The margaritas were decent and the beef fajitas were tasty BUT with only two items on the menu and being a cash only establishment, I guess I just didn't quite understand the hype. It's just weird not having a menu with prices on it even if it only shows the TWO items. I mean I get the adage that "if... More

Had food catered by Joe T's a few nights ago, and I honestly would have rather had fast food from just about anywhere instead. Tostadas had a hot chili sauce on them that my wife couldn't eat. Enchiladas and Mexican-style rice were both cold and bland. Guacamole was fairly plain except for the presence of whole-leaf cilantro, which I personally... More

We were shocked by absolutely awful the food was here. The place was packed on a Tuesday night and could not believe it. They have only two choices for dinner. There is no menu. You can choose an enchilada dinner or a fajita dinner so my husband and I ordered one of each. We tried the combination beef and chicken... More

Joe T’s is a pleasure. The Margaritas on the rocks are consistently the best year in year out. . The Nachos, Enchiladas and Fajitas are and I suspect will always be very good! The place is so popular that the the queue to enter on a Sunday for lunch can be off-puttingly long and best avoided - arrive early. Service... More

Dined here on a Sunday when a brunch menu is available. Being a tamale fan I order the tomale dinner with beans and rice. Was disappointed in the tamales, which arrived alread unwrapped and not hot. The filing was pork but not a long shredded pork as found elsewhere. Sauce has minimal flavor. Overall the dish was not memorable although... More

After a long day's drive getting to Fort Worth from Memphis, we asked our hotel clerk for a nearby Mexican food restaurant. She gave us this name which was a few blocks from our hotel. We walked there at dark, which was probably not a good idea since the street area was "dead" and poorly lit, but we made it... More

Fun place to eat, good Rita's make for an enjoyable experience on the patio. Don't be discouraged by a long line, it moves quickly.

If visiting the North Texas area do not miss a visit to Joe T Garcia's. It is a classic. There are set menu items - not the full Mexican assortment, but this does speed up the service. If the weather permits eat outside for the ambiance. Reasonably priced.

I will start this by saying. I'm sure there are a thousand amazing Mexican restaurants in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. But this by far is one of my favorites. Maybe it's because of the atmosphere- close your eyes and imagine beautiful, draping bougainvillea, warm breezes, the faint sound of mariachi music, salt on your lips from your frozen margarita- no...
