When visiting El Paso on business, the six of us decided to visit this place. I got there early and sat at the bar while I waited. They had a nice selection of drinks and immediatly offered me one. When the bar tender brought my drink she offered chips and salsa while I waited on the rest of my group.... More

Business lunch took us to Julios. Food was tremendous in a town with lots of good Mexican restaurants. So good in fact we went back for dinner. Service was excellent. They have a thin beef steak so big it covers the entire platter. Wonderful.

This was a visit based on recommendations from a local resident in a class I was taking in El Paso. Several in the class raved about this place. Their opinion was validated. Great food. Great service. Even had live music. Would highly recommend.

Passing through El Paso and looking for a good meal, we stumbled upon Julio's and found it to be excellent. Highlights were the outstanding mole, good fish meals, and chips & salsa. Plus, an enjoyable environment with first-rate service.

The chimichangas are good. The green enchiladas with egg are good. Piña colada is good. The Sopaipilla rellena is good. The Jamaica drink is not good, it has an after taste. The chille relleno is not good. Customer service is lacking. You have to wait too long for the food. Overall, the place is average.

Came in on a Saturday afternoon. The atmosphere was really nice. I liked the brick walls and arched doorways. I was a little Leary at the salsa because it looked like Apple butter haha, but much to my surprise, it was extremely good!! Our server was Jorge and he was amazing. He attended to our every need and was very... More

Service is tops here. They really make a point of making you feel appreciated. The issue is, though its not a huge one, it's just why a gave this place an average. The food is average, it's alright. Nothing bad just not outstanding. The prices are reasonable but so are several other places. Look, I am just the kind of... More

For a late afternoon meal the parking lot was nearly full (Saturday). The receptionist worked to get us suitable lodging for a wheelchair so that we would not have to fight other tables. The food was very good. Did get cheese enchiladas instead of my ordered chicken! Server admitted that they punched in the wrong choice but took care of... More
