Some of the best Mexican food in Dallas! I do not know of anything not good on the menu. WE have tried it all and held many events here and even used the catering service. Cannot go wrong with this restaurant!

I love uncle Julio but today they serve me meat that was raw and all I got was an apology and a discount, that's not acceptable when you get a plate of raw meat

Awesome food at Uncle Julio's. Ordered the Plato Grande. This dish was good for 2 to 3 people. It included chicken, ribs, shrimp, and all the trimmings. Our server James did a great job. The atmosphere was nice with great Latino music. I highly recommend the dish for large groups worth the money. Will return.

I love Uncle Julio's but today the food was horrible what a disappointment! Serve was good but the tortilla soup was cold and it had no taste.. thought I was in a fast food place. Last time I go there.

If you haven't tried Uncle Julios for lunch or dinner you are missing out! Brunch on Saturday and Sunday is great too!

This is a crowded restaurant surrounded by many other crowded restaurants! We were given a choice to sit outside immediately or wait 90 minutes for inside dining. We saw lots of empty tables inside but VERY congested at the hostess stand. VERY noisy inside. We opted to sit outside. They wre accomodating of our party of 7, letting us choose... More

Dinned here with a group of co-workers. The food was good. My waiter helped me select a dish to my liking. The dip was great.

If you like medium rare steak their fajitas are perfect for you! They are a little thicker cut pieces of steak, great flavor, very tender and we love to order them medium rare. Their shrimp camarones are wonderful as well as their chicken enchiladas and fresh guacamole! Really good swirls!

I took my wife here for our 18th wedding anniversary. The food was really tasty. The real treat was the chocolate piñata. The service was quite literally the worst I have ever experienced. My wife's fajitas arrived but the waitress took about 15 minutes to get tortillas to the table. The average drink refill time was about 5 minutes. When... More
