We’ve put together our top 4 eats and experiences at Uncle Julio’s:

Tableside guacamole:

Uncle Julio’s famous guacamole is said to be “the guacamole you’ll remember.” Made with fresh Hass avocados, onions, tomatoes, cilantro and jalapenos right at your table for the freshest and most tasty of experiences. Feel free to customize or leave as is, we promise you’ll need at least 2 baskets of chips!

Mesquite-grilled fajitas:

Uncle Julio’s fajitas are grilled to perfection and full of sizzling deliciousness. You’ll love the flavor combinations of fajitas that Uncle Julio’s is excited to bring to Raleigh. Give their Honey Chipotle Chicken Fajitas a try with a sweet drizzle and wait for it… BACON. Uncle Julio's Combination Fajitas may be your next order with tender cuts of midwestern grain-fed steak and mesquite grilled chicken breast served with Mexican butter!  

Famous margaritas:

Feeling fresh? Well you’re in luck! Uncle Julio’s features a fresh margarita of the day, every day. You read that correctly. Freshly squeezed lime juice and muddled, in-season fruit. As if this wasn’t exciting enough, Uncle Julio’s also has an impressive list of homemade margaritas including their very own Swirled Margarita: frozen margarita swirled with house-made sangria. Two of our favorites all swirled into one!  

Chocolate Pinata:

Dessert AND a show! Uncle Julio’s offers a one-of-a-kind smashable dessert! This hanging ball of decadent dark chocolate is filled with homemade churros and fresh fruit. You’ll grab a miniature mallet and swing to bust the chocolate shell, exposing all of the sweet treats inside! Pro-tip: Looking to propose? Plan a special night with Uncle Julio’s management team and they can put your engagement ring inside the pinata!
