Uncle Julio's - Arlington/ Ballston
Great and quick service for lunch
Food and service were fantastic. Our server Siyenee was great!
We got there and sat really fast, even though it was Valentine’s Day, the food was delivered fast and it was really good. The server was nice and really attentive
Valentine’s Day with some people I love!
La comida de muy mala calidad. Muy salada y precocinada. Muy grasosa. La atención en la recepción pésima, muy indiferente. El mesero se esforzó pero la calidad de cómoda y todo lo demás me decepciona. Adiós a este restaurante no vuelvo y al que me pregunte no lo recomiendo. Mi esposa y yo estamos en el baño. La comida nos hizo daño.
Overall the food was very good but thought the wait time was longer than usual
Overall good experience. The salsa was good, but the chips seemed slightly stale. Service was good, although one of my substitutions was missed. It is a little loud and the chairs and tables are like a cafeteria, but the food is good enough that it doesn’t matter.
Not sure of the appeal of this place. Food was generic and bland. Bar service was really slow (took forever for drinks to come to the table). And it was loud!

We love Uncle Julios and always visit when we are back in the DC area. Everyone enjoyed the amazing salsa, queso and chips.. our entrees were wonderful. For the first time in years the service was horrid. One member of our party said that the service has deteriorated the past several months. I wonder what has changed to affect service so dramatically.
Food and service was great! We will be back again.
Service was very slow, but the server was excellent.
Celebrating a birthday! Consistently great service and food. It did seem louder than usual. Have been going to the Ballston location for over 25 years! Still one of our favorite restaurants!!
Everything was great except we didn’t get the piñata after waiting over 30 mins and that was our whole point of coming out to the restaurant ..
Loved chocolate piñata cake !! Will visit again for that.
We sat at the bar and the bartenders were friendly and welcoming. Food service was fast. DRINKS were fantastic!!
Margaritas could have been a little stronger, especially when paying $14 for them, but overall drinks were tasty. Food is consistently good and high quality/fresh. It was very busy and service was still timely and done well!
The waitress was very good.
Every time we go without fail we have to wait for our table, while there are empty tables. This doesn’t happen at busier and hipper places so I’m not sure why it’s always happening here.
Food was great as always. We waited forever for drinks and food.

Food is always good, but service is always disappointing. Wait for servers, wait for food and then really wait for any followup needed during the meal.

We made a reservation to celebrate a birthday. We 5-10 min early and was seated 20 min past our reservation time. To compensate, we received complimentary appetizer. Food was great and tasted fresh. Will def visit this location again
Chocolate piñata was a hit !!!
We’ve been to this, and other Uncle Julio’s locations, and this one is our favorite. The food is always perfectly prepared and the service is good.
Everything was superb
We go here every NYE for family dinner and we love it!
Hands-down the best Tex-Mex restaurant. Nothing else comes close.
Consistent - solid, chain meal.
Food was amazing... server was prompt and friendly. I enjoyed the atmosphere and had a really good dinner with my family. We’ll be visiting again soon
My friends and I enjoy coming here every so often, each time has been extremely pleasant. The food is tasty and the drinks never fail. Our favorite to order is the swirl with the shot of patron!
Love this place. Never disappoints.
The food was excellent!
Chicken fajitas were slightly pink
Drinks never refilled and took 20 minutes to receive
The food was beyond spectacular, the service was good. The food was awesome or did I say that already.
Been a great neighborhood restaurant for 20+ years. Food is always well prepared and presented. staff is super. always good.
still a bit loud.
Loud...excellent food...good service
Great food and service.
Excellent service. Good food. Nice atmosphere. Value for the money.
Very much enjoyed the Plato Grande but should have ordered the 3-4 size and not the 2-3 size, as it was barely brought 3 of us. Good service and consistent restaurant.
First off I did a reservation for 8:30 pm and it still took about 15 minutes before getting seated. For the price we paid for drinks were to expensive for it to come in a beer mugs. Then the food too was expensive and it wasn’t even hot. My daughters didn’t eat there’s and one was actually taken back. I rather go to chipotle for food and roadhouse for a drink🤔. Naw I wouldn’t recommend this place.
Our host had so many tables he couldn’t keep up with servicing us.
