“What a fantastic surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

I stopped at this place at the last minute because I had heard such rave reviews from my hotel coworkers. This place is NOT to be missed! Extremely reasonable/affordable authentic tex mex. I consider myself an expert on all mexican american food and this place hits all the right dishes. You must try the queso! Do not miss the chili rellenos. The beef is amazing. And if God is smiling upon you, you will hit this place between 4 and 7 for the happy hour queso bar. The service staff is extremely attentive and friendly without getting in the way. The employees are happy which means a lot to me! The owner and manager are so friendly and welcoming. Its still fun and loud without breaking the bank! Musics great! Decor is kitschy and fun! Elvis will be waiting for you out front.

“SO excited to finally have Chuy's in Orlando!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Have eaten at Chuy's many times in Knoxville, TN when we travel and was SO happy to hear that we had one in Orlando! Of course I made a beeline for this new location the very next day!! The chips and salsa as always were awesome! Make sure to ask for the creamy jalapeno dip - IT TOTALLY ROCKS!! My husband's favorite is the Elvis combo and it never dissapoints. I had the chicken tacos and they were HUGE - had to take one home because of course I coldnt stop eating the chips and salsa. My frozen swirl margarita with sugar on the rim was so delicious. I CANT WAIT TO GO BACK!!

“Amazing service, great food, fun atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Stumbled upon this newly opened restaurant and had a fantastic experience there! It was a Friday night so it was busy and loud but the staff were very efficient and fun to watch (there were 18 waiters and busboys all dressed in different colorful Chuys t-shirts). The restaurant has 2 very differently decorated rooms and a small room with a large window where you can watch people making tortillas (neat!) The food was awesome and reasonably priced. Great location, great staff, great atmosphere and great food. Wish there was a Chuys in our city!

“Great Va;iue, Elvis Statue Outside and Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Newly opened, now in month two, Chuy's has worked through those dreasded opening days and settled in for a good experience. Food is fresh and good. The chips are fresh and light with fabulous fresh salsa. The margaritas are very good. The food menu has great variety and most dishes are under $10. Very good service and nice for kids and family. Outdoor seating available. Worth a visit.
