Good food with a Mexican twist

This is not Tex Mex but a fusion of Tex Mex and Mexican food with some unique dishes only found here. The hatch enchilada plate is a must try.

Great Mexican restaurant for lunch or dinner. Our attentive waitress offered us plenty of chips and salsa and refilled it every 5 minutes! Food was plentiful and tasty. Restaurant air conditioned plus there is a pretty outside seating area under the shade of the trees, but unfortunately it was too hot to sit outside when we went. Interior is themed... More

We chose to do take out this trip. The food was still warm when we arrived home. The vegetarian enchiladas were delicious. Try the special sauce with chips and pour over your food! Yum!

Excellent food and friendly service! The wait was under 15 minutes and the waitress was very friendly and attentive. They made one small mistake, but it was in my favor.

Whenever I arrive in San Antonio, I head directly from the airport to Chuy's Restaurant. The margarita's are cold and satisfying. I love the array of 4 different dipping sauces that comes with chips once you are seated. There's always an abundance of freshly prepared corn and flour tortillas. The menu offers lots of foods ranging from mild to caliente... More

These chains are indeed decorated very well. Lively & pleasant atmosphere. Very large lunch crowds. However......most of the young people who wait on tables, etc, do not have proper training. They don't get what makes a good wait staff......always seemed rushed & bored. Extensive luncheon menu with typical Mexican dishes, small portions, and minimum imagination. Taco salad was small &...

Went there 2 nights in a row--plus a 3rd time. Loved sitting outside-not as loud and it's gorgeous. Veggie Enchilada's are so good! Fish tacos are pretty ordinary, but still enjoyed them. Will always come back--food is well priced!

In a city of fabulous Mexican food, this is our go to place. The food and drinks are consistently delicious. The staff is always wonderful. It's just great food at a great price. Not sure we've ever left disappointed and we eat there at least one a month.

Stopped in on a Sunday to watch the Spurs game and grab food. We stood at the hostess stand for 5 minutes before anyone bothered coming over to seat us. The restaurant was not busy at all. Then we waited 10 minutes as waiters and waitresses passed by our table or were standing within 10 feet of our table chatting,... More

Chips and salsa are a great starter. Had the chicken enchiladas, delicious meal. Highly recommend if you're looking for good authentic Mexican food.
