Dinner out with the wife

Nice quaint place to take a spouse out for a night away from the kids. Chips and green sauce are hard to stop eating once you start. My wife loves the fish tacos good eats and decent proportions. I enjoy the brisket tacos along with a Dos Equis. Good atmosphere for visiting and winding down... read more

I'm on travel and am usually leery of Mexican restaurants due to a wimpy stomach. This place was OUT OF THIS WORLD! It's not spicy, and I'd never seen/heard of tomatillo sauce, but now I'm obsessed. The margaritas are great, the service is quick and friendly, and the food is ridiculously good. The price was reasonable as well. I will... More

Don't waste your time or money on this place. I guess it is a TACO place and not an enchilada place. We have eaten here before and it was good - not great- but today it really went down hill. My order was to have hatch green chili sauce on it. We waited longer than normal due to a large... More

Would do well to add a good New Mexico red sauce to menu...you can only eat so much Tex-Mex. The food is all the same and they could make a difference with going West for some menu updates.

We live in Amarillo and we enjoy eating at Joe Taco on occasion. But here lately the place is filthy. Right inside the door is a work station and there is trash all around it, broken chips on the floor and other debris. There is usually bus staff and hostesses standing near by that never bend over and pick anything... More

My family and I found this place on Trip Advisor while on vacation. It was awesome! We all agreed this was the best in Texas that we know of. The prices were very affordable and the service and food outstanding! Thank You Kason for the perfect service and Tax Mex

I know, the spelling is off but the concept is solid. These guys make great tacos with a vast list of options. I went for the truck tacos with chicken fajita meat. I have to take it on the milder side. But if you need it hot and spicy, Joe's has that, too. Most of my friends had the stuffed... More

Went with a group of six. Good variety on the menu. Had a sampler plate with 6 or 8 different tacos. All of them were delicious! Beer is very cold too!

Great Mexican food. The tortilla soup is great and their food is one of the best in the area. They offer live music, great happy hour specials. The service has been great, not had a bad visit yet. Food taste fresh and at the right price. I highly recommend it.

On our way from NC to CA and only had time for one meal in Texas. And wow did we make a great choice! The food was excellent, the atmosphere unique, and our waiter was kind, knowledgable, and efficient. Thanks, TripAdvisor, for helping us discover Joe Taco!
