The shrimp tacos were absolutely horrible. If your looking for real shrimp tacos go over to buzz baits only 4 blocks down for amazing food and amazing prices!! The rice I got was so cold and hard as if was served from 2 days ago. I was very unhappy and our server only came by to take our orders. We... More

Food was very nice. You can order the guacamole to be made at your table which means you can choose how much chilli, onion, coriander and lemon you want put in. This was my favourite thing plus the bowls of home made tortilla chips they put in front of you with salsa. As in most places the drinks are almost... More

We love mexican food in our family, but we were not impressed with Uncle Julio's. The food seemed a bit bland, and the service was slow. We will not return.

My daughter and I stopped by after a visit to the nearby Cate & Barrel, Container Store and Apple Store. This is a large establishment and it was quite busy but we didn't have to wait for a table. The weather was remarkably mild for late Oct and all of the seats on the large porch were occupied. The interior... More

It is not very authentic...really Americanized Mexican (Tex-Mex). Food was all good, but not excellent. The homemade tortillas are to die for, however, and may be worth the trip. The drinks (Mojito and Margharita) were excellent. I was sort of forced to go here, and knowing it was not authentic I was not too excited, but it was better than... More

We visited Uncle Julio's for an amazing Mexican meal to finish off our holiday. This place was recommended and we booked a large family table. We were not disappointed and the food was excellent. Recommended
