We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon and easily found seats at the bar straight away. Antonio was very personable behind the bar. Then house chips & salsa were very good. The soft tacos came out so quickly that we didn't have time to even...More

We've been to this restaurant several times as we always find the food really good. I'm not a huge fan of Mexican chain restaurants but fine Chuy's is above the norm. I had the steak burrito with the tex-mex sauce and she had the the...More

I went here with a group of coworkers for lunch, and while I understand that larger groups are a pain, they just weren't on top of things. Initially they had only brought out two baskets of chips, which we went through immediately. Instead of bringing...More

I really like the funky decor of the restaurant, but the food is nothing special. There are better Mexican/TexMex restaurants in the area. It definitely gets very crowded at times and the last time we ate here, our table was an awkwardly placed one. It...More
