Highly recommended and was the best authentic meal we had during our trip to Amarillo. The surroundings complimented the atmosphere which was upheld by the welcoming servers. wonderful selection of food which was seemingly being enjoyed by young and old alike. shame we live across the pond or would be a frequent visitor.

Very busy place, difficult to get to, odd hours. More choices in Amarillo and easier access. Plus all Mexican food around here is bland

Joe Taco is always on our 'Go To' list when we travel cross country in our motorhome. The menu has a nice variety of different & fun foods, the drinks are always cold and refreshing and of course the outside patio area and live music add to an energetic atmosphere. There is nothing more satisfying then an ice cold draft... More

While visiting relatives in Amarillo, this is the first place they took us to eat. I'm not an expert on the differences between Tex-Mex and Mexican, but the menu offered a wide variety of dishes I don't normally see and everything we had was very good. The portions were ample and the service was excellent. We were there in the... More

I have never heard of a stuffed avocado. It was delicious. So was the frozen margarita swirled with homemade sangria. The place is very busy and has very high energy. Enjoy!

Was looking for a place to start off our stay in Amarillo and found this place with good reviews. Wow wow wow!! Delicious! Erica was our waiter. She greeted us with a smile and gave us great direction on the menu. I had truck tacos with skinny meat. So much flavor spicy? YES! But oh so good with a good... More

We always stop at Joe Taco when traveling through Amarillo. Happened upon it a few years ago and now we always stop there. They always have something new on the menu to order and we are always pleased. Love this place and we can have our dog out on the patio. They bring her a cold bowl of water.

Met friends for supper. Everyone ordered a different entree and everyone agreed their's was extremely too salty (seasoning salts). Conversation with friends was difficult due to loud,obnoxious yelling (not talking). It was only 6:00pm. Not enjoyable like it use to be.

The food is fantastic, a great variety. The different types of salsa and chips they deliver to your table before the meal, can fill you up. The food is worth waiting for. The bar has great service. They even have live bands on the patios. The only bad thing about this place is the parking. Great choice!
