My husband & I have been here several times, with nothing but praise for the great service and fantastic food. The burritos are really good, with a variety for all tastes. The tamales are great, but the margaritas are really wonderful. They have a variety of excellent tequilas to choose from, including my personal favorite Hornitos Reposado. The prices are... More

We were looking for a way stop after leaving Mpls area - not quite ready for vacation to be over but wanting to get out of the metro before traffic got bad (Labor Day weekend). Ended up at Don Julio's and were happy with our choice. Typical Tex Mex, but the food was flavorful and plentiful, service was fast and... More

Enjoyed a beautiful summer night on the patio. The menu is large but decided on the seafood chimichanga. Was expecting tiny shrimp but they were large and grilled with grilled peppers also. Also had the margarita which was tasty. The food is good and so is the service.

My family and I stopped here because of the great trip advisor reviews. This was hands down the worst service we have ever had. It wasn't terribly busy, our server was just forgetful and never in sight. I ordered Chile rellanos, which tasted freezer burnt and chewy. The burrito meat was very bland as well... I would not waste my... More

My Bias: First - I love Mexican (TexMex) food. Second - I was hungry. Went in for lunch. The lunch portions were large. I had the lunch fajitas and it was well seasoned, We had fast AND friendly service. Seemed to check on us at the appropriate times for refills and such without the obligatory, "How's everything tasting so far?"... More
