Unbelievably, Chuy's was started in 1982 by two imaginative guys in Austin, Texas, using a dirt parking lot, on which stood a run-down abandoned building-warehouse, with an outdoor restroom! According to Texas legend, the primary interior "design" of the original Austint site was a $20 oversized velvet painting of Elvis, which became the centerpiece for prompting spontaneous donations from customers...

While I live several hours away, when I have business in the area I make a point to stop by this Chuy's. The staff is always pleasant and food great.

We enjoyed our visit to Chuy's. Getting nearby parking can be challenging but we were lucky to get a spot close by. Seated immediately on a Wednesday night around 8:30 p.m. They have a vibrant bar area separate from the dining area, but you can order from the full menu in the bar if you choose. Unlimited chips and salsa... More

Late night dinner and the place was still great - except for obnoxious OU fans .. not the fault of Chuys! Hot spot but always nearby parking. Outdoor and indoor seating. Love everything I've ever had.. create your own enchiladas, Elvis chicken, child relleno, tacos, hatch anything! Excellent happy hour options too!

Good food...large portions....reasonable price. It tends to be busy and loud. Some of the dishes that were supposed to be mild were pretty spicy

Great Tex Mex, Delicious fresh chips, nice happy hour food bar with Queso, meat and chips. Had a delicious stuffed avocado special for dinner. Fresh salsa. Statue of Elvis overlooks all the activity. Found out after if you bring in a picture of your dog they will add it to the wall and you get a free appetizer. Tasty margaritas

Was FANTASTIC. The food, atmosphere, and waitress couldn't have been better.. I had the chicken fajita 'big as yo face' burrito with hatch green chile sauce and WOW.... There aren't usually leftovers on my plate but I had to ask for a to-go container. I have loved Chuy's for34 years now. Consistently delicious!
