“Pricey Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Although the food is very good, I think it is overpriced for Mexican fare. You can barely hold a conversation as it is extremely noisy and the service is just average. I've been there twice with friends and they all agreed, it's not really worth the trip. Outdoor seating is a little cramped and inside there is very little to absorb the noise. It's festive if you are looking for a place to party but for a decent level of conversation - skip it. It's more hype than anything else.

Uncle Julio's has great mexican food, and the atmosphere in Mizner Park is first-class. Great spot for dinner in Boca Raton!

“Restaurant looks good - the food is not!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We are sorry to say that Uncle Julio's in Boca Raton is one of the worst Mexican
restaurants ever. The Salsa was watery and we returned the Guacamole we ordered-
(appy - one small ice cream scoop for 5.95- not worth it) Enchiladas were below average
and the lettuce and tomatoes on the plate was full of water (sitting too long-not fresh).
Our server was nice (not his fault that the food was not good). Stay away - you can get
better value and food elsewhere.

“THIS PLACE IS OVERRATED”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Had dinner there with a group of friends and the food was just blah. It could have been better and the service sucked. they really need to tighten up on that. Food request was not carried out correctly, the wrong order was brought to the table. Asked for utensils they never came etc. I dont think that i will revisit this place. No service for the price!!

“Food could be more authentic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The ambience is very nice located in Boca Raton's Mizner Park, however the food wasn't authentic Mexican.
