Mexican
Uncle Julio’s is a Mexican from scratch kitchen serving only the freshest ingredients. Specialties: chicken & steak fajitas, tender filet mignon, and bacon wrapped shrimp. Other favorites include: seafood fajitas, shrimp al pastor, and ahi tuna served with homemade corn tortillas or bibb lettuce.

Uncle Julio’s menu also includes Tex-Mex classics such as tacos, enchiladas & tamales all with a selection of sauces made daily. Insider tip: order the tableside guacamole. It’s prepared for you at your table; if you like it spicy kick it up a notch with fresh chopped jalapenos.

Uncle Julio’s has a vast drink selection. Try our fresh margarita of the day, made to order with fresh fruit. If you prefer a frozen drink then the Swirl is definitely the perfect choice. The Swirl is frozen sangria & frozen margarita layered together dating back to 1987.

We were seated in the back, which wasn’t a problem. We ordered our drinks and my boyfriends drink came with salt when he asked for no salt. They tried to wipe it off without making a new one. We ordered an appetizer and it came out but no plates to put it on. Our server never came back with plates so we had to hover over the plate in the middle to try and not get any of the sauce on us. The food came out and my fajitas were bland and not sizzling. They were warm but not hot. They had to go back and get corn tortillas which took a while. We weren’t really asked if we needed more drinks. The server came back and asked if we wanted boxes we said yes. She brought the boxes and the check without even checking to see if we wanted dessert. I’ve heard great things about it but I was not impressed at all.

We made 6:00 reservations for after a movie. Upon entering at 5:40, my wofe told teh young lady at the Reception podium that we were early and asked if they could seat us early. The young lady looked at her as if she were speaking in tongues then said "no". Fortunately another lady at the podium heard the conversation and took over. We were given the obligatory "call" disk and directed to the bar. Once we were checked in, the service was fabulous. The server at the Bar an dour waitress, Regina, were both fabulous as was everyone else in teh dining area we interacted with. The food however was so salty it was almost inedible. My wife did not finish her Chicken Tortilla soup and I did finish the Nachos I ordered but I was really hungry, put som eextra sour cream on them and paid for that decision later.

We got the chocolate pinata for dessert for my grandson. He absolutely LOVED it. It is such a cute
way to spend his birthday. The fajitas and tacos were also very good.

Loud...disappointing entree...had cheese enchilada that was tough and tasted like processed cheese whiz. Corn chips were greasy. Would not go back or recommend this restaurant.

We were two groups and we ordered the same thing.. 2 steak fajitas and 2 kids fajitas.. But the value of the food was not the same.. one of the portion have more food on it than the other one.. kids plates have the same issue.. I don’t know how you measure the portions but you need to be more careful about this.
That was the only problem we had that night!
Thank you!

Don't order the "large" guacamole. It was a few tablespoons of guac on top of a lot of shredded lettuce, you couldn't scrape off just the guac without lettuce! We sent it back. ☹ On the other hand, the chicken and bacon fajitas sauce was delicious (although the bacon was mostly just half done). My husband made the mistake of ordering cheese and onion burritos vegi, and it was a tasteless dish. Waitress was excellent. Margarita (watermelon) was excellent too. Portions were a bit skimpy for the prices amd not very hot (temperature wise, i expected fajitas to be sizzling).

It was really dark in there. We took our two-year-old daughter there for her birthday to do the chocolate piñata, which she loved. The steak in our fajita was pretty gristley and $8 for such a small portion of guacamole seemed expensive... the the in-house made tortillas made up for it.

Excellent service and great food. The only reason this is a 4 star review and not 5 overall is because there was an issue with the tortilla maker and our fajitas were served about 10-12 minutes before any tortillas were available. The manager was great and comped our tableside guacamole for the inconvenience. Things happen and we still had a great time and our dinner was delicious!
