An Enjoyable Lunch

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... read more

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

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.

I was impressed with the food quality on everything we tried. Probably the best chile relleno that I have ever eaten.

I've been going to Uncle Julio's for years - in Chicago and also in Texas. The food is consistently good and the Margaritas and cold and tasty. When I am craving Mexican food (more Tex-Mex than authentic Mexican cuisine), I go to Uncle Julio's.
