Goode Company is still the best to compare all others by. The sauce is the best. Top meat brisket is the best. Potato Salad is the best. Pecan pie is the best EVER!

We visited Goode Co BBQ on recommendation from a local friend. The line was long to order food, but moved quickly. This is a very interesting place with nice decorations and some old photos. I had a brisket sandwich with a side of jalapeño pinto...More

Houston generally lags central Texas when it comes to barbecue. Good Company is nothing special; the Rudy's chain is superior across the board, and that's not a very high bar. If you want good barbecue in Houston, check out Gatlin's or head down to Killen's...More

I’ve been an enthusiastic fan of Goode Company BBQ since my first visit to Houston in 1981. Even then their reputation beyond Texas was such that I would carry-on boxes of Goode Company brisket take out onto my flight back to New York for their...More

Loved Goode Company Barbecue! The brisket was tasty and juicy. Please try their coleslaw, it was so good! I thought I couldn't eat all the food on the plate but I did. Staff was very nice and efficient. Highly recommended!

Fantastic, mouthwatering BBQ. My son and I both had the brisket and it was amazing. The sides are great as well, especially the potato salad and the jambalaya. If I ever return to Houston, I'm returning here!

First time there today. The ribs were delicious. The brisket was tender but not very flavorable. I personally was not a fan of the BBQ sauce. For it to make top 4 on trip advisor list I was hoping for better in Texas BBQ.

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.
