We came to Austin to visit for two weeks. We have been to Chuy's 3 times and loved it every time! My favorite dish was the taco salad with ground sirloin (actually finely chopped good cut of beef) and the house dressing (a spicy ranch). Amazing! Very good burritos and enchiladas, as well. The waiters were excellent. If you have... More

This isn't our favorite Mexican food place, but the atmosphere is good for visiting with friends. The jalapeno ranch salsa is good; the standard salsa, not so much. The food is not as spicy and flavorful as I'd like, and much greasier, but it really is pretty good. Prices are reasonable, and the service is outstanding.

Chuy's is a chain, but they have Tex-Mex down very well.Most of the Chuy's restaurant I have been to have been really large, flashy places, but the restaurant on North Lamar in Austin is smaller, more cozy, and frankly more pleasant. Service was good, food was substantial and tasty. While Tex-Mex is what Chuy's is all about, they do have... More

Chuy's never disappoints!!! Creamy jalapeño dip is a MUST, don't forget to ask for it. There isn't anything on the menu that isn't great.

Having been to Chuy's in other Texas cities before, I had an idea of what to expect. This Chuy's has a crowded layout that I have never seen before. We called in a to go order to save some time.

We've lived in the Austin area for over 20 years now. We found Chuy's a long time ago. The food is wonderful and service is always excellent. The restaurant has a personality to it, that I love. We've been to all of them and they all hold that same standard. My favorite is Barton Springs.

I have been going to this restaurant but not at this location for over 20years and I am shocked. I just found out that their chili con queso is not vegetarian. They make a cheese dip with chicken stock. I am so surprised and disappointed. Usually one of my favorite things to eat and now not an option at this... More
