40 Years Running - Still worth the trip

Joe T's is a Fort Worth legend. And the ambiance, service, and food is still off the chart. Oh, and I almost forgot, the margarita's are excellent as well. Our group had fajitas. Large servings of goodness. This is a must stop if you are in Fort Worth.

This place is good for the drinks and nothing else. There is a beautiful inner courtyard that truly is a must see. Unfortunately the food is inedible. If you want to eat good Mexican food try any of the taqueria on Hemphill.

A long time Ft. Worth staple and a must when you visit Ft. Worth. I grew up with the family and have spent many a wonderful night dining and relaxing . The family has maintained the same quality food and service down through the years and have maintained the JOE T. GARCIA"S tradition !

When it comes to Tex Mex here in Fort Worth, 6 is one half dozen is the other. Most restiraunts on the Northside are decent, and about like all the others. Joe Ts is no exception but what does stand out is there margaritas and atmosphere so I put it above the pack.

My wife and I love Joe T. Garcia's so much, that we had our rehearsal dinner there. The food is always awesome. You get a ton of it for the money, too. We have always gotten good service, too. Just make sure you bring cash!!!

Located in the Fort Worth Stockyards Joe T, Garcia's is very popular. Their outdoor patio area is a wonderful place to have dinner. Food choices are fajitas or enchiladas, that is it. With that limited focus you would expect the food to be exceptional. We found it mediocre, ok but well short of dozens of other Mexican Restaurants in the... More

Joe T's is a Fort Worth landmark! The setting is beautiful, but the food disappoints. We eat there for special events about once a year. The food quality just gets worse. It isn't worth the money.

Joe T. Garcia's is our favorite restaurant for Texas style Mexican food, and we have tried a great many places. We visit it almost every time we come to Fort Worth. That said, it is not for everyone. There are only two items on the menu - enchiladas and fajitas. They do not take credit cards, and the place has... More

5th time to eat at joes. They never disapoint. Food was amazing wait staff is top notch. Huge line to get in but took less than 20 minutes. If your close to the stockyards check them out. If your not. It's worth the drive.
