I had a class for work that was held nearby & met up with a friend of mine afterwards & decided to try it out since we were in the area. Nice menu for a Mexican restaurant & service was good.

My family and I love authentic style Mexican cuisine. This restaurant was not the best for that. We ordered steak and chicken fajitas. The chicken was dry and the beef was tough. The salsa and creamy jalapeño sauce were both good on the chips. The best part was the hand made soft tortilla shells. No mild sauce for my child.... More

Tried a variety of items and everything was very good. The diced salsa and spicey white cheese dip are heavenly. Nothing fancy in decorations but well worth the visit.

Quick, fast service with food consistently awesome as always. Oddly located in a Kroger strip mall, but that seems to be how the new non-Texan ones are. Yum!

Great margaritas and the salsa is good. Everything else is like fast food. There are better Mexican restaurants around town.

Large servings, great service and awesome food. The hatch sauce is hot and flavorful. The server was on top of the drink refills.

I had the Comida combo and my wife had the Chuychanga. Both were GREAT. The enchiladas were authentic. Not the commercial run-of-the-mill crap you may be used to. REAL enchilada sauce. The taco was good and the flautas were how they're supposed to be. The Chuychanga was amazing. Many around us had ordered it and we found out why. The... More

40th birthday party. 16 people. The organizer for the group personally drove to Chuy's the day before to ensure they could handle our group size. We arrive the night of the party and are told they could not accommodate our group. The manager hid and left it to a manager in training to tell the family that they are unable... More

Liked the restaurant decor alot. Service was good. Our party enjoyed the Steak Fajita's and Macho [Pork] Burrito (Special Item available Sunday's Only). Don't miss the Tres Leche dessert - real treat and worth the price.

Thank Mark S
