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 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!

Food was not good, waitress was pushy and misspelled my daughters name for her birthday, and the price was super expensive. My first experience here was fabulous back in December but this experience was horrible and will not be returning.

Met a couple of friends we hadn’t seen in a while so had a lot to talk about. Service, meal and ambiance was superior. Didn’t enjoy the noise level, though. It was very difficult to converse and we were in a booth. They have a huge dining area so I guess it’s impossible to reduce so much chatter. We’ll have to keep this gem of a dining experience for just the two of us in the future.

I took my niece there for her birthday. We were so pleased with our waiter Bryan, he was so attentive to us. The food went beyond our expectation. We just loved the piñata.

Thanks Bryan for being a great waiter, you deserve a raise.

Was a great experience. We went for my son’s birthday and he was very happy with everything. Our waitress was great very attentive and the food was outstanding. The chocolate penyata was the best would recommend anytime.

Atmosphere was nice but it was rather noisy. Food didn't taste authentic. The chips were too thin, the rice tasted buttery, and the black beans were watery with no mexican spice. Our waitress also did not inform me that I had a choice of tortilla for my entree, which I ended up with a corn tortilla, and preferred a flour tortilla. I will only go back to try the chocolate pinata.

We eat at Uncle Julio’s often. But this is the second time I have found a long piece of hair in my food. I will come back once they figure out how to better protect the food they are serving guest. One time for me is an accident, two times within 2 months is a pattern. It’s unfortunate because the food is actually very good.

Was not given the total portion due to allergies yet was very skimpy on the portions- they gave barely any vegetables
and no rice due to corn allergy but didn’t offer plain rice without corn or just more veggies . this was our second time there and the first we had much more food and was not slighted...
I think if you take stuff away you should make up for it in the other food or else reduce the price of the meal others at the table that hot practically the same thing under a slightly different name (three of us got meals with grilled shrimp and vegetables) anyway there meals cost less and yet they got much more
Of everything including vegetables..

This location is really nice with fresh ingredients and excellent customer service. The only issue was the explanation of the military discount policy. You have to be in uniform in order to receive the discounts. However management did honor the discount this time which appreciate. I definitely recommend this location. It has plenty of parking, the drinks are top notch. Our server Brian was excellent. Will be returning soon.

Ari, was an excellent hostess. She was cheerful and stayed on top of things. She made sure our visit was pleasant and frequently visited our table to ensure the drinks, chips and salsa were replenished before they became low and ensured we had everything we needed and we enjoyed our food.
