Inspired by our family’s Mexican roots, Goode Company’s new Kitchen & Cantina flaunts the very best from both sides of the border. The vibrant locale brings The Woodlands our famous mesquite-grilled fajitas, damn Goode margaritas, and a twinkling patio shared with our newest BBQ location next door.

We love Goode Co Cantina however this visit left a very bad taste in our mouth, no pun intended. The food and service were great except for an issue we had with our bill. My husband went to the manager to discuss it with him and was told “I hope we never have to have this conversation again!” In a VERY condescending/scolding manner.

Who speaks like that to a patron?? Extremely rude and unprofessional. My husband didn’t take kindly to his behavior and the manager backed off and took care of the item in question. He wouldn’t even return the bill to my husband, he sent our waitress (who was great!) out to do it.

The food as always was excellent. This is the first time I have a complaint about our waiter. He was somewhat pompous - arrogant and condescending. He seemed somewhat disinterested in our welfare. I was forced to eat off of my date’s plate as he was forgetful and after we were finished eating the extra place appeared.

We had guests with us hoping to impress them with food and service.

This was supposed to have been a nice starter meal for a long evening event.

This was our 2nd visit. The service was great but it was so cold inside the restaurant that it’s hard to enjoy your food. For the price of the food it should had been outstanding.

We had a very nice lunch/early dinner. The waiter James H. Was absolutely delightful. The food was fantastic and delicious. Lots of tasty sides on the dish of quacomole. And the Mexican martini was surprisingly different-----I LOVED IT!!! So much I told my friends and I am certainly going back, not only for another Mexican martini but for the food. Go enjoy---you'l love it, too.

I always enjoy the food — excellent and the service is fast and so helpful. I had the cheese enchiladas and although it may sound boring — for me, it is a standard to compare. These were delicious! I highly recommend !

The food is consistently good, but we have come to realize the service has become poor over our last 4-5 visits. The staff is friendly, but service is slow. For example, drinks from the bar are coming well after the fountain drinks and this time a good five minutes after appetizers arrived. After our drinks arrived we ordered our entrees and decided to order two more drinks to have with our meals and they arrived 5 min after our entrees arrived. A good 15 min after ordered. We had to ask for more chips and water which typically at a Mexican restaurant are refilled way more frequently then needed. Half way through we realized why we had not been back in a while and it was due to the service. We hope management figures out what has become a recurring issue as we do enjoy the restaurant.

We had a reservation, which made dining with friends so much easier! Also, the team at Goode Co accommodated us with a better table than was originally assigned to us and that was greatly appreciated. Our server was great and the team worked well together.
