My first visit to Austin included a trip to Chuy's based on a friend's recommendation. It was excellent tex mex -- lots of choices and large portions, not to mention tasty. The atmosphere is fun but noisy and the service is fast. I would have to rate it as excellent within its category.

I had only been to Chuy's one time before moving to Austin. The service at the Barton Springs restaurant is fantastic and the food is always delicious. One of my favorite things to do is go with friends during happy hour to enjoy cheap drinks and free queso and salsa. The creamy jalapeño dip is so delicious, sometimes my friends... More

I came here for the first time as my sister's Mother in law suggestion. I'm really impressed with all the decoration in the restaurant. Really unique!! The food is amazing. The portion is really big for an Asian girl but we always can take it home :) The restaurant gave me free dessert after the know that that was my... More

If you're in Austin, this is a place you should definitely see. The tortilla chips are the best chips I've ever had in my life. The salsa is really good, and there is this white sauce that was amazing. I don't even know what it was. I just know I liked it. I was happy with everything about the place.... More

In Austin, Texas there are a lot of great places too eat. And hwne it comes to Mexican food, there is definitely no shortage. Yet, Chuy's is a classic and for very good reason(s). The food is excellent, always, and the staff is wonderfully friendly and outgoing. I highly recommend Chuy's if you have not yet eaten here. Go to... More

I recently had the pleasure of eating at this well-known Mexican restaurant in Austin. We had a short (<10 min.) wait for a table, which was happily spent imbibing on an wonderful margarita in the bar seating area. Our server, Rachel K. was friendly, fast, attentive, and professional. As a vegetarian, I was delighted to find several dishes on the... More

This is the first place my daughter who lives in Brooklyn goes to straight from the airport. The food is consistently delicious. Very reasonable prices and service is fast and friendly. I have never had a bad meal there and I've been going since the original opened on Barton Springs. Happy hour has free queso with meat and pico. Perfect... More

When a restaurant is busy this typically means it is very good food, and we couldn't agree more. No one on our table was disappointed with their selection, and given the amount of people, the food came fairly quickly and was reasonably priced. The only negative is the noise level. Definitely difficult to have a conversation, or at least one... More

I stopped here on my "walk" along the Ladybird trail from downtown to Barton Springs. I was starving! Had to get a margarita, which was tasty. I wanted the frito pie, but I got shrimp tacos. They were pretty good. The breading on the shrimp was a little bitter. I'd probably try something different next time. I think the beans... More
