Uncle Julio’s is a Mexican from scratch kitchen serving only the freshest ingredients. Specialties include: chicken & steak fajitas, tender filet mignon, and bacon wrapped shrimp. Other favorites include: seafood fajitas, shrimp al pastor, red snapper, or ahi tuna served with homemade corn tortillas or bibb lettuce.

Uncle Julio’s menu also includes Tex-Mex classics such as tacos, enchiladas & tamales all with a selection of sauces made daily. Insider tip: order the tableside guacamole. It’s prepared for you at your table; if you like it spicy kick it up a notch with fresh chopped jalapenos.

Uncle Julio’s has a vast drink selection. Try our fresh margarita of the day, made to order with fresh fruit. If you prefer a frozen drink then the Swirl is definitely the perfect choice. The Swirl is frozen sangria & frozen margarita layered together dating back to 1987.

Bad/extremely slow service. Had reservations for 6pm, they sat us early which was great. Was there for 2.5 hours for 2 kids meals, chicken quesadillas and fish tacos. We did pre-order the dessert so we weren’t waiting on that.

The rice was dry and salty with no flavor. Beans had no cilantro or cooked onions and very salty. I ate Pechuga and supposedly the chicken was to be very soft and juicy. I found it to be chewy and not flavorful or juicy. We had 2 waitors, like actual waiters when there should have been 1 waiter and a helper. The waiters took so long to get the ticket to us and we found out that one of them was arguing with the other about taking customers away from him. What the hell was that all about. I was not impressed at all. It was very expensive for the food we ordered. But because my son and daughter in law got married and they decided to celebrate there I just paid the 300.00 for 8 adults and 2 kids. So I don't think I'll be back to Uncle Julios.

The food, service, drinks, and atmosphere are always the best. They have done away with the call ahead, put yourself in the line feature, but the online reservation option was very easy to use.

I made reservation for 14 so 14 could sit together. They set up two tables of 7 behind each other. That’s not how it works. When I reserve 14 I should get 14. Plus they were 15 min late setting us as well. Service was so bad we went to the bar and got drinks ourselves. Food was only good thing about the whole night.

We had called in advance to make a reservation for a large group. Manager would not place us on our table. She wanted us to sit split apart. If sitting large groups was an issue I would have greatly appreciated being told in advance. We noticed there were other large groups that were already seated. She was unprofessional when approaching us at all times. Recommendation for the upper management is to change management because she ruined the night to where people even left so we could be seated.

The service was great but the food was horrible. We didn’t wait long to get our food but when it came out the 2 orders of fajitas we ordered and the shrimp tacos where very cold. The waitress offered to take it back and get us a new ones, which we did. I can understand if it’s one entree but all of them being cold is bad. Hope they better their food soon.

The service was not good the waiter wasn’t friendly and didn’t come check on us. I had a party of 15 but they said they could only fit a party of 12 although my guest came late they said they would only sit us when all 15arrived and would only wait 10mins when most restaurants consider half of the party to sit the table. The drinks were ok but too expensive not to get a little buzz. Menu also sucks and needs to specify what items are serviced cold. When a guest complained about the food/service, waiter went to kitchen manager; who was very combative and defensive and not the actual restaurant manager

The place is a little inconvenient due to its location at a very busy intersection. Overall though love this place.

Last night was the worst experience ever. It took over an hour to get our order The restaurant manager didn't really seem to care and told the table next to us that they may want to go somewhere else! I think we need to find another favorite restaurant when we visit Dallas.
