Stopping in Van Horn we always take a few days to see the surrounding area and to enjoy the local cuisine. One of our favorites is Chuys. If you like your food hot hot hot, try the Madden Special hot, or if you like it cooler, try the Madden special minus the hot pepper. Have eaten there many times and... More

After 8 hours on road we were pretty hungry. We were trying to make it to El Paso to eat, but decided we could not wait. I was thinking that we would have to be happy with a stop at Wendy's, but instead we decided to check out Chuy's. We were pleasantly surprised to find that their food was very... More

We have stopped here many times going cross country. It gets a bit more shabby each time. My flat enchilada plate was good and being a spicy freak, the red sauce was very good. My wife being a vegetarian, decided that she doesn't want to stop anymore. The staff were friendly, but they need to update the grubby rug.

Traveling cross country to visit family in Arizona after a long drive your options are Van Horn or another two hours to El Paso. Van Horn is a very small town and few eatery options are available. We tried to find a couple on TA but were closed or were inaccurate. This little Mexican place has been a fixture here... More

We were traveling through and stopped in Van Horn to eat dinner because we use to travel through here all the time. We stopped at Chuy's knowing it was not related to the chain but from the road it appeared to be the busiest place in town. The food was awful and definitely mass produced and arrived in a can....

While passing through Van Horn, we stopped at Chuy's for dinner. While the facility is a bit humble, the service was friendly and the food was very good. While considering the menu, they served very good chips and salsa. I had never had salsa textured like puree but it was very flavorful and a bit spicy. We both enjoyed our... More

This was our second visit to Chuy's Restaurant and we were not disappointed. Chips and salsa were excellent as were or meals. Service was great even though we arrived shortly before closing. Will certainly eat here again when passing thru Van Horn..

The food isn't bad......it's OK and just about average, but certainly nothing to write home about. The service was very basic and probably not worth tipping! There aren't many restaurant options in Van Horn (unless you count fast food options which I don't!), so I'd go here again if I needed to......but it wouldn't be close to being a highlight... More

We arrived the four of us, hungry. No one greeted or suggested seating so we sat ourselves down. The atmosphere was typical of the west and Chuy's. Laid back. The waiter came right away but we had no idea want we wanted so he left. Returning shortly, but we still had no idea what we wanted. He left , not... 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.
