Fodor's Review

Down-home Texas barbecue is prepared ranch-style—mesquite-smoked and served with tasty red sauce. Patrons young and old line up on the sidewalk to eat at picnic tables on the covered patio. A standard order is the chopped-beef brisket sandwich on jalapeño-cheese bread. Don't skip the celebrated pecan pie for dessert. Goode Company Hamburgers and Taqueria across the street serves—no surprise here—hamburgers and tacos, as well as great weekend breakfasts. And for

some honky-tonk atmosphere, shuffleboard, dominoes, pool, and lots of cold beer, check out Goode's Armadillo Palace next door. You can't miss the place: it's the building with the giant stainless-steel armadillo standing guard out front.

BBQ isn't the only thing that's Goode...

The BBQ restaurant on Kirby is great food. Check out the Goode Co. Mexican place across the street, too. Nice authentic food. Large menu. Cooked fast. There's also a Goode Co. Seafood place behind this Mexican joint. Never been there but if the first two Goode Co. restaurants are any indication, the seafood place is sure to be good.
