Joe T. Garcia's Restaurant Review

: For 70 years, the family of founder Joe T. Garcia has been serving diners from around the country at this Fort Worth legend. The hacienda-style restaurant compound occupies a full city block and includes party pavilions and outdoor dining areas as well as the main restaurant, a white clapboard structure decked out with autographed celebrity photos. When the weather is good, there is no finer place than the Fiesta Garden to sip strong margaritas and dip warm tortilla chips in house-made salsa, but the food at this extremely high-volume restaurant is more of an afterthought: dinner choices are limited to enchiladas or fajitas. Stick to the cheese-smothered enchiladas, as the latter is served lukewarm --- no dangerously sizzling and smoking platters here --- and dry, with little difference between the beef or the chicken. At lunchtime, the menu branches out a little more with chiles rellenos, tamales, fajita salad, tortilla soup, chimichangas and flautas. Expect very long lines on weekends.
