Perfect Atmosphere...Limited Food Options

The restaurant is literally a diamond in the rough (neighborhood.) Gorgeous pool out back with tons of shade and space. Want a menu with more than 3 options? Don't plan on going here. Drinks are good and strong.

This is the best deal in all of Forth Worth. The combination of food, value, and atmosphere is incredible. Some people say it's overrated, but I think that's due to people building it up too much. Try to go on a beautiful night and eat outside. The first time we went there, we had no idea there was an outside... More

The only drawback I found was the menu. there was none. two entrée meals consisting of an enchilada meal and the fajitas. We had two enchilada meals that were out of this world. If a person were to leave there hungry, it would be their own fault.

We were greeted by attentive staff who brought us to a table in the shade as requested. Nachos and salsa were brought to the table and were good. *Note: foods/ sauces come with a hot and spicy warning though we never found the food either hot nor spicy! Anyhow this restaurant seems very popular with visitors and locals alike -... More

The menu is limited, but this just means that what they make, they make it very well! The enchiladas are awesome.

You have to go to Joe T's! Outdoor seating at its finest. Lush décor with fountains and water pools. Food is abundant (with only two entrée choices, Enchilada Dinner or Fajitas) and every bite delicious. Be prepared to arrive early and wait 1+ hours for weekend dinner. We were there on Wednesday at 6pm and seated immediately. Our staff (Daniela)... More

I enjoyed the restaurant and would go back. It's not the best Tex Mex food I've ever had, but it was good. I had enchiladas and shared. The one I gave away was apparently very good. The one I kept had a burnt flavor to it. Everyone else in the party enjoyed it but agreed that there is better in... More

This place has been part of the Ft. Worth scene for many years and is well known in the Historic Stockyards area. As well knowen as the name of Joe T's is around town, it is also significantly over rated. If you are in town and are wanting to experience an authentic mexican/texmex meal, this is NOT the place to... More

If you want real, original Tex-Mex, Joe T's is the place!! It's the best. You may have to stand in line.
