So I heard from a few people that I should try Uncle Julio's and we happen to be passing by and decided to stop. We waited 45 min for a table so we were like "it's gotta be soooo good because there are so many people here." We started off with some ceviche that was basically a pile of purple... More

came here on a quiet Monday, sat at the bar as the restaurant was reasonably busy. Waited almost 10 mins to be seen, chips were bought, then the bar tender came and asked us what we wanted to drink, but we had no drink menus so ordered a beer and house margarita. Another 10 minutes later drinks came, no water... More

Sat in the bar with my wife. Only one person apparently working the bar area. Plenty of people running around in black uniforms but only one actually working in bar. Waited forever to get a drink order in. Drinks finally arrived, asked for menus. Could see lone bar staff go over to one of two managers who were doing nothing,... More

I have always wanted to eat at Uncle Juio's. So we waited for 15 minutes to be seated. The menu has limited choices. The prices were also high. The meal was nothing fancy. In fact, we were disappointed. The food was rather bland and offered nothing special for the price we paid.

Let me start off by saying we really enjoyed the food here. The fajitas were delicious, and the in-house tortillas were also very good. My wife loved her street tacos. That all said, this was one of the weirdest experiences we have had in a place. I asked for the fajitas w/ no onions. The server stated they might not... More

First time visit with old friends and met expectations. Service was friendly if a little pushy to order dinner when we were catching up on conversation. The fajitas were very tasty and overall good value. Bottom line would go again. What more can you say?

I'm a long time fan of uncle Julio's restaurants. I find all of the locations to be somewhat hit & miss. When they are good, it will leave you craving more for years to come. However, when it is not as good, they are about average. Most locals know uncle julio's for their homemade tortillas & steak fajitas. Yes, they... More

We tried Uncle Julio's after a few people raved about how amazing it was. While waiting to be seated, a hostess told a couple that there was no wait to be seated on the patio but they declined. That hostess left and another one walked up less than a minute later; we asked to be seated on the patio and... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. We don't get it. It was so loud we couldn't hear each other, two attempts to bring us a lemonade that tasted like lemonade failed, and worst of all, the food was mediocre, at best, and overpriced! Ugh.
