Only three months after debuting in The Woodlands, Goode Company Kitchen & Cantina opened a second location today in the space formerly occupied by Mason Jar Restaurant in the Memorial neighborhood.

The new eatery at 9005 Katy Freeway got a complete revamp and now bears “Bienvenidos Y’all” on the facade - an ethos that characterizes the melded Tex-Mex vibe and food at the restaurant. The 6,500-square-foot space was remodeled by Studio Red Architects and features an open kitchen with wood-fired grills that patrons can view from the dining room. The interior redesign was completed by Gin Design Group and features 100-year-old reclaimed wood tables, vintage serapes, and handmade Mexican pendant lights.

The eatery is from the eponymous family-run Goode Company which operates barbecue, seafood, and taqueria restaurants along with a music venue. Goode Company president Levi Goode is a fifth-generation Texan whose family traces its history to the Texas-Mexico border. According to a press release, he brought decor to the restaurant from his family’s own collection along with recipes passed down from his Mexican immigrant grandmother, Emma Longoria Goode.

The menu feature family platters serving four to six people and South Texas ranch-inspired dishes like the farm-raised Texas quail; redfish on the half shell; Campechana Extra - a shrimp cocktail; enchiladas; crispy tacos; and more including the family’s sought-after Brazos Bottom Pecan Pie. The bar menu features agave-based cocktails like the Damn Goode Margarita, alongside palomas, sangrias, micheladas, and flights of tequila and mezcal.

Goode Company Kitchen & Cantina’s new location is at 9005 Katy Freeway and operates Sunday through Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and until 11:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
