The waitstaff is unbelievably oblivious to the needs of the customers. I've tried the restaurant 3 times to give it a fair chance. No difference

Typical Mexican food but just a little bit better! You must go more than once and try out lots of things on their menu.

The food at Uncle Julio's is decent but not much to write home about. Their selection of classic TexMex is a bit limited IMHO. They have some interesting fare on their menu but not the greatest selection of enchiladas and other classics.

The chips and salsa are good.

The service is spotty. Sometimes we have a waiter that's good, but more often then not we will get slow service and bad about things like refills and speed.

Personally I think there are better places, but i wouldn't say UJ's is bad. I'll go back, but prefer other places when I think of Mexican food.

The good thing is that normally there is no wait to get a seat. The bad thing about the restaurant is that it's loud, and there tends to be screaming obnoxious kids in there with parents who fall deaf to their own kids.

The place is setup like a big cafeteria, the food was blah, and the salsa was horrible. Never returned.

Little bit more variety than your typical rice and beans joint. The fajitas are great and the lobster tacos are good - but expensive.
