This is my favorite Houston BBQ restaurant. I particularly love their sauce and their jambalaya. And their pecan pie is to absolutely die for!!!

Took the family based on reviews. It was as reviewed...good food and quick service. The sauce was unique...almost an Italian flavor which was really good. Also, the beans were great and had sweet potato chunks which were awesome.

There is a good bit of outdoor covered seating so even if your dog isn't allowed in the restaurant, you can go through the line and bring it right back out.

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.
