Uncle Julio's - Lombard/ Oakbrook
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 had an excellent server. The food was amazing. The chocolate piñata was a huge hit!
The food is terribly overpriced for Mexican food. The restaurant is slightly rundown and certainly has a feel of uncleanliness.
Disappointed and will not return.
The place was loud and the food was over seasoned, salty.
It was good as usual
Was 45 minutes before we even received our drinks and it was all downhill from there.

Fabulous service and great food! Tableside guacamole is the best!!
Always love the food here! Unfortunately there was a large party near us that was VERY LOUD so it was hard for us to talk and hear each other at our table.
We were with friends. We all love the food and of course the piñata! It’s always a good time when we come to Uncle Julios. Margaritas are also outstanding and the tamales are the best.
While the food and service were outstanding, our booth was chilly and we ate our entire meal with our winter coats on.

We were disappointed by the overall quality of the food. The chicken in the fajita was dry and over cooked and the meat well done. The tortillas were cold and the drinks seemed very weak. We have not been here in a while and don't expect to return anytime soon.

I frequent this location about once per month. Typically the service is fine, but today the service was horrible. I just hope this was a one time issue.
Great food but slow service
The food speaks for itself and is consistently amazing
Our waiter was great. Food was good, but they made a mistake by giving me onions when I ordered with no onions. They did remake them for me.

Service was great- very attentive. Food was average. Drinks ok seemed pre made. Good place
For families nice atmosphere
We had a reservation for 7:15. When I checked in exactly at that time the hostess said, “ Oh, someone already checked in for your party of 3” No, I said, we did not” She took a while on the computer, then gave us a pager without saying anything else. After 40 minutes of waiting, I went to the hostess and asked if we would be seated next after a table cleared. Observed 3 other small parties being seating. Ten minutes go by, still not seated. I went to ask again and question why these other parties are being seated when she told me we were next. She says because the table we were assigned to hasn’t cleared yet. There is clearly something wrong when you have to wait 50 minutes for a table with a reservation. The most irritating was I was not told of a delay when I checked in. Had I known, I might have dined elsewhere.
Finally we were seated, the manager came over to our request, offered apology and appetizer. Our server was great. The dining area is a little shabby. My booth seat had rips in it.
The table side guacamole was delicious and entrees just mediocre. The chocolate piñata is always a hit.
I have dined at other locations and had better experiences. It would like to see some new options on the menu. Overall, very disappointing!
Have been coming here since it opened. Always good food and drink.
We went just for the chocolate pin yada it was delicious. My six-year-old grandson was with us and he had a blast busting it up.
The food was excellent! We got our seats right away and enjoyed a nice time with friends. The environment is loud but positive.
Unfortunately I didn’t get my food until most of my party had already finished theirs and mine was still wrong.

Uncle Julio's was my choice for my birthday dinner --- that's how much I love this place! We lived in Dallas for about 25 years so having UJ close enough for our Tex Mex fix is like heaven. The frozen Margaritas cannot be beat. And the chips and salsa are the best anywhere. But then the food comes and the meal just gets better and better. Yummmmmmm
Our server, Albert, was very nice. he kept an eye on us throughout the event, and as readily available to meet our needs. The food was excellent. The only blemish was the noise; it seems the restaurant needs something to lessen it.
New Year’s Eve/ Taco Tuesday. Great service and great food!
Excellent customer service and food!
Fajitas were very tasty, the chocolate pinata was a fun to break, the fruit and churro fresh.
My family enjoyed a great New Years eve dinner together at one of our favorite restaurants. We feasted on the Plato Grande which was done to perfection. Service was wonderful on such a busy afternoon/evening.
We made a reservation on open table, and were not seated until almost 35 minutes after time slot. The restaurant host staff were unorganized and frazzled with holiday clientele.

It’s an easy place to take kids because of the loud environment!
Dessert 🍨 was fun
Drinks way priced out of line fir 3 adults 2 drinks each was 45 percent of the bill
So go but don’t drink
We had issues with our service. Waitress did not bring things we asked for, three plates of fajitas and no tortillas for too long and not following our requests. Food was amazing.
The service was quick. The floors were sticky. Food was ok

Great place for team outing. The chocolate pinata was a great way to end the night!
The taco Tuesday dinner is delicious and well worth the money. I went with my girlfriends and I will return with my husband. Delightful.
We had a group of 15 and had a great experience. The food and service was excellent, we loved the Chocolate Pinata, very fun for everyone.
Food was quite good. Lots of raw onions, though, which wasn’t exactly called out in the menu.
Drinks were solid overall, although the more expensive drink I had was made with more sour mix than the cheaper one I had that was more legit.
Our server was excellent
Food is always good but they have a table near the restroom that they kept trying to seat myself and another couple near the restroom that no one wanted to sit at and they should really consider moving it all together or realize not to seat people at when other tables are available.
