“Excellent tacos! Wonderful staff”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Went to Julio's twice. Loved the tacos, and the staff was super friendly and took the time to get to know our taste in beer. They made great recommendations and introduced us to a couple of Vermont craft beers we loved. Great experience.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Went here for lunch with a friend. The service was good - never had to wait too long for anything.
The food was good - nothing earth-shattering but everything was tasty. We both enjoyed our meals.
Good location in the center of Montpelier. If I could, I would give it 3.5 stars.
I'll go back again.

“Not worth the time or money”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

If there had been any sign of a manager I would have certainly complained. There was one server, one bartender, and one combination host/busser on. We ordered guacamole and asked for it with no garlic. I also order the carne asada. It came with guacamole that was so loaded with garlic as to make it inedible. Now if someone orders a starter of guacamole and asks for no garlic, shouldn't it stand to reason not to put any garlic in the guacamole on their plate?

The steak itself was one of the smallest pieces of meat I have ever been served. It came with a lot of black beans to fill up the plate.

I was served iced tea with no sugar bowl and had to finally flag down the busser to get any.

Overall it was simply not worth the time or money to go there. Don't bother.

“Typical Mexican Restaurant”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

We stop at Julios every time we are in Montpelier. The food is good Mexican(for Northern Vermont) and the prices are reasonable. Good selection of beer and drinks and the atmosphere is kind of fun, certainly casual. Frequented by locals and the young crowd. I am never disappointed.

“Very good Margaritas.”
Reviewed August 11, 2012 via mobile

Everything was good and the price fair. Housemade guacamole is always a treat and the specialty margaritas (pomegranate) was great.
