Das Uncle Julio's serviert mexikanische Küche mit ausschließlich frischen Zutaten. Zu den Spezialitäten des Hauses gehören Fajitas mit Huhn und Steak, zartes Filet Mignon und Garnelen im Speckmantel. Beliebt sind auch die Meeresfrüchte-Fajitas, Garnelen al Pastor, der Red Snapper oder der Gelbflossen-Thunfisch mit hausgemachten Tortillas oder Kopfsalat. Auf der Speisekarte im Uncle Julio's finden Sie auch Tex-Mex-Klassiker wie Tacos, Enchiladas und Tamales, alle mit einer Auswahl an täglich zubereiteten Soßen. Insider-Tipp: Bestellen Sie die eine direkt am Tisch zubereitete Guacamole. Wenn Sie diese etwas schärfer wünschen, können Sie sie mit frisch gehackten Jalapeños nachwürzen. Das Uncle Julio's bietet eine große Auswahl an Getränken. Probieren Sie auch die frische Margarita des Tages, die auf Wunsch mit frischem Obst zubereitet wird. Wenn Sie einen gefrorenen Drink bevorzugen, ist der Swirl die richtige Wahl. Der Swirl besteht aus gefrorener Sangria und gefrorener Margarita - ein Klassiker seit 1987. Bei Reservierungen werden Sie gebeten, bis zu 15 Minuten zu warten, damit Ihr Tisch gedeckt werden kann.

We had a party of ten for lunch. Our waiter was very attentive and went above and beyond to get things right. Our appetizers, entrees, and dessert were delicious.

I’m not gonna lie, I had seen the ads for the chocolate pinata dessert so that was the driving force of our visit. It is pretty loud bc of the way the restaurant is laid out. Our server (Sebastian) was awesome and personable. The food was surprisingly good (I mean the restaurant was packed so i wasn’t expecting all that much if they are cranking out that many dishes). The tableside guacamole was delicious and the habanero shrimp were a big hit (very spicy!) I also loved the seafood salad with seared ahi tuna. Of course the chocolate pinata was a gluttonous delight! Definitely recommend!!

Portion size has decreased quite a bit over the past few years so it is not the value it used to be when feeding hungry teenagers but Uncle Julio’s remains a family favorite (even if we still call the place Rio Grande!). Tables should be farther apart to help with the noise situation - we felt squeezed in with the tables for 4 so close together. And give us spoons! The beans are wet and need a spoon to get all the goodness to your mouth!

It took 20 mins to get drinks. Sever told us they had draft beer then didn't. Food came out cold. Server was awful. I asked for a 2nd drink and it never came. This place used to be good. The sad part was it was dinner time 5:30 we left at about 7 and the place wasn't even busy. Maybe that is because of the service and the quality. Our bill was about $95.00 for 4 and for that I wish we would have elsewhere.

Been a avid regular here for years and they really made our party feel awful.
So...we made reservations for 7 people (girls birthday) for 7:45 pm on a Saturday and we got there around 7:35pm. The place was busy but not to crazy busy and they wouldn't seat us until 7:45-pm.
They wants us to sit down in a both for six!!!!! we had to argue to get at least to sit down 4 in a both and 3 in a table next to it and still even though they were EMPTY tables around they wants us to sit down away from rest! then they have two servers each one confused and asking is this the same party? are all of you together? Finally they got chips and our drinks, we asked for more salsa and we had to ask twice to get it. Later, after a while, actually they took a long time to bring our food , they desapear they did not come back for at least 20 min. to see if we need something.
Plates and silverware were dirty, Almost 1 hour waiting on a Saturday to get our food ordered and the place barely had customers. We ended staying at the place for close to 2.0 hours Our party got full by just eating chips and salsa. I would advised people If your in Fairfax Corner try something else if you don't want to sit here for a long period of time being ignored by the service here when there is barely any people in the restaurant. The bill was outrageous for the SERVICE and CUSTOMER SERVICE quality of food you get. At check out, we waited for a long time for our receipt as requested on the system and we believed waiter was aware but no one ever came to give it to us. So we left. Not cool at all and again, manager did not come up and ask how we were doing.

