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.
Our waiter was excellent. The guacamole was excellent. The taco Tuesday food was fair. The noise was terribly loud!!!!!!

The food has just become too damn spicy. I couldn’t eat my dinner because it was burning my mouth.
Best place to celebrate a birthday especially when you order their piñata!
Family dinner out
Waiter not very experienced. Didn’t know menu well. Talked us out of choices. Asked for things to not be included in my salad yet they still were. He didn’t know the menu very well. When my taco salad arrived I asked him what was so spicy in it and he had no idea and named three things which were totally wrong that didn’t make it spicy.

Our waitress was nothing special, but our food, and my blueberry mojito, were great!!
The assistant manager had a horrible way of saying things. He almost seemed he was mad about something. He just didn’t care about anything. We wanted a table in one room and he said oh sorry we gave it to another table. Anyway we can change ? He said no. Do you wanna sit here or not? I’ve never been treated so harsh at any restaurant. They weren’t even that busy.
He would interrupt and wouldn’t let us speak. He was mean to the employees and had a horrible attitude overall. He needs to be re trained as an assistant manager.

Food and drinks are always good. Pace is a bit “frantic” on Friday evening. Even with a reservation we waited about 10 minutes. Luckily we found a place in the bar and ordered a drink while we waited.
Very nice atmosphere and the food was amazing. We ordered the chicken and steak fajitas. The chicken was so tender and steak was delicious.
The best food and customer service ever! I truly enjoyed myself!
The food is not authentic atall

Food was quite disappointing. Cheese on enchiladas had consistency and taste of cheese wiz. Salad was fresh but bland tasting. Guacamole was very bland as well. Used to like this chain but it appears to be trying to appeal to mass market palate and is no longer worth visiting. Disappointed and won’t return.

Excellent customer service 👍, the chocolate penatia is a awesome surprise you can give to your loved ones on their birthday.
Good food and service.
Our server was fantastic - attentive to detail, comfort and needs of our table. He made it 5 stars.
Parking was atrocious. We were seated promptly. Service was attentive and the kitchen was speedy. We were done in less than an hour.
Friendly And quick service. Food was perfect.
Awesome. Delicious. Great service. Happy hour drinks.
The food was not good. The food presentation was horrible and the taste. The waiter was nice and polite . he did a very good job. I would not recommend this restaurant to any one.

Nice restaurants conveniently located in old Orchard mall suffers from skimpy portion sizes lack of flavoring and rushed and in attentive service appears not to have any bus boys which makes the servers job all the more difficult and the service all the more lacking

My daughter wanted to have the chocolate piñata for her birthday. I made reservations. We were seated within 5 min. The server Kyle was excellent! Checked on the 10 of us often and made sure everyone had everything. The problem is the food was too spicy. The fish tacos couldn’t be eaten. Too many onions in the fajitas and pieces of meat are too large to make a fajita. The churros in the piñata were like a rock and barely any to eat. My daughter still had fun but I like the food at other Mexican restaurants better. It was expensive too.
Food was very good, very noisy. Service was good. We will return.
Menu has good selection. Wine list is very limited. Good service and relaxed no rush dining experience.
the food was mediocre and the waitress wasn’t on top
of her service.

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
The food is always delicious! Service is exceptional at the Skokie location. The portions did get a little smaller for the same price but still delicious!
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
