Goode Company Barbecue is your Houston restaurant must
You’ll want to heed that Lone Star state wisdom. For Goode Company is the best barbecue I’ve ever tasted and I’ve done barbecue in a little renowned shack in Birmingham, Alabama. Still nothing close to Goode Company.
Go once and you’ll find yourself drifting back during your Houston trip. Suddenly every other dinner choice will be, “Well, how about barbecue?”
Forget that ribs obsession at Goode Company. They’re good here, but this is place where the brisket steals the show. The turkey barbecue is very underrated too. The potato salad is a not-to-be-missed side. Yes, this is a place where potato salad wows.
The first time you head to Goode Company, you’ll need a map. Located on Kirby at Highway 59, it’s sort of the last spot you’d expect to find an authentic barbecue joint. You’re in the middle of a strip mall stretch with Arby’s and gas stations around. Then the wood barn side appears and you pull into the tiny little parking lot.
There are picnic tables outside under an awning where almost everyone eats as cars whiz by just up the road. It’s as casual as casual can be and if it’s packed, which it often is, you’ll get to know your neighbors at the community picnic tables.
Try one of the Texas beers too. And if you’re really into the spirit, there’s a barbecue museum right next door.
When food’s this good, it deserves it own shrine.

For the record, according to Tim McDonald, Alabama barbecue sucks compared to Florida's. Not saying I agree, just sayin'.
If you're still in Houston on April 20th, Magnolia Creek is running a special of $45 for golf/cart/range and play all day. They are a 27 hole links course and one of the best in the area.
How are you going to earn your bread today, Chris Baldie?
Can you do that without Wie-bashing?
On point - yes Goode Company is good barbecue (and their brisket IS better than the ribs), but in Houston the best barbecue is at Pappas.
Or come on down to central FL and hook up with Sonny's or Fred Fleming's - now THAT is some fine food!
Those in the know go to Thelma's, or Drexler's, or Williams Smokehouse. Not as fancy, but the 'cue is far more flavorful.
Goode Company does have a great seafood spot across Kirby; head there to enjoy the OTHER native Texas cuisine.
