Uncle Julio's - Fairfax Corner
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.
For reservations, please allow up to 15 minutes for us to prepare your table.
Usually very good service but was slow tonight.
Our service was amazing, thanks to Mike (I think his name was?)! He remembered our family, as we come in a lot, and our food was all correct + delicious.
Everything was excellent. I suggest making reservations.
Nice evening, but extremely crowded, and VERY loud!
Great server. Good fun. A very nice evening.
Awesome food, great staff! definitely a restaurant that you can’t forget because it’s delicious!
Delicious steak fajitas, refried beans and rice, tortillas soft and fluffy, waiter attentive and quick. Drinks delicious. Great night!
The food was great and our server was very helpful. There was a problem at the table next to ours that was very distracting. After thinking about it we should have asked to move to a different table.
Our server, Aaron, was outstanding. Attentive without being overbearing. We love the fajitas and enchiladas.
Good food, fast service
I was very impressed we had not come before because I was scared of the wait with a toddler but We were able to get sat really fast and I was really impressed with service and food we will definitely be back
Wonderful service and great food as always!
Margaritas and fajitas platter is my go to.
Good food but pricey. Awesome margaritas. Table enjoyed three different types. Highly recommend the spicy one!
Great food and the dessert chocolate ball was amazing
The service from the manger, host, food server and service manger was unprofessional. Not eating here again after being a long term customer. The waiter however was great.
Very loud noise level.. At times, I had to scream to my friend to be heard.
Wonderful experience, as usual! The chocolate piñata was amazing!
I got only 4 tortillas for a shared fajitas It didn't seem like enough. Service was good, and the restaurant was loud.
My husband ordered the Carnitas. And was disappointed with the pork. As it wasn't pulled pork in a nice sauce. Rather it was dried out hunks of pork. When this was mentioned to the waiter he conveyed that it wasn't his problem. He went on to say that he just serves the food, he doesn't cook it. His attitude was aloof and somewhat dismissive. He did offer to get the manager, but at that point we just wanted to pay the bill and leave. Not sure if we'll go back there.
The entrees were excellent. We especially chose this restaurant because of the pinata dessert. Two of our grandchildren had a ball. We've had both food and drink that we have enjoyed.
The food was FRESH! The only issue is that the tables are too close together. I LOVE the table side guacamole option!!! That is a must if you have not tried it. 💕
It took forever for the food, and when it arrived, 3 of us ordered fajitas and the server didn't bring tortillas, so we asked for them and 7 minutes later when I got up and found a manager he was bringing them to the table. The food was cold by that time.
The music and other conversations were so loud you had to yell to hear one another. My husband even commented on the way home, why do we go there? The last 4 times have been less than stellar and it's not the most economical place to go.
Great food as usual, but today the salsa was a little raw and watery
Excellent meal with promopt ad courteous service
The food was great, but the service wasn't what I was expecting. My coworker raved about this place and I was ecstatic about coming for a whole week. Only to get there and my food didn't come out as expected. The manager was helpful in trying to rectify the situation.
It's way too loud in there to eat and have a conversation without shouting unless you're eating outside. Also, and this isn't Julio's fault necessarily, but people need to control their kids. They shouldn't be allowed to run around the dining area where they can get hurt or cause an accident. Food is great but the past few times the atmosphere has not been great.
The waiter was excellent but the food, not so much
Our waiter was outstanding and the food was amazing. We’ll be back!
Only complaint SERVICE. I really shouldn't have to ask my waiter 4 times for water to the point I ended up asking another waitress for water and got it immediately.
Birthday, the piañata was amazing ;) we love it
Overpriced low quality food. Servers are too busy to care.
I took my mom out for dinner during the holidays. Mike was our waiter, great guy. We had margaritas and the shrimp tacos and seafood enchiladas, all were delicious. Drinks were tasty and the food was served promptly and hot to the table. At meals end, Mike wrapped up our leftovers and put together a bag of chips and container of salsa as well. We were in and out in (40) minutes. Good time.
I love Uncle Julio's for comfort food. I crave it. I love the cheese enchiladas. I also love the fresh tortillas. It is hearty.
Awful service and food. We had reservations and still waited. Order time for food was worse.
Uncle Julio’s food is great, but the restaurant is noisy, cold, and crowded. The new payment system left much to be desired as we had to wait 10 minutes for a receipt.
Our server was awesome! Super nice, accommodating, and friendly. The ambiance is great for a fun evening catching up with friends.
Unable to find our Open Table reservation, despite showing our confirmation. Was told not to worry they could seat us anyway. With their electronic check system we were charged someone else’s check. When brought to their attention we were shown a net check instead of reversing the charge and charging the correct amount.
Uncle Julio's is a great casual atmosphere that has authentic Mexican food. Great place to bring friends, family etc.
