in my top 5 by any means, but I can say I do very much enjoy the food & have happily visited again when around another location. Can't go wrong with Goode BBQ - and I can say this place does deliver Goode (not mind blowing) BBQ.

“Very disappointed!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We ate there a couple of times, both times the service was lacking, the food was lacking and by the lack of people there I think it might be other feel the same way. We will not go back again.

“First rate Que”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

My hotel concierge recommended this places as the best barbeque location in Houston. He may be right.

It casual with a cafeteria-like line, in- and out-door wooden tables and benches, and a laid back friendly style. The food is fantastic, home-style, fresh, and inexpensive. The beef brisket was melt in yoiur mouth tender and the pork ribs were lean and tasty. The cheese-jalapeno bread is great, and the sides taste home-made.

You won'r be disappointed!
