Hot lunch spot!

Go early, the line gets going by 1145. Very tasty Mexican food with some Santa Fe influences. I do recommend the stuffed avocado, to lighten the plate- add side salad and cut the rice and or beans.

This is a local Mexican Food Restaurant and one of the best I know and I have been to nearly every Mexican Food Restaurant in this area. The fish tacos are especially good. They give you many choices of meat and sauces and I have yet to find anything that was not top shelf.

We were holed up in Amarillo during Storm Goliath. Fortunately, our hotel was in the vicinity of Joe Taco. Loved this place! All day happy hour on Sat and Sun, handmade margaritas and guacamole, yummy salsa, friendly servers, funky/fun ambiance, What else can I say?! We'll prob head back tomorrow.

It had been nine years since being back in Amarillo and I was hungry for good Mexican Food. My sister-in-law said this was a great place to eat and boy was she right. The atmosphere was great and relaxing, the waiter was very nice, and the prices were great. Our food came in a timely manner and the food was... More

A second visit was better with truck tacos that were very good. Being able to mix and match different fillings in each added some variety to my plate. Much more flavor than the blah enchiladas on my first visit. Service was good this time as well. Back on my T/M circuit.

The conference that I was attending bought dinner for everyone at Joe's. Joe's is a very good local Tex/Mex restaurant. It is clean, the wait staff is friendly and knowledgable and the service was quick. I had the fish taco (the first time I had ever had one) and LOVED it! It was supposed to be served with mango salsa.... 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.
