Love Joe Taco!

We've never had a bad experience at Joe Taco! The food is always plentiful and tastes great. We've always had great service and the building is always clean. The only thing I could say bad about it is that the wait for lunch is a little much sometimes and the service is slower at lunch the few... read more

Hostess seating tables AND doing take out orders?!? This is inefficient, keeping too many people waiting. No bartender AT the bar?!?! No visible manager?! Whats going on panhandle restraunt group? Disappointing. Sad to say that he main reason why this place is successful is because there is no nearby competition. Definatly not the best mexican food in town but one... More

Tired after a long car journey I called in at the bar for a beer and the welcome I received was amazing! Very friendly, chatted about soccer and travel then spent several hours drinking beer and talking about my veterans charity! Then breakfast the next day - absolutely delicious! 😊 tacos, decried beans, eggs - superb and great value! Love... More

This was our second visit here and our last. We should have left when the hostess barely gave us an acknowledgement as we entered. We waited a long time standing by the door, cool air hitting us every time someone entered and left. We were disturbed to see the chips being scooped into serving bowls right there in the main...

Friday evening, April 17th, I went to Joe Taco's for a simple to-go order. I took a seat at the bar next to a nice young man that told me he had been waiting 15 minutes for something to drink. I asked one of the two ladies working behind the bar for a beer and asked that they serve the... More

Everything was great, portions were large prices were reasonable there was two of us our bill was under 25. Lots of choices. If I was to say anything that needed attention it was the floor needed to be cleaned but after lunch rush you would expect the floor in need of a broom.You won't be disappointed it's a little hard...

wow. We have eaten here before and found it good but this stop was our last. Food was salty to the point of being inedible. This was true of both our meals. Server disappeared after bringing our food and when she returned to clear the table of our half eaten meals, we informed her of how bad the food was.... More

Food is always good, salsa is great. Hostess can't be bothered to care. Snarl on her face and dismissive. Rather talk with friends

We have been eating here for years and it is always good. Plow into the green sauce with a hot chip to start off the experience. Speciality dishes with awesome meat choices add that extra touch of yumminess. Headed there now! Don't debate, just come on and enjoy.
