Uncle Julio's - Fairfax Corner
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.

Very quiet, clean restaurant polite staff members and the food was delicious.
Uncle Julio's has excellent food and drink. The servers are usually prompt, helpful and professional.
The ribs are a favorite. The decor is 'mood setting', however, the acoustics are horrid. It is difficult to carry on a conversation inside at the dinner hour. Recommend outdoor seating if weather permits!
What you call an "energetic" noise level, I call "intolerably loud." It was awful. Had to almost yell to talk with folks at my table. Could not hear waitstaff. Horrible noise. Will not return for that reason.

The tacos we're delicious. I like that I can regularly count on this place for reliable service and quality food. Very pleasant experience.
Guacamole, dinner, and drinks were great. Service was average until it was time to leave. We couldn’t get our check and missed movie previews and the first part of our movie.

I asked for Happy Birthday to be written on the Chocolate Piñata Board when I made my reservations through Open Table but I guess that request didn’t make it to the staff. Also, our beans and rice arrived about 15 minutes before our meals. That seemed really odd, too. They have a unique dessert but save for that, I can’t imagine going.
Hello Christine, Happy belated birthday. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience and we are very sorry we missed the mark on your visit. We appreciate and value your feedback and your concerns are being addressed. We do hope to get the opportunity to serve you again. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Great evening celebrating a birthday. We enjoyed dinner and also enjoyed the chocolate piñata. Wonderful time
Food is always fresh and delicious. Waiter was attentive and friendly. The chips were a little greasy but the salsa is to die for!!
We love uncle Julio’s unfortunately this was the second time we came and they ran out of lobster. We were a little disappointed but the manager and waitress made it right... tho we didn’t ask for anything free they comped our piñata which we really appreciated and a welcome surprise when the bill came the service was great and the food was good as Always!
Thank you! We are very sorry we ran out the lobster, but we are so happy everything turned out great in the end. We look forward to serving you again soon. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Did a horrible job with seating ppl. No need for reservation. You won’t be seated at time of reservation.
Hello, Thank you for your business. We appreciate your review and feedback to develop and improve. We apologize we didn't meet all your expectations. We do hope to get the opportunity to serve you again. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Horrible service I do not recommend this location for anybody go to Gainesville or somewhere else.
The food was absolutely heavenly! So fresh and delicious, and the server wonderful. We went at 5 pm on a Saturday so we could get ahead of the crowd. I have a hearing loss, and it was almost impossible to understand my friend, the acoustics in this restaurant are TERRIBLE!!!!!! We sat in a booth (which I requested) to try to be away from the other diners as much as we could, but it didn't help. So if you have a hearing loss, or you are going with someone who does, just know that conversation will be difficult if not impossible. ( And I have state-of-the- art hearing aids as well. )
However, that all being said, the food and service were both outstanding. We shared a tableside guacomole and had the enchiladas. This is the best salsa and chips too.
Hello Bonnie, Thank you for your business. We are so glad you enjoyed your overall meal and drinks. We greatly appreciate you sharing your feedback regarding the acoustics as we are constantly working to improve, and this information is extremely helpful. We look forward to serving you again soon! Thank you, Uncle Julio’s
Their house margaritas are pretty tasty and not pricey. The tomales are EXCELLENT. The enchiliadas not so much.
Great place, Love getting the fajita's for two here. Also the chips and salsa hear are to die for.
Service is quick and attentive. They refilled our drinks and chips before we had to ask.
Also my 2 year old loves this place too.
Michael, thank you!
Compared to my experience at the Uncle Julio's in Fort Worth, TX, this was quite disappointing. I ordered the Lobster with chicken and beef fajitas. I only received three strips each of beef and chicken. For the price I paid, that was less than enough. The beans were a very small portion and the rice was un-flavorful and under cooked. My wife only ordered the chicken tortilla soup and it tasted more like menudo. The lobster was the best part of the meal. My daughter didn't comment on her food, but she did say that the beans were not good. The table salsa looked good but lacked flavor and spice. All this for a final ticket price of almost $150 including tip just left me with a not-so-great experience. Guess I'll stick to the mom and pops places to get more authentic and better proportioned meals.

