Worth the visit to check out the John Madden HOF. Service was great, but this is below average Tex Mex.

Probably worth the visit to check out the John Madden HOF, but the food is average at best compared to other Tex Mex restaurants in West Texas.

Ok, we made the stop in Van Horn, Tx to visit Chuys Restaurant solely because we read John Madden stops here. It really does not look like much when you pull in, and of course you see the sign “John Madden’s Haul of Fame”. Well,...More

People are looking for 5-star dining experience in Van Horn, TX? Seriously. It's been family owned and run for a very long time. The late Chuy's no longer with us but family members still are. If visitors will just relax, they will be treated wonderfully.

Small grungy place. Although servers were not rude, they were not quick or attentive. The food was not even as good as Taco Bell, and not much of it for the price

Chuy's is a family owned and operated Mexican restaurant that was opened in 1959. Come visit us. We offer homemade Mexican food, service, and great atmosphere. We have been called an oasis in the middle of the desert on several occasions.
Many famous people have eaten at our establishment over the years. John Madden named our restaurant as the "All Madden Hall of Fame" in 1994. There are many other celebrities that have visited us and you can see pictures of them on our wall as you walk in. Every customer that walks in is a celebrity to us.
