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

Absolutely the best BBQ ribs ever!!!! Line was long when I arrived but moves very quickly. Best meal I have ate since arriving in Houston. If you are looking for Texas BBQ Goode Company is exactly what you are looking for!!

Fun place to enjoy really good Texas BBQ. there usually is a line but it moves quickly and it is worth the wait ;-).... The ribs are exceptional and the Brisket is tender as can be. Lots of cold beer choices and you can sit inside or out. Dog friendly patio too!

Since moving to Houston several years ago, GOODE CO. barbeque has emerged as the standard to compare all others to. My wife and I have visited all of the venues in the greater Houston area, and we are impressed by the consistency and quality at them all. No matter if you like pork, beef, or fowl, there is a barbequed... More

What a treat after a long day of walking around the city and visiting the sites of Houston! The chicken, pork, and brisket all prepared that day, and topped with their BBQ sauce - any heat level you want. The sides are very tasty, although the jalapeno beans were my favorite. Definitely worth a trip here!

Goodie Company Barbeque was advised by a friend of ours. The interior design is nice as it looks like a museum. Food is good and price is reasonable. No wi-fi though.

Excellent local BBQ spot close to River Oaks area in Houston. They offer counter service with both indoor and outdoor seating. The meats are smoked fresh on mesquite wood. The side items including their famous rice which has sausage and ham are top notch. The prices are mid-range however, the food is well worth it.

The brisket was flavored well with little fat. The beans were also good. This place is small and is set up cafeteria style. Gets very busy but moves fairly quickly.

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.
