“Best Tex-Mex in Austin”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

I prefer interior Mexican food, but if I need a Tex-Mex fix, Chuy's is where I go. It has the most flavorful food and I love the specials they have periodically, like during the Hatch green chile season. Their food is spicy and delicious.

“Always popular”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

When we are in Austin we love going to Chuy's. It is a family favorite....but it is also the favorite of lots of others, so be prepared to wait.

“Loud atmosphere, tasty food”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

The outdoor seating area is very nice. Indoors is quite loud-- you have to speak loudly even when addressing others at your table. It's a fun vibe, and the food is yummy.

“Oldie, but goldie...”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The place is well-worn, but the wait staff and food are very good to excellent. Well worth a try, for sure... The restrooms were clean as well as the rest of the place. You'll find an excellent menu at very reasonable prices.

“Great Tex Mex! Delicious tortillas!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I go to Chuy's over and over again. Why is that, you ask, well, I'll tell you. Homemade tortillas. Oh, and the jalapeno ranch. And the salsa. And the margaritas. Hmmm.... that's many reasons, well, they're all great reasons to go and that's not even the main entree! I have many favorites, so you'll just have to go to find yours!

This place is noisy, so I don't feel out of place with my kids there, and there is a lot to see, so they're busy looking at the walls and ceiling while we are waiting for food, which is always a reasonable amount of time. If you want to sit outside when the weather is nice, you can expect a longer wait, but otherwise, the hostess moves people through fairly efficiently at all the locations. I highly recommend Chuy's for a fun & delicious Tex-Mex experience!
