A place generations in the making

Since crossing the big pond too long ago to count, the Goode family has dedicated itself to sharing the culinary convergence of our flavorful past: the salt of the Gulf, the soul of the South, the spice of Mexico and the sweet smoke of Texas. We discovered along the way that Houston, Texas food is but a portion of what we love to highlight about our homeland.

The Armadillo Palace is a celebration of true Houston, Texas food, music and culture. A destination for friends and family to break bread and make merry. Our BBQ, Mexican and Cajun kitchen is an invitation to sit down and savor everything that makes our buttons-pop-proud to be a Texan.

From live Texas tunes to live-fire barbecue pits, full-service bars to a full lineup of shows and events, the Armadillo Palace combines the communal atmosphere of a traditional Texas ranch house with an outdoor dining, dance and entertainment space of a BBQ, Mexican and Cajun kitchen, unmatched in Houston. Or anywhere, we dare say.

Whether you’re visiting from across town or from across the Atlantic—grab a drink. Grab a partner. And come stay awhile.

This is how we serve Texas.
