Yummy!

Great little Tex Mex restaurant....fun and fanciful decor, great food and great for kids! This is the original Chuy's in Austin, near the park. We went to dinner before there before the big light show in December!

I couldn't wait to eat again at Chuy's. My first experience was great! I visit family a couple of times a year in Austin and was so looking forward to eating at Chuy's again. This time I was very disappointed. The first time I went was at a different location. However, my outstanding waiter told me to try the other... More

Great tex-mex, and drinks! Free queso for Happy Hour weekly! And the décor is quirky and bright! They have great T-shirts too!

We had to wait about 30 minutes. The place was packed. It was like that the whole time we were there. The front check-in staff were polite, and very busy. While you wait, they offer free Salsa and chips. I was not impressed with the red Salsa. The other Salsa was fresh and quite good. The seating is a little... More

The walls are covered in art, but with a Mexican tropical flare. The service is really good and served with a smile. The staff is always friendly. Every time we go there, we are a party of 10+ people and they always fine room for us...pull up a table here, a couple of chairs from over there. They always accommodate... More

Got there as they opened so we were immediately seated. The waitress was fantastic, got the chips and dip and tea refilled without asking. The order was delivered quickly and was right the first time. The food was delicious and way more than I could eat and I'm not a skimpy eater.

Came here on a local's recommendation while down in Texas on business. Oh. My. God. Everything was so delicious! It's impossible to not fill up on the nachos/salsa because they are delectable. I could not believe the quantity of food I got for 10 USD!! The burrito I had was to die for. Succulent meat, fresh veggies, what's not to... More

I've been going to Chuy's since they first opened here in Austin and the food never disappoints. I especially love their spicy margarita! I remember when they used to serve home-made pies for dessert -- wish they could do that again, especially something chocolate! Yum!

We love Chuy so much we went two nights in a row!! The chicken fajita is very good. The tacos are homemade as well as the tortilla chips. Ask for the creamy jalapeño sauce which is amazing. Great atmosphere and food!
