Great Food and Fun for the Whole Family

Uncle Julio’s Bethesda

Opened in 1987, this location was the second Uncle Julio’s restaurant we opened, and the first established in the Washington D.C. area. Uncle Julio’s Bethesda, known locally as the Rio Grande Café, is situated at the corner of Bethesda Avenue and Arlington Road and is the best place in town for authentic Mexican food, incredible service and family fun.

Uncle Julio’s Bethesda has been voted as the most kid friendly restaurant in Bethesda for its great patio and family friendly atmosphere. With convenient access to the Metro and located only a few minutes from downtown Washington D.C. and Georgetown, this is an ideal spot to enjoy a meal and then experience the best of what the area has to offer.

Fresh flavors, fine food and family fun await you at Uncle Julio’s in Bethesda!
