Goodwood Barbecue Company Restaurant Review

: Slap in some earplugs and get down to business at this crowded barbecue joint in Draper. Goodwood Barbecue Company is known for its beef brisket, slow-smoked pulled pork and pork ribs, which is another way of recommending that you stay away from the bland burgers and tough beef ribs. Some of the sides, like the runny beans and dried-out coleslaw, may insult Southerners, but the onion rings, steak fries and potato salad hit the spot. Kids will turn glassy-eyed after devouring the double-dipped chicken crispers. The service tends to shine during off-hours and lean toward sporadic by the dinner rush, so go before 7 p.m. to experience the staff at its most accommodating.
