The mexican food tastes like any other similar type of restaurant - nothing really special here. But they have a Sangria Swirl drink that is awesome. Their margaritas are also good. Great place for a big group.

I love Uncle Julios. This is the most authentic food and reminds me of my moms house. Everytime that I got there they make me feel so especial because everyone knows my little son by his name. This is a good place for dinner and not expensive.

Pros: Not Crowded

Cons: Inattentive Rude Servers, Incapable and Apathetic Managers

This place is decent, but it's not at the top of my list. It's a little overpriced for the quality that you get. I'd rather go to a hole in wall with cheaper, more authentic food. I would go back for the patio though.

Great mexican food that's reasonable priced. The salsa is fantastic! I could make a meal there just on chips, salsa, and margarita's! Best on the menu would have to be the carne asada.

This restaurant has the absolute best, hands-down fantastic chips and salsa I have ever, ever tasted. The chips melt in your mouth and are therefore dangerous because you could easily eat buckets of them. I highly recommend Juanita's Platter, and the Swirl margarita is great as well. THe atmosphere is great - so fun and festive. There is a painting of a Chihuahua with a maraca in his mouth that is to die for. Don't miss it!

The steak fajitas are always a sure bet.

One warning - if the menu says something like "chicken tacos" comes with "chicken and cheese" - that's exactly what

The Scene
Latin music blares loud enough to rattle your dishes at this rustic casual Mexican restaurant. The kiddie crowd comes early and the margarita drinkers stay on, filling several mid-sized rooms--plus the outdoor patio…
