Goodwood Barbecue Company

Readers' Picks

OK, we know it's easy to mistake this well-honed eatery for a chain, especially since Goodwood boasts three locations in Utah, but, surprise, it's a Boise company with its corporate headquarters right here in the Treasure Valley. So, now you don't have to have any guilt about relaxing in Goodwood's contemporary Western interior and gorging yourself on baby back ribs doused in thick barbecue sauce, barbecued brisket, slow-smoked pulled pork, smoked prime rib, chicken-fried chicken or thick-cut onion rings. Feel no shame as you use the handy roll of paper towels strategically placed on each table to mop up your face, or even as a bib. Ignore that little voice in the back of your head, screaming things like "calories" and "fat grams." In fact, tell them to shut the hell up and drown them out with dessert.
