Our waitress was great. Attentive without hovering over us. The Empanadas were incredible and the pork chops were way good. Good margaritas too. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food, the porkchop with tomato bacon jam is delicious! The pecan pie and chocolate ice box pie are very good too. The house salad is big enough to split.

Food was amazing, server was amazing. The folks that were taking away dirty dishes were a bit overzealous, maybe because it was a slow night and they were bored? The moment I’d pause to take a sip of water someone was asking me if I was done and taking my plates- without asking if I wanted to pack it up-and as soon as we finished our main course, 4 people descended upon our table, coming at us from all directions taking things away. It was a little loud inside and hard to hear each other but that was expected. Overall a good experience and would go back.

About 10 seconds after I made the reactions the restaurant called to ask if we wanted to sit inside or outside and if anyone had any allergies. Love the attentiveness!

The food was good, but the selection was limited. The grill had been turned off already because of the late hour on New Years Eve. We did appreciate the extra effort by the chef and management to accommodate us. The gumbo and the shrimp on the fried seafood platter were both excellent, and the pecan pie was also very good.

Yes, but only for a concert. Need way more outside full service bars. Spent the 1/2 the concert in line. Concert was very good! And after eating in the restaurant we still have to go stand in line for the concert? Need to fix that for sure. Food was average to OK.

AL a care for everything was a little much, price wise. The food was all very tasty. We share the fajita steak and it was enough for two; with two sides. All this was enough for two people. So, all together it was affordable, but only if we split it. Margaritas were excellent.

We had a nice dinner with a big group from out of town. The food was good and service was good. I gave it 4 stars because it was good but not extraordinary.

The service and food was excellent. I would highly recommend dinning here. The concert on the patio was even better. Kevin Fowler put on an excellent show as usual. Me and my wife will for sure be going back in the near future. Thanks for the great time Armadillo Palace.

It's a fun Texas style place definitely for meat eaters. Portions were good. Concert was ok, but not what we were expecting. It was more of a songwriter's round than a well thought out program on dysfunctional family Christmases. Too many f bombs dropped by Ward Davis...

The food was pretty good. Not amazing, but very edible. The service lacked punctuality and friendliness but was otherwise alright. We were here for a concert, so it was convenient. The Hall for the concert was a good venue for listening to some Red Dirt / Texas country music.

Waiter and food were good. However, this is the third time I've made a reservation for a certain area of the restaurant and been told when I got there it wasn't available. This time, I specifically asked for outdoors and confirmed my reservation the morning of. When I arrived, the outdoor area was reserved for an event. I asked why that hadn't been communicated to me and the hostess told me I asked for indoors. I had the request ready on my phone to prove I asked for outdoor seating. I wish these mistakes wouldn't happen multiple times and, if they have to occur, I wasn't accused of lying by staff.

We were looking for a local dining experience and were intrigued by the giant armadillo sculpture out front. Even at half capacity, with no live music, the dining room was very loud. It was difficult to have a conversation and even to communicate with the servers. The food was good. The venison chili was very tasty, but the made to order guacamole was pretty average. We didn't notice anything particularly special about the "damn good" margaritas, either. The seafood platter was done well, with just the right amount of corneal dusting and cooked to a lightly crispy outside and perfectly cooked inside. All in all, it was a good meal, but a little pricey. If we were to return, I would skip the drinks and guacamole and stick to splitting an entree and one or two sides.

No live entertainment when we went, but the 8 of us (all northerners) had a great time. Tried the 1/2 pig's head, interestingly tasty. Great service. No problem with separate checks.
Will return.

The food was good as well as timing but we had to continually ask for more water and tea........ music in restaurant was too loud to speak comfortably.......we had one person with hearing aids and she had to remove them.......it’s possible we were sitting under a speaker which we would ask to avoid next time....

We really enjoyed Goode’s Armadillo Palace. Ryan, our server, was great with his recommendations. The food was delicious. We told Ryan we were from out of town and were spirts fans and he gave us directions how to get to NGR stadium & the Astrodome. We weren’t able to get in- there was a soccer match going on- but the hubby & boys were really happy to see it. I loved taking a picture of the giant armadillo!

This place is Amazing!!! We brought out of state guests here to show them a piece of TX! WE drove over an hour and it was worth it. We will be back. The bartenders offered some menu suggestions, and they were spot on. The pork chop is amazing!!!
