Conveniently located. Inviting environment inside. Went on Saturday and all 3 of us ordered off the brunch menu. Brunch prices were more affordable and all were super good with generous portion size. Good service. To top it off - homemade salsa and flour and corn tortillas!! The best flour tortillas I've ever had and they are complimentary.

Stopped in to see our kids and grandchildren while traveling up the east coast and wanted an enjoyable lunch at home. We picked up the Fajita Party Pack for 4 with beef and chicken and it was outstanding! Great portions and everything was delicious. Large containers of rice, bean, guacamole, salsa, cheese, and a great dipping sauce and a very... More

Enjoyed brunch with friends. A great atmosphere with a good selection of brunch, small plates, and entree items. They also offered a different take on guacamole - with bacon and pineapple. What a great combination. For margarita drinkers - they offer a variety of choices including a speciality flavor. All around a pleasant experience.

We started off with a kiwi margarita. It was a perfect drink with muddled kiwi and a lightly salted glass rim. Quite a delicious drink. The complimentary chips and salsa were nice. The salsa was diifferent. I'd nver tasted salsa with chipotle in it. It was different, not at all bad. We then ordered the tableside guac. One word.....FABULOUS!!! I... More

If you are from a region that has authentic Mexican fare, you will be disappointed in both the legitimacy of the dishes and the price. I ordered the Chili Rellenos and they were filled with a very bland cheese and way too much of it. The rice and beans had little flavor and everything was overpriced. In the Southwest, Mexican...

My husband and I had lunch here on Valentine's Day and we can't wait to eat here again and again. We had the queso with chorizo for appetizer and it was out of this world - I could have had that as my meal it was so good. Their chips and homemade salsa was also quite good. We had the... More

Thought the quac was creamy and delicious. Prices are fair. Food tastes fresh and freshly prepared. Not canned or frozen. Portions decent certainly for the price. The kids loved the nachos and their quesadillas. Nice ambience, not too noisy. Thought it was good for a chain. Would definitely go back. Our waitress was charming.

We always enjoy our experience at Uncle Julio's, and feel confident giving this at least 4 stars. The food is always excellent, and we've never had any issues with service. Consistently good.
