I was taken here by a couple of locals who frequent Chuy's for lunch, and now I know why! The salsa especially was wonderful. While the meat was a lot greasier than I'd expect for a Mexican place, I still enjoyed everything.

Only in town for 5 days so I was on the hunt for great Mexican food. Unfortunately home (WA state) doesn't understand what good Mexican food means and it's been years since I've had anything worthy.. found reviews on Chuy's on TripAdvisor and took a shot at it, and so glad I did! My server Freddie was super-friendly, and in... More

Ate here for the first time and I will say that the food was very good! The chips and tortillas are made right in the restaurant and you can even watch them being made. Our server was awesome and recommended the sauces we should try on our dinners. The complimentary chips and salsa were warm and fresh. My kids both... More

Chuys is one of the best Mexican restaurant in San Antonio for its price range. The food is really nice and flavoursome and, contrary to many other places I have been to, it offers a balance between the food quality and the quality of the experience: it's not unnecessarily stylish, yet it has an authentic atmosphere. So is the food:... More

I've been to various Mexican restaurants throughout North East San Antonio. I've tried a lot of Mexican restaurants since I moved here six months ago. Chuy's so far has the best food. The tortillas are made right in front of you, so there is a good chance that the tortillas you get at your table were just cooked. The location... More

Really good food. You can't leave hungry! Robert was a great waiter. Fun atmosphere. There's a wooden bridge to cross from the parking area to the front.
