We found this restaurant looking for a Mexican restaurant highly rated and found Chuy's on the list. Fun atmosphere with a tribute to John Madden. I had to the #5 (fried egg on enchiladas) which was pretty good. My wife had the chili rellenos which...More

Sports bar decor. Portions were good sized, service was fast and food was tasty. Seating and check out were slow due to a rush of people but would recommend this place and would definitely eat there again.

We ordered the fajitas and cheese enchiladas. Both are just horrid ! I think the mom must have done the cooking in years past, but is not there anymore. If you like the worst Mexican food, then go here! It is better to stay away!...More

Mexican; I recommend the taco plate. This restaurant seemed popular with locals; many patrons seemed to know each other. It was recommended by the manager of Motel 6.

Main positive was that chips and hot sauce were good. We were met by female staff in timely fashion. Decor was pretty outdated but unusual-- had pictures of John Madden and his bus as well as memorabilia. Noticed a few old-time customers there. Everything went...More

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. Come on in sit, relax and enjoy our variety of Mexican and domestic beers, margaritas and drinks.
