Stopped by for lunch while in the area on business. Recommended to me by a local for good BBQ. Having lived in the south and travelled several states over the years, it's hard to find the genuine deal when it comes to the way it should be cooked. LOW & SLOW!! Great flavor abounds within these smokers. Had the pulled... More

This is the real deal! Dry barbecue - add the sauce of your choice, including a range of hot to mild, sweet, vinegar. Our party had brisket, turkey and of course pulled pork. All just right. Sides have enough flavor to stand up to the meats but not so much that they overwhelm. The portions are definitely not for the... More

This used to be our place to go for a really good barbecue. Lately we noticed a decline in quality. Meats seemed a bit dry, as if it has sat for quite some time; still love the flavor though. I have not tried the other barbecue place around the area, as I'm not giving up on Goody Cole's just yet.... More

This is my second visit. Couldn't resist stopping when I drove past. The brisket is to die for! Friendly staff and warm atmosphere.

Goody Coles on RT125 in Kingston NH is a great place to pick up food and go. they have one of the best smoked meats selections in Rockingham County. Definitely worth a stop in Southern NH

My husband and I live 3 hours away and drive just to eat there once in a while. The people are friendly and the food is amazing. It's casual so don't get dressed up for the occasion. Make sure you go when you are hungry. My favorite is the beef brisket. My husband's is the platter with sausage, pork brisket... More

This may be the best Smokehouse bar-b-q in the state. The food is delicious, no matter what you choose and there are plenty of choices. Sandwiches, combo plates and larger quantities of specific items. Great side dishes too. Everything is fresh and homemade. The brisket is to die for...the ribs are meaty and tender...I stop here every time my company... More

I have been going to Goody Cole's for a few years now; I have never been disappointed! As soon as you walk in the door, you catch a nose full of that subtle smokiness in the air. It's a little hole-in-the-wall place with old license plates and signs on the walls, but that only adds to the appeal. There's a... More

Order the brisket. Do not visit without it. Tip: order a two meat combo if you are unsure of what to get. There is too much food in the three meat combo. I picked brisket, smoked turkey, and pulled pork. If I had to choose, I would have skipped the pork, which while good was not as succulent as the... More

We'd been meaning to get here, having heard great things from many people. Barbecue EVERYTHING here. I got smoked turkey and beef brisket. Huge portions. Cornbread is outstanding. My mother in law who doesn't like barbecue loved it here! I'm told this place is hard to get into in the warmer months and I can see why. Nothing pretentious. Just... More
