I've been to at least 2 Chuy's in Austin, TX, and 2 in Orlando, FL. This serves the same great menu, salsa, and the thinnest tortilla chips i've ever had (thin is a good thing). I tend to favor the chicken enchiladas but enjoy it all. You can watch tortillas being handmade. Staff here are very friendly. Price is fine... More

On my point of view, a good Mexican restaurant must cook a perfect guacamole. Yet, the one I tasted in this restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Mine is 2847838281 times better and I am not mexican. Nonetheless, despite being the Corona too expensive, the enchiladas were pretty nice and the amount of food was also correct.

I had the Elvis it was fantastic. The service was good but not exceptional. My wife had the crispy tacos she said they were good too. My favorite part was the refried beans. Their sweet tea was good.

We came on a weeknight and were seated immediately. Our waitress was great and gave us a creamy jalapeño sauce in addition to the salsa. Our food was out really fast and was delicious. The atmosphere is fun and I look forward to eating here again!

When I got here I discovered that it is a regional chain Tex-mex place. I was a bit disappointed but the food and service didn't disappoint: everything was fresh, flavorful and somewhat unique. The menu is pretty standard but each dish is more specific than the usual, both in description and in presentation. All the typical dishes were better than... More

Enchiladas were full of meat and sides were tasty. Sauces were great and service fast. Margaritas were good and chips and salsa were refilled constantly.

We love sit in the bar area. Our server, Alissa, is great and offers great suggestions that are sure to please. Fish tacos and fajitas to die for :-). Be sure to try the creamy jalapeño dip.

Enjoy the covered outdoor patio, dining with our small dog. We appreciate the ability to eat at a real restaurant when we travel. There are so few restaurants that allow a dog on the patio, & we can't keep our dog in a hot car! Not only do we like the fact we can have a relaxing meal with our... More
