What a unique experience. Will come back!

The food was great but I will always remember this place not only for the food but for the unique atmosphere, the outdoor gsrden area is truly one of a kind. I will definitely be coming back next time I am in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. It's a must for anyone visiting.

Great place to drink and sit on the patio. The line is always long but they get you with the drinks. Margaritas are pretty awesome, they are made with everclear. Now to get to the food, not worth the price. You either eat enchiladas or fajitas, they are made obviously in mass quantities, cheaper for them, more expensive for us.... More

Well let's start with the food. It was delicious, it was plentiful, and the restaurant is very large, yet the food came out quickly. Eating in the gardens is very scenic and on a beautiful day it is a great atmosphere. Now the service was disappointing. It seemed like the servers are either overworked, or not into customer service. I... More

Lunch on Sunday's is always a long line. We ate inside. The waitress was marginal, always in a hurry, and zero personality. I was embarrassed after building Joe T's up as THE Fort Worth Mexican restaurant. Chicken fijita's were totally dry. Very disappointed.

The lines are long the wait is over an hour and the food is no better than Taco Bell. If you like this food you've never had good mexican/tex mex food and are used to eating crap food. There are a dozen restaurants near here that taste better and have a better menu. The dinner menu is limited to fajitas... More

We have been eating here since the 60's. There are no menus (that I know of) They have the family dinner and fajitas. We have always gotten the family dinner but our son and his girlfriend were in town from Indianapolis wanted the fajitas. They were very good! Beef and chicken. We ate on the patio and enjoyed the lush... More

I've been coming here for 39 years now and the food is always amazing. What started out as one small building has turned into the large complex that it is today. You start out with their amazing chips and salsa and then have these amazing nachos. And then their enchiladas and tacos just blow you away. Overall this is just... More

The drinks are good I admit, the food is less than average but to wait over 2-3 hours for this place is just dumb. It's a tourist attraction at best because of the long lines. Don't do it unless you wear good shoes and ate really good before hand. Disney's lines are shorter. I know Mexican food and this is... More

I've been to Joe T's dozens of times; always consistently good, best fajitas around, etc, etc. Today was a complete mess. One of four sets of silverware still had food on it. Three of four waterglasses had food on the plastic AND food floating in the water. Served salsa with no chips - at first I thought they were just... More

We have been regular customers since 1985. The food has always been unique tasting and overall very good. The last two or more times we have come here the staff seems out if sync. By that I mean that the main course has arrived at our table before the nachos which is inexcusable. The last time this happened I spoke... More
