The waitress impressed us by taking the drink orders from 17 people at our table and not writing anything down, then returning to serve them without a mistake.

I can't rate the food here, as we only had drinks and chips, but I can see why this place is a Fort Worth institution. We sat on the patio on a beautiful, warm (90+) summer afternoon and enjoyed margaritas and chips and salsa, all of which were delicious. The patio/gardens are amazing -- lots of little nooks and crannies... More

Our food was pretty good, the service was a little slow and non attentive. NOTE: they take cash only, atm located inside.

Used to love it. Brought a big group Saturday afternoon. Sat in a section full of flys. Couldn't get them away from the food. No offer to move to another section - waitress was laughing about the flys instead. No menu - just a choice of enchiladas or fajitas. Food was so-so. Flys all over everything. Waitress disappeared. Do not... More

You either love this place or not, the reviews are accurate! No cards, cash only. Expect lines. Basic margaritas are good, not great. But with a little local knowledge, you can have a little more fun! Get a place in line and then send someone to the bar and get a pitcher of margarita especials. This has a little more... More

I absolutely loved the views Joe T Garcia's has to offer. It is such a beautiful place to walk around while waiting for your meal or right after. The only drawback to the restaurant were the portions. It may have been because we ordered it to come family style but our enchiladas were a little on the small side. Oh... More

I eat here every time I come to Fort Worth. The food and service is always great! The family style enchilada dinner is plenty for two people. The fajitas are also one of my favorites.

We love this place, but like any critique, you first have to define the experience. This is not high cuisine, it is not authentic Mexican food; it is basic Tex Mex served with really good margaritas and lots of fun. Be sure to bring cash, as they don't take credit. When you show up, they have two choices, cheese enchilada... More

Joe T Garcia's is one of those places that everyone should go to if you're visiting Fort Worth. It's definitely a staple. The chips and salsa are awesome, the margaritas (we thought) could be a little stronger, but they were still yummy! Everything was tasty and brought to us as quickly as we wanted. Our waitress was super attentive and... More
