Uncle Julio's has plans to open in Lubbock at the South Plains Mall at the old Firestone location in 2020 according to Lubbock in the Loop and Google Maps.

They will be situated in the parking lot, at the old Firestone location, not far from The Cheesecake Factory. This brings two well-known and pretty spectacular restaurant chains to this great location, just off The Loop on Slide Road.

Founded more than 30 years ago, the powerhouse Dallas-based restaurant has about 35 locations in 10 states, including 10 in Texas. Uncle Julio's is dedicated to freshness. Here's the story they share on their official website:

We opened our first restaurant with a simple commitment to fresh ingredients and handcrafted recipes. From the very beginning, we served mesquite-grilled fajitas, crave-able guacamole, and other Tex-Mex favorites. Whether guests are celebrating with family, meeting over lunch, or on a date, they have a welcoming atmosphere at Uncle Julio’s.

The will sprawl out over 8,500 square feet and include a 2,500-square foot patio overlooking a park, according to KCBD.

Welcome to Lubbock Uncle Julio's!
