Dallas-based Uncle Julio’s is eyeing at Frisco for their next branch which will boast more than 10,000 square feet of space for Frisco residents according to a Community Impact article from March 14 which reports,
“Uncle Julio’s plans to open a Frisco location in the second half of the year near the intersection of SH 121 and Preston Road, according to a news release from the restaurant.
The Tex-Mex eatery will be more than 8,500 square feet, the release stated. In addition, a 2,500-square-foot patio intended for outdoor celebrations, live music and game-watching parties will overlook a pond. Private group dining, catering, a happy hour, takeout and delivery will also be offered.
The restaurant will serve made-to-order guacamole and mesquite-grilled meats, the release stated. Margaritas and a Chocolate Piñata featuring a handmade chocolate globe filled with churros and berries will also be on the menu.
“We offer upscale Tex-Mex dining with made-from-scratch food, hand-crafted drinks and a unique experience our guests can’t get anywhere else,” said John Johnson, vice president of operations and Frisco resident, in the release. “We have wanted to open in Frisco for years, and now with the perfect location, we have all the ingredients we need to create something truly special here.”
Back in Dallas, Uncle Julio’s is famous for their handmade margaritas which are monthly changed and featured. They are also famous during the National Margarita Month according to a Restaurant News article from February 18. In it they say,
“Each month, Uncle Julio’s features a different hand-made margarita, squeezed and muddled into a refreshing margarita. February’s featured flavor is the Strawberry Hibiscus Margarita, made from muddled strawberries, hibiscus and freshly squeezed lime juice paired with 100% agave Lunazul Tequila and St-Germain. For an even more elevated experience, guests may choose to add a Premium Tequila Floater (in a fresh lime cup!) of either Lunazul Silver or Exotico Reposado to their Strawberry Hibiscus Margarita or any other Uncle Julio’s Margarita. The Strawberry Hibiscus Margarita is available for $12.50 and, where permitted by law, the Premium Tequila Floater can be added for just $2. And go ahead and put a visit to Uncle Julio’s in March on your calendar, as well: The Margarita of the Month for March will be the Cucumber Jalapeno!
Guests can also enjoy the Julio’s Gold Margarita or the Swirl, a frozen margarita swirled with homemade sangria, for just $5 during happy hour when dining in at Uncle Julio’s Monday through Friday, 3 to 6 p.m.
Guests placing to-go orders at UncleJulios.com can get $5 Frozen Margaritas and $5 Frozen Swirls (where available) to enjoy at home or wherever their own National Margarita Day celebrations take them.”
