Not your typical Mexican fare. Everything tastes fresh. Burritos are delicious as are the tacos. Try the crack dip or one of their specialty sauces. I would, however, avoid the tortilla soup - it was totally not what I was expecting and ended up being a couple big hunks of chicken and ball of cheese. The flavor was good, but... More

Chuy's jalapeno dip is a must-have! Be forewarned, it is addictive. The tortilas are hand made and excellent. I have had several items here and the chicken is my favorite. The chicken is tender and flavorful. The portions are big and can be shared if you are not a big eater. The staff is friendly and attentive. The restaurant is... More

We had lunch with our granddaughter . We were seated in the bar which I didn't like but I didn't say anything. I really wanted my granddaughter to see how nice the dining room was decorated. I did however say something to the waiter about being seated under a speaker. The music was so loud that we couldn't hear each... More

First of all. I love this place sells cool to shirts. Secondly, their food is awesome. The salsa is always fresh. I love the Baja tacos. I get one with fish and one with shrimp. They are amazing. Their tortilla soup is wonderful too! Love the way the restaurant looks and has a very pleasant atmosphere.

This has been one of my favorite restaurants in the past...but has slowly been declining for a long time...last night was an epic disgusting disaster. The hostess was irritated because i asked for a booth and slammed menus back in the holder and told me id have to wait a long time...even though booths were empty. It was too much... More

We enjoy to eat Mexican on occasion when we eat out however never tried Chuy's since it's a little bit out of our way and we always feel that no matter where we eat, Mexican always tastes like Mexican. We were... More

The food was very tasty and reasonably priced, it only took minutes to receive. Left full as a tick, it was more than enough food.

All my frienda have been telling me to try it. I am glad we did. The food was great. The portions are more than ample and the prices are fair. We had a party of 40-50. The service was great and accurrate. We did not wait very long for our food either.
