Uncle Julio's - Naperville
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.

All good but the good was just average tasting at best.
It was fine for our group of 14
Great food and service! The tortilla machine was broken do that was disappointing but they had great homemade corn tortillas instead. I recommend the filet mignon fajitas and the guacamole and queso appetizer.
Tortilla maker broke, could not get tortillas for fajita we ordered. Service was slow, taste to value was poor, only good think was desert
Went for a Team Post-Holiday Celebration Lunch. Handled large group well and table was ready when we arrived.
Came out to celebrate 2 of our kids birthdays and had the “Taco Tuesday” deal, there were a total of ten of us and our server was not very attentive and seemed annoyed that we ordered that taco bar instead of separate meals. The deal was a great price and it tasted pretty good!
Went there for my daughters birthday. The chicken was very good.
But we all really enjoyed the chocolate piñata with the pineapple and strawberry’s inside. It was a fun and yummy treat.
The guacamole made aT the table was very good with nice large pieces of the avocado.
Had made reservations for 8pm and got there 2 hours early (our even we were at before hand didn’t take a long time to experience). The hostess said that was fine she would put our name at the top of the wait list and not have to wait 2 hours. Got seated within 5 minutes.
Great food and drinks with a nice atmosphere! Will be back often.
We go to this location regularly, likely dined there 16 times over 2019. Our first visit in 2020 was a huge departure from all of our previous visits. Staff was slow, we waited for a server to come to our table for about 15 minutes - when busy I understand this but it was not busy and just seemed like the staff was not coordinating properly. Once our server arrived, they were fine. The worst part of this experience was the quality of the food and drinks. We had grown accustomed to this being very consistent and high quality. The tortillas were always warm, fresh and fluffy and the margaritas were always great. On this visit, there were no signs of any tortilla making and when we got the tortillas, they were very low quality. Cold and sticking together, seemed like they were frozen and recently defrosted. On top of that, at a table where four people all had fajita dishes they brought us 5 tortillas total with our food. I always order the El Jefe margarita which comes in a shaker and will fill the glass two times - this time it filled the glass one time and about 1/4 the second pour. I really hope this was a fluke and just an off night for the site, but if this becomes the new normal we will be looking for a new place to go.

After Christmas Family dinner
Soooo much better than the last time we dine there. The service was actually professional and personable. Our server was very good. We will be back.
Started out suboptimal from the beginning, as it took several minutes for anyone at the hostess stand to acknowledge us. In the meantime, the line was forming out the door. Guacamole was supposed to be spicy, but was incredibly bland. Some in our party were vegan, and options are very limited, and the food was overall average.
New Year’s Eve
Very crowded very good service the table side guacamole was excellent
3 meals in our party came with cold tortillas like right out of the fridge cold which really sucked because I was really looking forward to enjoying this meal
They did take care of the 3 meals in question but I would have rather enjoyed it

Went early on New Year's Eve. Waiter was really nice and attentive. It happened to be Taco Tuesday as well so we ordered the taco bar which we thought was excellent. They bring all the elements to your table in a lazy susan and you make your own tacos from that. They were delicious and for $10 a person you can't beat that. I ordered margarita and it was quite strong so if that's what you're looking for, there it is. We will be going back.
Food mediocre. Lacking a bit of flavor.

We have been going several times over the years and quality is not what it used to be. The server was miserable and food was fair. Probably won’t go back
Smaller quantity but expensive. Very limited vegetarian options.

We went for our daughter’s birthday. Everything was great! The server was attentive and helpful with my father who has dietary issues. The drinks, food and dessert were all amazing!
We enjoy this place at least once a month an was happy so far, every time the service was ok but not so good, this time service was just horrible unfortunately. Waitress and server guy were like in rush not listening and throwing food on the table and disappearing, we waited 25 min yo get their attention to order desert,
I’m GF and DF and I didn’t like the manager’s response when I asked about my options, she rolled her eyes and throw a laugh like I’m joking to eat there🙁 it was a birthday celebration for my friend and she didn’t enjoy as much as she would. I have to say the manager listened to us very kindly and also cover the desert as apology, that was really nice ! Thank you!

Uncle Julio’s is a great family restaurant where you can go and grab a great dinner with great conversation. They are great about customizing some foods to be exactly what you want. Loved this visit! Was unfortunate we could not stay for their awesome dessert! Thanks to our server and it was great how Olga did a tremendous job tending to our requests. Loved the table side way to pay! Which more restaurants caught up to where this restaurant is on bills and payments at restaurants! Thanks again Uncle Julio’s team and Olga for a great experience!!!
Had a great time, Great food, our server was awesome very attentive to our needs. We will come back again. The drinks were tasty!
Went for our office Christmas lunch. I must say it was a great place to unwind and enjoy some down time. Great food and drinks.
Perfect - fast service, tasty entrees
My son loved his birthday dinner there, and the chocolate piñata is always a “hit!”
It was not wheelchair friendly. Difficult to maneuver through the restaurant
Everything was perfect! It was my family's first time there and see were celebrating two birthdays on our visit. Other than the pinata desert I ordered it would have been nice to have a little birthday song or the chance to.
It was our first time there and we really enjoyed it. The food was great and the piñata was so delicious but too big for 2 adults and 2 little kids.
Waiter was absolutely great! Food came very fast and hot!!
Good food. Server rushed us to order when we were trying to visit. Kind of annoying
We went there for a get together. Our waiter was very good and food was great too. Margaritas were yummy.
I ordered the pork tamale and cheese enchilada. My cheese enchilada was not eatable. I could not cut it with a knife it was so hard.

We were there to celebrate our daughter and son’s birthday. Since he was turning 50 I requested acknowledgement from the staff from the front check-in and our waiter and nothing took place, but we enjoyed our dining experience with our family
We had a party of 10 to celebrate my husbands birthday. We went on a Sunday afternoon. The people who worked at Uncle Julio's were very nice. The food was delicious. My only complaint is the price of food and alcohol. We wanted a pitcher of margaritas and they only serve single serve drinks, at $12 and up each ! Of course we wanted Margaritas to celebrate my husband's birthday and quite surprised how quickly our bill added up. The food was good but $14 for guacamole? A little to high priced to become a regular outing for us.
Waitress was great. Food was delicious.
Loved the food. Absolute delicious. We had the chocolate piñata. It was wonderful.
Great service from Alex. Enjoyed his recommendations and the fun dessert.
