I've eating there many times and the food is always great. I don't give it an excellent only because of the 'cafeteria line' serving which I don't prefer but I'm obviously in the minority! It's not the ambiance I would choose to celebrate an anniversary but for a casual meet that is convenient to get to and has the choice... More

There are two major things you have to do right to have good Bar-B-Que: 1.) do not overcook the meat. 2.) Have a great sauce to go with the meat. Now Goode has combined these two elements in preparing just the best Bar_b_Que in Houston. I always eat here. No need to test elsewhere.

Some the best BBQ in Houston. And always the best pecan pie. During holidays they have a drive thru service to pick up pies.

Casual outdoor seating at long picnic tables. Stand in line to order so there is no wait for food. Ribs, brisket, sausage all excellent. Good service. Nice choice of sides. Bring your appetite, you won't be disappointed!

We were looking for a bar b que joint and found this place. The food and service was great. It's family style seating and all the patrons were enjoying the night.

I worked nearby in the 1970s and 1980s so used to eat lunch here often. Today visiting Houston again, I found the food only average, the brisket seemed to be 'pushed' a bit, the prices quite high, and the outside seating very noisy. (perhaps the metal cover over the picnic tables amplified the noise.) The pecan pie however was as... More

We flew into Houston from Oregon and this was our first stop! We couldn't wait to have our first BBQ experience during our first trip to Texas! What a disappointment. The staff was so rude! It was evening (out of brisket) and I ordered chicken (last one) they asked me what sides I wanted and then I was ordering for... More

When you put this barbeque in your mouth! We met some people from California on our last visit. They said the front desk person at their hotel recommended Goode Company. They were estatic! We must agree. Sample everything you can when you visit. They are world famous for their Pecan pie. Have a piece while you're there, or have a... More

Description
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.
