Uncle Julio's - Arlington
Uncle Julio’s menu also includes Tex-Mex classics such as tacos, enchiladas & tamales all with a selection of sauces made daily. Insider tip: order the tableside guacamole. It’s prepared for you at your table; if you like it spicy kick it up a notch with chopped jalapenos.
Uncle Julio’s has a vast drink selection. Try our fresh margarita of the day, made to order with fresh fruit. If you prefer a frozen drink then the Swirl is definitely the perfect choice. The Swirl is frozen sangria & frozen margarita layered together dating back to 1987.
Cheese enchiladas were not very melted. There was a solid piece of cheese in each one. This could be improved a lot.
Uncle Julio's is always so great! Love their tortillas, warm salsa, and overall food. Splurge for the piñata! You will love it!
The food was delicious and the service was superb. As long as you are ok with a very noisy restaurant this place is great!
The only issue I had was that my Hatch Green enchiladas and my daughters shredded quesadillas were very salty. It was the shredded chicken that was used in the enchiladas and shredded quesadillas.
the food wasn't good but I had a great server. And the strawberry margarita was the worst I ever had.. Did I say I had a great server

Food and drink was excellent. The service was okay it just took a while before the waitress even acknowledge us a customers and also we never got checked on after food arrived.
Shrimp fajitas with butter sauce was delicious. Having the option of adding filet mignon instead of regular fajita meat was a nice choice.
Our waitress was outstanding. She was so busy with 5 tables including one with 12 people and we never had to wait for anything. Very impressed with her!!!
A bit of a wait to be seated even with a reservation, but the food was outstanding and would come back again.
Only negative was with reservations. We were not seated until 30 mins after our reservation time. Food and drinks were great.
Great food (consistently). Service was terrific. I will always go back-
Make reservations!! This place always has a wait, and if you have 5 people or more we’ve been turned way for having “too big of a party” because they are so crowded and there have reservations or smaller parties.
We made reservations this time and were sat within 5-10 minutes! Food was great! Service was great!! And, we got a free chocolate piñata as part of their rewards program.
It was amazing we got table side guacamole beef enchiladas and the chocolate piñata everything was fabulous. We will be going back
Too loud, too bright, too crowded - people could not get around us and our table.
The servicing quality is always top level I always recommend friends and family to go there your Sunday brunch is a great, It is a great place do you have get-togethers for company parties online reservation has always worked for me
Good service good food and good atmosphere what else can you ask for??
Uncle Julio’s is a place to enjoy dinner, have a celebration, or just to go grab a drink. Food is tasty as well as beverages. Open Table made it super easy to reserve a table and I was surprised when it was ready on time. Especially on New Years Eve!
I took my out of town family to Uncle Julio's for Taco Tuesday. Everyone enjoyed it. The service was amazing. The food was great. The Pinata was impressive for everyone, kids and adults!
Great food! We always split the honey chipotle fajitas. They are amazing! Our waiter was fantastic and stayed on top of his tables, even though it was super busy! We only waited about 3 minutes with our reservation, even with it being super busy and a long wait so I will continue to use open table for reservations!
Natalie was awesome. She was very patient and attentive.
Jayden was a wonderful waitress. She was very attentive to our table. With the restaurant being VERY crowded since it was Christmas Eve, you would have thought we were her only table. It was an awesome meal and evening.
Service started slow. 5 minutes to take drink order. In fairness the server did approach the table about 2 minutes after being seated and said he would be with us in a minute. Server took drink order and appetizer order. Tried to give the server entree order but he wanted to wait until appetizers arrived. Chips and salsa were then brought. Had to ask for drinks as they were forgotten. Table side guacamole was made with un ripe avacados and was lacking salt. Entrees took a long time to arrive. Juanitas platter and shrimp tacos were very good. After entrees were finished we waited a long time to have plates removed and to receive check. I suspect our server was new and believe he was trying his best. He was very nice, however not proficient in his duties.
Christmas Eve with family. Antonio, our server was awesome.
Very nice and pleasant atmosphere! the waiter was very fast and friendly as well. They also have a great manager!
Enchiladas were just corn tortillas warmed up rolled and topped with cheese, no flavor

Very good food, it was quick to get in with open table
The food was good and our server was doing his best but they need more help. We didn’t get water or silverware until we asked a couple of times. We were served table side guacamole without silverware or plates until we asked. No water or drinks at this time either. Where some restaurants have additional staff to support the waiter by filling water glasses, etc. it appears that this one doesn’t and our waiter was extremely busy. Lots of good restaurants and competition in this area so Uncle Julio’s needs to do better.
The food was authentic and delicious as always. Our server was very attentive. I was even able to get a cucumber margarita which is not on the menu.
the food is always good. The Service was awesome. I would recommend Uncle Julio's to everyone that wasn't good food with a great atmosphere.
We came for our daughter's birthday. Thank heavens we made reservations because even at 5:15 it was packed. Other than the noise level, it was a lot of fun.
Our server was excellent but the room was rather cold up next to the door and windows
lots of kids and families seated around us so noise was rather loud
It was our server’s first day and he did superb!
Very good food, very good service, good ambiance.
Good waitress, her name was Leti, she’s good!!!
Always love Uncle Julio’s. This location in Arlington is the best. Not sure what they do differently, but the food and service is always top notch. A consistent favorite on our TexMex rotation.
Had a great meal with a great server! Loved the chocolate pinata.
Worst experience I ever had. After waiting for a table passed the time reservation I ended up sitting at the bar. My family ordered, I ordered fish tacos and asked for flour tortillas instead. Once my food arrived the tacos were corn. I asked the server if my tortillas were corn and she touched my taco with her fingers and said yes and then said “oh sorry for touching it with my hands”. I was so disgusted. I asked someone to remake it and said no it would take to long. I was so disappointed in the service.
