Uncle Julio’s Menu Prices (Updated: March 2023)

The restaurant is a bit of a dive, but the food is great. It’s simple and cheap, with family recipes passed down through three generations of Cuban cooks.

The menu is stacked with classics like Cuban sandwiches, pollo asado (grilled chicken), and plantains breaded in fried sweet potato batter. But I also love the spinach salad, jalapeno-stuffed tuna salad sandwich and homemade guava cheesecake.

As a Cuban-American, I take pride in my heritage, and Uncle Julio’s is a formidable ambassador. All of the dishes are named after relatives of the owner, with photographs of his family on the walls.

What really draws me back to this place is that the food brings me home, to a table with family—my parents, grandparents and five brothers and sisters. The restaurant has been open for almost 25 years now.

What’s unique about it is not that it’s a family-run Cuban restaurant in a city filled with them, but that the owner is the original owner. When his father, Uncle Julio, retired after setting up this culinary empire in Paterson, his son took over the establishment.

I met Virgilio Martínez on a hot day last summer while visiting my family in Paterson. He and I went to the same high school and played football together for years. He was one of my best friends back in those days.

Uncle Julio’s History

Uncle Julio's Menu Prices History

Uncle Julio’s was founded on a farm in Texas, Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, Florida, Georgia and Tennessee on February 2nd 1986 by Russell “Rusty” Fenton. The first restaurant opened in Houston with 75 employees and about 7 to 8 thousand total guests.

In 1989 the company opened its second location it Dallas with a 200-seat capacity and approximately 10 thousand guests/year. It was at this point that Uncle Julio’s began its rapid expansion.

By 1994, the company was operating over 20 locations with approximately 8 thousand guests/year and a total of about $20 million in sales. In 1998 Uncle Julio’s opened its third location in California which led to its largest expansion to date.

During this time, the company also began expanding outside of Texas, first into Florida and Georgia then onto Tennessee. The rapid expansion would continue until 2002 when Uncle Julio’s opened its first location in New York, Chicago and Louisiana.

Within the next five years, Uncle Julio’s would expand into Kansas and Washington D.C. by 2004, then Pennsylvania and Georgia by 2006, while California was finally added in 2008. Since then the company has expanded to Utah and Indiana as well as adding locations in Colorado and Texas.

The rapid expansion continued unabated until 2011 when Uncle Julio’s began to slow down their growth rate through the years 2013-2015 when they would expand only to Oklahoma, Florida and Georgia before finally tapering off in 2016 for unknown reasons.
