    Creamy jalapeño is really jalapeño ranch. Very good. I listened to every tip and was not disappointed at all. Strawberry margarita, tomatillo sauce and tortilla soup. Thanks everyone.

    With hubcaps, colored lights, and a velvet Elvis, this is Austin-style Tex-Mex at its tacky, funky best. It's almost always busy, but the creamy queso and chips is worth the wait.

    Came on the last day of their green chile festival. The chile relleno was seriously the best I've ever had. Albert our server was outstanding! Was a great experience all around!

    Had the chicken fajitas, taco al cabon (with chicken and beef) and their special/fav dish with boom boom sauce. All were great. Chicken very well marinated.

    There is no shortage of great restaurants in Austin, but Chuy's definitely has to be on this list for sure. Ask for creamy jalapeno dip to go with the chips when they bring them out." – Darryl Kotyk

    Has stayed true to its excellent self. Strawberry margaritas, creamy jalapeño for the chips and the number 9 lite plate rank high for me here. Love their complimentary chip/queso/salsa bar.

    The food was not great, and the neither was the drink I had. But the service was perfect! My waitress was awesome, the bar tender was awesome, the manager was even awesome too!

    Ask for the creamy jalapeño ranch (complimentary) with your chips and salsa. I also recommend the boom boom enchiladas--just a hint of heat and a lot of delicious!

    You have to be there for the Green Chile Festival, but it's really spicy! It's too hot for some people, so before you order a big plate, ask the staff if there is a way to try a little of it first.

    Had the house special steak burrito...soooo good! The chips and salsa are excellent too. Good portions, great prices, in a fun, friendly and quirky atmosphere. Service was great too.

    Chuy's is open late on Fridays and Saturdays 'till 11 o'clock! That's pretty late for a sit down restaurant. If you have an appetite, get the Big as Yo' Face burrito covered in creamy jalapeno sauce!

    Don't miss out on the creamy jalapeno. Also, this location can get packed around primetime, but they're open late! Swing by around 9 or 10 on a Saturday night for a very short wait.

    We thought this would be a great option before Parade of Lights...and so did everybody else. It was PACKED, but the staff members were efficient and friendly :)

    Possibly the best fish tacos I've ever had. Also get the jalapeño ranch dip with your chips.

    Everything was great here- stacked enchiladas, chicken fajitas, baba tacos, queso and salsa. Authentic and not overwhelmingly salty.

    Look for the headshot of El Vez. They have a photo booth but it's almost always broken. Put the little round sticker from your silverware on the ceiling in the back room. Also: try the sopapillas.

    I try queso at every restaurant that offers it, so far Chuy's and Torchy's are the only places with queso I will go out of my way for.

    Green chile sauces are not vegetarian sadly. But the rice and beans are! And you can get fresh roasted green chiles in anything.

    There are often long wait times on the weekend. If you are in town and just want to pay them a visit, try your luck weekdays between 2pm and 5pm.
