best mexican restaurant at the stockyards?

We will be in Fort Worth in a few weeks, a local around here, Tulsa area, who grew up in Fort Worth told me the name of his fav Mexican Restaurant at the Stockyards, said it was the best, and I forgot the name! Any help, seems like he said it was close to the Cattlemans Steakhouse, which he also liked, please help!!

The most famous Mexican retaurant in the Stockyard area is Joe T. Garcia's...they have been in business for decades...a real Mexican food institution! However, my favorite Mexican food is the Stackyard area is El Asadero...less "Tex-Mex more Mexican....great mole and green chili enchiladas.

I completely agree with jlhaskell! Joe T. Garcia's is indeed a Fort Worth institution, but as I have stated in a previous post I just don't care for their food. I find it unimaginative and just "blah" (although their outdoor dining area is gorgeous and they do make a killer margarita). We love traveling in Mexico and find that El Asadero is authentically Mexican. It's an unpretentious little hole in the wall, but quite popular among locals. Beware the salsa though ... hot, hot, hot!

joe t's is an institution but doesnt crack my top 10... el asadero is a mile or so south on main street from stockyards..nice family run place, good food...los vaqueros is in stockyards across from billy bobs..they are good as well.

As to the food at Joe T's, I agree with the consensus of others, but on a nice day, you cannot beat their beautiful, tropical like patio setting for an afternoon rest while sipping a chilled margarita. But, I don't know if they'll allow a "cocktail only" order.
