This is a place made famous by John Madden who stopped several times and liked. the setting is simple with both indoor and outdoor options. The food is a standard mexican food, enchiladas, tacos, burritos, etc. It... More

Lives up to its' well deserved reputation for friendly service, good food at reasonable prices. Worth stopping in Van Horn if just to eat here. A John Madden favorite. Family owned and operated.

The chips and salsa were very fresh and good. I had 3 Chicken Taco plate and my husband had Gordito plate. Both our meals were above... More

First: nope. I didn't come here because John Madden came here in the 1980s, got hooked on the food, mentioned it and featured it and has come back once a year for the chicken piccada. I was on a long drive from El Paso to Seguin Texas. I live in San Diego so I go to MANY Mexican restaurants. And... More

First off, let me say I like John Madden. However; this is a restaurant and I came here to eat. If I'd wanted to worship at a holy alter, I'd catch the next flight to Jerusalem. Enough of the Madden worship. What happened to this place? The food is still ok but the service has went waaaaay downhill since the... More

I absolutely loved their salsa. I don't know what it was, added garlic or some added spices that made it soooo good. We had flautas, enchiladas and a combo plate and the food was great and portions definitely filled us up. The sweet tea did taste old though, they definitely need to work on keeping that fresh because it had... More

First of all, many restaurants have served B and C list celebrities all over the world. So, can we get over the John Madden worship already? Yes, many yrs ago he supposedly stopped in here. And for that matter, so did a lot of us. But, how about some focus on today? Boy, this place has gone gown hill. They... More

We stopped into Chuy''s for a very late dinner and were greeted by the owner Paul. The food was top notch, excellent taco's and super tasty salsa. It's a must see cheerful restaurant with a storied past full of Madden football pics and famous actors/singers that have stopped by for sumptuous Mexican. Sweet place!! Don't pass it over!!
