Delicious Mexican food in Houston, Texas. The seat yourself, order at the counter, laid back atmosphere is exactly what you want in a good authentic Mexican restaurant and Good Co. Taqueria delivers on just that. They serve up an awesome salad which is a healthy alternative to other menu items. Do not pass on the queso and if you go for breakfast consider ordering the waffle (not a typical Mexican restaurant order but this waffle is mouth watering good). If you are drinking, go with the Michelada. I will revisit this no fuss restaurant next time I am in Houston.

You can't expect to much from a chain bbq restaurant. They even serve breakfast, just like bill miller bbq. Generic

Great fajitas, burgers and atmosphere

The third concept in the Goode family line of restaurants, the Taqueria has a wide variety on the menu. The chicken fajitas are tender and well marinated, the burgers (several different sizes) are nicely seasoned. Multiple options enchilada types although the best dish is the grilled, marinated pork chop. Served with refried beans, rice and tortillas, it's a must try dish. French fries are crispy and the onion rings are thick cut and battered. Atmosphere is casual and kid friendly, parking can be tough as the lot is small. Weekend brunch menu has some great tex-mex dishes and killer waffles but is only served 7:30am - 12:30pm Sat/Sun.

The Best Seafood Restaurant in town

I was introduce to the restaurant years ago and love the atomspere and the decor ( the classic boat). The seafood gumbo is excellent and the fried fish. Also, the garlic bread is superb.

Alright

I got a 1/3 lb burger with cheddar cheese and dressed it with a little mayo, a little mustard, shredded lettuce, and diced onions. The meat was cooked well done, it was completely dry and over-seasoned. The fries though were nicely seasoned and greasy, they were very good. The onion rings were a bit like an unsweeted donut and the batter couldn't stick to the ring.

Good for breakfast, decent for lunch or dinner

I was most impressed with breakfast. Large portions, well seasoned, fairly quick delivery of orders. I had the American breakfast- 2 eggs/hashbrowns/bacon/ biscuit. I didn't eat, but looked at with envy, the steak and eggs combo. That looked amazing. The pecan walfes also caught my attention. Thing it over, this Goode company restaurant is probably undervalued. It's not as busy as some of its sister chains, yet the food is always good. It's not really a date place/but a good place to catch up with old friends.

Inner city BBQ

Consistently tasty BBQ without having to drive out of the city. It would be a better atmosphere not sitting right on Kirby, but it's extremely convenient and the taste reminds me of rural Texas.

Best Burger In Texas

There's a lot of restaurants that claim to have the best burger in Texas, but this one actually does. Simple yet amazing. Their Mexican food is also pretty good.

Awesome Fajita & Eggs

I only go there for brunch during the weekends and usually order the fajita & eggs with a side of chips and salsa. It is different than most Mexican or Tex-Mex places, but a good different. It does get crowded there at brunch and you'll have to wait in line but the service is fast and the place is big enough to seat the large crowd.

Best Breakfast in Houston

This is by-far...the best breakfast in Houston. You cant go wrong with the wonderful waffles or my favorite, the huevos con napalitos. Also, be sure to try the cinnamon-chocolate shakes, they are out of this world. Their burgers are also amazing. 2 words-- Mesquite-cooked

Good(e) Quality food!

Excellent beef fajitas, mesquite burgers, and enchiladas.
The breakfast ribeye steak is great....order it a la carte (it's cheaper).
Large assortment of beer and other beverages.

However, they are stingy with the tortillas and you shouldn't have to pay for chips & salsa.
Can be expensive for families.

BEST mesquite burgers

I have only eaten the mesquite burgers and they are great. We live in louisiana and eat there everytime we get to houston. about 15 times a year and we will eat there both days of the weekend we are in Houston. I have sent several of my friends from La to eat there and now it is there favorite place in Houston also. The only complaint I have is the price for a family of 4 is very high for burgers.

A must for breakfast

Although yes it is very crowded usually(what good place to eat isn't?), I say you have to try Goode Co. The waffles are remarkable. A hint of cinnamon and pecans take these things to a new level. There are several different type of egg & meat plates.

Slow, and food's not worth it

Every time I have come here (3 times) I have had to wait in a long line to order, and the food has been achingly slow in being ready. And, really, it's only average. Plus it's pricey.

Ha-che-mama

I think what you pick for breakfast here is important. The Hunter's special with jalepeno jenison sausage, Texas Toast and 'spepcial' country fried potatoes is the best breakfast I've eaten in Houston. On the other hand, my wife was not impressed with the Migas.

A Goode Co. breakfast is GOOD

A Goode Co. breakfast is the best in Houston. I've been going there for over ten years. Excellent Mexican style breakfasts.

Not so Goode

Being familiar with authentic mexican and good tex-mex I was disappointed with this eatery. While, I would recommend and have frequented Goode Co. Bar-B-Q, I have never returned for the not so Goode Mexican food

The ultimate worst breakfast

The breakfast was awful. A large group went on Sunday Morning. We waited forever. Tables were full. Food was marginal at best. However, lunch and dinner are good.
