Stopped in on a Wednesday afternoon with a small group of friends for drinks and snacks. Wanted to sit in the much talked about garden area but the wait was well over an hour, so we opted to go inside. We were sat almost immediately and ordered what I was told was the best margarita in the Dallas fort Worth... More

It has been years since I visited Joe T. Garcia's, so we decided to try it for dinner. At night, there are no menus and only two main entrees offered; fajitas or enchiladas.The portion sizes are very good and they are reasonably priced. The fajitas were good, but the enchiladas were nothing special. We also ordered margaritas and they were... More

The gardens at Joe T's are absolutely beautiful. There are seats scattered throughout the garden but you can also sit inside the restaurant. Don't let the long lines scare you, it often moves very quickly. Don't go here if you're looking for variety as they only have a few select items. Margaritas and fajitas seem to be the popular choices.

We arrived around noon on a Sunday and there was no waiting. The outside is deceptively small, as much of the seating space is in a large courtyard behind a stone wall. A mariachi band played while we ate. The courtyard is casually elegant, with fountains and stone. The food is authentic without being too spicy. Reasonable prices.

Great food and margaritas. We had beef fajitas. It is worth the wait. Bring cash. Mariachi band sang to me for my birthday. It was fun!

The food is good but not great. The patio style setting and ambiance is why you come here. Family friendly but you need to bring cash. $$$

Went with some business colleagues after a long day at a conference. Parking was pretty easy -- but I think the walk to the table through all the patio seating took longer than the drive to the place. It's GIANT out there! Which is a great thing. The patio is very nice and we loved it. It's easy to order... More

Go early. The line is always out the door. Atmosphere is great. We were there for a party and had a reserved room. There's plenty of patio dining. The service is great. Margaritas are the drink to have. The food is routine Tex-Mex. Slightly over priced by the whole package makes it worth it.

Great traditional chips and salsa. Spicy picante really. Chile relleno was not good. Too much batter. Tortilla soup was awesome. Beef fajitas not so much. If the same were served in a chain restaurant it would be out of business in a year.

Good food, Jaime our wait person was super and wow what generous portions! They don't take credit cards which is a bit troublesome if you are not prepared. If the weather is nice definitely sit out in the patio garden. It is amazing!
