Uncle Julio's is a fixture in Reston. The frozen drinks and beers are always good and the food is plentiful and delicious. I particularly like brunch.

As a local, it's easy to dismiss Uncle Julio's considerable culinary charms. It's been a staple of the Reston Town Center for what feels like forever, first as the Rio Grande Cafe and then later renamed Uncle Julio's (one location of a multi-state chain) What...More

The cocktails are great, the food is authentic. I have been to more stylish Mexicans, but come on, you are in Reston, VA. Will come again. Friendly service.

Family of 4 are foodies, two adults, one teen, one early-20’s, and there’s only one place we’ve found in years that compares with Uncle Julios: Merry Piglets in Jackson, WY. UJ’s is the best in the DC area, hand’s down. Been that way since Rio...More

Stopped in as my daughter wanted some Mexican food. We haven't been to this location in a few months, and have to say that the food is just ok. By all means, much better than a lot of other Mexican restaurants in the area, but...More
