Good Food, Great Service

This high energy restaurant serves fresh Mexican food with guacamole made table side. The server was fun and friendly. The bar was limited and out of several basic liquors. Overall, this was a great experience!

I visited this restaurant nearly 16 years ago and it's better today than ever before. Great watermelon margaritas, super chips and salsa, and outstanding fajitas.

This is HANDS DOWN the BEST Mexican food I have ever had!! We were heading into Atlanta when we drove past the building that quickly caught my attention - looks like a cantina, with bright colors. We made it a note to check it out on our way back...best decision we had! The margaritas were delicious, the food was to... More

If you choose this restaurant, don't choose it by the other Uncle Julio's you may have been to. The food is served not made to order. The servers are not pleasant and they make you feel as though it is an effort to get you something other than your meal. The chicken fajitas I got were not hot when served.... More

They have complimentary parking (plus in my book. Atlanta makes you pay for parking everywhere!). The restaurant was well decorated, with almost a romantic lighting. The food was a little expensive, but worth every penny. Our server was very friendly and sweet. The food was so flavorful (and there was a lot of food on your plate, enough for two... More

Went to Uncle Julio for a quick dinner with my wife before a meeting and had to leave after 15 minutes waiting. The place had plenty of open tables but everyone seemed uninterested in taking care of us. We were standing by the hostess station for a while; we were directed to a table on the worst possible place. We... More

Unbelievable experience at UJ's. Had found this place and really liked the cleanliness and the tacos...and LOVED the salsa! They use fresh ingredients and roast the vegetables used in the salsa...it's very good and I've even told others about the food. Sadly, though, will not return...nor will my friends to whom I've recommended UJ's. I was shocked by the horrible... More

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 they just started or were doing it... 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.
