Everything was delicious. Even though the place is popular with tourists to Fort Worth, the food is very good. They represent Fort Worth very well.

Joe T. Garcia's is an institution. I went there in November of 2015. I had enchiladas. I have had better elsewhere, even at Mexican Inn which is also a not so great place. The service was fast but very impersonal. The server didn't smile or say welcome or make me feel welcome. I'm not a fan of this place. This... More

We usually go to Joe T's for dinner with its limited menu and long waits but this time we took some out of town visitors for lunch. The menu is much more varied and we got right in. The food is good Tex Mex but not great. We go for the ambience of the outdoor patio. The gardens are beautiful... More

The food is very limited (basically just fajitas) but most people go there for the margaritas and the decor. Margaritas served by the pitcher and you can order some while waiting in line; the line is long (and first-come, first-served). The decor is beautifully filled with fountains, trees and other greenery. There is no roof, so it will likely be... More

My father grew up in Fort Worth and started going here in high school. Family owned. Now that I am 46, I have been taking my family here forever. You can eat inside if the weather is not good. They have the best patio!!! The patio is more than triple the indoor seating. Until 3:00 pm they have a menu,... More

Place is an institution in Ft Worth. Fun festive atmosphere. Great for large parties. Really fun to sit in a stop area. Would not choose this place if searching for non-Americanized Mexican food.

Other positive reviewers have said it all. We were a party of 7 - seated earlier than expected given a long, late afternoon, line. The courtyard experience was great. Margaritas were good, despite salted-rim plastic cups. Several of us ordered fajitas, others the Mexican dinner. Then we shared family-style.

The atmosphere is GREAT! .. the food is above average, just not out of the park. The only downside for us is too much food and not enough choices. If your starving, this place is perfect, if you are trying to watch what you eat or would prefer one plate of food instead of four, it's nuts to come here.... More

Had to wait almost an hour even in the middle of a Saturday afternoon but there is a reason that there is always a wait at this place. Service was awesome and the food was delicious!
