The chicken was yellow in color. When I asked what they marinated it in, they could not answer the simple question. I think they buy it like that and just cook it up for you. I cook a lot, and I can tell you, the...More

Everyone knows that Joe T's is a destination spot while in Fort Worth. Family run place and you of course you will see Joe in his signature Khaki pants, tennis shoes, and short sleeved shirt. The food is good, but I come for the patio...More

Margareta’s are the bomb. Nachos are great. Can’t go wrong with enchiladas. The outdoor patio is a must. Great family party or just dinner gathering. A must see eat and visit

The only nice thing here is the outdoor patio seating....We came for dinner (probably should have come for lunch due to more options offered) They offer beef or chicken fajita choices only. No menus. The servers verbally advise you. Also, the drinks are served in...More

My first visit to Joe T's garners a mixed review. My family and I arrived at 10:30 and there was already a short line, but we were still able to be seated by the beautiful fountain pool. The entire serene atmosphere is just wonderful! I...More

We have always went around 5-7pm on any weekend night, so, I cannot really answer the question. I have always had to wait in line. However, you can get drinks from the bar inside to help pass the time. The line has always... More
