About

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.

Great ambiance and caring server who made my birthday special. You won't find burritos or chimichangas on the menu though. Mesquite chicken was juicy and amazing flavor!

Have had a good experience here on multiple occasions. A little more expensive than most, but worth the money.

The drink was good. My server was not polite. Rushed us to order and took long times to come service our table.

We had an excellent meal. We were there with 4 kids. It was fancy enough but not so much that kids were uncomfortable. And I highly recommend the chocolate piñata.

The food was great. But my waiter was super rude. Seemed like she did not want to be at my service and appeared to have an attitude. She also talked over me as I ordered my food. She brought me the wrong food. When I told her this isn’t what I ordered, she proceeded to tell me how she wasn’t wrong she didn’t prepare my food instead of apologizing they, I do say they because regardless if she prepared it or not Uncle Julios is an entire team that she is apart of, messed up my order and immediately fixing my order. Creating customer experience should be a top priority for Uncle Julios and based on how I was treated, I will not be a returning customer.

This was my second time here. Both times the food was decent but the cost of the food and drinks is way too high. We paid $75 for two people to have one drink each, small queso with chips, and our main meal. There are so many other Mexican restaurants in the area but for some reason this place is always packed and hard to get into. If I ever go back it will be more for the ambiance over the food, and maybe have one drink with an appetizer on the patio.

Service was slow, food (fajitas) was cold and not made as ordered. The manager offered to take the free table-side guacamole off our bill! Hardly trying to make up for the cold food. No apology!
We sat for long periods waiting for boxes and our bill.
No refills on drinks, not even water.
I would not recommend this restaurant and we do not plan on going back.

We enjoyed our time at Uncle Julio's was not to pleased with seating arrangements I reserved two tables next to each other they were giving away and was told because they had a lot of parties but that is the reason we made reservations. I order the pinata we got our checks no pinata waitress forgot I had ordered it when ordered food had to wait about 25 mins for pinata. Otherwise food was good and staff was nice about everything but they need take their time, listen, complete one task before moving to another and honor people reservations we were not rude and did not make a really big deal but some people might not be as friendly these are important and memorable events.

This was our first time. Salsa has a smoky chipotle flavor and a lot of black pepper. I prefer a fresh, chunky salsa. Service left a lot to be desired. She seemed very overwhelmed with her table assignments. And it wasn’t very busy. We sat a long time before she took our food order. And she mixed up our table with the one next to us with the table side guacamole. People that arrived after us received their food first. With so many choices for Mexican food, we will probably not go back here.
