This was a very nice atmosphere. Even though it was chilly, we ate on the patio which had standing heaters. I had the chile rellenos. They were excellent. Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal. Great service, great food and great company. Would strongly recommend.

Okay, I'm a midwesterner who probably hasn't had a lot of authentic Mexican or TexMex, but this place was the bomb. A historic restaurant founded by Mexicans in 1935, the freshness and flavors of Joe T Garcia's was amazing. I wish had time to go back and if I am ever in DFW again, I'm going here. This isn't classic,... More

Joe T's is the best place to "experience" great TexMex food! The food, service, atmosphere are all wonderful. Joe T's is great for a fun night out with friends, family and business associates. Highly recommend this place...it's legendary.

Outside seating is nice, but that all there is. Fajitas are about equal to any others in the area, but enchiladas are not much. Good frozen margarita. Not worth the wait.

I have eaten at Joe's for years. If you are looking for authentic south Texas Mexican food you will find it here! We always go for the cheese enchiladas family style but everything we have eaten has been great. Today I opted for the chilaquiles. Scrambled eggs, tortillas, onions, tomatoes and cheese served with refried beans and potatoes. A perfect... More

This was one of those places that nothing can save it. Food..service..parking..price..it's all terrible. I have no clue why people like this place so much .

Joe T's is always a favorite place to eat when in Fort worth. The Mexican food is simple and great tasting. The enchilada dinner has all my favorites and there was more food than I could finish. The marguaritas were great and potent. The service was courteous and efficient and we had a great meal. After we finished we took... More

Being a native Texan, I have always heard of Joe T. Garcia's for the place to go for Mexican food in Fort Worth and North Texas. I finally had a chance to go there and was looking forward to a great dinner. There was a huge line out the door and into the street. This must be good if all... More
