Ate here at the recommendation of a local resident. Enjoyed salsa, guac, and chips to warm up. Tasty chicken enchiladas with salsa verde with the usual sides. Seemed like a lot of use of the microwave in the kitchen which always makes me a bit apprehensive. Overall the food was decent and reasonably priced. This is a neighborhood restaurant and... More

Julio's was one of my stops on a recent soup crawl through Austin. The chicken and vegetable soup is delicious! Hearty and full of great chunks of chicken and vegetables. The trick is to squeeze the like in it. The line gives it an amazing flavor! Julio himself served us and he was so personable and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed... More

A great spot with a lot of character. The chicken and vegetable soup is highly recommended. Certainly more than filling and at a great price. The place is cash only.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) the cooks were visible from dining room. No one was wearing gloves grabbing food out of various containers in a filthy kitchen. They do not take credit cards but "conveniently" have an ATM which of course they are receiving the fees for that. People this CHEAP and filthy should not be able to run a restaurant.

Austin friends took me to this awesome restaurant and recommended the chicken enchiladas (which I had with the red sauce) and I loved it. A great test of any Mexican restaurant is the salsa, and this was another winner. Busy place, be willing to eat outside at peak periods.

Absolutely great little neighborhood place. Very simple - order and pay at the register when you come in. Food is simple, authentic, and great. Kind of out of the way, but in a fantastic eclectic neighborhood with a real diversity in restaurants.

We frequently walked Julio's all the time when we lived in Hyde Park, and we still make a special trip whenever we are back in town. The chicken enchiladas verdes are my favorite. The nachos are huge. The chicken is amazing. The soup works miracles. Great family run restaurant! Reasonably priced, but cash only.

We made a quick trip to the grocery across the street and needed some rotisserie chicken, the cashier suggested Julio's and I'm so glad she did! We got 2 chickens for a family of 5 and we were able to get 2 meals out of it! It was a little salty BUT SO GOOD. Falling off the bone delicious. Although... More

Great, cheap place for fast, delicious Mexican. The Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas are my favorite, and the quesadillas are also really really good.
