Just a short walk from the hotel, we had eaten in Chuy's in Houston so were optimistic. The food and service again were excellent. We hit happy hour so our beers and margaritas were cheap. Excellent and free chips and dip - don't eat too...More

Decided to go to Chuy’s for dinner this evening. Food was great as we dined on Chile rellano, chick-a-boom-boom and Cobb salad. Service was fantastic with excellent attentiveness, full glasses and chip bowls. Always a pleasure to dine here!

If you love Tex Mex these guys are one of the best. Hot flour tortillas are the best. Right off interstate 35 on south side of Waco. Kinda of hard to get too.

busy weekend in Waco so the wait was about an hour for our party of 10. Staff friendly enough. Service not bad but the food was just average Mexican. Wouldn't go out of my way to go there again.
