Chuy's Excellent adventure

Vibrant place, busy and efficient. Locals hang out in the bar area and will talk to you. Food is great. Can be a little tricky to park during busy periods. Well used establishment.

My Husband and I headed here for Dinner and we were surprised how busy it was. Obviously this place is well known. We were told we would have a 30 minute wait which was no problem. Headed to the bar and ordered a couple drinks just before happy hour ended. We were unaware of the free taco bar during happy... More

Been here several times before, have had fantastic experiences here! Love the food and most of the time the wait staff! Love the out door patio! But unfortunately all it takes is one bad apple to spoil the whole orchard! Our waitress was impatient and just could not smile dispute our efforts!

The is the second time I have eaten at Chuy's and I have enjoyed their authentic Tex-Mex cuisine. I was dissappointed that the yummy fried avacado was only served 1 day a week. My second visit wasn't on that day. So I chose the loaded nachos and a frozen margarita. Nachos were fantastic, but margarita was marginal, at best,

We love Chuy's! We go to a large restaurant back home, often. It was fun to try an original Chuy's restaurant! The food was great, and the server was friendly. If you haven't tried the creamy jalapeno sauce, ask for some and eat it with your chips!

Good place to grab some tex-mex in Austin. Not mind-blowing, but very good and very fast. Atmosphere is light and fun, good margaritas as well.

We recently had lunch at Chuy's. It was quite crowded, and we had to wait for a table. Once seated, we had a delicious margarita with the chips and salsa. The salsa is quite good, chunky not saucy. I ordered the tacos and my husband ordered the daily special, which was the chicken enchiladas. Both dishes were fabulous! The atmosphere... More

I went to chuy's after reading the recommendations and being suggested by the locals. I was expecting some real high quality mexican food, but was sadly disappointed. We had a range of dishes from fajitas to enchiladas. The food was ok, a bit bland really. The service was reasonable, but the place seemed to lack atmosphere. I got the impression... More

We went to Chuy's today with our family of seven and everyone was lovely. The service was prompt and friendly. The kids got a kick out of the decor. The kids enjoyed their food very much. We found elements of the meal to be very good, but overall it was just pretty good Tex Mex. I had the Baja Tacos... More
