“Your Average Joe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2011

Service was good, but the food was kinda blah - not much spice or flavor to it.

I like some gusto from my Tex-Mex, and a little sweat on the brow - neither came with my order of enchiladas w/ green chile sauce.

The table next to me was overheard asking "Do you have any hot sauce?" so I wasn't alone looking for more.

On a more positive note, the swirl & side of guacamole were good.

“AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

Joe Taco is one of our family favorites. My husband and I LOVE their Carne Caliente. The kids like the chicken strips off the kids' menu. The chips and hot sauce are great and my son loves their queso.

We've always been seated right away when it's just our family of four. The wait has been a little long when we've had parties of 6 or more.
