The guacamole is good. Customer service at bar and regular dining is a little lax. Not a good alcohol selection. Alot of premixed slushy drinks but not real a real bar selection for beers or mixed drinks. Nice atmosphere. Food is tolerable but honestly guapos chain is more authentic mexican taste. Salsa is bland, no real favor just smoky tomato... More

We haven't been here in about a year, so we decided it was time to come back. They really do have some AMAZING margaritas! The basic margarita is made with fresh juice and is very tasty, but very low in alcohol and somewhat expensive considering there's not much in them, but the taste is what makes me want to deal...

Been there twice! Once great, once the service sucked! You could say they forgot about us! Food was good, and salsa was really good, it was just the service being hit or miss... I think we will give them another try and go best out of three!!!

I heard of this place from colleagues. They raved about it especially their margaritas. I don't drink so I can't really say anything about it. Our waiter seemed good. Upbeat and friendly. After we got our chips (complementary tortilla chips and salsa dip) our waiter is nowhere to be found when we needed him. Not sure if he has other... More

The overall atmosphere of the restaurant is good. The service is great. The food is average. The chicken seems so processed.

The food is excellent, the fire place great and the outdoor dining area is really cool. They make a fantastic sangria/Margarita swirl that really hits the spot. Can't go wrong with a dining visit here.

Our first time at Uncle Julio's and we were pleased with the food and the service. Our waiter Wilmer was very attentive, courteous and friendly. He answered our questions about the different dinners and the spiciness. The food was quite plentiful and tasty. It is rather loud so not some place you would want to go and have a conversation....

Uncle Julio's Grand Café offers great drinks and fine food. the staff is very friendly and bends over backwards to ensure you enjoy your dining experience. Happy Hour during the week is best time to go to enjoy the generous discounts on very tasteful combination of Margarita and Sangria frozen concoction. The chips are thin and delicious. The food is...

Took an hr for my food to arrive. Food was free but it was awkward to watch 8 other guys eat in front of me. When they were done, they had to wait another 25 min for there checks. Food was good but i would go again just cause of the service.
