Uncle Julio's coming to Plymouth Meeting Mall

Apparently the expansion of the PMM restaurant footprint continues, Uncle Julio's, a 17 resto chain from Texas, is expected to open in November. I'm trying to picture where they're going to put it...

  1. "Uncle Julio’s will be built at the rear of the mall next to Macy’s, said attorney Mark Kozar, representing Uncle Julio’s of Pennsylvania LLC. The 17-unit restaurant chain is headquartered in Irving, Texas."

    Sounds like it might be close to where Whole Paycheck is maybe? or perhaps closer to the Movie theater? Its definitely not clear!

      I know, right? it's already a PITA to get around the mall. I'm kind of annoyed they're adding on again.

    2. thanks for the news juju. Just wondering what a PMM restaurant footprint is? Best not to leave it to my imagination!

        haha, didn't know how else to describe all the resto's they've added outside the mall. :)

          Good question, carbs. An acronym for Plymouth Meeting Mall is a guess at the translation. Obvious I suppose but took me a while too.

        2. I saw them building it when I was there a few weeks ago. It is actually connected to the mall, right next to the Charming Charlie entrance. Hard to explain, but it is on the opposite side of the rest of the restaurants- you would keep driving past Macy's, around the other side.

            Thanks Mag, I need to go to whole foods soon, I'm sure I'll see it then. :)

          2. Hmm, they should consider adding a multi-level parking deck rather than ANOTHER resto! it's a total PITA getting around that place, but can't argue with the variety they've put in there.

              A variety of chain restaurants.. what more could you want?

            2. An article about another new retailer at the Mall prompted me to look at the PMM store map to see where they're putting new stores. Apparently Uncle Julio's is going into the space that was a furniture store before they began this whole renovation project - it fronts onto the courtyard between the Mall proper and Whole Foods. For some reason I thought it was going to be a new free standing building - which would be ridiculous - considering what a mess parking and traffic are now.
