Unfortunately (or fortunately) the cooks were visible from dining room. No one was wearing gloves grabbing food out of various containers in a filthy kitchen. They do not take credit cards but "conveniently" have an ATM which of course they are receiving the fees for that. People this CHEAP and filthy should not be able to run a restaurant.

Austin friends took me to this awesome restaurant and recommended the chicken enchiladas (which I had with the red sauce) and I loved it. A great test of any Mexican restaurant is the salsa, and this was another winner. Busy place, be willing to eat outside at peak periods.

Absolutely great little neighborhood place. Very simple - order and pay at the register when you come in. Food is simple, authentic, and great. Kind of out of the way, but in a fantastic eclectic neighborhood with a real diversity in restaurants.

We frequently walked Julio's all the time when we lived in Hyde Park, and we still make a special trip whenever we are back in town. The chicken enchiladas verdes are my favorite. The nachos are huge. The chicken is amazing. The soup works miracles. Great family run restaurant! Reasonably priced, but cash only.

We made a quick trip to the grocery across the street and needed some rotisserie chicken, the cashier suggested Julio's and I'm so glad she did! We got 2 chickens for a family of 5 and we were able to get 2 meals out of it! It was a little salty BUT SO GOOD. Falling off the bone delicious. Although... More

Great, cheap place for fast, delicious Mexican. The Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas are my favorite, and the quesadillas are also really really good.

Just came here for breakfast tacos to go, so I can't comment on the rest of the menu, but based on those, we definitely will return. The tacos were very full of meat and quite tasty. The hot sauce was just the right amount of spicy. Be sure to bring cash as this is a cash only restaurant.

We were looking to try someplace new for Mexican food last night. Having lived in Austin for 20 yrs. one would think we had tried every possible place by now, but we were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon Julio's! I have been to every other restaurant on their block but somehow managed to miss Julio's by some odd chance. Just... More

Very good Tex-Mex food that was freshly prepared. Everything was made fresh - even the refries. On street parking in the area was minimal. Happy hour drinks were a little smaller than expected but overall it was a great experience. Staff was great.
