“Heavy dishes, standard Tex-Mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

A family member had heard good things about Chuy's and wanted to try it when it opened in Gainesville. It was good, but nothing special. To us, it was clearly your heavy chain-restaurant Tex-Mex cuisine. Rich, unhealthy and not particularly unique. We didn't dislike it, but it's not a place we'd rush to enjoy again. However, the service was nice and decor was fun.

“The price is right!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We have dined here on several occasions. The food is always fresh and the service prompt. The decor is fun and crowd lively. The food is very reasonably priced and I would suggest you go with a big appetite as portions are generous. A real bonus is the happy hour free nachos. Hard to find anything for free these days.

“Best Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Traveling thru Gainesville, we found a Mexican Restaurant we have never heard of. It was funky and fun looking so we gave it a try. I must say it is the best Tex/Mex food I've ever had. Big portions, really nice people, great service and unbelievable food. If you like Mexican, don't miss this place.

“Ok food, terrible service, good devote, way too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

No lunch menu you pay dinner prices. No waiting yet our waitress couldn't keep our waters filled or our chips coming... food disappointing. Won't be back.
