Our hostess seeing I was in a wheelchair seated our party of 5 to a table that was more then adequate and out of the way of traffic. The friendliness of the serving staff made us feel like we were their best customers. I needed assistance in finding items that were not over spiced and our server spent time describing dishes that I would be able to tolerate without causing me discomfort due to my tracheotomy. The appetizers (which were many) were delicious. Our entrees came out sizzling hot and oh so yummy. This was just a visit for me to Atlanta but I intend to return more often and will certainly make Uncle Julios one of my first stops.
I used to dine at Uncle Julio's on a regular until one night I was disgustingly disappointed. There I was, in a booth, just finishing up my dinner and chatting with my guest when I look to my left and see a roach resting on the wall. I assume it was resting caust it sat there long enough for the waiter to come back to check on us. Of course he saw it and offered us a free meal, but I'm never going back. I can eat out in the woods for free if I wana share my meal with ROACHES.
My daughter and son-in-law introduced my wife and I to Uncle Julio's after we moved to Atlanta. The food is authentic and the portions are generous. It is not unusual for a couple to be able to split an entree. The tortilla chips are made fresh and come right out of the oven to your table. The salsa is not too spicy so it will suit just about everyone's taste.
No matter what night you go there is always a crowd, but never a very long wait to get in. If you like Mexican, you'll like Uncle Julio's.

The food here is some of the best mexican food I've ever eaten. They have really awesome cheese enchiladas.
I asked for a mango mojito, but they don't have it. However, Javier the bartender hooked up a nice version using peach schnapps. That drink is tight.
The patio is really awesome on a nice night. It sits right on the road so if you don't like the sound of traffic then you might not like this location. I rather enjoy the view of all the traffic and passers by.
I highly recommend trying this place. I have been there twice and will return again.

Unfortunately, I wish I had more positive things to say about Uncle Julio's than negatives. Personally, I enjoy a mexican restaurant that doesn't shout neon orange and green colors in your face to advertise it is a mexican restaurant like Uncle Julio's does. I usually enjoy the suttle, authentic, non-tourist mexican finds in the city. This place is located on Peachtree St. near Collier Rd. and you cannot miss it. Uncle Julio's is probably the brightest restaurant on the block. I went for lunch and was positively greeted by everyone including the bartender from behind the bar. This was very refreshing and welcoming. We were seated at a table that was wobbly, and instead of having to deal with the table moving during lunch, our waitress Carol reseated us without us having to complain or stuff napkins underneath one of the legs to even the table. Carol was amazing. She provided incredible service and attendance to our needs. I never had my drink glass or chip basket empty. This is definitely the positive of Uncle Julio's. Their service is astounding with even the manager walking around refilling glasses. I ordered the cheese dip since I personally consider myself to be a cheese dip connesuir. I usually order the white cheese dip as my meal with a couple tortillas for dipping. When the cheese dip came my first thought was thank God I only ordered the cup and not the bowl! The cheese dip (pictured above) looked like velveeta and rotel cheese dip, but tasted worse. It was way to heavy to dip a chip into, let alone a tortilla. I couldn't eat much of it without feeling sick. I ordered the chicken quesadillas lunch special (pictured above). It included fruit on the side as well. The chicken was very well flavored, but still was not the best authentic mexican I have ever had. Seemed like the dishes did just enough to ""get by"" without providing any special flavors or additions to the dish. The food did not nearly match the incredible service, so I would not recommend this place for Mexican food to anyone visiting Midtown. Uncle Julio's is definitely a ""tourist"" spot for those who don't know all that Midtown has to offer. Uncle Julio's Fine Mexican Food is just what the name says it is: just Fine.

I am so appalled at the service I received at this restaurant it would take too to give all the details. So I will suffice it to say our server had no interest in serving our table and made that clear by making herself unavailable during our visit, any request we had were passed through another server, including paying our check! When the service was brought to the attention of management we were told that they can’t make a server wait on us … What! The last time I checked Restaurants were in the service industry making money by serving patrons. To make matters worse I sent a certified letter to the general manger and to date have never received a response (more than 3 months ago)! If management doesn’t care about the service in their restaurant it is hard to assume they care about other important matter such as food quality which is mediocre at best.

What a terrible experience. Don't plan on conversing with anyone it is so load in there. Our waitress was sexist and would only talk to my boyfriend. My margarita came and it was filled with ice, there was maybe 3 oz of liquid in there and it wasn't good. The food is expensive and nothing to write home about. I was charged .65 cents for something I don't even know and $ 1.75 for sour cream that was supposed to come with the dinner. We just wanted to get out of there. There are plenty of great Mexican restaurants in Atlanta, do not go to this one. Also, My stomach still hurts from dinner !!!!
