My daughter and I stopped by after a visit to the nearby Cate & Barrel, Container Store and Apple Store. This is a large establishment and it was quite busy but we didn't have to wait for a table. The weather was remarkably mild for late Oct and all of the seats on the large porch were occupied. The interior... More

The drinks (Mojito and Margharita) were excellent. I was sort of forced to go here, and knowing it was not authentic I was not too excited, but it was better than... More

We visited Uncle Julio's for an amazing Mexican meal to finish off our holiday. This place was recommended and we booked a large family table. We were not disappointed and the food was excellent. Recommended

Made a quick stop here for lunch. The margaritas were clean simple and fresh. That theme carried through the meal. The chicken and steak fajitas were excellent. Tasted great and the produce was super fresh! Our server Jonathan was very personable and professional as well.

Tried this chain years ago while in Dallas and I have been dying to go again and bragging about it ever since! While in Chicago this week I had the chance and it was a priority. Friendly valet parking, cute atmosphere, nice waiter and FABULOUS fillet mignon fajitas. The thinnest best chips ever! Good salsa and GREAT guac! Love the... More

This Uncle Julio's was horrible! Our what left work before our meal. And our substitute waiter was his first day. He got our meal wrong. I suggest not to go there.
