    Show up early and sit outside. Take advantage of your ability to drink margaritas while in line. Order margarita pitcher once inside. Eat fajitas. Celebrate your awesome life.

    As an outsider visiting you must know they only serve 2 things on the menu, only accept cash and you wait in line for a seat. Other than that the food is amazing and well worth the wait.
  • Shannon M.
    Everything about Joe Ts is great! Love! Our stop at least twice a week. The wait in line is part of the experience to be seated in the famous gardens. Margaritas a must!

    Margarita with Sangria swirl was so good! Went for dinner and they give you 2 options: enchiladas or fajitas. Shared the enchilada meal - very good and filling. Patio and grounds are gorgeous!

    An absolute must if you're visiting Fort Worth, but go on the warm day! Brave the line with a rita in hand, and enjoy the famous outdoor patio. There are only two menu items: fajitas and enchiladas.

    Just four of us. We shared two plates of fajitas and an enchilada plate. It was more than enough. We took some tacos and guacamole home. So come hungry or order less than you think you can eat.

    Best place for a romantic dinner or a night out with your best friends. There are heaters, so you can still enjoy the beautiful outside garden area once Texas decides it's winter time.

    This is a staple mainly for the atmosphere & margs! Recommend margaritas on the rocks and you're limit to options but combo fajitas are always good. Grilled jalapeño pepper awesome!

    The Fajitas and margaritas are some of the best around DFW. Make sure you sit on the patio if the weather is nice. Cash only.

    Cash only, they have ATMs inside, sit outside on the huge, lushly landscaped patio, and the fajitas are amazing!

    Fort Worth institution. You will wait in a pretty long line on a Friday or Saturday. Try the fajitas. Sit in the fabulous garden.

    I was no impressed by the fajitas. The meat is cut very small and the beef and chicken taste the same. However - the salsa, guacamole and cheese enchiladas (I got a bite of sisters) were great!

    Best Mexican around! Try the Fajitas but don't miss the family style dinner with amazing nachos and tacos included!

    This is a beautiful place, especially for outside dining. However, this is a cash only place so if you are used to paying with cards then leave those at home.

    We ate inside because it was too cold out but definitely a must stop if you are in Ft. Worth. The fajitas are awesome.

    If you're not a fan of fajitas or enchiladas, they have tacos you can order that aren't on the menu. Delicious!

    Sit outside and bring cash. They don't take credit cards. There's no better place for fajitas on a warm Texas night.

  • Jennifer D.

    Well the place only off 3 entrees so not much to choose from. However, it is a stockyard staple so there are no complaints for its authenticity. The cocktails are not much to write home about.

    I know people love this place and it's a huge hit in Fort Worth but for me...worst enchiladas I've ever eaten. I don't understand the sauce and the cheese didn't taste real.

    Worst recommendation. 2 orders of fajitas and only 1 set of condiments. Not nice having other people touch my food. A guy wrapping the silverware dropped it, picked it up and put it back on table. Yuk

    A Forth Worth classic, there are only two menu options: nachos and fajitas- both served family style. So come with a full party and an empty stomach because there is plenty of food to go around,
