Uncle Julio's - Skokie
Also available are Tex-Mex classics such as tacos, enchiladas & tamales all with a selection of sauces made daily. Insider tip: order the tableside guacamole. 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 the perfect choice. The Swirl is frozen sangria & frozen margarita layered together- a classic since 1987.
Enjoyed cocktails, appetizers, food and desserts.
Great service !
I specifically chose this location and restaurant for their brunch menu. When we arrived location, the server informed us that they have not served that menu in over a year. I was disappointed and maybe someone should remove that from the website or place a disclaimer on the page for that location stating that they do not serve brunch. Again, we chose this location for the brunch menu.

Great Family restaurant especially for my grandchildren. The look on their faces when the chocolate pinata came out was pure joy.
Great birthday experience
Stan was our waiter and he was fantastic! The food came hot and it was exactly how we ordered it!
The taco bar was great. Our server was very attentive and checked on us regularly. I dine there often and have never had a bad experience.
Food was good, our server was great. Knowledgeable about vegan options. The only bad part was we booked a time on Open Table for 7:15 (booked it at 7pm) n we had to wait for a table to open up. If that time slot was not available, that time slot should have been removed so we wouldn’t have the option to book it.

Great food & service. Fajitas are awesome!
Nyren is awesome. She is down to earth and always make sure the people she serves are comfortable and satisfied. She makes you feel like family. Daniel was great as well. Food was good and Guacamole was fresh and tasty.
Great food. Great service. Nice atmosphere.
A wonderful night. Celebrating two birthdays and we were competed a dessert. Will be back
The guac is delish! Very fresh, very chunky. Highly recommend it! Unfortunately, we can't comment on other food or ambiance - after waiting over an hour for entrees, we finally had to scrape our plates into to-go boxes to get to our show in time. They comped the meal, which we thought was very decent, but one wonders why they even bothered to take our reservation - made 3 weeks earlier! - if they didn't plan to have enuf staff to man their huge restaurant! Probably best to save this joint for a couple of post-mall margaritas & chips!

We were sat down at a table in the corner and completely ignored. No busboy or waiter ever came. After 10-15 minutes we just left, very disappointing

Good service. Decent chain mex food.
We love the chocolate piñata for birthday celebrations. Such a neat (and different) way to eat a birthday dessert :) The carnitas tacos, queso, table side guacamole and steak fajitas are our favorite. AND THE CHIPS!!!! They are seriously addicting. Soooooooo thin, crispy and YUMMY!!!
We ordered chicken enchiladas but got cheese. We were also originally seated next to the cleaning cart although there were several other open tables. We asked to be moved and were reseated, but the host was not very gracious about the reseating.
The food and drinks are pretty good. I thought the experience would have been more relaxing if the server wasn’t so focused on upselling everything we ordered. It was clear that he just wanted our bill as high as possible
Our waiter, Eric was very nice and made wonderful suggestions. We totally enjoyed our meal and great service.
Hello Anna, Thank you for sharing your experience. Kudos to Eric! 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
This is a very family oriented restaurant but there is no changing table for babies in the women’s bathroom- and no counter space to provide a spot for an infant

We do hope to serve you again in the future for an improved experience. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
My favorite place for fajitas and by far the BEST skinny margaritas hands down!
I like Uncle Julio’s Resturant. It’s mmm I bit pricey I think. But for a nice dinner out it’s a great place! Just don’t go before closing because we felt our waitress was rushing us. But I’d definitely go again perhaps just an earlier dinner next time.
It was my friend's birthday and Uncle Julio's is where she wanted to go. We had a great time. The service was excellent, the food was fantastic and the drinks were delicious! The habanero bacon shrimp were to die for! We will definitely be back!
Great! Piñata is the best choice!
The food was actually a lot tastier than my previous visits to this restaurant. I could really taste the honey in the pulled pork fajitas. We are outside and service was spotty. We had to ask for Diet Coke refills. Otherwise it was very good
We only ordered an appetizer, queso. It came out cold, service was pretty slow. We decided not to order anything else. Not a great time.
Hello ncpowe2, We apologize to hear that we missed the mark with your experience and the dishes served were not at the quality we would expect from our teams. We have sent this feedback to the appropriate parties who will further address within the location and coach to improve upon. We do hope to serve you again for a much improved experience. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Hostess at this location are always rude, our server kept forgetting to bring items we ordered like salsa, chips etc. my daughter’s stake tacos were actually ground beef, my friend’s enchiladas were too spicy, though before ordering she asked how spicy it was and was told not too spicy but the manager was nice enough to remake them with some white sauce less spicy than the other one, I honestly like Uncle Julio’s but this time was a whole different experience, I think they’ve grown so much now that the quality of food and customer service has gone down, not sure if we will revisit this location again but I do hope that if the restaurant reads customer reviews, they take it into consideration - especially when those are negative. Thank you.

Service was terrible!!! Took 1 hour to get our food. Said the kitchen was behind but there was no one in the restaurant.

The service and food was excellent and plan to come back
The fajitas were not as good as I remember. The skirt steak was especially chewy. There were lots of families with young children dining in there and the music was nightclub loud.
Hello AmyH, Thank you for spending your time with us and do apologize that we missed the mark with your fajitas. We are very sorry we didn't meet your expectations on this visit and your concerns are being addressed by the appropriate parties. We do hope to get the opportunity to serve you again with a much better outcome. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Took our friends for the first time. The food was good, as was the service. We have been there many times. The only complaint I have is that's it's very loud! It would be great if something could be done about that.
Amazing experience! Loved every moment of it!
Great service, food and drinks
It was fun!
Waited about 40 minutes for our food. Two of my guests said their food was not hot. I was given the wrong side dish (cheese enchiladas instead of chicken). The place was not busy. We ordered our food at about 8:20pm, got it at 9:00pm
Hello Rick, Thank you for coming in. Our goal is to provide an exceptional experience and we are very sorry we missed the mark on your visit. We appreciate and value your feedback. We do hope to get the opportunity to serve you again with a much better outcome. Thank you, Uncle Julio's
Extremely quick, attentive service! Tasty flour tortillas and salsa. The only problem is we’re pretty sure our “fajitas for two” was exactly the same meat/veg portion size as “fajitas for one.”
Hi Andrew, Thank you for your business and feedback. Our meat is weighed before it's plated - possible by cut was thicker that gave the appearance of a smaller portion? We want you to leave completely satisfied. Please let your server know and they will gladly address and correct a possible mistake. We look forward to serving you soon. Thank again, Uncle Julio's
It was a great meal. Drinks amazing. Service was good though outdoor dining you wait longer but not tonight. Things went faster. Waiter excellant, I did have a complaint. I order combination enchiladas. Not crazy about the cheese used it was a red cheddar. I have never enchiladas with red cheddar.
Hello, Thank you for dining with us. We are so glad you had a great time! We appreciate your comments and feedback to develop and improve. We hope to get the chance to serve you again soon. Thanks again, Uncle Julio's
Great taco bar Tuesday, and piñata of course
