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!!!

Have been to this restaurant several times over the years, always with good friends, just don't know what to expect when we show up. Maybe its just a local thing. Service is hit or miss,...sometimes the food is as well. "Maybe the food will be hot this time?",..."Hasn't it been forever since we ordered?",... "I know that the other table... More

Everything at Goodwood is house made original recipes. Their smoked meats are tender, smokey and delicious. Thier sides have true home made taste and texture. We love this place.

This place fits the bill for everyone without having a ten page menu like a franchise. Hungry athletes, foodies, grandpa, kiddies, persnickety eaters... Nice local flavors. I give it a five for the fact that they know what they are and what they do well. It's a lot of great food that feels like home, but not the food you... More

We ordered take-out twice during the week we were in Boise, first for just potato salad and then for an entire meal. The potato salad is the best anywhere, and rivals anyones homemade potato salad All of us loved... More

Food was fantastic and I don't think I've ever had such wonderful service! The servers are excellent! We had to wait a little while but it was worth every minute. Get there early. Will definitely eat here again. Check it out you won't be sorry.

Had lunch. Food was very good. Service was good and quick. Only 3 miles from the house, we went after seeing a movie and had a great day.
