Well, it's hard to find a way to stand out among the crowd of restaurants in the Grapevine/Colleyville area, but Uncle Julio's has created a wonderful attraction with its chocolate pinata's. The kids and grandkids love them. Our youngest granddaughter ran around and around the table gathering up and eating the "chips". I put a couple in my coffee. Just... More

I always enjoy Uncle Julio's. For this review, I was here for a lunch and was hungry for fajitas. Ordered off the lunch menu, asking for the skirt steak fajitas. To my surprise, the server asked how I wanted the steak cooked. Not a normal thing for fajitas, for me anyway. I asked what people normally do and he said... More

Title pretty much wraps it up- could eat the pulled chicken quesadillas everyday! Not sure what they do to the meat but it's delicious! The margaritas are pretty awesome as well. We always seem to sit in the bar and have excellent service every time

4 of us had dinner at the place while joining a conference at the Gaylord. Large size that can accommodate large groups, this place feels like it was made for families and good times.
