The cafe was clean and the service was both friendly and prompt. They had many American and Mexican dishes on their menu and the pricing was reasonable.

We had combo platters and it was all perfect. I had Taco ,Enchilida and Empinada. Good rice and beans and a bonus pile of tender beef cubes in a yummy gravy.

We have been going to Chuy's every time we pass through Van Horn, usually twice a year. I submitted a review in 2013, touting the excellent Mexican food. Sadly, I no longer wish to recommend the place to my fellow travelers. It seems that each time we return, the food is worse, and the service continues to decline. We visited... More

I was pleasantly surprised by their green chili sauce and the chili con queso that we ordered as small sides!! They were incredible! I ordered Huevos con Chorizo and the meal tasted like... More

We had reservations for a hotel in Van Horn. I'm sorry but this is a sad little town. Just depressing. Went to Chuy's for lunch. The interior is cluttered and unappealing. There is lots of evidence that hygiene is not their #1 concern. The food was just average Mexican. The owners were friendly. It seems like it is well-liked but... More

We spent the night in Van Horn on a Sunday and found out there are not a lot of options for dinner on Sunday evening. This was our first time to eat here and overall it was a good experience. Our food was above average, can't say the same for the service, but it was okay. I don't exactly understand... More
