Texas isn't a stranger to larger-than-life personalities. The Elvis Presley-covered walls at lively Chuy's fit in perfectly. Memorabilia and photos of The King blanket the Austin chain, known for its ... Read more

Tex-Mex at its best, loved their chicken enchiladas with their home made Tex-Mex sauce.

This was such a cool little spot in Austin! I'm a huge fan of Mexican food and this food was really tasty. I had some tacos and guacamole and they were really delicious. My favorite part of this place though was the decor! It was very quirky and really embodied Austin!

A safe bet for good Tex-Mex. In terms of cocktails, I hope you’re not looking for anything more than a good margarita.

My family and I visited the Chuy's location in Lexington KY approximately two weeks ago. The Server was AMAZING! The food was great, until I bit into my food and what I thought was a chicken bone lodged in the roof of my mouth. I pulled it out covered in blood and discovered it was a piece of razor sharp plastic ! The server immediately notified the "Manager" who came to the table and basically insinuated I put it there !! "We don't have anything like that in OUR Kitchen" she left to investigate, we never saw her again! Free food I could no longer eat and dessert. PER OUR SERVER, The said object turned out to be a broken piece of a sour cream bucket !! I wrote a nice, unthreatening letter of concern to corporate...still have not received a response! VERY POOR BUSINESS PRACTICE!! Good thing for them I am not 'SUE HAPPY"

The service was excellent and the price of the food wasn't as much as I expected it to be.

So very delicious. This is one of the few Mexican restaurants that stands out as a place I would go to time and time again. The building has character and the food is amazing.

The steak burrito is next level. There's a location 10mins from the house in the same shopping center complex as Whole Foods, Costo and Torchy's!

Best TexMex you can get!...Don't forget to ask for Creamy Jalpeno sauce with your chips and meal...Careful, you'll get addicted!

Had the scratch wild burrito. One word, excellent. Funky, colorful vibe, walking distance from Zilker Park and Barton Springs.

You can easily find better Tex-Mex in some hole in the wall places in Austin (that aren't chains) if you just do a tiny bit of research. But you can't beat their happy hour or this location - right by Zilker Park.

We love all the locations around Austin, but this is our fav. Bottomless chips and the Elvis theme make this a great place for kids. The prices aren't bad either.

Chuy's Restaurant serves classic Tex Mex fare. The food is great and the decor is festive and colorful. It's also a mini-shrine of sorts to Elvis Presley. With the tasty meals and lively atmosphere, Chuy's is a great place to go for a dinner out with friends.

I have always been a big fan of this Chuy's location because the food is great, the hub caps on the wall are cool, and they offer free salsa and chips while you wait for your table. Mints on the way out.

Amazing. Food. Go on Thursday and try the daily special - stuffed avocado!!! Queso is also delish! Kitschy decor and friendly staff make this place a MUST. Bonus - it's located right by the Umlauf Sculpture Garden - be sure to stop there for a lovely walk around the open garden.
