I have eaten at several other locations without incident. The food is good but the service this time was painfully slow! When it came time for the bill it took almost 20 minutes! I'm sorry but that is unacceptable. Sorry for the low mark but... come on...

We ate here again and it was so much better than the last time I felt like they deserved a better review. They let me substitute shrimp in place of chicken for the chicken enchilada lunch. It was fresh and delicious! Some Mexican places definitely use less desirable shrimps in their enchiladas, these ones were very good. I will definitely... More

I loved this restaurant - until I was treated terribly by the owners son. I called in because they overcharged my credit card by $5.50. The phone was answered by the owner's son and when I explained the situation he told me that I had to "prove" they overcharged me by coming in to the restaurant and show him the... More

Casual and festive ambiance. Our waitress didn't have enough English to understand a drink order, but that was quickly sorted out by another server. Service was attentive. Extensive menu and lots of ways to mix and match and customize your dinner. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large, a combination which usually equates to substandard food -- not here!...

I was here for lunch on a Saturday. It was after 1 pm when I arrived. I ordered the vegetarian fajitas. Soon I saw a server come out wearing an elbow length potholder carrying hot plates of food. My ordered arrived quickly. I received several plates of food for a do-it-yourself meal. One plate was three tortillas, another plate contained... More

I like the bar area better than the restaurant, big comfy booths! Service was cheerful and quick. Chips & Salsa brought immediately. Had the Lunch menu. Chicken Fajitas were good, fairly average. Large Texas Margarita was average. Nothing stuck out that I need to rush back but the food was priced good only $40. For 2 lunch Fajitas, 2 Margaritas,... More

Three of us had lunch at Don Julio's and for me, it was my first visit. I immediately like the ambience of the restaurant and the location is easy to get to in White Bear Lake, MN. I ordered the Speedy Gonzalez - which was a Taco, Enchilada, and Re-fried Beans. The chips and salsa were on the table when... More

Like the food here and the prices are reasonable but the service is shoddy.

My husband and I met another couple there for dinner on the patio. My husband and I were both ill the next couple of days. Service was dreadfully slow--even though it was not terribly busy.

Don Julio's always is constant and good food. The service is usually very quick and helpful. The portions are large and you will definitely walk out full. The chips and salsa are always a good start to your experience. The only thing I would not order again is the Pina colada it was the worst I have ever had. Otherwise... More
