Mexican
Uncle Julio’s is a Mexican from scratch kitchen serving only the freshest ingredients. Specialties include: chicken & steak fajitas, tender filet mignon, and bacon wrapped shrimp. Other favorites include: seafood fajitas, shrimp al pastor, red snapper, or 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 had some issues with the noise due to my father-in-law having a hearing aid but the staff was very eager to accommodate our request for a quieter area. Very kind!

It was so cold, we asked to have the thermostat adjusted but that never happened. The floors around the kitchen area were extremely slippery.

Worse service ever. Ordered a Coke and we had to ask the server to bring it after 10 minutes of waiting for it. Then we waited and our order came out. Not only was it the wrong order, the steak and chicken looked dried out. Don't know how anything tasted because there was no silverware and the server couldn't be found ( different person brought the order out). We're not paying good money for lackluster service and food sitting under a heat lamp

We found our previous lunch experience to be MUCH better than our last dinner experience. Dinner was WAY too loud. We waited in the bar for 30 mins at a bar table and the waitress actually IGNORED us twice when we tried to hail her down for a drink. We ordered at the bar and I asked 2 people to help bring our drinks to the table, and neither of the 2 I asked, which included the manager, did anything to help.
THe food is fine. The tortillas are better at Lunch time, when the lil mexican lady is there to make them and the guacamole.

I always take my out-of-town guests to Uncle Julio’s, and they love it. Friday night, very busy, of course, and our waitress was adorable and upbeat, but service a little slow. Perhaps she was overburdened with tables?

My mom suggested Uncle Julio’s as where she would like to go for her birthday dinner. She and my dad had been before and raves about it, but this was my first time. WOW — SO GREAT! Everything is made from scratch every day. The strawberry margarita... OH MY GOODNESS. The margaritas at your local Mexican restaurant will never compare. The whole time I couldn’t wait to bring my husband back to try! Great great food, great service, great experience! A must go!

We were particularly please at the service. This was a visiting lunch and we did not feel rushed. Of course, we reflected this good service in her tip.

Our server had way too many tables. We had to ask multiple times for items such as refills, silverware and our check. We had to speak with the manager because our appetizer got lost in the kitchen.

This is very abnormal for this location. I’ve been dining at this location since it opened. I hope it was just one bad night. I saved the servers name and will definitely request a different server in the future.

The floors!!!!! They are so slippery that the 4 women in my party all felt like they were going to slip & fall. There is no reason why your customers have to hold on to each other to walk to or from their table. This really needs to be addressed.

Food & service was good, although a little pricey. Salsa is the best I’ve ever had, I may need to get a job there just to grab that recipe!

Delicious food and excellent service added to our celebration. Only drawback - ladies’ bathroom was not too clean. Paper towels all over the floor with the trash can overflowing.

Server Greg was positive and full of energy. We eat here often and his enthusiasm made for a positive experience. Food is good and a bit pricey but we like the place and will be back.

Thanks for a nice night.

Best meal I have had there in a while. Enchiladas were amazing and chips and salsa were great also. Love the atmosphere there and love being able to make reservations on OpenTable in advance because Uncle Julio's often has a line of people waiting at the prime dining hours.

The food is very good and very fresh. The cuisine is basically a fancier/higher quality version of the Mexican food we’ve all had. The service is very good and the salsa is the freshest I’ve ever had. Be sure to get the chocolate piñata!

I had the bowl of chicken tortilla soup. The bowl was small and there was one bite of chicken in it. The food family members ate looked very good and they were very satisfied. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids but the noise level was great enough I could hear or be heard by the family members across the table from me in a booth. The chocolate Lovers piñata was the star of the meal and I will likely come back just for the fun of desert.

I was disappointed with the fish taco entree. The fish was over cooked and the fish portion was very thin. Otherwise I believe the rest of the party was satisfied with their food. The service was acceptable for a busy restaurant. This is my third visit and I expect to return again.
