Chuy' has been around forever and has been a favorite of mine since my first visit in 1995. I love their complimentary chips and salsa bar, although one risks being full by the time the food comes out! Their Mexican martinis are the best in town, give one a try! I often order the southwestern enchiladas, which are stacked and made with blue corn tortillas, I always get them with a side of hatch chile sauce.

Everything is better at the original...except parking. Chuy's has perfected Mexican food scaled for multiple locations..if you've eaten at one, you know another will taste the same, excellent..that said, the nostalgia alone is worth making a visit to the original. Never had a bad meal at any Chuy's, ever...and this one is so retro it definitely has the market cornered on 'Austin hip', without trying!

Chuys is just perfect. Great food. Great service and beautiful place. It's so great I go there every 10 days. Always bring visitors there. I love the deluxe quesadillas and the 3 leches dessert.

Growing up in Austin, I think I have more creamy jalapeño ranch in my blood than the actual liquid itself.
Chuy's specializes in home made salsa, dressings, tortillas and all of their entrees are a true classic or a delicious twist on traditional Tex Mex.
The restaurant offers specials every day, as well as a free quest bar happy hour. And the bar is great too. All hand made drinks and a great drink selection, Chuy's is a must whether a local or visiting.

Large family group with just about every request, less sauce, skip the avocado, put the dressing on the side. Bring and extra plate. EVERY request was met with a nod. Recommendations by the wait staff turned out to be right on the money.
As to the soup, when the waitress said that the chicken was flavorful and hand pulled, well I'm not sure about the hands, but the flavor was like mom's and the soup was spiced perfectly, with just enough kick to make you smile.
