A chain restaurant, this spacious Uncle Julio's is well suited to large parties and families and has private dining space as well; there also is an extensive outdoor patio (parking lot facing) which is mercifully shaded (it was hot today) and is equipped with both...More

The place is so beautifully decorated and so colorful. The Waiter we had was so attentive to us. We ordered the fajitas for two - WOW!!! Each ingredient was amazing by itself let alone all together. You must order the SWIRL - - frozen margarita...More

For many years our Favorite Mexican restaurant. Now not so much. Last week we were there and the ribs were dry. Rice and beans were only ok. Bacon-wrapped shrimp not succulent. Service forgetful. Sorry to see.

Complimentary nachos with 2 kinds of salsa and 2 entrees with tax and tip came to $54. Not bad, but not cheap either. The portions were a bit small. I was expecting a bed of rice, but only got a scoop. The shrimp tasted amazing,...More

Came here on a Wednesday evening - all the food was good - service was good too. Portions are pretty big. Steak fajitas was a big hit.

We had a lovely dinner here this evening with a friend. We had some delicious margaritas (the raspberry one was particularly good) and really fresh thin corn chips with a delicious smoky salsa. We ordered a sharing platter for 2-3 people which had wonderful Mexican...More

We have eaten here for several years and this was the worst experience we have ever encountered. Waitress was condescending... mix-up with the sauces. Which resulted in bringing out food with the wrong sauces on it. Manager came and then she toned down when she...More
