Uncle Julio's - Loudoun
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.
For reservations, please allow up to 15 minutes for us to prepare your table.
Even though i waited for about an hour after my reservation to be seated, the food was good and my party had a great time.
Took the family there for the oldest Daughter's birthday at her request.
The food was great as always but the noise there on a busy night reaches the near-horrendous level.
You cannot speak across the table without raising your voice to almost yelling.
You have you repeat your order several times .. not because of any language barrier but because even standing next to you they can't hear.
Using Open table allowed us to show up on time and be seated within 5 minutes.
They were very good about getting the children’s food out first. Our waiter Seneca was very attentive. Had to wait quite a long time for our desserts to come out. We got the bill before the sopapillas!
Service was awesome. Busy night & everyone was very attentive. Food was delicious!
The service was super slow, we didn’t get water after even asking 3 times. The food is just ok nothing amazing for the price you pay.
Made our reservation online, were there on time, and despite the place being very busy, we were immediately seated, and welcomed very friendly by the general manager. Our server (Seneca) was attentive, kind, knowledgeable and never pushy. We enjoyed our food: I was not crazy about the smokey salsa (chipotle?), but that's a matter of personal preference, not quality. Everything tasted fresh and made with care. We chose the guac/queso combination for appetizer, and the beef skirt steak fajitas: simple and delicious. As for the drinks, I tried the margarita of the day: watermelon. I was a little afraid that it was going to be too sweet, but it absolutely wasn't and I really liked that one too. All in all a very good experience for the type of restaurant that this is, and we will come back!
Quality restaurant. Very attentive staff. My only complaint is that I did not get my appetizer until our main entrée was served.
Food was decent but as usual the noise level was so high you couldn't hear the server, much less the person sitting next to you.
Did not get receipt by email as requested
The chips that was served was not fried well. Waitress did not seem to know how to resolve the issue. Other food was good. Service could be improved
The customer service was poor
Loved the chocolate piñata for my birthday celebration!!!
it's loud but the food is so good! I miss the ribs that they have in Reston
Good tequila and good tacos.... what more could you want?
Food yummy ... service outstanding ... good times!
Margarita was too sweet, home made guacamole was really good, tamales had no taste, the Juanita’s platter was average. The chocolate piñata had only strawberries and churros despite being sold as full of berries and pineapple. We had to wait 15 minutes even though we had a reservation via open table.
Waiter was awesome
Great spor to celebrate my Dad’s 93rd birthday!! He loved breaking into the chocolate lovers piñata!! And we loved helping him eat it!
Overall, we had a great dining experience. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the table-side guacamole, the enchiladas, and the chocolate piñata.
Our reserved table was not ready, and then we waited an additional 30 minutes for a waiter to greet us. The menus given to us by the hostess smelled terrible like they had been washed with a dirty rag. Overall a bad experience at Uncle Julios, which we usually love.
Always pretty good - but asked for more sour cream, and they charged me a dollar?
The food was ‘just ok’. It is a standard, town center, large Mexican place (positive) with sub par service.
Our server Pepe was awesome and let us practice Spanish.
This is an authentic eating establishment
Our waitress was great! She was very helpful and attentive
We arrived on time for our reservation and had to wait about 15 minutes. Service was only okay. Food very good. Ambiance was about as expected, including noisy.
My “medium” steak for my fajitas was borderline raw; the rest of the food was marginal; service was marginal as well. Not up to par for uncle Julio’s, won’t return to this location.
Our tables were ready on time. I truly appreciated the outstanding service the waiters provided the evening we celebrated my daughter’s birthday. Everyone was friendly and the food was delicious! Thank you!
Uncle Julio's is always, always, the best at what they do. Great food, great drinks, almost always outstanding service. I've been coming to UJ's for as long as I remember and I'm never dissatisfied. It's our go to spot for date night, kid's birthdays, family dinner, lunch...etc. There is never a bad time to to go Uncle Julio's.
Always enjoy Margaritas and Shrimp Camerones at Uncle Julio's! Never hardly disappointed with food or service there. Food served hot and sizzling with plenty of chips and salsa.
Celebrated a birthday at Uncle Julio's. The flow of the meal was erratic. The appetizers,which included a table side guacamole, were not served at the same time. Service extremely slow. Food just okay. The music was so loud that you couldn't hear people talk at table. The kitchen kept dropping dishes and trays. I don't call this energetic. I call it plain noisy!
I’m incredibly disappointed with your menu catering to vegetarians. There are THREE items specifically geared to individuals who do not eat meat: veggie fajita quesadilla, veggie fajitas, and cheese and onion enchiladas. I ordered the combination enchiladas with the cheese/onion and asked if I could have a veggie one. Our waiter immediately said no. I mentioned there is only 3 options on the menu I don’t think a veggie enchilada would be difficult. The waiter stated he would check and let me know. He came back and stated he could. When the food was brought out, my veggie dish had a meat sauce and beans. It was taken back and a second dish 15min later was brought out- it looked fine and as I was finishing to eat my veggie enchilada I noticed a piece of chicken. I immediately stopped eating. Not long after the effects on my body was incredibly gross and uncomfortable. The manager clear up my $12 dish from the check which was fine but for the establishment to me Mexican food, and ONLY have THREE dishes catering to vegetarians. This is aggravating. I can get my correct and decent order from Taco Bell. I expect better from a chain establishment like Uncle Julio’s.
Website much more appealing. Still a good experience.
We’ve been here many times, and on our last visit the noise level was so high that we couldn’t have a conversation. The food was good in general, although two of us ordered a salad that had far too much lettuce and far too little of anything else. Mine literally had one cherry tomato cut in half on the whole plate. On the plus side, our server was delightful.
Had a very enjoyable dinner at Uncle Julio's. Usually get margaritas and the bacon wrapped grilled shrimp. Always very good!
I made an online reservation for 8:45 for a party of 6. I checked in at the front desk at 8:15 and they marked us as arrived and stated that we should be seated in about 10 minutes. At 8:45pm I went back to the check in stand and was told the table was being cleaned off and would be ready any minute. Around 9:00pm my entire party (including myself) had become very frustrated. Several other parties were complaining to the manager about the wait. I looked around and there were several clean tables with no one seated. I went back to the stand and again was told a table would be ready in just a minute and within a few seconds we were seated and were told a manager would come up to check on us since we had waited so long. The manager never made an appearance and we still are not sure how a table became available so quickly when we had waited such a long time. We are frequent customers of Uncle Julio's but this night makes me question whether my family or I will be coming back.
Took the family to Uncle Julio’s for a special event. Food was very good; service a tad slow but the restaurant was very crowded so that should be expected I guess. Overall very good.
Food was good as always. Service was slow and we had to remind our server of things we'd requested.
Our reservation was 7:30 we didn’t get seated until 8:15 our waiter was too busy flirting with his other tables then worrying about us. We waited over an hour for our food because of that. I usually eat here all the time but this time was my birthday and they didn’t satisfy me and my family what so ever.
The waitress Gladis was outstanding. Great food and customer service.
We will be back again.
