We enjoyed Uncle Julio's do much. Tables are spaced far apart. It's loud thete because of thr scoustics, but yhe main dinkng room is quite pretty and festively decorated. We all (there were six of us -- 4 adults, one teen, one child) loved our meals and the crunchy tacos were the best ever for me. Soup was quite tasty.... More

Compared to other Mexican restaurants Uncle Julio's portions are small, but the costs are high. Food is OK. Salsa is weird/different. To me it tasted like beer drippings mixed with spices. Not the regular salsa (tomato, onion, cilantro, lime) salsa I like. Place is packed. We're told wait is 30 to 40 minutes. Actually takes longer than 40 minutes to... More

On Friday's my family chooses not to cook; so we do delivery or carry out-pick up. Recently we chose Uncle Julio's as my daughter and son-in-law love Mexican food. I looked for something cool and tasty [natch with seafood] and ordered a mixed green salad with jumbo grilled shrimp and avocado and other trimmings. IT WAS SUPERB..and filling and so... More

It had been a while since I last dined at Uncle Julio's. Not sure why it has been over a year because it is always a great experience. My wife and I decided to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with two other couples and naturally chose this place. What a fun evening. I strongly suggest making reservations as this is a... More

My wife and I had such here the other day, what a nice restaurant. Very friendly staff and attentive. The tortillas served with the meal were fantastic, soft, slight bite to the teeth, and served HOT. The servings were huge... my wife had fajitas and I had the tamales. Julios brags about using the best ingredients and everything is freshly... More

Beautiful restaurant with excellent food. We had the fish tacos, taco salad & shrimp camarones. But it was quite pricey for lunch.

If you like Tex-Mex, you'll LOVE Uncle Julio's! There is not a dish on the menu that will disappoint and their margarita swirls are truly tasty. If you don't fill up on the chips and awesome salsa, you'll enjoy hearty portions at reasonable prices! If you're in a group of 4 or more people and you all love fajitas, you... More

We were staying in Fairfax and our son was at Quantico so we tried to find a place midway between our two locales. Not too much of a choice, but the best of the lot seemed to be Uncle Julios. My wife is not a fan of Tex-Mex and expected the worst. She was wrong. The staff, food and funky... More
