The Uncle Julio's Story

The first Uncle Julio’s opened in Dallas, Texas, in November 1986. The popularity of Uncle Julio’s grew rapidly, and with it came an instant craze for a drink Uncle Julio’s named The Swirl, a frozen concoction of margarita layered with home-made sangria. Uncle Julio’s has grown to 17 restaurants in six states: Texas, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.

Uncle Julio’s is committed to providing the freshest and highest-quality, border-style Mexican food. Using a distinctive hacienda decorating style, Uncle Julio’s created a unique restaurant concept around original recipes that demand only the freshest ingredients. Beyond tacos, enchiladas and tamales, Uncle Julio’s specializes in marinated and mesquite grilled beef and chicken fajitas, ribs, quail, frog legs, and jumbo shrimp – not to mention unparalleled service and a dining experience that is full of authenticity and fun.
