Goode Co. Texas Bar-B-Q

5109 Kirby Dr., Houston, TX - (713) 522-2530
A large eating barn (with a nice covered outdoor patio) surrounded by stacks of wood and the perfume of smoldering mesquite. Inside, there's always a line leading to the cafeteria-style counter. Goode Co.'s brisket is long-smoked, velvet-soft and radiant with essential beef flavor. The pecan pie served for dessert is legendary.

I don't have the feeling the chocolate pie is made in house, but it is still a fine way to end your meal.

A close view of Goode Co.'s brisket shows just how luxurious it is.

Before you step to the counter to order your meat, you pass these tubs full of ice and bottles of beer and wine.

Since Jim Goode opened his barbecue in Houston in 1977, it has become a Texas-food landmark. That shaded area this side of the barn is a nice open-air patio.

The front of the building shows one of my favorite Roadfood slogans, which can also be found on the employees t-shirts.  The firewood you see stacked in front can be purchased.
