We stopped en route from South Padre to Corpus for lunch. It's great fast food to get you back on the highway. We had fajitas, chicken fried steak, grilled chicken salad, tres leches cake, chips and salsa. Everything was delicious and great prices! Highly recommend!

Delicious food! Will definitely be back. The omelette was so good and my husband said tortillas were the best he's ever had.

Julia's a good selection in their menu, but their speciality is Mexican Food. Plenty of room and great service. One your to and from South Padre Island stop by and enjoy a good meal with friendly people.

Julia's is a staple in Los Fresnos, major local joint here but great food...the chili con carne enchiladas are awesome, that chili sauce is out of this world good!!! Chips and salsa were above average as well...my buddy had the seafood platter and he said it was really good as well....not expensive at all...service friendly as always!

On our trip from South Padre Island to the airport in Harlingen, our friends said they just couldn't go back to Michigan and NOT have had Mexican food so close to the border. We happened to run across Julia's Restaurant on our trip, and decided to give it a try. What a great choice! So many menu selections, it takes... More
