Mexican
Uncle Julio’s is a Mexican from scratch kitchen serving only the freshest ingredients. Specialties include: chicken & steak fajitas, tender filet mignon, and bacon wrapped shrimp. Other favorites include: seafood fajitas, shrimp al pastor, red snapper, or ahi tuna served with homemade corn tortillas or bibb lettuce.

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.

I had an amazing experience. The food was fantastic, staff fantastic, ambience was great. We found parking extremely easily for a Friday night. Drinks weren’t too expensive but strong. Highly recommend to any person visiting or living in the area. Best Mexican food in the DMV hands down.

This was the first time we got quick service. Our waiter was wonderful & attentive which was super refreshing since the last three times prior to this we’ve been here service was terrible: extremely slow, food spilled on us & drinks were never once refilled. The food was fresh & delicious each time we’ve been.

The food never disappoints but as a former waitress, I am a stickler for good service. Our waiter was Jordan and he was very snarky and a bit slow. He made several sarcastic remarks when we mentioned what picky eaters my kids are. We still tipped him well but really didn’t appreciate the lecture. He also kept forgetting to bring things and had to be asked numerous times. I don’t think we’ll go back for awhile. There are better options around with much nicer servers.

We had a reservation for 6 because that’s all you can reserve online.. needed 8 so we arrived 15 minutes early to let them know because we tried calling and no one answered. We ended up waiting for almost an hour. Finally seated. Brought drinks.. toppled a water across the table. Got chips and salsa... drinks delayed.. ordered guacamole at table... no plates... brought those.. food came which was delicious ... but no forks... service was really slow and never came back. In fairness really busy. And it’s way too loud!

Even though we made a reservation, it took over an hour to be seated. The appetizer and entrees all came out cold. Poor service and awful food. Not worth the time or price. Would have told the server the food was cold, but he was MIA. If you want your date night ruined, this is the perfect place to go!

I would recommend due to my love of Uncle Julio's but my experience this past week was poor. We had a reservation yet we still ended up waiting over 45 mins for our table which is absolutely unacceptable. You make a reservation for a reason and it ended up really starting our evening celebration off poorly as we were all annoyed and hangry because the bar staff ignored our group and didn't bring up chips and salsa as we waited which we were promised.

The food and the service were good once we were seated. However, despite having a reservation, we still had to wait for 30 minutes before getting seated. Somewhat defeats the purpose of having a reservation.

Not bad but the quality seems to have gone down. Food came out but one person was missing theirs. Took 30 minutes to get the check but it was a very busy night for them. We continue to go back but this last night we went was not our best experience.

We came here for my 7th wedding anniversary because we always have a great time but this time we did not wnjoy. I always get the honey chipotle chicken fajitas and they are amazing usually but this time there were so dry m, had no sauce plus the bacon was dry too didn’t have the chipotle sauce like it usually does. My moms enchiladas were Also cold and my Sons kids meal was Wrong but was corrected but was the last item we got even though I ordered it before so overall this was supposed to be a special occasion but we had a very bad experience
