WARNING!!!! Be very cautious shopping in Knox Village. They have a TOWING SCAM going in the area. A spotter sits in his car in the area and watches for naive shoppers who park in parking areas that are not clearly marked. They tow a number of vehicles down about 2 or 3 blocks and then take them all to City Vehicle Storage. I parked across from Chuy's restaurant and shopped in the area, but did not go inside Chuy's . The sign said "Do Not Park Here and go in Chuy's or you will be TOWED." It cost me $350 to get my vehicle on Thanksgiving weekend. The worst part was dealing with the disgusting, very large, chain smoking, truck driver looking woman at the tow yard.
Good Food, Good Service – I have loved Chuy's for years. It is a great place to eat. If you have family in town, it is a must. Always fun and great food.
New Mexico Tex. Mex – order anything with green chilies.
1Amber2004 – I liked it, pretty good food and solid service. Try it!
This is an Excellent Mexican Restuarant and not your usual Mex-Tex – My wife and I made our very first vist to this restuarant and enjoyed the visit. We decided to visit for the lunch period to avoid the crowds and parking problems that friends told me was common during the evening hours. A young lady met us and guided up toward a back room. We told her we did not want to be sitted in the bar area nor in the patio area and preferred a booth. We were giving a booth in what they called J area.
A young man named James was our waiter and was very knowledgeable and helpful. We were glad because we found this was not our usual Mex-Tex restuarant. He brought us chips (too thin but tasty) and a green looking salsa. My wife asked for ranch dressing instead but I was game. The waiter informed me that I could try more than one salsa since they have four kinds. I tried two and both were good and spicy. Neither anything like I get a El Chico or Pancho's. He had to give us some advice about about our entrees also. I am glad he was so helpful. My wife got both the cheese enchallas and a relleno, both were excellent except the relleno was a little overcooked on the bottom. I had the chicken encellas(pardon my spelling) and it was superb. The waiter was very attentive although the room was soon filled to capacity. His efforts were rewarded when it came time to pay with a very good tip added. He earned it. We enjoyed this meal.
Could have been better – I went to Chuy's last night for a friend's birthday. I will not complain about how long it took to seat us, because there were quite a few of us and we needed at least half of us there before we were seated. That is understandable. The atmosphere for the type of place Chuy's is, works just fine. It is not my style of restaurant, but I understand the theme, and it works. The staff are great, and very accommodating. They were very nice, very attentive, and definitely on top of everything. My problem is with the food itself. Being born in TX, I love Tex-Mex, Mexi-Mex, Texican, and just plain Mex. Whatever you call it, I love Mexican inspired food. I was very disappointed in the salsa. It tasted as if someone had poured and entire salt shaker into the small bowl. Thinking that this was possibly the case, I tried another bowl. It was just as bad. The fresh flavor of the produce in the salsa was ruined by what boils down to oversalting. The guacamole I had high hopes for suffered from the same problem. When my main course arrived (the chicken tacos), I have to say, the plate was beautiful. I cleared the plate and it was very good. If some of the salt had made it from the salsa to the tacos, I think the meal would have been a great one.
Best Tex Mex!! – I have just moved here from Cali....and everyone at work has been telling me to try Chuy's. I went and the Margaritas are the best I've tried and the food is awesome. The cheese and chips are tasty and foot delicious. You must like spicy food! The Chicken Rellenos are the best with cream sauce!
Best Fajitas – i have never liked beef fajitas in my life before chuys tex mex. I hate how other beef fajitas are so tough but these were so tender and juicy not to mention my food came out it like 10 minutes MAX. I waited about 20 min to be sat down but the food came out speedy quick. Amazing salsa, amazing speed, amazing food. best tex mex I have had!!
Great Shrimp Taquitos... – Friday's daily special is delicious! This is a great restaraunt and a local favorite. Be sure to stop in and try a margarita.
austin transplant makes good in big d – maybe i'm biased from living in austin for 7 years, but this is one of my favorite tex-mex restaurants in dallas. if you're hungry, the stuffed sopapillas (not a dessert item) are definitely the way to go, but the burritos and the enchiladas are not to shabby, either.
