This restaurant is in a rather obscure place behind another building off a side street. The parking was not quite adequate to accommodate the number of patrons, so be prepared for a distant walk if you go.
If you like a noisy place with kids wandering around with foot high ice cream cones, then this is the place for you. It took a while for the waiter to come to the table and when he did, he was only half listening as I was placing my order. I actually paused for a moment until he focused his attention on what I was saying.
The menu offered typical Tex-Mex items with limited combinations. Of note were the stuffed avocados and various snapper entrée’s. The portions were modest and sparse on the plate. As most restaurants offer both red and the more popular green sauce for dipping, this place only offered the red sauce.
The chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce were rather flat and the sauce was very thin for that type of sauce. It reminded me of the old Pancho’s fare. The rice was different than the typical Spanish rice. It was white, with cilantro and lime and was very tasty. That’s about the only thing to get excited about, although the margarita was good.
The entrée prices range from $14 – $22, which in my opinion is overpriced for the quality of the food. Overall, Don Julio’s was lackluster. It did not stand out in any way. The food was just mediocre. The service was lacking, and it was teaming with loud kids. It did not impress me enough to draw me back.
Overall Rating: 2 1/2 stars.
