Worst fajitas in Texas!!! Stay away – HORRIBLE food ... fajitas were disgusting. The chicken was dry. My kids wouldn't touch it and I forced myself to eat half of the plate. I've had better fajitas at Hacienda Ranch, Luna de Noche, On the Border, just about anywhere. For a place that's been in business so long, you'd think the food would be better.

They must rely on tourist traffic because locals would only go for the drinks and atmosphere because the food is not worth any price. Worst fajitas I've ever had and I'd never go back again.

Joe T. Garcia's Review by John – I went here for the first time last Sunday night. First, who does not take debit cards in 2009? I mean come on, this is not a shady place to eat, it is a very nice location and was packed late on a Sunday night. The margaritas were $27 a picture (not that great, lacked strong flavor). The onwners need to use some of that money to pay the Debit/CC fee's (Cheapo Bandito). After learning that they do not have menus (Cheapo Bandito numero dos as well as weird and stupid if for know other reason you have to ask the waiter what everything costs even though they only serve two items (weird again), but it was annoying if for no other reason he was a little rude about it acting like "everyone in the world knows Joe T. Garcia's does not have menus" (say the last sentence in your snobiest East coast voice, cause that's how I heard it in my internal voice head while he was talking)) we found out they really do not have food for kids of which I have four (10 kids total in our party). Maybe my kids are a little picky on food, but they like what they like. Chip and salsa came (good, but hot for kids). We decided to get them chicken fajitas, same as me and my wife. The food came quickly and was hot. For the most part the food was good, (there are much better fajitas in town; Papasitos, Christina's, Chipotle even. THIS IS THE MAJOR POINT, IF YOUR ONLY GOING TO HAVE A FEW ITEMS, THEY HAD BETTER BE REALLY GOOD, KNOCK MY SOCKS OFF ITEMS) but they were overcooked and none of the kids on my tab (6 of them) would touch them because it looked and tasted more like beef fajitas. They ate beans/cheese and tortillas while the chicken got cold (Nothing is worse than paying for kids food that goes right into the Hefty bag). Finally, we asked for the check to be split (which it wasn't (that's OK, I can add) and we left. Then the fun began. I got really sick and so far have eaten one Turkey sandwich (Jimmy John's, very good) and a bowl of cereal ( Granola with fruit and nuts, also vey good) all week. I am now looking at thier website and they have a kids plate on their lunch menu as well as others items for grown ups. What kind of evil, warped menus is this? Overall, I give a one and will not be returning on my dime.

Hold Your Nose and Go in or Keep on Driving to Some Good Mexican Food – As Rachel Ray would say "Yuucco"! This place was decent in the 60's and 70's. Now it is just a tourist trap and place to be seen. The food and service are both quite inferior to almost any other Mexican food in FTW. The prices are just ridiculously high for food that tastes like a Patio TV dinner. Margaritas are good. Have to give them that. Guess if you get the sheep drunk enough they won't notice that the cat is no longer around and tamales are ready. Try almost any other Mexican food restaurant or tortillaria . They will all trump this slop. La Playa Miya, Caro's, Uncle Julio's, Taco Bueno, any of them will give you a lot better food and at least act glad to see you. Also located in a very dangerous neighborhood to be Gringo, Latino, or any non gan g banger in after dark.

Is this mexican food? – OK, I grew up in San Antonio and have lived in Fort Worth for years, come on guys, the people who gave this a good review cant be from Texas! It is the worse mexican food in town. Stick to there sister place Esparanzas, much better. The place does have great ambiance and is good for like a rehersal dinner or something, but if you are hungry for Mexican food I swear Taco Bell is better.

Did not see the big deal! – So before I go to Dallas for a great weekend out I always check the reviews of places to go and things to see. So when I saw the great reviews for the place I just knew it was going to be great. I have a BIG let down. Mexican food it my fav so I do expect alot when it comes to my margaritas and fajitas. The margaritas really were not good at all and the fajitas just did not live up to what I thought they should be. We ate at Uncle Julio's the night before and that was awsome!! Joe T's outside was great I give you that, but the food just wasnt there and when we got our bill ... they dont accept credit cards... who doesnt accept credit cards these days?? Anyways needless to say I will not be going back.

Definitely overrated! – I was excited to have lunch at this place since it's quite popular in the DFW area. I was really disappointed with the food. We ordered their specialties and it was nothing new. Definitely overrated food. The only thing nice about this place was the ambience and the grounds - other than that - don't bother coming here.

Great mexican food – Definitely worth a visit. The menu is simple, two choices if memory serves, but they're both delicious. Just be prepared for a long wait!
