I and my husband were looking for a good Mexican restaurant in the vicinity of our hotel. I found the Chuy's reviews and their menu and decided to give it a try. Boy did I ever pick right! The decro is a little unusual in that it is somewhat Mexican, portraits and pictures of dogs. I ordered the Chica Chica... More

Not only was the food outstanding (the Thursday special tamales were fire) but the staff were so friendly. Our waitress welcomed us to Knoxville & gave us a free tres leche cake. Soooooo gooood. Will return.

Spilt our party up between two tables to give us room. Great service. Food was good. Just a little pricey for what you get.

We had a great lunch with a small group of 8 people with delicious drinks and even better food. The chips we're light and crispy albeit a little salty. The jalapeno ranch was quite addictive! The pico de gallo is fresh made. Huge portions, so come hungry or enjoy the leftovers. The tres leches cake was monstrous and devine!! Definitely... More

This is a fun restaurant with good affordable food. You don't need to worry about compromising any of your dental work with the chips and salsa, as the chips are on the thinner side, yet sturdy enough to hold a delicious scoop of salsa. Try the creamy jalapeño sauce. Just be sure to ask for a straw with it, because... More

When our party arrived the restaurant was packed and we were told we would have an hour+ wait. We accepted the idea expecting there was no way it take so long. The waiting area emptied at least twice and we were still waiting. At the 50 minute mark, my son spotted and grabbed a large booth in the bar area... More

Good food, but heaven forbid you have a party of five because they will refuse to combine two tables to seat you. Over an hour wait because there we couldn't be seated until the other party of seven left. Talk about flawed logic!! How many parties came and went in an all but empty waiting area while we waited. Amateur,... More
