We were on a road trip and were staying in Van Horn for the night before continuing on. Stopped here for dinner. Food was good and service was tops. Would recommend

Wow! The food and service was great! Husband had #1 with enchilada, taco, gordita, rice, and pinto beans, and I had the gordita plate. Yummy! Our meals were $21 plus tip. We'll stop here again!

We were REALLY hungry after a long hike. We ordered the chicken enchiladas to go as we were cold and dirty. We substituted extra rice for the beans they come with. They were tasty and fresh. I only give it a 4 of 5 because I don't feel I know enough about it to give it a 5.

Bland over saturated underwhelming food. For all of the hype this place was a huge let down. Cant really call it texmex it was too boring for that, maybe some out of state folks might tihik it is good.

We were anxious for some good Mexican food since we live in the east. Their restaurant was very charming from the road. The interior was also cute. The food was good but not the service. Our server must not of wanted to be there. About all she did was take our order and bring our food. Never once came to... More

We really enjoyed the food, and we're excited about the fish tacos. It was delivered promptly, flavored well, and piping hot. They did seem to be understaffed or not expecting a 7 PM rush. I had to walk over and ask for a refill twice, and on the second trip took the cups with me. They did apologize for the... More

I wish everything wasn't so spicy. I had the salad and it was fresh and crisp. Great after camping for several days. The burrito looked great but was to spicy to eat after one bit. Great place if you like spicy. I would come again to try their non Mexican food. Staff was friendly and service was fast.

As someone who loves, has grown up with, and cooks authentic Mexican food, I am always happy to enjoy new flavors at Tex-Mex places along my road trips. I had been craving enchiladas all day, so we stopped at Chuy's in Van Horn for dinner around 7pm. There were plenty of tables so that we were not crowded by the... More

It was really sad to be called a Mexican restaurant. We only wanted nachos and a beverage. First it is small and not well lit. They have a fish tank that was dingy with white calcium deposits on the tank's glass. That should have been a sign of attention to detail. We waited a short time and was seated and... More
