It's always good to find comfort food when you need it, and Julio's definitely has a Mexican cuisine that satisfies the bill! I had enchiladas and was happy with my choice!

The food is pretty standard mexican food, but tastes kind of boring. They do have great margaritas though.

The chips and hot salsa are good as well as the refritos. My wife and I had the enchiladas suizas which were average. The margaritas are very good and they have a good selection.

I've been eating at Julio's off and on for the last 10 years, and the one thing you can always count on there is the absolutely delicious made-to-order guacamole. Also, you can always get a table there, even on a busy Saturday night. My husband...More

I don't like knocking a place especially when the staff is friendly and the place cute. To be fair the American cuisine is probably okay. One of our party wisely ordered a chicken version of a BLT and said it was fine and I'm told...More

Only one guy working the place and we had to wait awhile to be seated. But once at the table the service was good. Recommend the fresh made guacamole and pork street tacos. Salsa and chip were fine but not great.
