“Weak drinks, weak service and overpriced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Came when the place first opened and it was great but it's gone straight downhill. Food lacks taste, drinks are weak at best, and for the quality it's completely overpriced. Take you money get better food and better margaritas for a fraction of the cost at a Mexican dive.

“Best Mexican food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

This is more expensive than the other Mexican restaurants in town, but you get what you pay for. Best. Beef. Fajitas. Ever. And the salsa... and the guacamole. And the tacos. Great date spot, ambience and decor is lovely. Service is consistently good, but not astoundingly stellar.

“Consistently Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Always have a great experience at Julio's. Food is prepared fresh and always big portions. I really like the idea that they make fresh tortillas. Service has always been excellent. Lots of variety...never a bad meal.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

The food here is always good - the portions are big (sometimes too big). The fresh tortillas are simply delicious. Nice place for Mexican style food.

“Expensive mexican”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Nice patio and decorum, but the food is expensive for what you get. You can get nice patio seating at the Wegman's across the street, better and cheaper food and sometimes a live local band. We wished we had gone to Wegmans after we left.
