I've been coming here for years and just had another good experience. Servings are large and the food and service are reliable. Limited parking; use the valet.

o NOT go to Uncle Julio's on Lemmon Street in Dallas, Texas. They have a small parking lot and the valet parking is always full on Friday and Saturday nights. I parked in the part lot next door. No one at Uncle Julio's, the valet people, the greeter at the front nor the waiter, warned me that if you park... More

I recently had lunch with a large group at the Uncle Julio's on Lemmon in Dallas. The service was rather slow and the food was not like aI remembered in the past. The lunch portion of quesadillas left something to be desired. The Soup and Tacos al Carbon were good but for $11.99 rice and/or beans would have been nice.... More

We went there with a big group for dinner. We came in pretty early, 6:00. The service was terrible, the food is average at best, it was loud, and drinks were small. Otherwise, it was awesome!..... We had one waitress who seemed somewhat emo and was in too deep. She couldn't handle it. The service was so slow. We ran... More

I stay in the area quite often and this was my first visit to Uncle Julio's. The place was crawling with waiting guests; I sat at the bar. My meal was mediocre at best. The Tortilla soup was tasty but the taco salad was close to awful. Margarita was so-so. Chips ere good but salsa and almost everything else was... More

Overpriced food and one has to BEG for service. Tables are set so close together that I could not even enjoy a quiet conversation with my table. Others' conversation volume dominated ours. The tab was high and I got sick when I got home.

My husband and I visited this place during brunch hours (around 1130am) on a Sunday. Since it was rather early, there was no crowd and we were seated immediately. They are doing some renovations (after hours) to the place but it was just fine for us and not noticeable. Instead of brunch, we decided to have Tex-Mex dishes. My husband... More

The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. The only reason I deducted a star was bc the sides were pretty scant. However, everything tasted delicious! My favorite was the fresh plum margarita.

Our 2 kids and 2 adults enjoyed lunch here. Kids ordered off the children's menu. I had 2 chicken soft tacos and my husband had the fish tacos. Portions were good sized. We liked the salsa and also the homemade flour tortillas.. Prices slightly high for lunch. Our bill was $45 before tip and we only had water. Would definately... More
