BROOKFIELD — Authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine is now up for grabs at Uncle Julio’s, the latest establishment to open in Brookfield Square as part of the development of the former Sears department store site.

The first location in Wisconsin, Uncle Julio’s, 245 S. Moorland Road, hosted its grand opening event on Tuesday. The chain is based in Texas.

According to a press release from the company, the restaurant is known for fresh, high-quality ingredients and memorable dining experiences.

“We deliver an upscale, authentic dining experience anchored by made-from-scratch freshness and a menu that offers the kind of interactive and memorable dining experiences our guests can’t get anywhere else,” said Tom Vogel, CEO of Uncle Julio’s.

Visitors are able to watch as guacamole is made tableside, look into the open kitchen to see dishes being prepared or even crack open a “Chocolate Piñata.”

The atmosphere of Uncle Julio’s is described as a “mix of old world Mexican and modern industrial décor.”

Cooks serve up traditional dishes such as tacos and enchiladas, as well as mesquite grilled combinations and seafood combinations.

Uncle Julio’s is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.
