I went with my co-workers to lunch here twice in October. The food is very palatable, and is actually Mexican food, not Tex-Mex. Even the lunch portions are large, and the service is as fast as you would like it. I have worked in different parts of Mexico and this food is genuine.

I have over 1 million miles on motorcycles and have ridden through El Paso a dozen times. I always stop at Julio's for an authentic Mexican food fix. The Margaritas are super, the servers are excellent and the ambiance is perfect...

Good buffet breakfast 👍the waitress was extremely efficient and polite. The food was very good from the eggs with nopales to the pancakes and sausage menudo could've been better.

Eight family members and myself had a late lunch here and boy were we glad we picked this place. We had several different appetizers and each were delicious. All of the dishes we had were great, including the kids plates. Also, don't miss the cucumber margarita, they're great! David and another server provided excellent service and were very attentive.

Went there with the promise to be the best Mexican (not texmex) restaurant in El Paso. The food taste-wise was ok, I would go back and eat there again. The food it's better than any average tex-mex. They need to lift the game in service, I went last night and I'm still waiting for my tortilla soup. They close too... More

I have been eating at Julio's for over 10 years. They are consistently excellent in both quality of food and ambience. They also have the best salsa of any Mexican restaurant in town!

Been around a few years now. Located off the Gateway. Good parking. Good wait staff. Good food. Chicken enchiladas are a must. Combination plates are also a nice touch. Taco plates are numerous and a good dish. The service fell off while is was being renovated, but it is now back to par.
