Good Food, Good Drinks – Great place to relax and enjoy good food and drinks. OMG is creamy jalapeno sauce is awesome. Keep em coming!
I didn't order the Chewy Chonga! – Ok, so I stroll up to Chuy's in my cool Austinite ride after a long day of telling hot chicks to keep their hands off my beautiful car. (I hate oily finger prints on my waxed 7 layer, laquer paint job on my 74' Pantera) I order one of my favorite comfort food dishes, 'The Chimichonga"! I've had it a hundred times, a hundred ways and I know when a Chimi is done to perfection! After ordering the waitress finally brings me my order but at 10 feet from the table I could see trouble approaching. My heart sank, my stomach turned. My Chimi was all brown from over cooking. It reminded me of a big ape turd I had seen in a zoo once as a child and it scared the hell outa me! This was like a bad flash back for sure. The waitress left and I hesitantly cut into the thing. It made a sound I've never heard before! It was hard and it crunched like no Chimi should ever crunch. The ends are usually a little harder because of the thickness but shouldn't be brick hard. She came back later and asked if everything was ok and I told her no, everything was not ok. I told her my Chimichanga was way over cooked and she looked at me and said, "OMG, That's over cooked!" That's when the ugly truth sunk in. If I'm not a chef and I know what a good chimichanga should look like, and the waitress knows also, then why did the one person who should definitely know, (THE CHEF), send out a burned chimichanga and why didn't the waitress who knew it was over cooked bring it to me instead of tell them it's not fit for consumption, unless you're a dog. Well, that did it for me. You pay good money and they knowingly bring you pooh. Brown, crunchy, ape pooh. As if they're hurting for money, please.
Amazing! – Delicious! So much fun to eat here, a must for anyone new to Austin!
great mexican – I have been a fan of this resturant since I first moved into Austin about 14 years ago. It is a simple resturant with no airs, great food, and good service. I have never been disappointed in my meal or my drink. With all these new places opening up, it is good to know that the old staples still exist and have far better food then they ever will - no one can compete with chuys
LOVE Chuy's! – I wish they would clean their window sills and blinds, but apart from that we are never disappointed at Chuy's.
This was the first time at this location. As always the food was plentiful and hot.
The jalapeno ranch dip is totally addictive as well as the queso. My favorite dish ever is the deluxe chicken enchiladas which is always filled liberally with good white meat chicken.
Waitress was a little ditsy, but hey - it's Austin! :)
Average food – I'm confused what the big deal is about. The food is good, definitely not great. We asked for their spiciest salsa only to find out we were already eating it (come on, this is Texas, we like spicy). Nothing was bad, but definitely not worth the hour wait. I think it's just the trendy place to go. There are plenty of restaurants with better, cheaper food and shorter waits.
Best in Texas! – I have been going to Chuy's ever since I was a little girl and I would recommend it to anyone who likes Mexican Food. It is one of my favorite resaturants! They're queso is amazing also!!! And it's not even that expensive.
Outstanding Food!!! – I've been eating Mexican and Tex Mex for over 40 years in Houston, Dallas Ft. Worth,, San Antonio, Austin and a lot sof smaller towns all over the state. I'd rate Chuy's in the top 5 of all of them. The food was great, service was outstanding and although the price was a couple of dollars more than I normally pay at the majority of the other places the quantity was also greater. I was surprised at how busy it was at 4:30PM on a Friday but we didn't have any problem getting a seat right away.
