I grew up on Joe T's, and on a recent visit thirty years later, I was pleased to see that not much has changed. Still a gorgeous courtyard (outdoor dining is the only way to go here); still a limited menu of fajitas or enchiladas;...More

Went here for a training seminar/lunch and had a buffet style service for that event. The food was excellent and the staff was real friendly.

Outside atmosphere is fantastic and margaritas are top notch. Food taste is just ok, you go for the atmosphere, not the food. Waiters don’t split checks and they only accept cash.

There were 5 of us. Every one of us were pleasantly surprised since none of us had been to Joe T Garcia’s. My daughter’s favorite Mexican restaurant in Fort Worth. Limited menu with plenty per order for two people. I cannot wait to go again.

Lively Mexican restaurant near the Stockyards. Great for family and friends to gather for indoor or outdoor dining. Great food. Great atmosphere. Good prices. Come for brunch, a late lunch or early supper as it will be crowded during high times.

An iconic Mexican place where the atmosphere is spectacular and the margaritas are stout. There are only 2 menu items, fajitas or enchiladas. It is a great place to hang out with friends and family for a few hours. The food is okay... but you...More

We’ve always gone between 6pm-8pm and had to wait a little but never very long.
