“Wow.. What a great shrimp dish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

4 of us ordered.. Mine was the BEST... 6 blue shrimp that was grilled to perfection .. It had cranberry chipolte sauce over.. Doesnt sound like a good combination but it was really good. Others had the Diablo, Coconut and Garlic. All were served with fresh al dente veg's and rice. Service was perfect.. Margaritas were overflowing!

I have been coming to Don Julios for about 1.5 years and the food is always fantastic. Especially the Brunch.
This place is beautiful and very clean. I recommend this place to everyone.

“what a delightful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Unbelievable breakfast brunch in a lovely setting with an outstanding musician. Wow!
The selection of hot and cold items was so outstanding for the price ($10). It was amazing service, food, atmosphere, and entertainment. Had to return for the second day as I never even wanted to leave the day before. Even the coffee was great! Also, bought some of Antonios CD's because he was just over the top. Loved his flute, guitar, harp etc. music. Have never received such friendly and kind service at a buffet in my life. The server treated us like royalty. Although the food was not set up immediately when they opened, it was worth the short wait. We will always come here a number of times when we take our annual trip to Puerto Penasco.

“Great Sunday Brunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

They serve a very good Brunch at Don Julio with an assortment of selections for around 10 bucks a person. There are a dozen Mexican dishes to choose from, as well as the usual bacon, sausage and fruit. The posole (soup) was excellent, and the tortillas delicious. There is also an omelete bar. Service is lacking, as we had to ask for everything we needed as far as water, drinks and napkins, so that could be improved, but it's an all you can eat brunch, so there was plenty of food. They had an entertainer there on Sunday when we went. He was good, and had a very good selection of music. The place is clean and well kept with a nice decor.

“Great breakfast spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

We stopped here for breakfast yesterday morning after the original place we were headed to was closed on Wednesdays. The restaurant is super clean and had a wonderful decor. They had a very extensive menu and the staff was excellent answering questions, etc. The prices were great for the quality of food and size of portions. Our entire bill for the four of us was under $40. That included two coffees, four delicious freshly squeezed orange juices and our meals. My husband ordered pancakes and bacon and the pancakes were the largest I have ever seen (4 of them). My sons both got omelets which were huge and included fresh toast, potatoes and beans (you are in Mexico people). I ordered the classic breakfast which had eggs, toast, choice of meat (i got 4 slices of smoked bacon), potatoes and beans. My 12 yr. old said his omelet was the best he ever had. He ordered the shrimp and red sauce omelet. He loved it! We looked at the dinner menu and will definitely go for dinner while we are here. The dinner menu was very extensive as well. They do have breakfast buffets on Saturdays and Sundays.
