Inspired by long days on the Gulf, late nights on the ranch, and the colorful creations of our abuela, our family’s Kitchen & Cantina brings together the rich foods and traditions we grew up with on both sides of the border.

Sunup through sundown, help yourself to menus teeming with authentic Mexican plates and smoky South Texas staples, garden-crisp salads and wood-fired seafood dishes that deftly fuse the bold flavors of Texas, Mexico and Gulf Coast cooking. A few margaritas on the patio and you’ve found your new casa.

We tried the Jalapeño Renos for a starter. If you like chorizo and spicy goodness you will fall in love. We also had several Grapefruit Frescas that were very thirst quenching.

We spoilt the Verde chicken enchiladas and some fresh guacamole with blue crab meat. Both were great.

Do yourself a favor and stop by the Cantina for some of the best food in town.

Been to this restaurant several times before and enjoyed it, however, on this occasion we were disappointed.
The service from the waiter and kitchen was not very good and we had to remind waiter about our appetizer after about 20 mins when he asked if we would like anything? The main meals from kitchen also arrived partially plated and once my husband questioned the server, he went back to the kitchen for the remaining sides - the service was also slow.
The food and drinks tasted good but it was a noisy atmosphere and difficult to chat/hear our friends.
For the cost of this meal on this occasion, we were disappointed.

This was my second time. Food great, waiter good but maybe he was new...as he made several mistakes on our orders and had to make several trips.
Place setting for two (there were three of us)
Asked for no salt on margarita - salt added.
There were other things, but related to the others and I can't remember. Had to ask for things that are normally brought if you are an observant waiter. We are easy going patrons, and only pointing this out for customers who aren't as easy going. :). Love this place. Wish there was one near me part of town. (Pearland)

Several items were poor quality. Plates with one piece of beef fajita meat in tacos and was primarily fat. Restaurant replaced the tacos quickly, but meat was undercooked and had to replace for a third time. Chicken fajitas served cold.

While the restaurant handled our concerns, it was a very disappointing experience, especially as we had out of town guests with us.

The awful music only adds to the overall noise level. It's a Mexican restaurant; play Mexican music!

Food is not same level as when it opened. Needs to be served hot.

I really enjoy Goode Company Kitchen and Cantina. We have been here many times. Something was different when we dined this time. Our food was not very warm, the rocks margarita tasted like tequila and lime juice, and it took several attempts to get our order right. It is usually amazing and delicious, but something must have been off this evening. I’ll definitely be back, but was disappointed this time. I’m glad it wasn’t my first time trying the restaurant.

Everything about this place is amazing. The atmosphere was nice and clam. The decor embodied the cantina feel. Then came the food. It’s was delicious. My husband ordered carnitas and I got the classic cheese enchiladas. Those enchiladas were the closest to my grandmothers that I have found. We will see be having more date nights at this spot.
