Where Are We Eating?

It's almost rodeo season, and you know what that means: the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest is headed to town. In honor of this annual tradition, here's a plate of some of Houston's most famous barbecue. You can argue about whether or not that's a worthy honor in the comments section, but only after you get the name of the place right.

Goode Co. is great for two things:  Jalapeno bread and Poultry.  If you recommend this place, be sure to make them try these two to avoid raised eyebrows.

Yes I finally know this one.  The one and only goode co BBQ!

ouch, how much is that saying for a BBQ joint in Houston to receive it's highest praise for it's pre-packaged bread?

That building on the parking lot between Goode's Seafood & Goode's Tacos is the bakery that serves the Goode Empire. I doubt the bread is pre-packaged....

Goode's BBQ does not serve the very best barbecue in the state.  Most of the places that do are out in the boonies & have weird hours. They have one or two famous barbecue meats, wonderbread & very simple side dishes.  Thirsty? Ice tea, soda pop & maybe some Bud Lite.  Definitely worth it when you have the time.  

Goode's has a wide range of very good barbecue dishes, first rate sides, excellent bread &  killer pecan pie.  I think the locations beyond the Kirby original have full bars.  If thirsting for booze on Kirby, try the 'ritas at Goode's taco/burger/breakfast place.  Or the full bar at Goode's seafood.  (Both of which have really good food, too.) 

Glad to have the Goode restaurants in town.  Alas, there none in the Woodlands....

Please, explain what you mean by pre-packaged.  Because I think you failed in your attempt to disparage Goode Co.

I think that there's bread recipe; at least, I've never seen it at another, non-Goode restaurant. That sausage isn't bad, but I've never liked their ribs. When I go to Goode Co, I usually get either turkey or duck. Also not pictured is their pecan pie, which is one of my favorite desserts in Houston. 

For brisket and ribs, there's a long list of places in Houston I'd rather go. If you're a Goode Co fan and wondering why people don't like it, start with Gatlin's, Virgie's, Pierson's (if it ever reopens), Lennox, Pizzitola (especially for ribs, hopefully for brisket soon) and Rudy's. You'll taste the difference. Of course, it's a path to madness. Pretty soon you're getting up at 7am on a Saturday to make it to Snow's before they run out and plotting days off so you can get to Franklin's during the week when the line isn't too bad. 

On second thought, maybe just stick to Goode Co, Demeris and Pappas. Ignorance is bliss, right?

Goode Co! Love the bread....

Yeah, that bread is the best thing on the plate.
