"More than anything, we are not focused on our liquor license, it just simply adds to the ambience and the great food. Being able to come downtown and have a cold beer with some fabulous fajitas or tacos, you just can't beat that," says Cindy Bryant, the head waitress at Julio's.
With Julio's finally up and running, what are their expectations?
"I think it will bring a lot of college kids in and a lot of younger people, where as a lot of other restaurants that don't have it, don't bring a lot of young people in. I think it will really help, we're going to get some TV's and have some sports nights and stuff like that," says Tabitha Burke, a bartender at Julio's.
Even though downtown businesses have faced much opposition over liquor licenses, Julio's was standing room only last night and with tonight being the first night open to the public, they expect to be even busier.
Many people eating and drinking at Julio's Friday night told us the opening has been a long time coming.
But what about the opposition?
