Saturday night you would expect to have sufficient servers to take care of Saturday's crowd. It took 20 minutes to get drinks, another 10-15 minutes to have server come back to take food orders. Food arrived in normal time and was very good. However, service made the experience unfavorable.

First time at weekend Brunch-absolutely loved the menu! There were 5 of us, we got seated quickly, we all got a different brunch item and everyone loved it. Only drawback was the woman who made our tableside guacamole looked very sour while doing it-but it tasted great. Will be back for brunch!

Once we were seated we reached our “water”. The waiter then walked away to check on other tables and probably didn’t come back until about 10-15 mins. We ordered the Guadalajara and the lunch nachos with steak. My parent also ordered two margaritas which took a while to come out also. The food took about 35+ mins to come out. Me thinking okay it’s lunch time I definitely understand. I started to notice that tables that were seated after us received their orders before we did so I began to think. So here comes our food. After looking at the fajita meat I could tell the order was wrong. I order medium well and they brought out medium rare. And the food was room temperature. So the manager comes over and states oh I will bring you another plate but it will take longer bc if the shrimp we say “no problem”. side note: before the manager came over I took a small bite of one shrimp. When the manager came back I notice he did NOT remake the food however he just put the meat back on the grill and it was still luke warm. I was so upset. This was my dads birthday and the service that we received was terrible.

Everything ran smoothly BUT your hostess was not what I expected at a high-end restaurant. She placed us in a corner, not enough light, not enough room and didn’t make any kind of eye contact with us!!! Very disappointed in her.

An employee called to confirm my 8:15 reservation 3 times that day and I let them know each time, yes same amount of people, yes we will be there. They made sure to let me know my party had to be complete before we would be seated. My entire 20 person party was there by 8:10. We did not get seated until 8:50. That is ridiculous. Our servers were phenomenal though and made sure our birthday girl was happy. The servers saved the restaurant from many complaints.

We spent Valentine’s Day here and glad we made reservations because it was packed. Food was good except the salsa with chips at the beginning tasted kind of different. Order the queso with beef instead and you won’t be disappointed. The coffee I ordered came out cold and didn’t taste fresh. Our waiter was so busy with a big section of tables but he did his best. He was very nice and amazing service from him. Overall we did enjoy the food and whole experience!!

I ordered the breakfast tacos with steak. They came out with only veggies. When the waitress came back I pointed it out to her - she was very apologetic and said that someone in back forgot to put it in the order. I didn't get my food back right away so had to sit waiting while the rest of my party ate. They brought out the corrected order. I was disappointed that there was no offer for a discount or anything for their mistake. Typically, in situations like this where they were clearly in the wrong for not making the order correctly, I would expect some type of offer to ensure the customer comes back. I would not come back due to this instance. Not impressed.

We were there for my sons 10th birthday. The place was packed so obviously very noisy and crowded. Food was still great and our waiter was friendly, attentive and eager to please. We ordered the chocolate piñata, a tradition for my son and he couldn’t wait to bust it open! A fun family outing!

We're your Favorite customers! We Love Uncle Julios! It's so Delicious!
We noticed that the salsa tasted different on Saturday. It tasted watered down or something was missing from it.
This has never happened before.
We hope that next time we go there that the salsa us back to tasting as good as it always does.
I just wanted to let you know.
We Love Uncle Julios!
Thank you!
Our waitresses did an Excellent job!

We’ve been long time customers of Uncle Julio’s and absolutely love it. Today was an exception to the rule. The fajitas weren’t marinated, were overcooked, tough, and bland. The salsa is usually my favorite but was so overwhelmingly hot and full of smoke flavor that it was not recognizable. The rice was also very pale and not the normal seasoned goodness. The place was half empty so I can’t blame the inconsistency on an overwhelmed staff. Our waiter was nice enough but very slow and kept forgetting his pad to take our order. This is our normal spot for Fajitas but we may switch to the Arlington location as they have been more consistent and service is upbeat.

Went for my wife's birthday with the full family (about 9 people). The staff was very accommodating when asked to reseat us since my dad is handicapped and cant walk too far.

Food was excellent. The free salsa wasn't too great for my taste but the queso and verde chili was delicious. Fajitas were excellent.

The dessert was just WOW! we ordered the chocolate lovers pinata. It was big enough for all 9 people to enjoy and breaking the pinata was just fun on it's own.

Would recommend this place. The staff made this place very enjoyable.

Service was very slow. We had an order for 4 of us sharing fajitas. The other two in our party had a salad and cerviche. The salad and cerviche came out after about 30 min, and it took another 15 min to get the fajitas. I asked the manager to check on our food because it was taking so long, and her never returned. When the fajitas finally arrived the server did apologize, but we never heard or saw the manager again. Will not return.

Everything was great except when my daughter arrived she was told the reservation wasn't until 7:30 I even pulled up my phone to show her it was 5 not 7:30 that didn't make me look good to my children to think that I couldn't keep track of a reservation other than that and the noise level it was fine I loved it.
