We love Julio’s margaritas. We love Julio’s fajitas for two. We’ve been coming for years, this is our other go-to place in town. Clean, friendly, tasty. Easy access right off the main highway. Reasonable prices. What more could you ask?

We stopped by late (9:30) on Friday night. The parking lot was packed and we soon found out why. The food was excellent. Typical Tex-Mex with outstanding flavor. There was green and red salsa...both had great flavor. Will eat here again if in town.
