    Bring a flash light! It's so dark and the tables are insanely close together. Food is no where near worth the price. Big thumbs down

    Damn best carne asadas I've ever devoured. And I'm from SoCal visiting the area! Fast excellent service too which made the whole dining experience at Uncle Julio's very positive.

    My absolute favorite! I love the god and the drinks. If you go on Friday night or Saturday calculate waiting time in, it's always crowded.

    If you order s drink be certain to specify the liquor you want, otherwise you'll get whatever is the most expensive so the servers can pad your bill.

    The veggie fajitas were giant, but amazing. Squash, zucchini, peppers, onions and tomatoes instead of the usual peppers and onion mix.

    Call ahead seating is definitely the way to go; especially on Thurs, Fri, & Sat nights. But their home-made tortillas are worth their weight in gold!
