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.

Food was decent but nothing special. It did taste fresh, though. Salsa and guacamole were both really good. For the price, I expected much more.

Tables right next to exterior doors are extremely hot and not a good idea.

Also be warned, that your reservation made more than 24 hours in advanced will be given up in less than 6 minutes of the time reserved.

Food was excellent as always - had the taco bar and it was plenty of food for three. Service was not at their best on this trip - its usually better (it took some time to get our waiters attention for a drink refill). Be careful - they have a new payment system where you take care of the bill on an electronic pad tableside. The bill comes prepopulated with a 20% tip (supposedly, this can be adjusted) - this definitely rubbed me the wrong way - brought to the attention of the waiter and he didn't seem to think that was a big deal.

The enchiladas, chips, and quest were all delicious but the tacos were a bit dry. Service was super quick— we didn’t have to wait for anything. Overall a good experience and great value.

I arrived Sat. at 6:30 pm for my reservation at 7:00. I made a reservation so I would be assured of being seated. The greeter at the counter was rude. Instead of inquiring if my husband and I wanted to be seated early we were pushed aside. There were plenty of open tables and we could have easily been seated. Instead we were made to wait the full 30 min.

8 walk-ins without reservations were taken before us. It seemed like Uncle Julios did not want to work with the Open Table Reservation System. I inquired if we could be seated since there were still open tables and was told I had to wait till my guaranteed reservation. Never have I been treated so rudely. No customer service at all!

Small tables, barely room for food and drinks for four people. Loud (birthday party at tables next to us.) Food was marginal, especially given that it seemed a little expensive for Mexican. Entree was delivered with no beans, which were brought later. We've eaten there numerous times before, but this time was least enjoyable.

Food was standard Tex-Mex. Service was so-so, but considering how many people were there, was acceptable. Very noisy, difficult to communicate at your own table. Maybe go back on a different night.

It was crowded, but we made reservations in advance and got seated immediately. The server was attentive and the food was outstanding, came out quickly and to our specifications. It was loud in there, so you had to talk up a bit to hear. Ordered the Chocolate Pinata for my son's birthday and it was so fun and so delicious! Would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

The food was spicy, ten waiter was hard to understand, he rarely came to check on us and I would sit with an empty water glass for almost 10 min before he would refil it.

The online reservation feature worked well. We were seated at around 7:30, as requested. The food was good, as usual. It was Friday night and pretty busy. Food service seemed slower than usual. We had a complimentary piñata which is sinfully decadent!

Having recently moved back to the Metroplex, my family and I enjoyed my birthday at Uncle Julio's on Camp Bowie for the first time in 20 years. Always a favorite when we lived in Fort Worth, it was just as fabulous as I remembered. Hayley, was a delight and a superb server who made my birthday even more special. Simply the best Tex-Mex on planet Earth!

The noise level was such that you couldn't talk across the table. I don't know how you can fix that.
Friday was the only day we could go with the company. If I had a choice, we would have gone on a weekday
evening, not Friday night. But that was just us. The food was great, the service was incredible considering it was full. Price is about right. That you for the reservations.

Service was slow and not particularly polite, but the waiter mentioned that they were short-staffed. Food came out cold and was sent back, and shortly returned warm.

This is not usually a problem and this was the least busy I’ve ever seen the place, so we’ll call it a fluke.

Overall it still made for a pleasant dinner.

Maybe it’s just me, but I felt like the food was eh, and tasted like a basic chain restaurant. I was expecting authentic Mexican food. It also took forever for our waiter to come out, we sat at the table for a good 8 minutes before he came.

Food is good, but Julios is more into presentation than execution in some cases. Don't go if you want to talk at all! saw lots of kids birthday parties even at night! Menu selection is excellent and interesting.
