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.
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.
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.
This Goode idea serves up two top Texas food groups under one roadside roof. – In Short
Place your order at the busy counter and nestle indoors or snag a table on the funky, neon-lit patio. This home away from home for hunters, families and quick solo diners also features assorted enchiladas and fine chicken tacos encased in thick, homemade tortillas along with buckets full of zingy pico de gallo and smooth salsa on the fixings bar. Hearty, sizzling grilled platters of chicken, beef fajitas, pork chops, quail and catfish come with mounds of vegetable-packed Mexican rice, astounding guacamole and creamy refried beans.
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.
