Wish they had one in AZ.

This is a very good mexican restaurant and I have been in many. Starting with the made in house chips with salsa to the sangria margarita everyone in our party had nothing but great things to say about the food they ordered.

Very good food. Salsa has a smoky, chipotle flavor served warm. Entrees have been very good. Casual + atmosphere.

We've eaten here a few times. It's good for families with small children (always lots of them here). It's large & noisy. The margaritas aren't bad. Food is the type you would expect in a place this large. Ok, but not extraordinary. The fact that there's no place to park, other than resorting to the valet, is a bit pretentious... More

If you are spending a day shopping on North Avenue in Chicago, take a break at Uncle Julio's. Really good Mexican food- fajitas, table side prepared guacamole and carnita tacos are all delicious. Really good service, great prices and chips n salsa hot n fresh. Valet parking too.

Wow! LOOK at the reviews, I'm glad I'm not the only one. Uncle Julie's is NOT what it used to be. Went in yesterday with my family. Service is so slow, and you have to ask for everything. Rounds, appetizers, dinner, napkins, and utensils. Versus, hi would you like an appetizer, I have to stop my server. Also, drinks for... More

If it hadn't been for a nail in my tire, I would not have known about Uncle Julio's. The staff at the nearby Toyota dealership recommended the restaurant because it was going to be awhile before my car was ready. Uncle Julio's is spacious and includes a large dining area along with large bar. As expected, the decor gave the... More

We tried several new items, starting with Swirl frozen cocktail. Marguarita and Sangria swirled together. Great start for a summertime lunch! Steak fahjita with rice and beans was delicious. One amazing factor in this restaurant is the appeal of the food on the plate. Beautiful colors and fresh ingredients = wonderful package. Enjoyed sopapillas for desert. The issue was that... More

I went to Uncle Julio's on a Sunday afternoon and had their wonderful Cobb salad. I was a little disappointed at the attentivness of the staff as I sat for about 15 minutes with an empty water glass.
