"Where to spend Cinco de Mayo" Uncle Julio's Hacienda Tip by TRimer

Uncle Julio's Hacienda, Chicago: 1 reviews and 0 photos

This is a great place for margaritas as they serve over 20 types of tequilas. I am partial to the swirlys which are a potent frozen concoction that mixes fruity sangria with golden margarita.

To be honest, I cannot comment much on the food. It is your basic mexican fare. I have usually had a few before we get seated so it all tastes good by then. The service is ok- the poor waiter/waitress is usually waiting on several tables with very large groups of inebriated people.

Dress Code: The trick is to put your name in when you arrive. Lie about having your entire party with you. If for some reason they have a table for you before everyone arrives- tell them that they are in the bathroom. Otherwise you will drop down to the end of the list.
