Beautiful space, good vibe. However, service slow and the area of the restaurant we sat was freezing cold due to a blasting AC overhead. I had actually brought a sweater but was still miserable. Service was friendly but intermittent. After ordering drinks and receiving those we were not able to order our mains until another 10 min passed. When we needed extra tortillas for a shareable dish It took forever to come out.

Good option for the mid-Katy Frwy area. I enjoyed my salad and would go here again. My main complaint, as with all Goode Co. restaurants, is they are very proud of their food. I don't feel the serving size or quality ever rises to the price point they charge.

Food was ok but service very poor, we had to ask for everything - drink after waiter forgot to bring it then drink refills, plate for child that waiter forgot to bring, etc. I’ve had better service at Chueys for half the price. Won’t be going back.

The food and atmosphere is excellent. However, there are way to many kids in there for us and especially the last 2 times we have been in there. This last time there was an entire table of them running all over the place unsupervised. The parents were having a nice meal by themselves at a separate table. We felt like we are in Chunky Cheese.

I was really excited to try this concept of Goode Co. but unsure the dishes we chose were up to par with other Cantina-like restaurants. The restaurant and the staff were just wonderful - great energy, lots of smiles, and love what they've done with the place. Chips and steaming salsa were wonderful and so was the guac. However, the nachos weren't impressive at all. My jumbo lump crab nachos were topped more with cheese and grilled onions and I could barely see the crab meat. My friends shrimp/bacon nachos were equally as unimpressive with tiny bits of bacon and what looked like freeze-dried shrimp. Hoping these will improve and would be open to trying something else. Just not impressed with these 2 dishes! :(

Cant go wrong with some Bob Armstrong queso. Pretty sure its the best in town. Quail are phenomenal. Hard to get great refried beans and rice anywhere - except here.
Salsa best around too-

This was our 5th dinner @ this location. Started rocky - they no longer had an fish (and we came just for grilled fish!). The server was outstanding - he suggested portobello mushroom fajitas because we are healthy eaters and didn't prefer beef or chicken. After waiting a very long time, he arrived with our dinner and apologized for the long delay. It seems the kitchen was out of portabellos as well, and our server had to go to the store to buy more!!! The manager came by and apologized on our server's behalf. Andy explained that the mushroom option was new and they hadn't adjusted their order levels and that's why they ran out. My main comment - every time I dine there - is to add GRILLED VEGGIES of some kind as a side option. Yes, most people want beans and rice with their entrees. But let's face it-- in this day & age, people need healthy options too. Goode Company has not stepped up and it won't be long before this location is no longer an option for us. One of our diners had the grilled romaine salad with shrimp for her entree. The salad included 3 shrimp. That's all. For $19 I believe.
