The Restaurant That Started It All

Uncle Julio’s Lemmon Avenue

Established in 1986 on the corner of Lemmon and Douglas Avenues in Dallas, Texas, this is the original Uncle Julio’s location and home to our classic Tex-Mex flavor. This is also the birthplace of our world-famous Swirl Margarita.

The area around the restaurant might have changed since our founding, but the community that made the Lemmon Avenue location a success is still thriving today. Located in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas and a short drive from notable venues like the AT&T Performing Arts Center, Dallas Arts Museum and Perot Museum, this is a great spot to experience the best of what Dallas has to offer.

Bring your friends and family and join the fiesta at Uncle Julio’s on Lemmon Avenue!
