Hanging @ Julio's

On Saturday, September 11, I went to Don Julio's, a Mexican restaurant on 28th street. I went because my Uncle Nate was here, I was hungry, and Miss June recommended it. There were 10 of us, but we still got seated quickly. I went with my family, plus Uncle Josh, Aunt Renee, Uncle Nate and the cousins. Don Julio's has a lot of atmosphere but only a little decor. The rooms were kind of dark. It wasn't really noisy, but maybe it would have been if it were crowded. It was clean. I thought the Aztec crucifix statue thing and sun and moon ceramic frescos were interesting. I had chips and salsa. The chips were salty and I could taste the hot pepper and cilantro in the salsa. The kid's food came with two entree items. I had an all cheese quesadilla and a spicy beef enchilada. It was awesome! Our waiter was attentive. He refilled the chips and salsa, and drinks as much as we wanted. He did a cool trick. He balanced a lot of full plates on his arm. The food came quickly. Hardly a wait at all. What Don Julio's needs, though, is customers. I'm blogging about it, so you can go. You can tell your friends about it too. Its a good value for your money, great food, and it would be a pity if they shut down because people didn't go there. I give Don Julio's 5 stars.
