The margaritas were amazing but not worth the money for the glass we had. We har to pay for parking (10.00) which was crazy for... read more

Tableside guac is a must!! SO good. I enjoyed the fajitas for two. Ahh. Maze. Ing. The staff was outstanding and very accommodating for our large group. To keep our little ones entertained the staff brought out tortilla dough for the kids to play with while we waited for our food. Definitely will return. SO GOOD!

They have several locations in Chicago. We just visited their newest location in the suburb of Naperville. Nice, fun decor...but the place was huge. I don't like eating in the equivalent of a football field. Waiters were super attentive, margaritas good ($9) and menu was expansive...almost too much so. Got there in time to order off the lunch menu which... More

I have visited this restaurant several times and each time it was a pleasant experience, The place itself is spacious and nicely decorated. I order the steak each time and it is delicious, their margaritas are amazing and the chips they serve are light and crispy. They have valet parking and it is conveniently located in an area with many... More

I love this place, service is great, drinks are great and food is great. This place can get busy so get ready for a long wait in a busy weekend, you always wait at the bar while enjoying a refreshing drink. They do offer valet parking which is the way to go unless you cab or take the red line... More

The table-side guacamole was very good. The Pineapple Margaritas were spectacular!! A little on the high end price for the food however well worth it! Service was great! The dish I ordered was a Red Snapper in Mango Habanero Sauce it was really, really good but it was not as spicy as I would of thought. I would definitely recommend... More

We went here with family and loved the fresh chips and salsa and huge variety of entrees. My husband loved his combination plate. I liked the BBQ chicken quesadilla, but liked it even more doused with its accompanying salsa and guacamole. A fun place to dine with great service.

I've been to Uncle Julio's many, many times over the years with friends and family. Here's my take on the place: Pros: - great, GREAT tasting Mexican food - good service - best tortilla chips ever--light and crispy (just don't put them in a paper bag--you'll see just how greasy they really are) - good for couples, family, groups of...

We had a Uber driver tell us that Uncle Julio was his favorite place. We went the following ngiht and had a great dinner and a few margaritas. It was a $6.00 Uber ride from Downtown and was well worth it.

Mexican is not my favorite, but when along as part of the group. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of meats used in the dishes. You will really enjoy if you are looking for good Mexican food
