If you’ve been to Fort Worth and didn’t make it to Joe T’s in the Stockyards…. well, you didn’t really visit Fort Worth at all. It’s a quintessential patio experience, and you’re almost guaranteed to be seated near one of the dozens of fountains and waterfalls scattered throughout the property. A pitcher of Joe T’s nearly-lethal margaritas for the table is a must. Ordering is easy: choose from one of two entrees: fajitas or the cheese enchilada dinner. Both are straightforward, no-fuss Tex-Mex classics, but we recommend the enchiladas, as you also get a cheese nacho appetizer to help soak up those margaritas.
