My husband and I stopped at Chuy's after a day of sight seeing at the Guadalupe Mountain National Park. I loved the food! It was true home made Mexican food. I am very picky about my Mexican food since growing up on the border and this food was outstanding. Not only was the food delicious but the service was just... More

First off...great service...fast and friendly. 5*. Food 3*. Very good green chile but more like a stew with potatos. I DO NOT LIKE PREMADE CORN TACO SHELLS...unless I go to Taco Bell. Good restruant tacos need shredded meat cooked in a corn tortilla. This taco was not. Preformed taco shell with ground beef. Enchalada was ok...chicken a little bland. Beans... More

Casual, sports decor. Uniquely painted walls. Standard mexican fare. The gordita was small but tasty, in something like a corn biscuit. The best thing was,the green chili. It was very meaty .

On a recent trip to El Paso we stopped in Van Horn and went to Chuy's. I thought of this place was the place John Madden always talked about. It was pretty good. Good tacos. Good enchiladas. Really tasty chips and salsa. It will be a future stop. I was really surprised.

After a long day of driving, we pulled into town and thought we would give Chuy's a try once again. In the past, we have had hit or miss experiences here, but we do enjoy the super casual family atmosphere and the food isn't bad. Well this time it was excellent. We were greeted, seated and served quickly. The place... More

Well if your driving in south west Texas and get hungry this wide spit in the road has a good little Mexican Food place. Food was ok I would have expected more from this place , but it was still pretty good.

I saw it online and thought it was part of the chain but it's not. However, it is very good. We got there just as they opened and I couldn't get the first two things I asked for; the soup wasn't ready and the second item I asked for, which was on the menu, they were out of. Oh well,... More

This place gets it's fame as being a choice stop for Madden the sports caster. We were not impressed with food or service. Was ok but less than we expected.
