Joe T's is an absolute icon in Fort Worth. Locals have been eating and having parties here for decades. Started in the front room of an old house on the Northside, it is not a fancy place at all. After expanding, it's now pretty big and is always packed. Service is fast, but they won't rush you if you want... More

The courtyard setting area was nice and shaded with several water fountains. We had margaritas and they were good. No menus. You order either fajitas or enchiladas and tacos. The plates of fajitas were a lot of food and we ended up taking some home. Guacamole was fresh, chips and salsa were kept full, overall it was a pleasant dining... More

Joe T Garcia's is one of the best Mexican Fokd restaurants I have ate at. If you like the outdoors over half of area is outside. People like it so much they are lined up. They also have several large areas for rentals. CAUTION: they do not take credit cards. Cash only. They do have son ATMS for you though.

The atmosphere is the reason to go. Margaritas are good and strong but the food is below average. Service is hit or miss. Not bad experience but not worth the hype for sure. Food quality and taste needs improvement.

Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere! The food is tasty, the drinks always satisfy, but the best part is the ambience. If the weather is good, you MUST sit outside.

So maybe not the best, but this place is fun and garners a fabulous Ft Worth tradition. Food is always good, and of course the salsa is wonderful.

If you are interested in eating authentic, well prepared Mexican Food; this is the place to go in Fort Worth. I traveled almost 1000 miles to get back to this restaurant. I was not disappointed. Visited and ate here six years ago. I had to go back to insure that the first time was not a fluke. As good as... More

One of the Joe T regulars. I've been going there literally for decades (five to be exact). This facility is a Mexican Hacienda garden on steroids. It is easily the most beautiful Mexican restaurant I've ever set foot in. If you are into tropical foliage and like industrial strength margaritas, this just might be the place for you. Food is...

We were on the way to the Stockyards and stopped in to JT for lunch on the patio. The food was good but not as good as I expected it to be. They were pretty fast. I had a margarita on the rocks and it tasted just like pure lime juice. That may bias my review a bit as it... More

Excellent service, authentic food, smooth & strong margaritas. They only serve fajitas & enchiladas. Only take cash & checks!
