Uncle Julio’s is a Mexican from scratch kitchen serving only the freshest ingredients. Specialties include: chicken & steak fajitas, tender filet mignon, and bacon wrapped shrimp. Other favorites include: seafood fajitas, shrimp al pastor, red snapper, or ahi tuna served with homemade corn tortillas or bibb lettuce.

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 fresh 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.

For reservations, please allow up to 15 minutes for us to prepare your table.

Food was great as always. Our server this time around wasn't very good at all. Maybe it just wasn't her day. We had to ask for everything, refills, more chips, can we order now, etc.? She didn't have many tables that we could see.

Uncle Julio's is always terrific. The food is outstanding and there are lots of fun drink options. It is great for a loud, fun, party, but definitely not a place to go if you are looking for quiet conversation.

Service was poor. Took us forever to get drinks. Guacamole was sub par. You couldn't even taste the lime in it.

In short, the hostess, Jasmine, was less than friendly and rudely unaccommodating. She was dishonest about the availability of the table; not only could we see the table but another host standing behind her had already confirmed the availability and the expression showed on his face when he heard her response. The service we adequate but very slow as often it is when we dine here. We will be looking for a new Mexican staple.

We have been to Uncle Julio's several times and only go on nights when it's nice to dine outside. The music in the restaurant is much too loud to have a conversation but better outdoors.

Overall a nice chain restaurant to go to with kids. One Loudoun overall had a nice ambience. We had made a reservation and got there earlier than expected but the hosts clearly could not figure out how to seat us prior - even when tables became free. So, if you do get the early then put yourself on the list under a different name!

We were just there this past Saturday night. We got lucky and had a table outside which was really good since the weather was so nice. Food was great, service also. Fajita's with lobster, Enchiladas and more.

Uncle Julio’s has totally reliable food and value. We went there for dinner because we had a coupon for a free chocolate piñata. Our dinners were very good but the piñata was amazing. Dark chocolate, fresh fruit, crispy donut like pastries, caramel sauce, whipped cream and more. We LOVE Uncle Julio’s!!

Great food, we love Uncle Julios! For some reason, the margaritas and sangria were not as good as at the Reston location - they were syrupy and too sweet here this night. However, we had great fajitas and this is a fun/casual place with a good vibe. It won't disappoint!

Great food and service. Loved that they seated us right away, when we showed up for our reservation, even though they had walk-ups waiting. Food is consistently good here. Service is getting better with every visit.

Been eating at Uncle Julio's since the early 1990's and it never disappoints. My cousin was in from Florida and has never eaten here so I thought it would be a treat. Also, my 8-year-old daughter has been begging for us to get the chocolate pinata, but we've never had enough people. This time we did, and it was amazing. Got the tableside guacamole which was amazing. The food for everyone at the table was great. Because it was a Friday night, reservations are a MUST.

While the food was good, our server was very not attentive. She never came to check on us after our meal was delivered. In fact, we finished our entire meal before we ever saw her again. I wanted another drink and got it after my meal was entirely done. She disappeared for long periods of time and was only serving 2 tables. Ours a party of 4 and another that was a party of 6. The restaurant was not at capacity and there were plenty of others servers whose attention we could not get to even find our server to come and assist us. Not pleased and we wont be returning.

The food and service were very good but the air conditioning wasn't functioning properly. This was one of the hottest days of the year, and I was fanning myself with a birthday card. I selected birthday as the special occasion when I made the reservation but I'm not sure what the point of that was. There was nothing done at the restaurant at all to mark the occasion.

Met my family for a lunch date. Our first time at Uncle Julio's and was impressed with their FRESH food along with having the Kitchen in full view of the dining area. Also notice a very nice Bar area with out door dining as well. Highly recommend to any size or any group to Enjoy a Wonderful fresh meal.

Long wait despite reservation via OpenTable. The place was not very busy for a Saturday evening, but the room was uncomfortably hot. Tepid water w/ little or no ice throughout the meal (were they having trouble with their refrigeration on a hot day?). Food was meh.... standard tex-mex comparable to pretty much any low end Tex-Mex restaurant, but more expensive than competitors.

We usually love Uncle Julio's but our experience on Saturday was bad. It took them 15 minutes to greet us at our table and get our drink order. Service was very slow that night. My husband asked for extra tortillas and a drink and they forgot to bring it until after the bill. My husband loves the food but after Saturday's experience I don't want to go back.
