We've enjoyed Chuy's locations in the Dallas metroplex and in Tyler for years and could not pass up the opportunity to stop for lunch at the original location on our drive back from San Antonio. We were not disappointed - the Soft Chicken Tacos plate...More

Excellent Mexican cuisine with plenty of variety and good value. Includes blue corn tortilla items such as enchiladas. Extensive menu and reasonable prices. Multiple locations around central Texas.

Chuy's is busy, expect to wait for a table even on Tuesday. Its worth waiting. I had the relleno - enchilada combo plate. Relleno was stuffed with shredded steak. Accompanied by a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom enchilada.
