For being in the middle of nowhere, this place is amazing. I would drive there right now for an order of their gorditas. Seriously folks...little pockets of heaven.
It seemed to be a bit of an institution in a town that had obviously seen better days. So rather than going for the predictable fare offered by the local DQ and Pizza Hut, I decided to see for myself what Chuys was all about. Despite the considerable football and other sports memorabilia hanging off the walls and the very prominent big-screen TV, this is a family kind of place. I was treated very nicely by the staff.
It was either 1:30 or 2:30 in the afternoon -- I'm not exactly sure whether Van Horn observes Mountain or Central time -- and the place was doing a steady business.
As the name suggests, Chuys is best known for Mexican food, so I ordered my standard favorite -- chicken enchiladas with green sauce. The menu also features "American food" -- burgers and the like -- for those who prefer something other than Mexican.
My meal was, in a word, delicious. Just the right portion size. The price was also quite reasonable, at $7.95.
I also had the pleasure of speaking with the owner, Chuy himself, who reminds me an awful lot of my dad -- a true gentleman.
Should you find yourself on I-10 anywhere near Van Horn, I recommend that you forgo the fast food joints and head for Chuys. You won't be disappointed.
We had a great meal and I was so surprised to see Flat Enchiladas with an egg on top listed on the menu. Have made these myself for years but never have seen them on a menu. They were really good and a nice change from the usual Mexican meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Would love to know the Mexican name for this dish in case I am ever in a situation where I could "custom" order these.
Food was great, some of the best I've had. Seriously enjoyed this food.
One of the few spots on our Texas roadtrip other than fast food which we were able to stop at and eat. 3 delicious beef tacos and a good margarita which hit the spot. My friend got a quesadilla and also loved it. Looked over the menu and saw many other affordable options as well. Wouldn't hesitate coming back!
We had Fajitas, Quesadillas and a Kids hamburger. All of it was great. The only and best option in Van Horn other than the typical fast food.
Stopped to eat on the way to Arizona. Outstanding !!!! Loved looking at the all pictures of John Madden visit and making the Madden hall of fame.
I ordered chicken tacos and my friend ordered beef fajitas and the food was good. The chicken tacos were juicy. A couple of waitresses and the manager came to ask if we everything was alright. The service was good. We were offered a free desert for a survey for them to improve their dessert.