We were a group of 4 celebrating a birthday. We ate outside - the weather was perfect! Food and drinks were delicious! Our service was excellent until the very end - we were ready to go and our server was nowhere in sight. We eventually flagged down another server who was able to find our server and we successfully closed out our bill. Very accommodating in letting us split the bill - their electronic payment system did it all for us.

The food was ok but on the very spicy side. A spice chart in the menu would help the customer in selecting menu items. The service was good. The reserved table was the very poorest table in the restaurant. The table was not square, rectangular, or round but "P" shaped. The cushion had seen its better days about 10 years ago. One end had absolutely no filling --just the top and bottom fabric. The noise level was over the top. Impossible to hold any conversation with the person sitting next to you. I probably will not return.

When Rio Grande / Uncle Julios arrived in Arlington, Va. years ago it was really a reliable place to go to for yummy Tex Mex cuisine. Maybe the Arlington location is still ok, but the Fairfax Corner location is sub par. We've been twice in 2019 and had underwhelming, unsatisfactory meals both times. For starters, the salsa that came complimentary with the chips had no flavor at all -- almost watery tasting. The guacamole was glopped on a plate of wilted, wet "back of the refrigerator drawer for 2 months" lettuce. Thought was just an oversight, when the chicken entree and fajita entree also came with really nasty looking and nasty tasting lettuce. Beyond that, other ingredients were clearly not as prime as it used to be -- chicken had no flavor and enchiladas tasted like they had been smothered with mediocre, out of a jar enchilada sauce. Nothing about the meal had a freshly made feel to it at all -- really disappointing. I'd advise management send someone quick to take a close look at the kitchen practices and rescue the food here. Service was very courteous, prompt and kind. Hard to get good Tex Mex food in this area, so hoping U.J. can right the ship.

My reservation was for 7:45 but we had to wait for 10 minutes. They have tables available but for some reason they like to make people wait. Had I not several times why it was taking so long, they would have made me wait even longer. The table they finally gave us had been empty the whole time since we arrived at 7:20.

Service was a little hit-or-miss. Slow to get help when we say down, then only 1/2 the table got food at first, the other two meals were 4-5 minutes late.

Once we got our food, no check up.

We ordered dessert (piñata), but we got through 2/3 of it before the manager brought out plates.

The food was as good as always, just thought we would have had better service on a slow Tuesday night.

Excellent experience! Beautiful day so we asked to sit on the outdoor patio. Our waiter, Tony, was great. It was our first time dining at Uncle Julio's and Tony explained the ins and outs of the restaurant. It was my husband's birthday and I wanted to surprise him with the chocolate pinata. I slipped a note to Tony and he took care of it without my husband ever catching on.
Began with the table side guacamole which was very good. Between our family we had the skirt steak fajitas, Juanita's platter and the chicken quesadillas. All were wonderful and more than ample....we had leftovers for lunch the next day.
The star of the show however was the chocolate pinata! What a great surprise. It was filled with strawberries, blackberries, pineapple and mini churros. The tray covered 2/3 of the table and had dipping cups of caramel, swirls of chocolate sauce and raspberry sauce and mounds of the most decadent whipped cream ever. So much fun. Again, we have a container of chocolate pieces and fruit to munch on for days.
While we have another local Mexican restaurant that we love we all agreed that Uncle Julio's is a step above them in all aspects and will become part of our rotation. Can't wait to try their brunch and will definitely ask for Tony if he's working.

Although reservations were recommended for the time, there were ample tables available. Service was excellent and prompt. Food quality was acceptable but for the price it lacked substance. The lunch menu was priced rather high in my opinion for what you get. Overall it was acceptable and I would go back there again and maybe stick with the appetizers.
