Uncle Julio's - Gaithersburg
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 love the chicken fajitas and especially their thin hot salty chips, the very best!
If sitting in the bar area, be aware of the constantly “up selling” servers.
Great food, atmosphere, and quick service. Overall great place! Definitely will be going back
Outstanding food and service as always. We came for brunch w a group of three families and they were super accommodating, the food was excellent, our drinks were always filled and we had an awesome time. We love our chocolate lovers piñata which was the third time we had done this with a group and it never fails to delight.
Delicious food! Love the guac and queso app and the chocolate piñata dessert is not to be missed when celebrating a special occasion.
We had out of town family visitors, so we brought them to Uncle Julio’s (as we often do). Several service mishaps occurred only to my brother (no beer glass /cold food) and then a customer bumped into a waiter and hot food was dumped on him and his brand new jacket (hanging on the chair). The dining room manager managed everything with great finesse, and made it all good. I wish I knew her name; she saved the evening for us:)
Loved our experience and the food was great!!
Great food, great service, and overall a very good experience. It can get noisy and on this visit kids were running around unchecked and no one was really managing the chaos. But nonetheless was a great experience as it consistently is.
Very good food, professional friendly service. Very nice atmosphere. I've eaten here several times. This is a very popular restaurant so it's a good idea to make reservations. It can get a bit noisy and busy. I highly recommend and look forward to going back.
Hostess couldn't have been more pleasant. Food and portion size was good. Server was attentive and excellent.
Good service but very loud !!! Food was decent but Margaritas were sub par.
Food was good and served very quickly.
Meh! The service was at first too much, then no existant. Overall the food was pretty ordinary.

We thank you for providing this feedback and have forwarded this to our teams to address. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you again for a 5-star experience in the future.

Food was really good! Good-sized servings, we couldn’t finish so we ended up taking about half of the dinners home. Good value for the price of each entree.
Service was really good and prompt. We had reservations but we were seated before our scheduled reservation.
The noise level however was kind of loud, not really good for holding relaxed conversations. Had to raise my voice the whole time to carry decent convos. But then again, it’s Saturday night dinner rush hour...
Great food and great service.
Never had to wait for any refills very attentive wait staff.
The food was very good the waiter was very friendly
Uncle Julio's is a staple for me and my boys. The food is great and comes out very quickly. It is great that you can now make reservations via Open Table, as the wait times used to be very long when they didn't take reservations.
I wouldn't call the noise level "energetic" but rather "annoying." We were celebrating our anniversary and we couldn't have a conversation because of the noise. Everything else was exceptional.
Always delicious authentic Tex-Mex food. Everyone at the table loved what they got. My favorite is the cheese and onion enchiladas. Service was unusually slow, but since it was a birthday celebration with family, we had extra time to chat.
Excellent food. Brought a friend, never been there before. She absolutely loved the food.
My grandchildren love to go to Uncle Julio’s and this experience did not disappoint. The reservation I had made was honored promptly, the waitress did a fabulous job of meeting my grandkids requests, the food was served in a Times manner, and everyone left happy!
We had great customer service. The chocolate piñata is great dessert for birthdays. My only disappointment was the freshly made guacamole. It was not the best because it seemed like unripped avocados were used.
Hi GMVB, We are sorry to hear this and will make sure to address this with our staff. We appreciate you letting us know. Have a great day, Uncle Julio’s
Great place for a birthday gathering! and the Piñata was awesome!
Food is great and staff is amazing. Shout out to Andrea the manager who made our dining experience special every time we go to this location.
The inside noise was deafening. I could not hear someone immediately next to me speaking. The restaurant desperately needs to put in some sound attenuating materials. Otherwise you will have a miserable dining experience.
Great time. Food was great. My daughter enjoyed her 17th Birthday.
very nice place, good ambient, good food . I really like this place take mom for her birthday and she likes i tsoecially the Pinata!!
Great food. Everything prepared correctly and served quickly!
The food is always amazing . This is one of my husband and I’s favorite restaurants. But the biggest issue we have EVERYTIME is we sit down and it takes so long to get water and utensils. They give you chips and salsa right away and take your order quickly but there have been many times that we get our food and utensils and water right after .. so the service is average but the food is amazing!

No complaints at all. I love to go to the bar area which is quick and have TVs.
Everything was awesome! Our server was very attentive and informed about the menu! We will def be going back
We love uncle Julio! Is my daughter favorite restaurant to celebrate her birthday! Staff is friendly, food is great as always. We love the piñata ❤️
It was so loud there, that we had to yell to talk to each. Did not like that atmosphere and will not be back, tables to crowded together, had to move from the booth as the table as the table was so close to the seat, one of the party members could not fit.

We loved the food and the service was excellent. However, I think that $46 plus tip, is too high for a breakfast for two people.
Consistently good food. Dining room is a bit loud when crowded. Very friendly staff.
chicken fajitas tasted weird not the normal taste and for having a reservation i still had to wait 10-15min after my reservation tome.

One of my favorite places to go. 90% of the time service is very attentive and professional although the last 2 times I went we did experience issues with incompetent servers. Good thing the food makes up for it!
