“Great Appetizer Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

Open 4:00-7:00 and has beans, chips, salsa, ground taco meat, and queso - yummy! Construction next door doesn't cramp the style.

“A bit pricey...but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

Last night 6 of us were seated fairly quick at 7 pm and got our orders within a reasonable time considering the place was crowded. Always innovative dishes on the menu and their original creamy jalapeno dressing is a must. The Tres Leche cake shared by 2-3 can top off a meal quite nicely. Decent happy hour also. A great family dining experience.

“Good Food, Service Rude”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

With about 100 miles left in a 400-mile trip, my wife and I deviated a few miles out of the way to eat at Chuys as she had eaten there previously and loved the food.

On Feb. 16, 2014 at 3:15pm we were seated in a booth in the bar area. The place was about half full, but it still took quite a while and asking on our part to get a menu and glass of water. The guy waiting on us told us several times he'd be right with us.

His demeanor, his voice tone, his attitude--all told us we were an inconvenience to his afternoon. When it came time to pay he said, "Sorry," several times, but didn't say what for. Never in my life had I ever been disgusted by poor service as I was on that visit.

Conversely, the food was pretty good, but I would be hard pressed to sit through rudeness like that again...anywhere.

Maybe the waiter was having a bad day or personal problems; I get it, but with a new restaurant opening next door, the manager better be careful his staff doesn't run off customers.

Love Chuy's! I eat at them wherever we go, and the one in Lubbock is no exception. Delicious food, and great customer service.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

There are so many other places to get tex-mex that is much better than here...and I'm sure their service is better too! A big disappointment here.
