yes, Joe T's is open.
But they do not serve their food cafateria style (like what Golden Corral does). They serve the food family style. All side dishes are served on large platters, just like mom does at home. It is similar to PF Changs, if you have every eaten there, but the main dishes are served individually.
One word of warning about Joe Ts (because people seem to not believe it), they ONLY take cash and checks. No credit cards are accepted! There is an ATM onsite that is rediculously expensive to use. If you go, make sure to have plenty of cash on you. The dinner is about $13/person, fajitas are about $15/person. Pitchers of maragritas are about $30 (and worth every penny.....I order one just for me!).
