We went to lunch at Joe T.'s after a couple told us about it at the Stockyards. It was easy to find and plenty of free parking. It was crowded and popular but it did not take long to be seated and served. Our waitress...More

Can’t understand what everyone raves about. The food is just average Mexican food. Not bad at all, but not outstanding either. Yes, the patio dining is lovely but I’m not waiting an hour for a table. We chose to eat “in the house” as they...More

Mediocre to subpar food quality even though you only have two choices... should be easy to nail that... not so. Service doesn't make up for the lack of food quality. Drinks meh... Oh yeah bring cash cuz that's all they accept, or pay to withdraw...More

If you are going with a group, try the cheese enchilada dinner family style. The food was pretty good. In the beginning it was probably excellent since the business was small, but now, as the restaurant has grown, it is typical large restaurant food. The...More

This is a place that everyone should put on their list of Fort Worth places to eat. You must be sure and bring cash because they don’t take credit but other than that detail, it is amazing all the way around. Plan ahead because there...More

We made a late night dinner stop at Joe T Garcia’s because of a recommendation online. We were not disappointed! We had the fajitas and they were great. Enough for 2-3 people as well. We heard the margaritas are the best also but we didn’t...More

Incredible. The place is tremendous. As big as it is they keep it very very clean. Wait staff was right on point. Just be prepared to wait. And wait for awhile sometimes. However it is totally worth it. Fortunately we did not have to wait....More

Hard to believe but this place is a CASH only place. They do have ATMs located inside. The menu is fairly small as they focus on only a few food groups so that they can make it the best. Food is good, not the best...More

They have a very small menu but it is delicious. Even if there is a line to get in it moves quickly and they will serve you margaritas while you wait! Amazing outdoor dining. If you eat inside it gets a little loud.

Depends on Lunch or Dinner, but you can expect $10-$15/plate. Margaritas are $7 I think. There are cheaper places to eat Mexican food around there, but they have the corner on a couple of things: INSANELY cool environment... More

The prices are moderate but it is cash only. They have an ATM in case you don't have cash on you.
