“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

Jalapeno ranch a must.
Queso a must.
Chuy's Special: stacked chicken enchiladas with queso instead of ranchero sauce. The most delicious meal....add guac and sour cream on top...so goooood!

“Ginormous portions a specialty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

Always crowded on weekends. Average food, with the exception of the Tortilla Soup, which is above average. Fun t-shirts for sale, popular at Happy Hour. The Mexican martini is a great value.

“Fun and worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

So very many great places in Austin, so giving this place a 5 is somewhat of a stretch, but ...
Really great TexMex place for beverage, food, excitement, fun.
Have never had a bad meal here, so with that, just ask your waiter what might best fit your taste buds, and go there.
Chips and Salsa a definite requirement as a starter.

“Creamy Jalapeño!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

While I'm not a fan of Tex-Mex this place always attracts me for its creamy jalapeño dip. It is absolutely addicting and incredibly difficult to stop. The place is fun and a great place to have lunch or dinner and to enjoy a nice mexican martini!

“Typical Tourist Trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

Chuy's is your typical Austin tourist trap. The food is standard tex mex fare, and not the best in Austin, but not the worst either. That being said, the margaritas are pretty darn good. I highly recommend them.
