The chips are very thin and crispy, the salsa is slow roasted and different than most salsa but very good and flavorful. I ordered the chicken fajitas and the ingredients were extremely fresh and flavorful. Service was very quick and it was 7 p.m. at night and the place was pretty full. Overall a very good experience.

I live in NC and visit Uncle Julio's every time I'm in the Metroplex. Sadly, this location was a disappointment. I was there with a friend and her two kids. Her son ordered the kid's fajitas and they were really gross - super dry meat and beans. No veggies. The service was just odd. I'm not sure how to describe... More

This place is so good. Reasonably priced and big servings. Margaritas were very tasty too!! We did visit with 12 people in our party and the next time I'll call ahead as I was told that would have reduced our wait time. But with a party that large I didn't expect to be seated quickly. We just enjoyed a few... More

My son and I stopped in for dinner this evening. We walked in at 6:15 and were seated immediately. About 10 minutes later a line formed and they started handing out pagers, and so get there a bit early. The chips were served right away. They were hot and fresh. The salsa was ok. It would be nice to have... More

We had reservations for 6:30 and we weren't seated until after 7:30. This wouldn't have been a problem had we not had 4 children in our group of 11...which is why we made the reservation in the first place. Our food was good. We ordered the Chocolate Piñata which was lots of fun and very good. The food is pretty... More

My small group stopped here for M food while I-35 was backed up. Good happy hour drinks with happy hour specials for dinner (at the bar). Very tasty, great service. 2 drinks, dinner and out for under $25 with tip. I;d recommend this place.

If your having mexican food cravings this is the place to go. The food was seasoned properly, plates were hot when they were brought to the table and our server was constantly checking on us to see if we needed anything. I would definitely be back for another round.

Had never been to one before and it was suggested so we went. We were seated after about a 5-10 minute wait, and chips showed up immediately. Only thing I was disappointed with the whole time was the salsa, it was about as hot as Heinz ketchup, but still had good flavor. Or server, Alfredo, was amazing. Very prompt and... More

Our waiter was oh so charming! From the time we sat down, I thought he was going to provide us with a pleasurable dining experience. This was important to me as one of our party is always critical and very hard to please. Chips and salsa and drink orders were served immediately.Unfortunately Mr. Charming failed to check on us.
