This place has some better than average fried food and some decent sides too. It looks a bit like a hole in the wall - I'm sure its a re-purposed restaurant of some sort. Still the food is excellent for a decent price.

Julio's has some of the best fried fish and fried chicken in Athens. Their dine-in diners are generous portions and quite tasty -- but would be greatly enhanced with some better decor. There are tables and chairs to sit and eat but I wouldn't refer to it as a dining experience. While I would give a food a good solid... More

I love their fish...can hardly get enough along with the coleslaw and beans. Their tartar sauce is unique and so tasty...I add Louisiana Hot Sauce to mine...loads of it. The chicken is great too, their biscuits awesome and all their other sides. Their portions are very generous too. The price is right and service very prompt. My hankering stops @Julio's!

Julio's seems to be a family-run fast-food fried chicken enterprise, which was touching and amusing on my visit. I picked up a family dinner. Dark meat is considerably cheaper than mixed, which is perfect, frankly. Ten pieces of dark-meat chicken and two enormous sides runs $16, so about what you might pay at a Popeye's or similar. The entire staff... More

I've eaten here for years. Chicken is pretty good, chicken strips are also good. But the rolls are what keep me coming back. My favorite menu item is the fish and chicken dinner. Comes with catfish and chicken strips. The catfish, for a chicken place, is pretty good.

Great chicken, baked or fried. Fish good too. Biscuits are out of this world especially with honey! If you re looking for veggies, they re here too. Atmosphere not so good.

Picked up food for the family, found a fried insect (big misquito) in our fries. Took it to the owner and showed him, he grabbed it and immediately threw it away and went to get me another order of fries. I told him not to bother just give me a refund. The chicken is good and most of the workers... More

This is a small little place, but they have the best fried chicken livers and gizzards around. Fairly priced.
