Popular restaurant in Van Horn, TX. Food was good but terrible service, took forever to place my order and the waiter acted like you could care less.

Great food! Friendly staff. Interesting Don Madden and sports history! Mostly Tex-Mex food, not too spicy, not expensive.

Chuy's was on our rotation a lot while working out of Van Horn. It is a very typical TexMex place to grab food. Its packed full of random stuff to look at and such. The food was alright.

Service was a little slow, but the food was excellent, beer was cold and enjoyable. Good Mexican food and atmosphere. They advertise that John Madden eats there at least once a year and they have his favorite meal named after him.

Good Mexican food at a good price. Portions are large and the menu has an abundance of choices. The restaurant is old and kind of beat up but appears to be pretty clean.

Fairly decent Mexican food and the service was ok. Nothing to write home about. The chicken quesadilla was ok, liked that they used white cheddar. The decor is cluttered sports memorabilia. With the lack of choices in this small town, I might consider returning when passing through again.

We originally went to el captain, Boo! This has a nice family run setting. The prices were very reasonable and the food portion was more than bueno. We both ordered the gorditas and we liked the huge glasses of soda. The service was quick and very attentive. I see why John Madden likes the place and I wish there was... More

Chuy's Drive In - has plenty of seating inside the Restaurant. Has been in the same location since 1959. The staff takes excellent care of you the customer. Burgers and fries with a milk shake takes you back to the good old 50's
