For anyone that doesn't give this a 5 Star review.....back to clam chowder land please. Order the Mexican Dinner times the amount of people you have in your group.

If you're considering your first visit to Joe T Garcia's please please please do not be turned away from patio dinning for any reason! You may arrive to a long line but unless your party is large, that line moves fairly quickly and the hostesses do their best to make the wait as painless as possible. The patio seats 1,000... More

Very simple menu, which makes ordering a breeze. Taco meat in tacos reminded me of Jack-in-the-box tacos. Guacamole was bland, beans were good. Enchiladas tasted like they were from a can, maybe it was the sauce. The chips were stale, but the salsa was good. I love Mexican food, and I've compared a lot. The ambiance is cool and so... More

Good food for sure. Wife and I share a plate and walk away full for about 20 bucks, no drinks tip included. They only take cash. Hmmmm. I was always suspect of this. The ambiance is what gets you. It's absolutely beautiful and worth the wait. They invested allot of money into making the outside so beautiful. If your visiting...it's... More

We live in New Braunfels. Had a conference up in Ft Worth. Decided to check out Joe t Garcias as we had heard about it for ages. Service was fine. The little tostadas/nachos they serve you with melted cheese and chilis was fine. Our food came and it was awful. There was a lot of it, but it wasn't worth... More

Joe's place is an icon and everyone needs to eat there at least once....it has a limited Mexican menu that offers generally good food and good beverage selection of both beer and soft drinks, but you need to know that they do not accept any credit cards so cash or check

The outdoor seating has beautiful views and mainly why I love to go to this restaurant. However, the food is over priced for mediocre food; it's nothing special. I would come here a lot more often if they had lower prices. There is usually a long wait as well so keep that in mind if you don't have a lot... More

This place is a Fort Worth institution. They only accept cash and check, absolutely no credit cards-there is an ATM on site. Your menu choices are limited for dinner, fajitas or enchiladas. The food is good, served family style. Courtyard is beautiful, especially in warmer weather. Unfortunately our most recent visit was on a cold (43 degrees) and rainy Friday... More

This is a Ft. Worth Icon and everyone will expect you to have eaten here at least once. The atmosphere is wonderful. Lots of outdoor seating in beautiful outdoor courtyards. The food is good but not amazing. Two choices on the menu. Cash only.

Great food, great atmosphere, and great service which is incredible based on the numbers of customers they serve. We discovered them in August and have eaten there 5 or 6 times since even though it is 144 miles away from our house. We have never had a bad bite of food! Obvious Food Tip: don't make yourself choose between the... More
