Taco tour was a good way to sample the menu. Nice variety. Flautas were also good. Great service, attentive server. I was surprised that for a local restaurant they didn't have any local beers on tap.

I had a salad with chicken and the chicken was really dry. Hubby's meal was ok, I believe. Nothing fabulous, although we thought our waiter was nice.

We got to our hotel (Embassy Suites across the street) late, so we decided to walk across the street for dinner rather than trying to find something. What a pleasant surprise! Erik took care of us that evening. He was friendly, funny, and efficient. They...have a good selection of beers, and great margaritas, with a different special each evening. The pulled pork quesadillas were especially good. We also tried the chicken and brisket tacos, which were good. The food was so good there we came back a couple of nights later for food and a drink. Very lowkey, relaxed atmosphere with good food, beverages and prices. The only thing we had that we weren't overwhelmed with was the stuffed jalapenos. They were mostly breading and jalapeno and little filling. Not bad, but we've had better.More

We ate at the Buchanan St restaurant of Joe Taco and it was superb. We had a variety of menu items and each was delicious, fresh. Flautas, salads, Mexican brisket all fantastic. The salsas were also excellent. As were the margaritas. We have a cilantro...allergy and they followed it perfectly which is very difficult to execute. This was a takeout order also difficult to execute, and it was still amazing.More

We went here for dinner tonight. My husband ordered the chicken flautas and said they were the best he had had in a long time. I had a $4 strawberry margarita and taqueria tacos. I was able to mix and match my tacos so I...had one skinny chicken, one marinated beef fajita, and one green chile pork taco , all with corn tortillas. They were all really good, but the green chile pork was my favorite. I would eat here again if we came back through Amarillo.More

We were staying next door at Embassy Suites so it was easy to walk over. Food selection was good. Fish tacos were fantastic and their chips and salsa were delicious. The kids enjoyed their food as well (kids menu wasn’t available online but they have...several options). I had a watermelon margarita from the bar and it was amazing. Would definitely eat there again.More

Very fresh & guac was great. Really disappointed in “queso blanco” sauce on enchiladas.... tasted like Italian ricotta sauce without any hint of real Mexican queso blanco... we’ll go back but steer clear of their cheese sauce... unless we want Italian

Outstanding fajita cheese enchiladas smothered in queso. Chips & salsa go great with the margarita and queso

Even though it was kind of windy, we had a nice dinner on the patio. We got queso blanco for an appetizer. I had a stuffed avocado. My teenager had chicken tacos, and my husband had a giant burrito. Service was friendly, and I enjoyed...watching the waitress feed some leftover chips to the birds.More

Can’t say enough good things about Joe Taco’s barbecue brisket tacos. Ordered them to go along with the Baja fish tacos and a half gallon of the house margarita (only size available to go). I opted for the corn tortillas, which means you get three...crispy tacos that are savory and so full of flavor, I was happily anticipating each bite. My order came with rice and beans. My daughter really liked her fish tacos, which came with mango salsa, chipotle ranch, rice and a veggie medley. She also got the crispy corn tortillas. My order was ready when I went to pick up. Everyone was masked and friendly. Our food was not just delicious, but memorable.More
