Service was excellent. For a regular sit down meal it is on the more expensive side.

Chips and salsa were amazing. We ordered the Tuesday Taco Bar and the portions of the unlimited fixings were so minuscule that we constantly had to order more, which then arrived in more minuscule amounts while the food was getting cold. When the bill arrived, we were overcharged by $25 which we had to get two iterations of corrections to remedy the problem. Other than those two issues, the food was delicious.

The food was great. We tried taco Tuesday special for the first time. Our server was very nice but he seemed pretty overwhelmed by the number of tables he has. We had to wait awhile for refills and more toppings for our tacos.

They really pack you in. I could barely sit down as my table and chair backed up to another table. It was also so tight that at least two times my daughter and I had to duck so we didn’t get hit in the head by a tray.

Will probably never visit again. Watched 5 parties get sat before us. I kept getting the "we are cleaning your table" line when asked why others were being sat before us. Considering we passed 12 empty/ready tables on our way to our table. Then my daughter's entree was basically raw. Just doesn't compare to Columbia.....

I'm very picky when it comes to Mexican food and as such, "the bar" is very high. As compared to Mexican restaurants in Texas and Nevada, Uncle Julio's falls a tad short; not their fault, it's just fact. Woud I revisit Uncle Julio's? Yes I would.

We went to Uncle Julio's to celebrate my son's birthday - it is his favorite restaurant. We were seated quickly by very nice hostesses. Our server got our drinks quickly but never provided any refills. It took our server at least 15 minutes to take our order but the food came quickly after that. I received steak fajitas instead of carne asada and my son's girlfriend did not receive her food as ordered. That said, the food that we received (even my fajitas) were very good.
I am likely to give Uncle Julio's another chance but another mix-up may send me elsewhere.

Salsa was a little thin for my taste. And chips were so thin they broke easily in the salsa. Entrees were excellent. Service was excellent too. Quite noisy in our section.

I felt the quality of the food was average. We payed more for the guacamole to be made at the table and the young lady that makes it had a $5 bill displayed to encourage tipping. Tacky!! Service was excellent and we were not rushed. Noise level was high but it was very crowded. My expectations were just too high

Everything was wonderful except where our table was located. We were next to the computer where the servers put in the orders and cash out the checks. Even though the restaurant was full to capacity with a 45 minute wait several times throughout our meal three or four servers would stand back Near the computer and laugh and joke and get loud. At one point a server was right on top of my husbands chair pointing to something across the restaurant to another server.
other than that the meal was wonderful. The service was excellent. We had a wonderful valentine meal together and will definitely go back again.

The only complaint l have is your strawberry Margarita selection. I have had them many places and yours are just not good. The flavor is off and it was extremely disappointing. I have a recommendation...this brand is natural a is simply delicious. I strongly recommend you trying it! It’s Tres Agaves organic margarita mix.

The food was fantastic, but the service was very slow. We asked for water about 4 times before one actually landed on the table. And whenever we needed our server, he wasn't anywhere in sight. It was also interesting to see that with such slow service, a lot of the staff were standing around just chatting together like they were on break, including what seemed to be the manager. I expect to see at least a standard level of service if I go there again.
