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.

For reservations, please allow up to 15 minutes for us to prepare your table.

I love Uncle Julio's and eat there regularly. The most recent visit was off. I'm assuming our server was very new. The food had to be corrected; we had to ask for several items many times before we got it; we had to hunt him down to ask for the check and when we finally received it, it was not correct. On the plus side, management took corrective action and comped the meal.

Our waiter Pat (an abbreviated name) was great. Good advice on what margaritas to order.
As well as knowledgeable for food. He made up for unpleasant hostess.

We went there for the dessert! And that is what we should of just came for. That part was amazing, that is 5 stars. It was fun for the whole family, and tasted amazing. But the service was slow. When we got there we asked to put in a booth because we were a family of 4 with two children instead of a table. They moved us to a back corner, I don't know if it was punishment for asking for a booth but that is what it felt like. They didn't even wait on us. I finally had to ask the hostess and they found someone. Then the server that they gave us, I believe it wasn't his table so he didn't check on us like he should have. We kept running out of drinks. And that day the carbination for drinks went out. So that was a negative. Anyway the food we ordered was ok. Nothing special for the price. But the dessert hands down was the best part. Like I said the dessert is 5 stars amazing. And worth the experience. I think next time we will skip here for dinner and just come for dessert.

Uncle Julio's was a great dining experience. We took a co-worker for dinner for a group dinner. The food was great. The manager, Tess, stopped by our table multiple times to make sure things were going well. She is awesome. They were extremely busy, but she took time to stop by the customer's tables. Very customer service focused. I definitely recommend it. It is quite popular so a reservation or early arrival is recommended.

This is a fun place and the food is freshly made and very tasty -- in that respect, it beats the cheap Tex-Mex places hands-down. It is just Tex-Mex, though, basically, and pricey. I might go back for an occasion that called for a chocolate pinata! Otherwise, just if it proved convenient and I didn't mind spending extra.

We had a friend in town from South Africa. She loved the meal and especially the piñata. Nice evening and fun. It’s a little pricey.

Husband and I brought his parents here for a early Saturday night dinner.
We were able to reserve table on line for a 5:00 seating.
They liked to fact we didn’t have to wait. They loved the food.
It was an excellent choice for dinner.

The salmon with rice was amazing and the margarita was good. I didn’t think the chips were up to usual quality and that is why 3 stars. Many were glistening with oil-not the usual crispy, great taste. Of course we will return and do another taste test!!

I HAD READ SOME BAD REVIEWS ABOUT THIS PLACE BUT DECIDED TO GIVE IT A TRY. WE WERE REALLY PLEASED WITH THE SERVICE AND FOOD. EVERYONE WAS FRIENDLY, THE FOOD IS MADE FRESH WHEN YOU ORDER. THE INGREDIENTS ARE VERY HIGH QUALITY. ITS A LITTLE PRICY BUT WHEN YOU GET THIS TYPE FOOD IN THIS NICE OF A PLACE, IT HAS TO COST MORE TO STAY IN BUSINESS. I WILL BE BACK.....

The experience was good. The valet parking was good. Ii was glad that at least 1 person knew how to drive a manual. I think it’s good that valet drivers know the experience of a manual. Even though we had a we had a reservation we will had a wait time. The table side guacamole was the best but kind of pricey. The 2nd order without table side service was not as good as table side service. Overall we had a great time there. I would go back.

My husband and I have been wanting to eat here for weeks. We couldn’t get an ideal reservation time because we would wait to late to reserve. So finally we booked our anniversary dinner for the two us! It was a wonderful evening with great service and wonderful food! We really hoped to have the chocolate piñata for dessert but we were stuffed! We will come again for sure
