Last night we visited Uncle Julios for dinner and were enjoying a great evening until we were approached at the table by a panhandler. The individual was approximately 11 -14 years old, African American and was selling candy. I got up and informed the receptionist who said her manager knew of the situation. I spoke with the manager and informed her that this is the second incident with which I was not pleased - the previous time I had gone to Uncle Julios the valet took money out of my money cup. She stated that others had complained as well to which I responded, my issue was the lack of follow up from the management when I was told there would be follow up. She then sent the food manager to our table. The food manager, a tall African American approached the table with a hostile approach. His body language and tone was not that of someone who wanted to bring a solution to the table yet was more of someone who would welcome an argument. He stated the panhandler came through the front door and asked to use the restroom. Apparently, they allowed this minor to enter the establishment without adult supervision. I informed the manager of the issue with the panhandler as well as the issue with the valet. His apparent solution was to determine the amount of money which was taken from the valet. It is alarming however that a minor was allowed unaccompanied by an adult into an establishment which sells alcohol. The manager and food manager apparently have no regard for rules and laws established by the Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission. These individuals also lack communication and resolution skills.

For my night out with my family and friends we decided to go to Uncle Julio's. I am from Houston so we took the advice of our friend who lives in Dallas. I must say I was not disappointed! The atmostphere was great. We did have an hour wait but it went by quickly. We sat and drank margarita's and snacked on chips. The service was great. We ordered fajitas and the Shrimp.. oh my gosh it was SO GOOD. My daughter ordered her fav cheese enchiladas. I will say everytime we go back to Dallas this will be one restaurant we will go to everytime!

This place has great food and service in person, but what an absurdity that they wont take To-Go orders over the phone. That's ridiculous.
We're in the year 2007, someone should be capable of taking an order over the phone, and then relaying it to the kitchen. You shouldn't force customers with things to do, to come in, sit down at the bar, order to go, and then make them wait there.

This is my favorite mexican food. I totaly disagree with the negative reviews. In the last ten years I have never waited longer than 20min. It is so good, ""If there is small a wait......so what!"" Go to the Keller Springs location it is a much larger restaurant, so the wait is shorter. The chips are so fesh and the salsa has a great unique flavor. Plato Gordo, is the best item on the menu, but make sure you bring a few friends to share, this platter is huge. The Chicken enchiladas are fabulous, they have the creamiest sour cream sauce, or of course you can get any sauce you want. The service is always promt and friendly. The parking? This is the trick, take one swing around the building if you don't find a space there is a parking garage just accross the street on the north side. Everything on the menu is awesome, seriously! Fajitas, burritos, quesadilla, chicken, and the RIBS!!, the BBQ sauce is so good. I know it is weird BBQ sauce at mexican restaurant, but add a little salsa throw it in a tortilla......mmmmmmmmm!
You have to try it, you'll love it! The atmosphere at the grapevine location is the best.

We have gone here several times & each time we have had to wait an unusally long time to be seated. They wait staff is not the best either. When you go be sure & go early- because the dinner crowd & the weekend crowd gets to be overwhelming as they have limited seating in the waiting area.- However, we love the food..I just wish the front staff was as good as the cooking staff.

A few friends and I decided to give Uncle Julio's a try. We were immediately seated to a table but it took 20 minutes for a waiter to come get our orders. I ordered the vegetarian fajitas with portebella mushrooms, red peppers, and zuchinni. The salsa dip seemed a little watered down. The food was good though there was nothing about it that made me want to come back to try other things. The atmosphere was friendly but loud. Halfway through the food I realized that our waiter didn't even come back to refill our drinks. When he did it seem to take forever for him to come back with it. Price for the food was around $9-22 but I don't think I'll come back.
