Goode Company BBQ: You don’t want to miss this dinner date!

Goode Company Ribs
Address: 5109 Kirby Drive, Houston, Texas

You went to Goode Company without me???  That’s what my husband said when he discovered the leftover ribs in the fridge.

We had recently been to the Goode Company BBQ in the Memorial Area… and had the remainder of our gift card burning a hole in my purse… so the kids and I headed to Goode Company BBQ on Kirby.  (And a few hours later, my husband regretted making his own dinner plans.)

Goode Company BBQ Kirby
Both locations are casual and kid friendly… but Kirby is especially casual.

The building looks like a barn, with just a handful of tables inside and rows of picnic tables on the covered patio.  You pick up a tray, order ask you slide down the counter and pay at the end.

This location does not have kids meals, so we all ordered from the main menu.  Ribs, meat place and the non-jalapeno bread all found the way to our table.

We sat outside (the best spot for my big, sometimes messy, group). We ate and ate and ate… and refilled tea and water right next to the table. (Soda is only inside.)

The food was good Goode Company food… and everyone (minus my husband at some boring restaurant) was happy.

We did visit the bathrooms, which remind me of the old school gas station bathrooms on the side of the building (found across the midwest when I was a kid)… but these were clean.

Goode Company is not especially cheap, but it’s always a solid meal choice that makes everyone in my family happy!

We were heading back from a day at Blessington Farms, and decided BBQ would be the perfect ending to a day spent outside, jumping in the hay, digging in sand mountains and feeding the animals. We were planning to visit our favorite Goode Company Barbeque on Kirby, and were getting more and more hungry grumbles from the back of the minivan, when just off I10 in the Memorial area, we spotted another Goode Company Barbeque location!

After an exit and two quick access road uturns, we were in line for BBQ!

The location on Kirby is pretty small, with just a few indoor seats and a lot of outdoor picnic tables… but this location is a grand old house that looks like it belongs in New Orleans.

The menu looks the same and you order at the counter, pick up the food and select your own table.

We ordered a couple of kids meals with a sausage sandwich and a brisket sandwich, and also a rib plate and a baked potato.  The food is served right at the counter, so there is no wait (and no hungry complaints).

We found a table next to a giant bison and were soon elbow deep in BBQ sauce.  (Usually you carry your own tray and find your own seat, but an employee was concerned about all our trays and kindly offered to help.)

The food is always good and quick… making us all happy.

If you order the adult sized meat plates, it can get expensive… but the baked potato and kids meals are under $10.  Also, my opinion is that the brisket is better than the ribs… but I’m certainly not a BBQ expert… so tell me what you think.

Free parking is available in the big lot… and the restrooms have a changing table for the little ones.  All in all, it’s an easy and good (although not cheap!) restaurant for families!
