This resturant was a last resort choice. When I first entered the resturant I was right away put off about the host staff. They stood there chatting and laughing with each other for a few min while staring blankly at me. Then when we were seated the table was not clean and had to be wiped down. We had a reservation for a larger group so I assumed that this would have been taken care of ahead of time. Our waitress was pleasent and helpful. I did not like however when you have a large group that the wait staff dosnt come around the table while taking orders instead makes you shout them across your party. Now the food...... I think it was food? Most Mexican or southern inspired resturants make there own chips and salsa......not here its low end. Over priced for what you get. And as for taste well they seem to try to hide the skill leve with spice and onion. I honeslty think they need to take a vist to a real mexican resturant to see how it should taste. The only thing holding this resturant up is the drinks. Hats off to the bartenders. Youll need a few bulldogs to get through this meal.
I love Mexican food. Juilio's has a GREAT atmosphere as well as great food. The bulldog's and margaritas are awesome. Great place for a group or a date. Love the patio when its hot.
Enjoying a cool drink on a hot day is often prize enough, but from the Spanish-style second-level patio at Julio’s Barrio, the experience is elevated to a sublime level thanks to the gorgeous view of the downtown core and the Bow River. With the nearby trains, trails and bike paths, becoming the designated driver is a non-issue, which means you can hunker down and beat the heat with one of Julio’s Barrio’s famous slushy bulldogs.View this Smart List
Perched on the corner of Memorial Drive and 10th Street Northwest, Julio’s second-storey outdoor space offers one of the best patio views of Calgary’s downtown skyline. Take in the vista while you chow down on some tacos, fajitas or burritos and drink one of Julio’s many varieties of bulldog – a beer upended in boozy slush, it’s perfect for summer sipping.View this Smart List
Bulldogs and margaritas are big at this Mexican party castle in Kensington. But you can also pair you tacos, burritos and antojitos with tequila selections from its well-priced menu of more than 50 labels. Ask for a seat on the river-facing, second-floor patio in warm weather.View this Smart List
