Let's see... First off they do not accept cards but they do have an ATM in house so that makes up for it. The margaritas are very POTENT! YUUMMM!Order fajitas or enchiladas. The end. Fajitas, well I've had better but these are delicious & edible :-) The patio seating is marvelous!! Do it! The only drawback about sitting indoors is they will do their best to get you in & out! They are always busy and will need your table ASAP!! Its best you sit outdoors. Nice wonderful staff & if you have a sweet tooth after your meal go across the street to Esperanza's Bakery & Cafe (still part of the Lancarte & Garcia Family). They have the BEST Mexican pastries anyone could wish for. That's what I look forward to every time I visit Joe T. Garcia's. Overall a good restaurant.

If you do not like Joe T's, you're either dead or a communist zombie or have serious mental instability issues and would complain about free beer and lollipops. Any review less than 6-stars here, should be totally disregarded.

If you are head to Fort Worth you have to go to Joe T Garicia's. They have the best fajitas and margaritas EVER!! The atmosphere is so relaxing and the service is fast just don't forget to bring cash or your check book they don't take credit cards!

Great atmosphere! Good margaritas but mediocre food. Remember to bring cash as they do not accept credit cards. I suggest trying to sit outside, weather permitting. The patio, lush greenery and pool are beautiful. Their margaritas are famously potent. I suggest purchasing pitchers for the table. Favorite spot for locals and tourists alike. Their dinner menu is extremely limited, patrons have choice of enchiladas or fajitas. Overall, a better spot for happy hour as their dinner menu has limited choices.

a wonderful Ft Worth tradition. Joe T's does have a variety of foods and a menu from which you can select during the day. It is true that during the dinner hour they limit dinner selection to either enchilada dinner or fajitas. The reason for this, I'm sure is the sheer volume. There is almost always a long line and by limiting the menu items they can serve more customers in an evening and limit the wait time. True they are a cash only restaurant, but they have signs posted stating that, and there are ATMs available on prem. We are regular customers and have been for 30 years. We truly enjoy our evenings there and are treated very well by the staff. I highly recommend the Joe T experience

A local favorite of mine

Joe T's has been around almost as long as Fort Worth itself. It's a family owned restraunt that still does things the old fashioned way..they only have a few items on the menu (they are NOT a chain restraunt) they make two items and make the the RIGHT way. Bring your cash because they do not accept credit cards. Back when Joe T's opened there was no such thing as credit cards. Sit outside and enjoy the lovely landscaped grounds with a yummy margarita!!!

Not a good experience our waitress was rude; would not recommend this restaurant to anyone

I don't understand a restaurant that does not take credit cards; but will take a personal check. That does not make any sense to me at all. Also a restaurant that does not a variety of foods to choose. You can only order one of 6 items. I will not return; the food wasn't even that good

Joe T's is a Fort Worth staple, not to be missed. The locals love it! The restaurant has an extensive history dating back for years, no wonder with the great food & awesome margaritas. A family owned business, many celebrities have visited along with former presidents. Cash only & dinner has no menu with two selections, but they are both wonderful. The patio is extensive with thick landscaping & fountains - beautiful!

It was okay

The atmosphere is the good thing about this place. We sat outside on a cooler evening, and all of the plants and fountains made it enjoyable. The food wasn't that good, and there were only two things that you could order - fajitas or enchiladas (even for children). This is not a place to take picky kids. Mine had to get something else to eat after we got home.

We always go here in the summer time. It is a great place to eat and have drinks with friends. Great pricing on some of the things, some things are expensive but it is well worth the visit.

Great Mexican Food!

Joe T's is not to be missed. This family-style restaurant in Ft. Worth always serves great food and is really fun with large parties. Evenings outside in their back patio, margarita in hand, eating their excellent food - Texas doesn't get much better than this!
