This was my first time at Goodwood BBQ Co. We started with a half order of onion rings as per other reviewers that had recommended them. They were great. The breading was very light and the onions themselves still tasted like onions.

We've been here a couple of times. The first experience was better than the second.

On the first visit, I had the brisket sandwich which was wonderful. The brisket practically melted in my mouth. My husband had a steak sandwich which was good but nothing special. Service was good.

On the second visit, I again ordered the brisket, but it wasn't quite as good as it was the first time. Still, it was tasty. Service on the second visit was quite slow - we must have waited a good 15-20 minutes after we were seated before anyone came to take our order. It probably took another 15 or 20 minutes to get our food. We ordered BBQ - it is already cooked - it shouldn't take that long to slice it and put it on a plate.

My main complaint about Goodwood is the noise level. It's all you can do to have a conversation with the person sitting across the table from you. Maybe they do this on purpose to get people to leave faster, but it makes the dining experience much less pleasant.

I don't want to downgrade to 3 stars, but I'm not sure it really rates a 4 either. If you like BBQ, it's worth a visit, but be prepared to wait and to deal with the noise. They do offer take-out and I think we might do that next time.

Pros: Tasty food

Cons: Noisy and crowded, mediocre service

The food was ok. Our waitress was really good. The music was so loud it gave us headaches and we had to yell to have a conversation. We had a party of 11 and sat at the big table. Even my teenagers, one on the thin side and one average, couldn't move once they were seated. The table was too close to the benches. Most people are above average size. Apparently Goodwood didnt do their research when designing their seating. What was supposed to be a fun family get together turned out the opposite.

Pros: service

Cons: noisy, loud music, tables to close to benches

The BBQ at Good Wood is phenomenal. (Although if there was a Famous Dave's in Draper I would choose that first.)
That is why I continue returning. We order lunch in for my office everyday and the owners really enjoy their meat. I was absolutely stunned when I went in today, March 13, 08. I placed a togo order of about 20 meals and spent $250. When I asked for takeout silverware (I mean honestly, what else would I be eating my togo brisket with????) He, being the smiling employee told me that they CHARGE for take out silverware. ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? I JUST SPENT $250 AND I CANT EVEN HAVE A FORK. If I didnt have to order there for my bosses, I dont know that I would go back.
On another instance when I went in as a single diner for lunch I was completely ignored by my serve staff (which I went in at the end of the lunch hour-closer to 2) and my drink wasnt ever even refilled. Again, great food, poor service.

Pros: great food, good potatoe salad, nice lemonades

Cons: doesnt take a corporate check, doesnt take Discover, CHARGES FOR TAKEOUT SILVERWARE
