Say NO to Joe...

Sorry, to the Joe T fans, but I just can't recommend this. There are too many other great options for Tex-Mex in Fort Worth to bother with Joe T Garcia's. The scenery is beautiful. That's about it. One star for the scenery. The food is bland. The service is so-so. The price is too high for what... read more

Great food, but don't expect a menu! Only two options available-- fajitas or enchiladas. CASH only... by the way (had no idea as we were there on business). Great food, but strange they dont take CC.

It's hands down one of the best patios with yummy margaritas. Great atmosphere. The food is good, not great. Fun place to meet with lots of people. The place is insanely crowded always, so they must be doing something right. Only been for dinner, but have heard there are more selections on the Brunch menu.

The food is good, not great. The service is very good and the price is right. The menu is limited. If i want mexican food this is not my first choice.

My wifes family loves this place, we go there nearly every time we visit Fort Worth. The service is always good, but be prepared to wait to get a table. If weather permits, sitting outside in thier beautiful courtyard is amazing. Their food is pretty standard mexican, but the service is fast and effecient. No Credit cards accepted , so... More

Joe T's is a once in a 5 year outing for me. It is always crowded so something keeps people coming back, I just haven't figured out what it is. The margaritas are good but over priced in my opinion. The food is just meh. I have gone to lunch there many, many years ago and you could order off... More

This restaurant is a Fort Worth institution. You have to try it at least once just to be able to say you've been. Food is just ok. Just your typical tex mex cuisine. Nothing to write home about. The margaritas were pretty good.

They have been their so long long that they live today totally off their name and history. Nothing really good about this place. They keep an ATM in the lobby because they don't take credit cards. I'm pretty sure that they own the ATM. The food is nothing great and they won't even give you a menu on Saturday, you... More

Joe T's is a place everyone in Fort Worth has been to at least once. It's owners are family. They have been in Fort Worth for years and have steadily grown the size of the restaurant and its reputation. It is a "destination" location. I have been there at least a half dozen times, primarily participating in group functions. Yes,... More