Really enjoyable and lots of meat alternatives for Lent! Nice to have a choice for lunch potion too. Always like to go here!
Thank you...we are so glad you enjoyed your time with us!
I asked to be served with a piñata right after I finished eating and they didn’t give it to me until 20-30 minutes of waiting. It was my birthday too and I was really upset because I wanted to finish and go. But overall food was the only good thing. Service was slow.
Hello, Thank you for spending your birthday with us. We are sorry you experienced delayed times and inattentive service. The Pinata does take 20-25 minutes to properly assemble . We can imagine that would be very frustrating. Your feedback will be properly addressed. We do hope to get the opportunity to serve you again soon with a better outcome. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
The food was great and the service was so polite and nice. Food took a long time to come out but was absolutely delicious and they were very apologetic for the wait.
Katherine, thank you for spending your time with us. We are so happy you enjoyed the food and overall service.
Excellent service as always. Food is always hot and delicious
Claudia, we are so glad you enjoyed everything!
Very good service the people very friendly
I recomment good food just litle be noise but everything else is wonderful
Delia, thank you for your business!
Worth it to make a reservation because the restaurant was PACKED. We waited about 10 mins to be seated after arrival, while others without reservations were told the wait was 45-60 mins. Our server was pretty inattentive and we had to ask other wait staff for drink refills, tortillas, but the food was delicious.
Hello, We appreciate your review and apologize that your service during your visit was less than exceptional. We have provided your feedback to our teams and hope that we will have the opportunity to provide you with an improved experience in the future. Sincerely, Uncle Julio's
Our reservation was at 8pm & we arrived 15 mins early because of the size of our party. Unfortunately, we weren’t seated until 8:30 due to several large parties just sitting at their tables even after they were done paying their bills.
Hello Stacie, Thank you for spending your time with us. We regret your reservation wasn't ready on time. We appreciate your feedback and your concerns are being addressed. We look forward to serving you again with a better outcome. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Always great. Except for the very long wait. We had reservations for 7:00 was there at 6:50 and wait until 7:35 to be seated.
Hello, We are so sorry you had to wait. The restaurant follows strict guidelines and procedures that insure the restaurant is running at optimal level. We greatly appreciate your insight. Your feedback has been addressed. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again. Thank you, Uncle Julio’s
Overall great experience. More than enough good things to talk about. One negative? Chips and salsa. I commented to the waiter - are these chips or a bowl of cereal? But it was overall excellent.
Hello Jdgris, Thank you for your business. We are so glad you enjoyed your overall experience. Your chip feedback is being addressed. We look forward to serving you again soon. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Hostess and our waiter were almost!!!! Out first experience was great. My party was a little late for our rsvp and the held the table for us. Uncle Julio’s staff A+!!!!
Stephanie, thank you! We are thrilled you enjoyed everything!
The food is always excellent. We find the noise level to be too loud; this is the only thing that prevents us from going there more regularly.

It was very busy (what do you expect on a Friday night?), but the food was great and came out in a timely manner. There were also two birthday parties going on so it was kind of loud. I would go again during a less high traffic time
Thank you! We are glad you enjoyed your overall experience.
Usually very good service but was slow tonight.
Thank you for your business! We are sorry we didn't hit the mark, but we will look into the service your received. We look forward to serving you again!
Our service was amazing, thanks to Mike (I think his name was?)! He remembered our family, as we come in a lot, and our food was all correct + delicious.
Lydia, thank you! We are thrilled you enjoyed your service from Mike. We appreciate the level of service and enthusiasm he adds to the entire dining experience. We look forward to serving you again soon! All the best, Germaine R. Uncle Julio's

Delicious steak fajitas, refried beans and rice, tortillas soft and fluffy, waiter attentive and quick. Drinks delicious. Great night!
Cqhappytosay, thank you very much!
The food was great and our server was very helpful. There was a problem at the table next to ours that was very distracting. After thinking about it we should have asked to move to a different table.
Our server, Aaron, was outstanding. Attentive without being overbearing. We love the fajitas and enchiladas.
CFood, thank you! We are thrilled you enjoyed your service from Aaron. We appreciate the level of service and enthusiasm he adds to the entire dining experience. We look forward to serving you again soon! All the best, Germaine R. Uncle Julio's
