Service wasn’t good. Food server was rude, totally looking down as if we were a burden. I get it that it was a busy night, Valentines day but u got to extra courteous on such occasions.

Was a bit disappointed- chips and salsa is always good there. Was surprised at how expensive it’s gotten. $16 for 3 tacos, beans and rice? No cheese or sour cream or guacamole...

Flour tortillas arrived 5 minutes after sizzling fajita plate arrived. Had to wait while fellow diners enjoyed the meal. Sizzle was gone by the time the tortilla arrived. Nearby door kept getting by opened by staff and our table and those nearby us kept getting blasted with cold winter air.

Our appetizers came with/after our meal. There was confusion about whether we ordered it??? The food was great overall, but the salmon was dry. I spoke with the manager, he was great and compensated us for it. I’d go back, but wouldn’t get the salmon. Tacos and enchiladas were enjoyed!

In the middle of a flu epidemic, no soap in soap dispensers in men’s room. No functioning paper towel dispensers in the ladies’ room. Wet rolls of paper towels on either end of the sink. What was I really drying my hands with? Poorly made tableside guacamole. Fajitas- including tortillas just didn’t taste as good as they usually do. C‘ mon- it’s a rainy Sunday, mid-afternoon and there is time for details to be focused on. The manager appeared only to be checking up on the servers and not the patrons. Why do we keep going back?!?!?!

Everything was good except that our food came so fast we didn't have time to even drink our drinks. I suppose some would appreciate the quickness but I prefer to enjoy the meal when it's paced properly.

Noise level was ridiculous. Could not hear tablemates nor server well at all. Didn't help that server was also soft-spoken despite requests to speak more loudly.

Food was hit or miss. Skirt steak fajitas, mango margarita, queso, and salsa were great. Enchiladas and tamales were average at best.

As usual, the food is tasty , well prepared and comes out quickly. The kitchen knows what it's doing.

As usual,.the service is mediocre at best. We regularly get left for long stretches of time, have requested items forgotten about, piles of plates left on the table, and listless servers. It's consistent enough that we've had different guests on different occasions observe the same thing. I don't know if it's the company culture or the difficulty in finding qualified personnel, but it definitely detracts from our experience. The food is the saving grace of this restaurant.

Uncle Julios is in a prime location near shopping and directly across from the movie theater. The atmosphere was awesome perfect place for a New Years dinner celebration. Our waiter Edwardo provided excellent service, he was very attentiv even though the restaurant was packed. I would recommend Uncle Julios I you just want to relax and unwind or celebrate with family and friends.

Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with friends and family here. Food was great and servings were good enough for sharing! Place was packed so it was loud to have conversations. We enjoyed the tableside “-321 Margarita “! Overall we had a great time:)

Overall, the food quality and speed were excellent for the price point. Our waiter was attentive and courteous, the food arrived as ordered for everyone. The only issue was the terrible front desk support - they lost our reservation, we booked via the app again, and had to wait another 20 minutes. There was no concern at all about the lost reservation (“I guess it happens”) from the front desk or manager on duty. Will eat here again.
