John Madden named our restaurant as the "All Madden Hall of Fame" in 1994. There are many other celebrities that have visited us and you can see pictures of them on our wall as you walk in. Every customer that walks in is a celebrity to us. Come on in sit, relax and enjoy our variety of Mexican and domestic beers, margaritas and drinks.

Stopped on our way out of the state for a last shot of Tex-Mex food. Should have just keep going instead serve cold, tasteless meal combined with poor service. Would not recommend as Taco Bell could prove better.

We were there on July 19, 2015 on the first leg of our trip to West Texas. I was traveling with two sports nuts that liked Mexican food so I decided this would be the place to stop. They were enthralled by the football paraphernalia & John Madden items. I ordered the enchiladas which were excellent but the chips were... More

Asked for chicken fajitas and was told they only do steak. Had to settle on chicken enchiladas. Also asked for whole beans Vs. refried and also was let down. Besides that meal was very good.

Adequate, forgetable food and dining experience. No specific complaints, but can not see what all the excitement is about.

Whenever we travel from east coast to Arizona, we always pick the southern route through Van Horne, Texas so we can eat a bunch of awesome Mexican food at Chuy's. NFL announcer John Madden made the same frequent stop. Guaranteed not to disappoint Mexican food lovers.

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.
