Great Place

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!

Much better than typical American "Mexican". Live music on the patio, great happy hour prices till 7. Loved the Taco Tour of 6 varieties of meat on your choice of flour,soft corner hard corn shells with a bunch of sauces to add. Fresh salsa with great chips while you wait. Would definitely recommend.

This was a great Mexican restaurant happened to stop off at on the way to New Mexico. The salsa with the chips was fresh and very tasty. They had every kind of meat for tacos, tostadas, etc. cooked in different ways. Loved the stuffed avocados and quest fundido-signature dishes. Can't go wrong here.

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

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 times I've been.... 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...
