We are long time residents of the area and have eaten at Uncle Julios many times. The food arrives at the table hot and tastes good, Margaritas are not too sweet and the beer choices are really good. Service is actually good for a busy restaurant. If you like Mexican food you should enjoy your meal.

We went downtown to Boca to see the Christmas lights turned on and called into this restaurant with three grand-kids in tow. Rachel, our excellent server, spotted our young charges and soon made them welcome. Happy hour was on so we had some nice savers and the quality of the dishes was high. Taste buds were stimulated by excellent flavours... More

After reading reviews, we decided to try this restaurant for lunch today. We ordered the strawberry margarita which was the special with a better tequila. The margarita was very mixy. The salsa and cups were greasy. The steak fajitas was greasy and I was sick to my stomach after eating. The service was poor. Would not recommend. We have had... More

I love this place and the food. On our visit this week, both my husband and I ordered the same entree. Jalisco, a fajita combo of shrimp, steak and chicken. My husband's platter was gorgeous. Lots of chicken and steak, loads of veggies, and the shrimp had beautiful char marks. Just like it always looks when we order this. My... More

I have been loosing the notches on my belt for over 25 years trying to find and eat at all the Uncle Julio restaurants. Boca Raton location is what one would hope for South Florida, with as much outside eating as inside. I find it hard to not get Carne Asada because it is one of the best marinated steak... More

Great location, food was good and service was good. Just feel a little pricey for what was served. Does allow dogs on patio which is also great.

We were quickly greeted and seated by a friendly hostess. Our server, (Zorayda), was quick to take our orders and provided good service throughout the meal. The food was good and they had a nice offering.

Had dinner here. Sat at the bar. Fast friendly service. Tacos were fresh and plentiful. Drinks were perfect. Salsa and chips also. Good stuff. Been here several times now. Always good.

The only reason we go to Uncle Julio's is to enjoy their chicken tamales. No other Mexican restaurant serves these. When you match them with their very good salsa verde, it's a meal. Their tortillas and corn chips are home made. The food is good and the price is reasonable.

I live in Texas so to visit a Mexican restaurant elsewhere is usually disappointing. This place has good food but it is so overpriced, by Texas standards, that my review may be skewed. It is the only place around to get good Mexican food but it is expensive. I'm not a real Mexican food fan so if it was up... More
