“Satisfied our Tex Mex craving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Any visitor to Ft Worth has to come here...we usually do lunch where enchiladas , tacos, and rice and beans are served family style. We were here for dinner and learned we had 2 options: enchiladas with rice and beans or fajitas. We split a fajita order and left full. Lots of great steak and chicken but needed more rice and beans. The meal was great, but the margaritas were a bit weak, small in size, and overpriced. But fast service and tons of folks enjoying the outdoor patio.

“Not so hot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Joe T's is convenient to FW Stockyards visitors. The atmosphere is great. It has the feel of a real Mexican hacienda, and the patio dining is beautiful. Mariachis seranade the tables. When I was working, out of town business VIPs loved this place...it was always somewhere they wanted to go.

HOWEVER, Joe T's doesn't give separate tickets for groups, and you have your choice of only two entrees: fajitas or enchilladas. That's it. The food was OK, but not outstanding. I probably won't go back.

“Good food, excellent venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I've been going to Joe T's since back in the 1950s with my Mom and Dad. We used to go thru the kitchen. Have seen and continue to see the famous and not do famous. The food is consistent and good the atmosphere and surroundings outside wonderful.

“Foods Okay, Great Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

It's hard to separate the food from the overall Joe T experience. The food is not the best TexMex. It's passable...I've been there a few times when even that would be a stretch, but add the gardens on a pleasant day, and it's unbeatable. Save your money on the pitcher of margaritas. They are watery, but order by the glass and they are much better.
