Good food for the price.

Have eaten at this restaurant many times over the years. I rated it as very good considering the price points and the food. The beans are very unique and I personally like the Tamales. We ordered the guacamole which they made table-side...that was a first, so I don't know if it is something... read more

We used to love this place, but what used to be a great place no longer is. Confused servers, cold food and increased prices that aren't competitive in the local market.

I find most Mexican restaurants to be a clone of one another. Most of the chains have food that all tastes the same. Not true at Uncle Julio's! Everything was fresh and tasty. The chips are light (not too salty) but crisp and the salsa is amazing. I had to take some home with me. The taco's were amazing. Great... More

For the past several visits that my family has had at Uncle Julio's, the food has been consistent but the service just keeps getting worse and worse. I kept saying I would give it another try since my kids are fans but at this point, there is no way that I will go back. After I had a less than... More

UJ is a fun place to sit outside or in. The food is always consistent, restaurant to restaurant and city to city. I don't like chain restaurants much but I do trust UJ

The food was great. My waitress was beyond friendly. Service was a little slow and it wasn't a crowded evening. The waitress couldn't pronounce one item on the menu but that was ok :). Had a good time

An excellent restaurant with delicious salsa and great service. They have a nice patio for pleasant evenings. I had the shrimp and it was delicious. There was a lively business crowd there and it is obviously a local favorite. Would definitely visit again.
