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!!

Went to this restaurant without reading any trip advisor reviews since there seems to be no coverage for cell phone internet. We were sat down as soon as we got there, and drinks were brought to us quickly. I read the menu and it said the 1st bowl of chips and salsa were free but you had to pay for... More

The atmosphere was cool, but the service wasn't amazing. Next time we travel through the area we will try someowhere else. The #21 (the famous John Madden meal) was pretty tasty, but the Tacos Carbone were just okay. The kids meals were nothing more than Kraft Mac and cheese and frozen chicken nuggets. We never received refills on our drinks... More

Dined here 2 years ago. Was ok. Tried again today. Sat at table, took my child to the bathroom, upon returning to table, waiter asked if we were ready to order (we hadn't looked at the menu yet) I politely said no give us a few minutes. He returned about 30 seconds later so no, we're still not ready to... More

Waitress brought 1 tiny cup of salsa for 4 people. After she brought or drinks it was 50 minutes before we got our food. My wife asked for extra dressing and never got. Tea glasses were empty for 40 minutes. Abd I had to ask if order had even been put. Never again

As a Hispanic, I know Mexican food. The food was terrible. The best thing about the restaurant was the decore. We spoke to the owner and informed him of how bad the food was. He seemed interested in fixing it.
