A Fort Worth classic!

THE place to eat Mexican food in Fort Worth. Despite the fact that the restaurant takes only checks or cash and has limited food selections, this place is always packed with beautiful The grounds are beautiful with tons of space. Great drinks with a friendly staff.

The food is family style I live here and don't eat here unless someone from out if town wants it. Not one I would pick.

There's a lot of misplaced admiration for this restaurant. It's a mystery to me why anyone would visit more than one time. Here's what I found strange: 1. This place is very spread out - into a compound - and I couldn't find the front door, 2. no menu was offered (which means you pull from past experiences of other... More

Food was excellent, as usual. If you can stand the heat, the courtyard is a very pleasant atmosphere. The fajita beef salad was awesome; $8 and literally $8 worth of steak on the salad. Would easily order that again.

I'll try to highlight the pros and cons of Joe T's. I've been to Joe T's several times over the years, and it's nearly always a cluster f, as far as service goes. I do not recommend eating there on the weekend, the parking and waiting in line is excessive for the dining experience. The food is average at best,... More

We ate at Joe T Garcia's yesterday. I have literally wanted to try them for years, based on postings on other review sites. In talking with a local couple in line, it sounds like there aren't a lot of great Tex-Mex options in the Metroplex, which is one of the reasons that Garcia's has such a following. Coming from the...

There are lots of good Mexican restaurants in DFW & this is one to be sure. Then there are the must-go-to ones that are special for some intangible reason. As a rule, they've been around a while & used to be on the best kept secret lists of those in the know. Now, everyone knows about them but they just... More

Took my daughter to Joe's for lunch and we had a great table and good food! It is not a regular stop for me but have always enjoyed it for many years.

If you want to experience a Fort Worth icon, the patio dining experience at Joe T Garcias is one you cannot miss. Definitely a place I would take visitors, but only for the ambience. The food is average at best in my opinion. Lots of places to get better Mexican food in town. Still, you can't beat the atmosphere! (Bring... More

I wanted something different to taste so I tried Joe T, I've heard lots of good things about this place and wanted to see or taste for my self. The setting was great inside and out staff was respectful and courteous and fast. No much on the menu but the food was great and the margarita was good.
