Chuy's is a chain that started in Austin, Tx and has been successfully spreading the Tex-Mex love to other fortunate states. While not quite traditional Tex-Mex, Chuy's is a funky blend of Tex-Mex with New Mexican style food. The boom-boom sauce is great on everything! When you are first seated and they bring the salsa fresca, be sure to ask for creamy jalapeño sauce as well. There is quite a selection and it is all very good.

I am from Austin where Chuy's started. It's nice to be able to get a taste of home in Virginia. they have standard Tex Mex favorites. I like getting combinations of all sorts with tacos, enchiladas and chalupas.

If you go to the bar during happy hour, chips, salsa, and queso are free for everyone. Its an active bar scene with a younger crowd.

5 of us went on a Friday night for dinner. The drinks and chips were very good. The food also was good, but did take longer than average to receive. Our waitress was fun and kept drinks and chips full. Overall nothing special, but for an inexpensive Mexican restaurant I have no complaints.

If you are in the mood for mexican food and a good price I would keep Chuy's on your radar as I would go there again.

Food is average tex mex. It was not bad but not awesome. The atmosphere is lively though so usually enjoy my time here. Parking is getting worse even with the parking garage.

If you feel down, you need to go to the colorful décor of this restaurant. I do like the different sauces for chips, especially the warm hatch green chile sauce. My favorite meal is the Chicka-Chicka Boom-Boom. And at happy hour, they really do have a well-stocked chip bar. This is very family-oriented and I know that it is taking away business from the other Mexican restaurants in the area. If you want true Tex-Mex, eat at Tia Pablos' downtown or another restaurant.
