Uncle Julio's - Allen
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 7 adults and the table was for lunch 6, however they squeezed us in the table. The wait person was not very attentive, either they were understaffed or she was new, she could only take drink orders first then after they were served she would disappear to another table without asking for our order. The table was set for six, I asked for a setup when I gave her my drink order. Never got silverware, had to take it from another table. Our all you can eat tacos trays were delivered to our table and no plates were brought. Geez! It was ridiculous to sit and wait and wait for ANYONE to give us plates. Because they wedged us into a table for 6, there was not enough room to accommodate our three taco platters. They had a table that sat empty next to us, however they did not offer to push it together with our party so that we would have room to eat. I think I will make reservations for 2 extra people on there Taco Tuesday in the future.
Everything was perfect. Coming back with 4 more Saturday, January 18
Liz on the floor and jose in the kitchen is an amazing combination for success. Perfection every time!
Liz and neagle are amazing!
I got the ribs - I love your ribs. They were tough and very dry this time. Disappointed, it was my boyfriend’s birthday and it was the first time the food was bad
My nephews birthday. Celebrated with piñata
Laura was our waitress and she was awesome!!
Chips were all oily I asked for more and then they were burnt...salt and pepper shakers so slimey and my beef was all fat. The past few times here were so very disappointing....

Fajitas are delicious! The chocolate lover’s piñata was superb!
Goid overall. Maybe a bit pricey but food is tasty.
The food was NOT good. My husband order the $35 filet fajitas medium rare. They were served COLD to the rich. When he said something they took them and brought them back medium well/well. They clearly didn’t prepare a new warm/cooked steak but rather threw the cold steak on the grill and overcooked it. He didn’t eat! My son, who’s 8th birthday it was, didn’t like his kids tacos. His favorite food is tacos! The food was very over priced for the quality and taste. The chocolate piñata was fabulous and our server was attentive and polite but for $200 for 5 people it was a terrible experience overall and we won’t ever come back.

Family outing for Christmas
Love this place. Food is Amazing always hot and quick. Service is the best I’ve had in a restaurant.
Restaurant was very busy. Seated near our reservation time, food and drinks came fast. Fajitas were cooked well, but tasted very smoked. Like too much for us. Experience was good and waiter was good. Food just wasn’t great, for our taste.
Will try again

Food was okay but not great. Service was good; restaurant was extremely loud. Guacamole made at the table was not flavorful; my wife found a lump of brown avocado in it. Not impressed.
We were disappointed in our visit this time. Server seemed to struggle with every request, everyone's food came out cold. Even our checks were wrong.

Good food, good atmosphere. Only issue they didn’t have the watermelon margaritas from menu😢
I'm a regular customer and never disappointed. The manager and the waitress checked on us and both were very friendly. Outstanding restaurant.
One of our favorite testaurants!! We always look forward to eating there!!
We had great service, and the food is always good at Uncle Julio's. It is a family favorite.
We always enjoy eating at Uncle Julios.
The fajita meat is always tender & juicy.
Service is great & ambiance is the best.
We enjoyed our lunch and service. Everyone had a positive attitude to make it a good experience.
Service was poor, food overpriced, drinks overpriced, and outside lighting at night is horrible. Not sure what happened to UJ but it used to be great food and drinks at reasonable $$. The service here as always been below average.

The food here is good, the prices are more than you'd expect, but worth it. My issue is when I have a reservation, I expect you to prioritize my seating. Having a reservation does not mean that's when you get on the list. I understand there might not be a table ready EXACTLY when you arrive, but when I arrive 20 minutes BEFORE my reservation and don't get seated until 25 minutes AFTER I am not happy.
Our server was attentive. The table side guacamole is always great. Loud, but all restaurants seem to be now.
Good food and service, just too noisy for a family dinner.
Love the Chocolate Lover's Piñata! Service was very good.
My husband and I love Uncle Julio’s and frequent the location in grapevine, but we’re extremely disappointed in the staff and service at the Allen location. The wait was very long and once sat we noticed at least 10 empty tables. Our server wasn’t friendly with us and hardly checked in on us even though he was very interactive with the table next to us. He may be been overwhelmed because before we even ordered our dinner he asked if we were ready for dessert.

Margaritas just OK. Food better than that. Awfully loud.
Great food! We shared Guadalajara with filet! The meat was so tender and flavorful!
The shrimp tacos need a little more shrimp and a little less fruit! The swirl wasn’t as good as the old days. The grapefruit margarita was delicious said my daughter in law!
Uncle Julio’s is a great place for fajitas They make the flour tortillas onsite and even give you the option of upgrading to top cut steak fajitas. The food is always good and service is always top notch. It’s nice that you can make reservations now too
First of all I was under the assumption that you had to make a reservation for this place since the prices were pretty steep. We were sat promptly, our waitress was very nice, very attentive and always had a smile on her face. That was the highlight of the night. Tableside guacamole service was top notch as well. I ordered the chicken fajitas, they did not come out sizzling like 95% of fajitas do from other restaurants. The chicken was bland no flavor and the amount of vegetables I received was a joke. Somehow they believe onions are the only vegetable that belongs with fajitas. I had a mound of onions and three small slivers of green peppers and two Slivers of red peppers. This was absolutely unacceptable. My husband ordered cheese enchiladas and he was highly disappointed with the taste. We chose to come here to celebrate his birthday since we are moving to Allen next week and we were looking for a regular Mexican restaurant for family. My family of six has decided not to return to this place ever again. The amount of money we spent was not worth half of it.

We waited an hour for our food and ended up having to take it to go. When we got home my husband’s meal was missing his refried beans.

Well seated fast but had to wait on server order drinks / appetizers no silverware or wait we had knife and napkin no forks 15 minutes on food no bad but 4 people ordered fajitas no tortillas then when they brought 5 had to ask several times for more tortillas and wait on them to eat ..,

Great food! Fantastic waiter! A little bit noisy but it was Friday night so ... Will always return for the excellent food!! 👍🏼👍🏼
Had to wait 20 minutes past reservation time. And our second round of drinks took 20 minutes because “the bar was backed up”.

We had a great experience. The food and service was awesome. We had a large group of 15 and half were kids; our server was so patient and attentive to our needs.
Great as always
