The interior of this place could easily pass for the restaurant version of a Mexican quilt. It is that bright and colorful. Traditional Mexico-inspired decor adorns the walls adding even more color. The open dining room is casual and the friendly waitstaff is attentive. Traditional Tex-Mex fare, such as fajitas, enchiladas and burritos are excellent. Other specialties on the menu include broiled quail and a few seafood entrees. Save room for dessertthe flan is excellent here.
What a delightful outing - people having a great time, terrific food, great service...what more could you ask? A place I would recommend for family and friends, very festive.
A little loud, maybe, so ask for the patio porch dinning.
Be careful, though, the serving are large!
We went to this restaurant to meet up with friends. Walking up to the restaurant I noticed that the music was rather loud out on the cantina patio area. I thought that maybe this was due to being outside. Little did I know that this annoyingly loud music would be louder in the dining area.
We had a 40 minute wait at 7:15 on a Friday night. The waitress in the cantina was very helpful and served us quickly. She checked on us a few times and was able to refill our drinks in a timely manner.
Once we were called to our table, we had an extremely hard time hearing the waiter. He had to practically yell out the specials for us to understand him.
We each had one of the specials. They were very tasty and I would recommend them if anyone were to go. However, I don't think we will be returning until they learn to lower the volume in the dining area so that one can carry on a conversation at a comfortable level.
Drink prices are ridiculous and way too small; $7 for a margurita! The room was extremely hot (not one fan installed to at least move what cold air there was), noisy, and the tables are too small. We have used Julios for out of town family visits in the past because the food is generally good, but the prices, crowds, and noise is just not worth it anymore. El Fenix is a better value all around.
Love the: Rib, Chicken, Beef and Shrimp fajitas combo plater for 3. Splendid and to die for!
Cadillac Plater (Lobster and beef or chicken)....OH man!
It does not get any better then that! Great drinks and deserts too.
A customer for 18 years!
The food was very good. It's not the traditional mexican food I grew up with. It is the best we have found since we have moved here in March 2006. Lived in Calif and Az where you will find the best mexican food.
I would say this would be a place to try.
Our waiter was the best, tentative yet never interfered in our conversations by asking us how everything was every few min. We really enjoyed our meals.
It has continually amazed me that this marvelous venue has not attracted more attention. I've lived here for 20 years, and have yet to find a more enjoyable dining experience. Best food for reasonable fees and service for which you won't be ashamed to pay a generous gratuity. Even when it's busy (which is ~usually~), it's worth the wait to eat at Julio's!
I must start by saying the food is awesome at Uncle Julios. I have been eating there over 13 years.
My recent trip was MOST disappointing!
How GREEDY can you get?
I took our cheerleading squad for a end of season celebration and was embarrassed and appalled at the PRICES!
Come on!!! 2.25 for a drink?? That is pure greed! Close to SEVEN dollars for queso?
I will NEVER be back NEVER!
This has always been a treat for my family and friends but I refuse to support such blatant GREED in the industry... you are good, but not that GOOD! SHAME ON YOU!!!
After living in Ft Worth for nearly 15 years, Uncle Julio's remains the best. I only eat one thing there: Beef fajitas with extra grilled onions, mexican butter (a must) etc. The salsa is the best in the world and the queso is to die for as well.
