Funky, Fun, Good Food and Reasonable Prices

This is a cool place. Very eclectic. The service was great and very accommodating on a super busy lunch hour (which is every lunch hour). If you don't want to wait for a table, come early or late.

Love the food. Chile rellenos were excellent. The server was friendly, but slower than molasses. Delicious

Service was slow and the food was terrible. I ordered the beef fajitas and they were dry and burned. Beans and rice had no flavor, just mush. Tortillas were cold.

I'll do the ad: If you've seen one Chuy's, you've seen one Chuy's. Decor is different at each restaurant, but can't ever remember being disappointed by the food. From the prickly pear margarita's, to great enchiladas, to the Elvis special, and hatch chile month; Chuy's delivers delicious Mexican food. This location is busy for dinner and weekend lunch. Easy to... More

I love this location here in San Antonio. The food is always good and fast and the service is the same way. I visit here at least once a year and always go back to the same location because of their food service and atmosphere I just wish there other locations out of state would be like this one I...

My husband and I go to Chuy's about once a week for dinner after a long week. The salsa Fresca is my absolute favorite! I judge all salsa by how much it reminds me of Chuy's. Beware, the Serrano peppers can make it a little too hot sometimes. The main menu is filled with tasty goodness also. I tend to... More

The food is great. However the our waiter tonight left something to be desired not once did he ever introduce himself and he just seemed rushed and put out. If we did not love the food we would find another mexican restaurant to go to.

I know this is a chain, but I had never been so it was a pleasant surprise. Atmosphere was really festive with palm trees,lit up like the Corona Christmas tree throughout the restaurant and very colorful furniture. Chips, salsa and jalapeño ranch dip were super and seemed homemade fresh. The margarita was made with fresh juice and the service was... More

Have ate here many times. Always good food and good service. Especially like their chips and salsa I usually get their 9-1-1 plate with Charo beans and Mexican rice. Service has always been good and prices are reasonable.
