Fun Tex-Mex with Energy

We've been to chains before, like Chi-Chi's, so stopping at Chuy's for dinner I expected the standard Mexican fare. We enjoyed the atmosphere, as it was very lively (and a little noisy). The wait staff was having fun, and it was infectious. Our server was very nice and quick. The food was again too... read more

On repeat visit ordered the Elvis combo and it took forever to get our food and then the plate was blazing hot and the food was cold and frankly tasted "old" I have no other way to describe it. An hour later I felt ill. The only reason I gave it 2 stars was because the service was ok

Not good not bad. Just low average Mexican fare. Chicken and beef repurposed in infinite mediocre versions. Nice decor

The BEST Mexican food I've had in years. So many sauces to choose from. Our waitress brought us a sample of them all. Can't wait to go back.

The service was horrid. Once I was seated I had to wait near 30 minutes before the host came back over to me to ask if I had been served yet. They then took my drink order and went to find the waitress. When the waitress finally came over to my table she was rude and smelled of cigarette smoke... More

The Food was pretty good, no wow involved. Typical Tex Mex restaurant portions are huge, an interesting selection of sauces to choose from to top entrees. Chicken Fajitas were good.

We drove down to Gainesville today just to eat at Chuy's. We've been to the original Austin location and were very excited to go to Chuy's in Gainesville. We were not disappointed. The food is fantastic and our waitress, Dakota was wonderful.

Great atmosphere and food. Kids were happy with the childrens menu and we were thrilled with a couple of tasty cocktails and fabulous tex-mex.

I had been to a Chuy's in Texas; was excited to try this one. The food was good. The salsa and chips were great! The taco salad was a huge disappointment. Service was good. Decor/atmosphere is fun and kitchy. Menu/selection is big.

Ok, this is our home away from home. The kids and I go at least a few times a month. Try the Creamy Jalapeno dip when they bring the chips. A secret not on the menu-DIVINE! I have never tasted something I didnt like! My favorite restaurant. We have traveled hours just to go here!
