Greatest Hits

Uncle Julio's. Fondue and s’mores are the history of participatory desserts. The future is the Chocolate Piñata at Uncle Julio’s! Served with various sweet sauces, it is a veritable giant Christmas tree ornament of chocolate, filled with mini churros, berries and fruit that you whack tableside with a wooden stick for an explosion of crowd-pleasing goodness. All food should be served this way. International Drive. unclejulios.com
