Tex-Mex

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

Nothing matches the flavor of food grilled over mesquite. Try wood-fired Texas quail swaddled in homemade tortillas, jalapeno rellanos 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 fresco - a unique spin on Houston barbeque.

Our days begin roasting chilies 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.

A few margaritas on our patio and you've found your new casa sweet casa.

    GCK&C is an excellent place for a lunchtime business meal. The atmosphere is classic Texas (for the out of town visitors) and the menu and selections are a nice cross section of SE Texas and Gulf Coast delights. Any item will be a good choice and I never hesitate to choose it knowing it will be enjoyed and remembered. The noise level is normal and easy to carry on a conversation and the atmosphere is lively. Rounding out the experience is an excellent wait staff. Will definitely keep coming back.

    Loved the concept, decor, and most of the food. Carnitas and charro beans need more seasoning. The chorizo in the potatoes was non existent. Waiter was good, campechana was good. Carnitas were cooked excellent, just needed more seasoning. Chicken enchilada was wonderful.

    Everything was delicious and the service was great. The surprising highlight was the host who sat us (curly hair). He was so genuinely friendly and hospitable and went out of his way to make us feel welcomed. Based on that interaction alone I was happy we had chosen to celebrate a special get together here. When he stopped us on our way out to again wish the birthday girl a happy birthday I was extremely impressed with his attitude. Fantastic hire on your part, and please give him a raise!

    Not your everyday Tex-Mex- love the smoky flavors of the meats & seafood, and best of all the over-the-top guac. Try the mezcal watermelon margarita for a summertime treat to complement your meal.

    The food is always good it’s just a bit overpriced and the portions are small. My biggest negative about this place is the seating. The tables for two are ridiculous. They are too small for the plates the food is served on. There is not enough room for the drinks and the chips and salsa. This needs to be changed.

    We often eat at the Cantina. This time the experience was less enjoyable. Our table was wobbly. After asking twice, someone put a wedge under one leg. That did not stop the wobble. I eventually fixed it myself. The quality of the ground beef has decreased. It was much more course. There were SEVERAL bones in this mixture. Also, less tasty than normal. My order was delivered wrong. The fresh jalapenos were nice and hot!

    Waiter kept hitting us up for drinks. Food is alright but I have other more preferred places to go for TexMex than here. We had heard several good comments from friends and wanted to try it so we did. For the distance from our home and what we had, we won't be back soon. Its OK to us

    We continually had to ask the waitress for service. Not the usually service we experience there and unfortunately the continued asking for items, for your order to be taken and getting up to ask for additional drinks ruined the evening.
