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.

I did not like the food; it was not wow. I've had better for lower price. The ceviche was awful. It was difficult-impossible to eat due to the the extreme tart/spicy/overbearing flavor; like sucking on a lemon and/or lime with spices. Could not taste the flavor of the shrimp and scallops. I will not return to Julio's nor would I recommend :(

Our server Devonte was great! The young girl at the front was extremely rude about our reservations she said she told us it was two separate tables and would not accommodate at least all the Adults together and wanted to sit two adults with the kids at another table. We were so close to walking out we spent good money there and that’s my main complaint her rudeness the manager was very helpful and fixed this after she made a big scene about it it was extremely embarrassing. The food was great and so was the server and manager!

Love uncle julios- this is my 3rd visit, and the fajitas are simply the best!
This trip I did reserve a table for 14 as it was a family get together and we were separated at 2 tables- wish we could have been at 1 table!

We had a wonderful time dining at Uncle Julio's. The food and atmosphere was great and our John our waiter was EXCEPTIONAL. He greeted us with a smile and just gave us the best service. I have been to other Uncle Julio's restaurants and had great service, but none could compare to John. He made us feel so comfortable, he anticipated our wants and needs.

Food is great. Made a reservation on Open Table. Checked in and said I have a reservation and gave my name. Restaurant reported I was a no show, so had to respond to Open Table.

Waiter was a little slow. Took long time to get check. Need to work on service issues so that it matches the quality of the food! Love the fajitas. Great margaritas. Valet is convenient.

I used to love this place but now I was very disappointed. Extremely low vegetarian options and the food was just okay. They even took off the best vegetarian option from the menus. Not worth the price. Margarita was almost all sugar.

Grabbed a two top in the bar area... with a reservation...? Service was good, prompt and continuous!! Food and drinks arrived timely! It was a little noisy and the table was next to a service station do we had constant distractions from stacks of menus being slammed into the holder adjacent to our table.
Good was good, drinks were good, the atmosphere was a little noisier than we had experienced on other visits. I won’t be accepting a bar table when I had a reservation in the future... nor should it have been the table sat!

It was a birthday celebration. The birthday boy requested a special homemade cake. Our waiter was overly accommodating. He suggested keeping the cake in a refrigerator in the kitchen. After dinner when the time was right, he lit the candles and brought it out . He went above and beyond to see that we were happy. And separate checks was no big deal for him. I wish I had a copy of my receipt so I could acknowledge our specific waiter. He did an excellent job. I’ll definitely be back. Thank you for making our celebration special.

My grandson had been to Uncle Julio's and he recommended we go there to celebrate my husband's 80th birthday. That's just what the six of us did and we had an excellent time. The food looked beautiful and was truly delicious Mexican food. We surprised my husband with the chocolate pinata and highly recommend getting it.

I've eaten at Uncle Julio's a few times over the years. Each time I hope it will be better. But the tables were so close together this time that I was jostled every time anyone walked past be at customer or server or hostess. We move the table back a little bit and it still continue to happen. It was very busy that evening so we knew that service would be a bit hampered. However our server only saw us twice the whole time we were there. The meal was mediocre the beans were brought out second on my plate after the meal had come I didn't eat them anyway I told her just to forget it and she brought them anyway however that's so ever was. The noise level was so high my ears were ringing afterwards. So I think that this is my last visit to Uncle Julio's there are too many good Mexican food places in the city.

This was my first visit to Uncle Julio's. It was my husband's birthday, so we brought the family. We had a fun experience. It was loud, but not out of place for the nature of the venue. The food was tasty, our waitperson friendly, and the chocolate piñata made it special.
