Nice but not special

It was just okay, nothing special. They have the standard variety of Mexican dishes, prices are reasonable and they have drink specials also.

A lot of people stop at Chuy's while driving by on the nearby 10 freeway. They have a big sign west of town advertising John Madden naming it to his Hall of Fame after stopping there for a meal. The food at Chuy's is decent but nothing to rave about. I had their chili verde and the meat was diced... More

There are not a lot of places to eat in Van Horn if you want a drink with your meal. My chili releno was way undercooked (raw chili's) and had a thin runny quasi cheese inside. The beans and rice were bland. When I told the waitress this, she took my meal off my tab. So there's good and bad... More

Staying at RV park down the street at their recommendation we went. We got 2 appetizers and 1meal and a chili verde burrito side. Don't know what to say. No taste---but Over done with HOT sauce. Yes Mexican food is spicy but spice should add to the food not just put on to cover it. Nachos very soggy chips. Enchiladas... More

Small portions and bland tasting servings of the Mexican food we ordered. Have never seen such small flautas Atmosphere is un settling, big dirty, half full fish tank in the middle of dining area. Service was great but kitchen needs help. I'll skip this place in the future.

The food was a little bland and didn't match the description in the menu. They are certainly proud of their famous fans.

I adore this place, the food is authentic Tex Mex. I love the building's vibrant vibe. Where else can you see Jesus and John Madden on the wall in the same place. There is a little art/junk place next to it that has some very interesting pieces. Go and have a great adventure : )

We have eaten here many times when traveling West. The food is the best especially Brees special burrito. Usually the margaritas are wonderful. Tonight they were nothing but ice. We complained and they brought more margarita to pour over the ice so the drinks finally tasted like margarita. Then they had the nerve to charge us for an extra margarita... More
