Opened in 1935, Joe T. Garcia's is Fort Worth's best-known restaurant, a must-do for tourists and a favorite for locals. The large landscaped patio, which can seat 750 people, is the star attraction, followed by the restaurant's potent margaritas. At dinner, the menu is limited to fajitas and enchiladas. The lunch menu features a few additional items, including chimichangas and tamales. Breakfast is available 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays; items include huevos rancheros and chiliquiles. During peak times, people wait in lines that stretch for more than a block.
