Uncle Julio's is a chained Mexican fine dining restaurant. I've always loved this particular location because it's right by the lake. On a warm day, you can enjoy outdoor dining overlooking the lake and it's also great for people watching. Their menu is extensive and has everything from chips and dip to fajita platters that are to die for. We picked several courses to share since it was already close to dinner time.
We ordered the crab meat guacamole appetizer to start. It was freshly made and very delicious! I love regular guacamole to begin with, with crab meat, it was even better. We couldn't finish the big chunk of guacamole of course, so I even used some with the steak fajitas to make a fine burrito!

We also ordered 3 entrees to share: fish tacos, steak fajitas, and chicken quesadilla. They were all delicious and the portions were big!

We were very happy with all three entrees. Since my parents-in-law live in Asia, they rarely get a nice Mexican meal treat, so it worked out perfect. After the satisfying meal, we walked around the lake a little bit and took couple gorgeous pictures. I love the convenience of Washingtonian center and the abundance of good restaurants there!
