Do not eat here. The food is so bland. I️ ordered the fajitas and my son ordered the enchiladas and both were terrible. I️ don’t know how this place remains in business. Don’t waste your time going here

We ate here on our way to El Paso. All of us enjoyed our food. The place has an interesting history and has been serving food for quite sometime. It is not related to large and famous Tex-Mex chain. Unfortunately, the place was quite dirty....More

We stopped at Van Horn in the way to Marfa from Arizona. We heard Chuy's was the place to eat and we were not disappointed. The pace is slow. The place is comfortable. The food was delicious if you like Mexican.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Chuy's. The decor is very interesting because of the connection to John Madden. They have a large and varied menu. The food was delivered hot on a heated plate, which we appreciate. They were out of one menu item...More

Great Mexican Food Just what I wanted! A non-chain restaurant and Mexican menu! The decor was nice and the lighting suitably dimmed but not too dark. The menu was large but only had one pork meal, I chose that. The servings were generous and the...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.
