Bienvenidos, Y’all

Inspired by long days on the Gulf, late nights on the ranch, and the colorful creations of our abuela, our family’s Houston Mexican restaurant and Cantina showcases the rich authentic foods and traditions we grew up with on both sides of the border.

Spice & Smoke,
Past & Present

Nothing matches the flavor of food grilled over mesquite. Try wood-fired Texas quail swaddled in homemade tortillas, jalapeño rellenos stuffed with house-made chorizo, and sizzling, family-style parrilladas—huge mixed platters of wild game and fresh vegetables, topped with pico de gallo and queso fresca.
Did You Know?

The Fajita Tradition

The fajita tradition was born back in the 1930s in the ranch lands of South and West Texas. During cattle roundups, the less expensive cuts from beef—like skirt steak—were given as payment to the Mexican vaqueros (cowboys), who cooked the meat directly on a campfire. With a slow, steady sizzle, their regional resourcefulness beget one of this city’s most beloved staples.

Goode Co. was the first in Houston to grill fajitas over mesquite.

Damn Goode
& Done Right

Our days begin roasting chiles and tomatoes, rolling fresh tortillas in our bakery, and wringing every last drop of Ruby Red grapefruit for cocktails. We hand-grind our own sausage and hand-trim every ounce of meat in our butchery, then anoint it with the savory seasonings and marinades we’ve honed over generations.
