“I love this place -- try it.”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

Kinda funky and food is consistent. I always get the chicka boom, boom. Lots of white meat chicken and pretty spicy. Not all are as good as others -- i like the one of 35 north...and the original in Austin.

“Great tex-mex, as usual.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

i am a long-time Chuy's faithful, from my college days in Austin (late 1980s!). Things really haven't changed, which is just fine by me. Quality, inexpensive tex-mex (LOVE the blue corn tortilla chicken enchilada stack with egg!) and great margaritas! Consistently good and friendly service. And cool T-shirts to boot!

“A must for Mexican food lovers!”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

A friend and I stopped for lunch in June 2012. We almost did not go in because the parking lot was pretty full and we were traveling through. Once inside we were seated immediately and the server greeted us. The chips where very light and crisp and the salsa was fresh and very good. We both ordered the beef fajitas ($11.99) and where amazed at how quickly the food arrived at our table. The fajitas were served with flour tortillas that tasted homemade, rice and beans, and a bowl with guacamole, sour cream and pico de gallo. The portions were generous and the meat was sooooo tender and delicious. I would have rated Chuy's as excellent but the rice and beans were just okay.
