We are here on a recent stay with friends. The food was delicious and so we're the margaritas! The food was typical Tex-mex, but they have Mexican butter, which added some extra flavor that was delicious. The margaritas are made in front of the table and they use nitrogen to freeze the berries. Overall this is a great restaurant, there... More

My Son and I met for a nice lunch recently. I must say I wasn't impressed with the fajita quesadillas. There was a large tortilla cut into small triangles, they were cold served on a cold plate, with cold hard cheese and only two chunks of fajita meat inside. No veggies, a blop of sour cream, a blop of rather... More

You can't go wrong with a meal at Uncle Julio's. This was our first trip to the Grapevine, TX location. Beautiful restaurant only surpassed by the excellent food and service delivered from within! After a shopping trip to Grapevine Mills Mall, we arrived at Uncle Julio's around 9:00 p.m. on Friday night. No wait. Our server was attentive and delivered... More

Love the food but pricey and the service is never great. They never seem to have enough staff. They always forget to bring stuff. Ex tortillas, soup spoon, etc.

For the prices, the food is not up to par. I had a taco salad that was $14; it was a huge pile of lettuce with a little bit of toppings. It was good, but not $14 good. My family all chose local favorites or commonly popular plates among Mexican food restaurants (chicken and waffles, taco plate, enchilada plates) and... More

We (5 adults and 2 kids) visited there on 04/15/17. This was my first time in Uncle Julio's and i now figured out what i was missing until now. We ordered Plato Grande (full rack ribs and chicken fajita combo, pic attached), which was super good, and couple more chicken and vegetable fajitas and honey chipotle salmon with couple of... More

They use 21-day aged meat that is marinated, making it the most tender and tasty fajitas ever! The rest of the menu is very good, service is not quite up to the level of the food, but servers are friendly when they finally get to you. In a great location just off the North Dallas Tollway.

Looking for good Mexican for our 24 year old son. This place was great. The portions were very large and the staff was awesome. The only thing I would caution you of is the quest - a bit oniony for our taste but still good.

I remember my first visit to UJ in Fort Worth. I thought the chicken fajitas were the most juiciest and succulent ones I had ever tasted. So, naturally was thrilled when they built one closer to my Texas home. Have noticed that this is a chain that is popping up in the different places, so assume they have gone corporate.... More
