This is Tex-Mex and the best Tex-Mex is all about steak and chicken and pork ... marinated and grilled. I'm talking fajitas, carne asada, carnitas. Uncle Julio's does these very well. Its not your typical El Pancho gringo mex and the prices reflect proteins a cut above the ground beef and diced chicken staples of the cheaper mexican restaurants. I... More

Walked here while staying at a nearby hotel, and fell in love! There was a 30 minute wait at 6pm, but grabbed a beer and sat outside. Servers were all very friendly, and the food was delicious! We loved the guacamole, and they have several ingredients you can add in, like jalapeño peppers! We split the chicken fajitas, which were... More

Went here recently with family and enjoyed the entire dining experience. The service was prompt and courteous, the food was good with great options, and the drinks were delicious. They have a patio that has a great view of Peachtreee. If outside isn't your thing, indoor dining is nice. The food came out quickly and was hot. You won't be... More

My wife and I were at a local hospital just down the road from Uncle Julio's, so we went for lunch. She had quesadillas; I had what were essentially shrimp fajitas though it was called something else. My meal came with rice and beans; I chose frejoles de charra (or something like that) and cilantro rice. It was all excellent.... More

Good service, great drinks, food was average. Authentic mexican food prepared fresh. Friends had guacamole and chips, while I had the fish tacos. Food didn't wow me but was average. Server was nice and knowledgeable. Like the atmosphere, would go again but maybe try a different dish.

Uncle Julio's has very good food. The chips and salsa cannot be beat, and the food and drinks are very good. I could drink the salsa at this place. Go for the carna asada, chips, salsa and guac. You will not be disappointed.

I remember Uncle Julio's from Dallas 25 years ago. Was not memorable then, and this one in Sandy Springs is the same. The tacos al carbon were way over done, tough and chewy (to be polite). The lunch special said it came with tortilla soup. It didn't come WITH the meal...it came 20 minutes later...after we brought it to the... More

What does someone who lives four hours away do when they first arrive in Atlanta? If you are in my car, we go straight to Uncle Julios! It amazes me that they are able to consistently make some of the best Tex-Mex food. They are coming to Nashville, TN in 2017. I will be waiting at the front door!

This was the first time I have visited this well-known restaurant in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. It was a great experience and in my opinion has the best Mexican food I've had in Atlanta. The food and service were excellent. Fresh ingredients with lots of flavor. Great salsa that is home-made, along with hand-made flour tortillas. I had the... More
