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.

Everything went really well, food was great and our server Jeremy was awesome.
The only thing that did not turn out right was when we ordered the Taco Bar, instead of bringing us the round lazy Susan, the food was brought in a square one which was too big for the round table we were sitting at. Although, our server did apologize for the rather large Taco Bar server, we were a bit surprised that this had Happened at all since we were one of the first ones seated, and that the restaurant had run out of the round lazy Susans.
The food was delicious as always, but I feel it is rather pricey for what you are getting. I asked for salt in the rum if my margarita glass and it looked like they just laid down one side of the glass in salt. There wasn’t even any near the rim. Also, the music is nice to create ambiance, but it was rather difficult to hear people in my same party over it.
The server was super attentive to our table and always asking if we needed anything else. The food arrived fast and nicely presented.
Food was good service good a bit slow due to being busy. Music too loud!
Great food and service
Food is delicious! Love the Cozumel Shrimp Tacos. Little spice and a great combinations of flavors. Always my favorite dish. Love the margaritas also. Server was great! Very attentive to our needs.
We went for my dads birthday. Service and food was great!
Good food and good service. Nothing over the top. But the piñata dessert is pretty cool.
Service was great, Food was good. Drinks were just ok.
Food was great, service was great but the noise level was out of control. It was hard to hear any conversation at our own table

We went to Uncle Julio’s for my mom’s birthday today. It was better than expected. Food was amazing. I had some type of combination platter with tamales and a chicken taco. The chicken was seasoned well. Although I think the sauces that was poured over it could have been spicy but it did have good flavor.
Always a good experience. A little nosiy but it was a Friday.
Our server was great--very attentive without hovering! Food and margaritas were fantastic. The restaurant was very crowded, as is usual for a Friday night. We went early (5 p.m.) so we could get to the movies on time and I'm so glad we made our reservation through OpenTable. We were seated right away, while people coming in after us (who didn't have reservations) were told there was a long wait. The only complaint is it is SO LOUD! With every table occupied, it's bound to be.
Fun birthday dinner with friends!
I had chicken enchiladas which were tasty!! The service was a little slow considering there weren’t many people there.
Hate sitting up front as it is so loud you can’t have conversation. We sat in booth towards back and it was so much better.
Uncle Julio's is a great place to eat. We had Cozumel shrimp tacos and it was delicious. Margaritas are pretty darn good also. Server was very attentive to our needs. Was very crowded and we still received great service. Would definitely recommend this place.
Great service from our server GIOVANNI. He was attentive, guided us through the menu and helped us celebrate our daughter’s 12th birthday with the chocolate piñata. Taco Tuesday is a great deal as well!
Terrible. Horrible service and horrible management. We had previously never had issues and loved this establishment. However, tonight was a different story. My husband was told he could not swap out certain meats and they simply could not make the dish he requested (a simple swap of meat within a dish). Something he had done many times at our visits prior. Management came over and explained it is because they didn’t have buttons in the system to make this possible. The waitress then came back and said it could be done but for an up charge. Okay? So why wasn’t this option given initially prior to asking the chef and then the manager who apparently said it was impossible the first go-around. Just a very unnecessarily-so irritating situation. We have never had such an unaccommodating experience for such a simple request. Absolutely ridiculous. We will not be returning to this location ever again.

Great menu and very gracious service! The food is always very tasty.
Friendly staff and good food. The chocolate piñata was awesome. Definitely will be back.
Very average food and waitstaff. Nothing awful to report but nothing outstanding either. Salsa was bland and the house margarita had too much mix and little if any tequila all else was decent. All in all an OK meal.

Good food quick service
We were seated in a booth and there was not much room between the seat and the booth table. I'm not that big and it was tight for me. Food and drink was good, a little on the pricey side but probably in line with the area.
The food was cold and the service was hard to find most of the time. I thought the location in Naperville was better

Our waiter was very accommodating. The food was delicious and the chocolate pinata was a fun desert.
Our family had a nice time. Definitely go there again.
The food was great, the service was Excellent, everyone in the group said they will come back again!
We ordered the table side guacamole and it was terrible, the avacados were not ripe and it had no flavor. We get it each time we come and this is the first time this happened :(.
Everything was amazing more than I expected! Wil surely be going back
Uncle Julio's is always a family favorite! This is the best Tex Mex in the Chicago area for sure and probably the world, I just haven't been everywhere to confirm. Just wish it was a bit quieter so we didn't have to scream our conversation. Love those chips and salsa!
Birthday dinner- servers were great, attentive. Seating was good for large party.
The food is fabulous. Always a fun place to eat and great service too
Awesome experience and delicious food. My mom really enjoyed her birthday celebration.
Always enjoy Uncle Julio's! Food was terrific as always and the drinks were great. Only complaint would be too many tables crammed together in the middle area-we ordered tableside quac and he couldn't even get near our table, had to stand around the corner of a pillar.
Loud and crowded on a Saturday night....but food was good.
The Food is Delicious. The Service was Excellent. The Value for the Portion Size is not on Par. The Prices are going up on the Menu as the Portions on the Plate are getting Smaller, including the Rice and Beans. This is and has been a concern with Family and Friends that Dine here and I hope this would be re-evaluated and the adjustments are made.
Great food excellent service!
Great quick service. Chips were awesome and the tortillas were so good! Definitely coming back!
Family get together. Always enjoy the food. Great tableside guacamole. Hospitable manager. Exceptional service from Molly!
Hello Mike, Thank you for sharing your experience. Kudos to Molly! We are so happy you had a great time. That means so much to us. We look forward to serving you again soon. All the best, Uncle Julio’s
Family get together - the food and service was very good but the NOISE level is very high - it’s not a good place to go with a larger group unless you don’t mind yelling at each other. Also the pricing is on the higher end but not unreasonable - we still have a good time.
