Stopped by Goodwood BBQ by the Boise Spectrum 20 minutes before closing and the staff were warm and attentive in their service. We've have lunch and dinner at Goodwood many, many times over the years, Kevin and staff have provided an inviting environment and consistently good food - and great service!

Just to start the review off, our server Kaitlyn was one of the friendliest servers that we've had in a while, and was very good at her job. The food there was pretty good. I got the Delmonico steak with a potato and steamed vegetables, and my wife got the fried chicken strips with macaroni and cheese. In the interest... More

This was a very disappointing BBQ (?) restaurant that everyone seemed to think was good? When I went with friends, the BBQ was way too "sweet" not enough "heat" and left a strange taste in my mouth. I'm from the Midwest and this isn't the type of BBQ I was used too. I really don't consider Goodwood to be a... More

Excellent food, had the two meat plate, brisket & turkey. Very flavorful, their sauce is sweet & smokey, the potato salad was very good. Big portions, very nice clean atmosphere in the restaurant. Good location, near hotels, right off the freeway. A great place to eat in Boise

Having eaten really great BBQ in the south, we were truly thrilled to find such great smoked BBQ in Boise. What a surprise. I had the pulled pork sandwich, someone else had burnt ends, and another the ribs. All our plates were delicious. The slaw, made with a touch of peanut butter, was so creamy, and good. So glad we...

This restaurant was started by a man who grew up in Texas close to where I grew up. He knows good barbeque and we have ALWAYS had great food and service there. It is one of our favorite places to eat. It is a really nice restaurant, clean and comfortable.

Ordered ribs, which were done ok, but the sauce was way too sweet and a mediocre thickness/texture. Side dishes were ok, but not special. Service was average. This restaurant feels like a chain with production line food. Only been there twice but that's enough to convince me not to return. For the money, you can do better.

Not sure that it is a common occurrence, but we waited for our waitress for more than 20 min. The manager was very apologetic and brought us two appetizer plates which we didn't ask for. A few things I liked: wings and potato skins, ribs, mac and cheese, chicken strips, frys, flavored lemonade, and cobbler and sunday desserts. Was not... More

So... we just moved from Texas; and glad we found this place! Started with some cornbread, then moved to the Texas Brisket, Turkey, and the Sausage... loaded smashed potatoes and Mac n cheese... loved it all. Kenzie was an awesome and helpful waitress (will ask for her again) cuz we will definitely be back!!!
