Travelers, right off I-35, this is an outstanding Tex Mex spot! I find all the Chuy's restaurants to be great! Their green Chile sauces are killer!

Chuy's is always a great meal! It had been a while since my husband and I went to one, as there's not a Chuy's in the town we live in. We're glad we found one while visiting Waco. We went on a Friday night so...More
