“Christmas shopping lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Always a good place for lunch. Food is consistantly good. Service quick. In the hectic schedule of Christmas gift gathering, UJ's a welcome resting spot.

“Fun for families.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The food is just average Mexican fare, but the atmosphere is fun. Kids love watching the tortilla machine. Gigantic portions; I suggest sharing entrees.

“loud and crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

The food is ok - the salsa and chips are great. The menu is limited, need a more varied combination plate option, and the service we received was lackluster. (New guy with no wait skills.) Metroplex restaurants are all too loud and this one joins the crowd. went on a weekday, got right in. Had fajitas, beef undercooked and guacamole was skimpy. The pico was old and kinda mushy. First time we ate here it was really good, this was #3. Maybe just a bad night.

“Long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We had an extremely long wait to get set. They quoted us at 45 minutes. But didn't get set for an 2 hours. they kept saying there is one person in front of you. Food was good. Will go back because the manager made amends.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

First off the flour tortillas are really good, and the Gordo platter is awesome. Really authentic mexican food, and a Ft. Worth Icon!
