Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Restaurant
Established in 1935, Joe T. Garcia's remains one of Fort Worth's most popular Mexican restaurants, run by the Garcia-LanCarte family. Located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth near hotels and the cultural district, the venue features beautiful fiesta gardens with a patio. Everyone enjoys outdoor seating, complete with ferns, rippling water and huge shade trees. Try the cheese enchiladas or the fajitas (your choice of grilled beef or chicken). Excellent appetizers include Joe's nachos, quesadillas or chalupas. The popular weekend brunch begins with huevos rancheros or migas with potatoes and refried beans.
Parking sucks. It is cash only and they do not do separate checks. No big deal if you know in advance. I've had better margaritas made with everclear. Their chips are hard as a rock. The salsa sucks, my advice bring your own Pace picante and ask for a bowl. The waitstaff is rude and lazy. The menu, well there is none. It's fajitas, nachos, or enchiladas, real authentic! No choices for the kids, so mine didn't eat. I had the beef fajitas. The best I can describe it is chunks of bland pot roast served on a cold skillet with soggy onions and bell peppers. My wife had the cheese enchiladas. She described them as cheddar cheese wrapped in a tortilla, microwaved and covered with melted velveta which had already started to congeal before she was served. The nachos were tostada chips with grated cheese on them and what they called jalapeno relish. More like bellpeppers, no flavor. Bland rice and beans. Guacamole was average at best. Tortillas were soft, but cold. I've had better tacos at Jack in the Box. And better fajita meat at Taco Bell. Have they ever heard of salt and pepper? The Mexicans in the kitchen should hang their heads in shame! If you want the Fort Worth Stockyard experience, go here. They herd you in, feed you slop, butcher your wallet, and then rush you out the shoot!
As a lifelong Ft. Worth resident, the appeal of this place continues to astound. The food is very, very average, the menu selections EXTREMELY limited, they don't take credit/debit cards, and the service is very sub par. The atmosphere is nice, but only if the weather permits sitting outside. Seriously, skip this one--there are dozens of better Mexican restaurants in the metroplex.
I am 19 heard about this place about 2 years ago and I Love the food here if I was going there for my 1st time i would try to get in on LUNCH time order cause theres tons more choices at lunch than there is at supper there 2 main coarses here for supper either the Small Dinner (1 chese enchilada,1 nacho,1taco with rice and beans) the Dinner (2 chese enchiladas,2 nachos,2tacos with rice and beans) The Fajitas (beef or chicken with beans and rice) their Queso is very good also Lots more on the LUNCH menu its tons of fun when its not too hot outside u can get seated near there multiple water fountains and i think somewere way back there theres even a pool ( dont ask i dont think the will let ya swim lol) ALSO I MUST TELL YOU THEY DONT TAKE CREDIT CARDS THEY HAVE TAKEN OUT OF TOWN CHECKS BUT NOT CREDIT CARDS LOL BUT THEY DO HAVE A ATM FOR YOU TO GET SOME CASH OUT if ya needs to)
The Tortilla Soup(my personal fav) is amazing, as is everything on the menu. The atmosphere is awesome, with its many outdoor rooms.And you will be wow'ed by the service, fast, friendly(true Texas hospitality!
A+++++++ dining! Dont forget to get the queso!
Here's to keeping it simple. The dinner menu is easy. The mexican dinner or fajitas. The dinner is two cheese nachos, two cheese enchiladas, two tacos, guacamole, rice, beans and warm corn tortillas served family style. I reccomend the dinner. But, for fajita lovers, you won't be disappointed. I've been going to this place regularly my entire life, and it can't be beat for great tex-mex. The margaritas will make your hair stand on end, and the service is always excellent. Be aware that they accept cash only.
