My niece recently had her birthday party at Joe T's. It was a Saturday night with a party of 15, so the wait was a while, and unfortunately left us waiting in the rain under umbrellas. We'd been here once before so we were prepared...More

We came for lunch after tons of friends recommended it. When you wait for a table, you stand in line the whole time which isn’t ideal. Luckily, their margaritas are amazing and help you pass the time better! We shared fajitas and they were good...More

Countless people recommended Joe T’s for great Mexican food. We were disappointed. The food is OK - not great. We ordered both the enchilada plate and mixed fajita to taste both their dishes. The fajita beef was very tender. The waiter was nice. There are...More

Everything about this place is great: the atmosphere, the service, THE FOOD, absolutely impeccable. The menu is limited, but in a good way. Those chicken fajitas are straight from heaven. And the salsa. And the margaritas. And the guacamole. The entire service experience, from seating...More

Stopped in to Joe T Garcia’s because some friends thought it would be a fun place to eat at. The place has a beautiful garden and the atmosphere is very nice, but the food is just average. I have had better Mexican food in Detroit....More

We didnt read much about this place and only knew it was famous. The wait was horribly long and weaves around like Disney. You don't leave a name and then wait. You have to actually stand in line like Disney. It is also cash only!...More

Great lunch and service! Hugh outdoor patio that is very scenic. Indoor area is very authentic. Family friendly. Prices very reasonable.

Go so you can say you've been there, but, from our experience, do not expect good food or service. Felt like eating at Six Flags. Service was poor to very poor.

This place has been around as long as I can remember. It has a beautiful patio to sit outside and it is only a short walk from the Stockyards on 22nd street. We ordered the cheese enchilada with rice and beans, nacho, beef taco, hot...More

Depends on Lunch or Dinner, but you can expect $10-$15/plate. Margaritas are $7 I think. There are cheaper places to eat Mexican food around there, but they have the corner on a couple of things: INSANELY cool environment... More
