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.

Had a reservation but made to wait 15 minutes to be seated.
Too loud and busy.
Waiter forgot to bring wine and beer orders for a long time and had to be reminded.
Shrimp fajitas were undercooked and had to be sent back to kitchen.

Was a wonderful birthday dinner. We had the fajitas with shrimp and steak. Upgraded to the filet and it was amazing!! Had the chocolate piñata and so much fun sharing that with friends. Very good value and good service overall. Love making the reservations on open table to save the line out front!! Thank you. OT. :-)

The food was very good. The service was very disappointing. We took my brother there for his birthday. We had raved about Uncle Julios. Needless to say we were embarrassed. We spent $120 for a bad experience.

Two people in our party had eaten here before and had a great experience. During this visit three of our meals were not very good and the waiter was not efficient. We constantly had to ask for refills and then he didn't even remove the empty glasses. Mainly, the food was not prepared as well as in the past.

Get food and service were excellent. There was no wait for our reservations. Our waitress was prompt without being over bearing or hovering. Menu offered different items than your typical Mexican cuisine. Portions were more than enough to ensure you were full and still bring home a goody bag.

My girlfriend and I are huge Uncle Julio’s fans; this is our go to spot for dinner out and the food is always what we asked for. However we received the worst service we have ever gotten this time. After we asked for a minute to look over the menu it turned into 20 minutes. During which I made eye contact and tried to get the attention of the waiter at least 5 times with no success. Finally we got our order in, we ate, all was well until he brought us the electronic check. Like I said we’ve been to Uncle Julio’s many times, so we know how the system works. And typically the staff will ask that, and if you say yes they politely leave and say thank you have a good night. Well our server didn’t ask and guided us all the way to the tip screen. At this point a switch flipped in his attitude and he suddenly wanted to give us service, was friendly, asked us questions, he even noticed I had a NHL credit card and chatted with me about hockey... not the waiter we had been experiencing that night at all. All while doing this he was standing over my shoulder looking at me and then the check and back and forth essentially pressuring me to give him the standard 20% or more. Probably because he knew he messed up and neglected us that night and knew we weren’t planning on tipping him 20%. He would not leave until I pushed the green button for 20% and as soon as I did he left. My girlfriend and I were livid and still are honestly. He had zero waiter etiquette and this was a strategic and scummy/sleazy move on his part. It pains me to write poorly about Uncle Julio’s but seriously this is not ok, especially if the wait staff is doing this to more than just us.

Uncle Julio’s has great fajitas-not over cooked and with good flavor. Great guacamole, and I like the charro beans. It’s my favorite Mexican restaurant, hands-down. Only complaint I have is the tables are not big enough for all the food that comes out!

Uncle Julio’s has very good food, especially the beef dishes. Fresh made tortillas, and excellent enchiladas. Service is good and they are normally very busy. Margaritas are excellent, but like the food, expensive.
Both the queso and salsa are excellent as well.

Make a reservation, you will not be sorry! The service was quick to begin with and our food came out fast but by the time we were ready to order dessert our waitress was no where to be found. The food was excellent but it's so loud inside that it's difficult to carry on a conversation or even hear your server.

I ordered the quesadillas that I have had from another location. They did not cook them or include the peppers inside. It was only cheese and meat and wasn’t cooked on the griddle to give the tortilla some crisp. My server was not attentive at all didn’t offer to replace my food and gave me the lunch portion when I did not ask for that. He paid more attention to every other table but ours. Location was nice but probably wouldn’t come back.

we had reservations for 2:00.. After getting stuck at the rental car counter for an hour, I was over an hour late for my reservation, but they were nice enough to hold a spot for us. That made my mother's day (which was going down hill at the time) much better. The Shrimp Brochette was excellent as usual, but the beef Enchiladas were not good. The restaurant has changed the recipe to include a cheese sauce over the enchiladas instead of the previous meat sauce...that made all the difference in the taste. It was a bit disappointing, but I still enjoyed the meal. Overall, I had a good dinner with good friends & family. Mother's day was wonderful!!

Surprislt my food gas so-so. I had chicken enchiladas with chicken and green hatch chili’s. They were ok, crunchy corn tortilla (cooked too long?) rice was stiff. Beans were yummy! My margarita was awesome!
Staff great, This visit just wasn’t as amazing as I remember their food being a year ago. Food was a disappointment. It can and should be better for the price.

Nothing better than sitting out on the veranda sipping some cool drinks and enjoying tableside guacamole made specifically how you like it. Chips are fresh, the salsa is not ridiculously spicy, just great. The fajitas (chicken and vegetable) are amazing! We love coming here with the family, we know we will always be pleased.
