To ensure the safety of our employees and guests, we’ve made operational changes in all of our restaurants. Limited interaction, contactless payment, disposable menus, and additional sanitation practices are just some of the many adjustments you’ll notice as we exercise caution during this time. Rest assured, no changes have been made to the delicious contents of our pie.

In April, we hired Hamilton Health Box to guide our protocol development
and reinforce our safety standards. Since then, their dedicated medical staff has
continued to provide our employees with 24/7 on-call medical support, free
COVID testing as needed, and randomized testing each week.

We want to be part of the solution to halt the spread of this virus—and we hope
you’ll join us in doing so. Please wear your mask and practice social distancing
when inside our establishments. The only way we get through this is together.

The food quality has gone way down. The food was cold and bland. Everyone of us out of 5 all agreed. Will not be going back. Once was a very good restaurant but the last two times have been awful. I understand covid is happening but to be served cold food is inexcusable. Over priced and underwhelmed. Houston has much better options for Mexican food.

Extremely authentic food. Service was very accommodating and kind. Will always recommend for Mexican food. Adhered to appropriate social distancing and cleanliness guidelines to minimize potential COVID-19 exposure. Felt very safe and had a great time!

I do realize things are different now during Covid, but left overall disappointed. I've been here several times pre pandemic, and love their food. However, prepare yourself now for a significantly SMALLER MENU, and on top of that a 5% COVID FEE to your bill. Service was not what it should have been either. Can't say I will be returning anytime soon.

I had not seen my family in a while so we decided to get together for dinner. I have come to this restaurant several times now, and every time I order tostadas without cheese due to being lactose intolerant. Somehow, my no cheese modification has been left out the last two times. I never complained, but I simply always wait to eat while everyone else also waits to eat with me. With the times lately, I understand having a limited menu and had to choose something else this past visit. I chose tacos thinking it’s basically the same thing so that’s fine. I was so disappointed. The flavor was completely bland. Plus, I ordered my tacos without cheese, and per usual, received them with cheese. No manager came by this time like they typically do when it has happened in the past. The server was decent. Nothing to complain about with him even though I understand it could have been his or the kitchen’s fault. I’ve never had the same server twice, but my no cheese modification always gets messed up. I don’t remember the food to be bland. I want to give y’all another chance, but this time I want to say something so it can be brought to your attention, again. Thanks for listening.

As always, our visit to the Cantina was very pleasant! We were not able to reserve a table in Sam's area but our server was excellent. Food was also excellent. It was so nice to be out and about.

Disappointed that items on the menu provided were not available. If menu is reduced, make a new menu. Kids menu almost non-existent. You could make some new menus with the additional 5% you are charging. Won’t be going back for awhile.

Food came out cold. There were bones in the rice. Enchiladas were ok.

The food was not what we have come to expect of Goode Co. Actually not as good as an average Mexican restaurant this time despite the premium price. Hope it was just an off day as I eat there all the time and this time was just not good. My guest had to ask for more cheese as our fajitas came with about as much shredded cheese as to equal the ice cubes in our tea. Very off day.

A nice early evening dinner with friends was perfect. Inside the required social distancing was just right, our waiter fit right in with our group and was delightful, our food arrived just the way we wanted it and my redfish on the half shell was absolutely delicious. The watermelon mezcal margarita is one of my favorites cocktails that I always look forward to sipping on. We will be back...soon!

Great place but honestly the salsa wasn’t that good. The Margarita I ordered was in a bourbon glass and they charged $15 for it. The tacos were pretty good. Service was great considering it’s 50% capacity and our waiter was spread very thin. For the price....I expected more but I’m willing to try it again once things get back to normal. Whatever that means.

A dinner for four turned out to be very relaxing. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with our meal, reasonably priced, and enjoyed wonderful Tex-Mex dishes. The fish tacos had a whole piece of fish, not like some places where they use small chunks to fill the taco. Service was friendly and thorough.
