Not as authentic Mexican as I usually like, but very good TexMex. The Laredo is a fairly amazing dish and definitely worth the steep price. The meal is more food than most can finish in one sitting so go sparingly on appetizers. Good luck with having room for desert. The salsa has a wonderful smoke flavor for the tasty but... More

Food quality and choices were good. Prices are incredibly high for average Tex-Mex. We waited 50 minutes for a table and when we did get one it was a booth that did not allow much room from seat back to table edge we all felt cramped in our seats. As we were seated several booths became empty around us and... More

I had business to attend to in McKinney and decided to go into the restaurant at 9:30pm because it is advertised to stay open until 10:00pm. We were promptly seated and there were at least 10 other tables still being served. After 15 minutes and no one coming to take our drink order, I went and advised the manager that... More

Seated at a dirty booth with a sticky tabletop. 4 sets of tableware nicely presented in a napkin pocket. 3 sets had food stuck to them. Received new tableware, 2 sets were crusted with food. Meal was ample but bland, tasteless. 4 margaritas almost $50. Total bill for 3 meals NO appetizers $96. $50 margaritas tasted alright but couldn't overcome... More

Good place for quick bite and get together with people. Plenty parking and staff was good Try to get in early as location causes crowds toward early evening.

Having lived in Dallas for 4 years and having our pick of amazing tex-mex restaurants, we were spoiled by the time we moved away. Whenever we have a chance to go back for a visit, we always make time for a meal at Uncle Julio's... who in my humble opinion, have the best chicken fajitas in Texas! The tortillas are... More

We heard about this place from the actor Alan Tudek so we stopped on in and had some amazing food. The fajita and tamales were done very well. Enjoy !!

Full disclosure. My son, Sean, works there, as part of the management staff, and at his invitation I was there on December 31 for a late lunch. I was first of all surprised to see the restaurant half full at 3:30 pm. Mind you this is a cavernous place so easily over 100 people were eating at this hour. This... More

My wife and I had dinner there and we ordered two basic meals and four small house margaritas. The bill with a 20% tip was $95.00!!!! The margaritas were $11 each, which I feel was a ripoff. The food was your basic Tex-Mex and was average at best. The primary reason for the low rating was the excessively high price.... More

Uncle Julio's is in a good location near many shops and restaurants. For a Sunday night it was very busy. Tried to have a nice family dinner but we were seated near a large group that were loud. Service was good. Chips and salsa are served while being seated. Chips were a little greasy and salsa spicy. The cheese enchiladas... More
