Our Stop! 1/3/2011

Chuy's is great! If your visiting San Antonio or looking for a new place to go for something different this is the place to try. We like the Carne Montada and I think it is the special on Thursday nights you have to try it. more

Great Tex-Mex with an Austin Nuance 3/22/2008

I love this place. The food is delicious. It has an idiosyncratic Austin feel. For example, they wrap their silverware in sealed wax-paper sleeves and the waitstaff is virile and youngish, attentive college types. Chips are light, not greasy, and you have a choice of salsas. I love the fresh cut salsa made with tiny bits of tomato, jalapeno, onion, etc. It's delicious and tastes fresh, organic. Ask for the ""Boom Boom"" sauce (it's a delicious cheesy dip used in some of their entrees). \r \r I always order the veggie enchiladas. Spanish rice is very good. \r \r This is great Tex-Mex food with an organic Austin nuance. Great margaritas. The patio is small, but if you chance to get there on a breezy evening, it's worth waiting to sit outside. Pros: Reliable Tex-Mex with a flair that will appeal to new or unfamiliar palates also Cons: Can get crowded, uncomfortable wait area more

Only place in town with Green Chili... 4/11/2007

I moved here from Colorado, and was very bummed at Texas' version of Mexican food--but then I found Chuy's!! It's okay, I can stay here now... they not only have the green chili that I love, but two different versions of it, regular and Hatch green chili sauce... the food is great, the service is great, the only bad thing is that there is usually a pretty big wait, no matter what night you go. I guess that they just need to open more of them! Pros: Green chili sauce, Great service, Great happy hour Cons: Almost always a Wait more

Great overall Texas experiance! 11/19/2006

The thing I like best about Chuy's are the Texas Martini's. If you never had a stuffed olive before you've got to try the Texas Martini. Too bad there aren't more Chuy's in San Antonio. You can travel all over Austin and run into one! This one is inconvinently located on a busy intersection near 281 and 1604. It's the worst to try to get there before 6 pm for happy hour drinks! The food, atmosphere, and drinks are well worth the wait. If you are looking for something different try the shrimp releno. They have a pretty good veggitarian selection too, try the guac soft tacos. I also recommend ordering the creamy jalapeno sauce when they drop off your chips, it's on request only! Pros: great food, drinks, and price Cons: heavy traffic area, long waits on weekends more

Good Mexican food that's a bit different. 11/2/2006

All the food I've had at Chuy's has been great. It's good Mexican food made with Chuy's own style that makes it unique. Margarita's are also excellent. Pros: Good food, good margaritas Cons: Often crowded more

Small portions, bland food 10/20/2006

Has good Mexican food if the only other place you've been to was Taco Bell... It is inexpensive but the portions were child-friendly. Pros: Nifty lighting and some couches in the waiting area Cons: Not worth the money more

Good Place To Eat 7/25/2005

This is a good place to eat if you like Mexican food. I ate two cheese enchiladas with rice and refried beans, and it tasted great! They let you choose from 5 different sauces, 2 mild, and 3 hot. The waiter was very polite, and the ambience was great. It had lots of palm trees inside(statues) :). Pros: Food, Inexpensive, Service Cons: Small Wait on weekend more

Wait is not bad! 5/21/2005

Chuy's converted the spacious waiting area to tabletops and I have not had a long wait since. This is my vote for best moderately priced restaurant in San Antonio. They do have the BEST top-shelf margarita. It is the Texas martini, sized for two and they will happily serve it with two glasses. I have never had a bad meal there. The cheese chili rellenos are the best. GOOD VALUE, GOOD FOOD, GOOD SERVICE Pros: Good Value, Great Food, Best Margarita more

ELVIS!!! 10/30/2003

My fiancee was soooo excited when she saw the Chuys sign when we just moved here. The Elvis Presley Memorial Combo is as good as it gets. The food here is in huge portions, atmosphere is laid back and fun. Margaritas are tasty. We used to eat at the ones in Houston all the time, and were scared that there were not any in San Antonio. more

Great food, lots of fun, long wait 1/2/2003

Chuy's in San Antonio stays true to the original in Austin, although the new 1604/281 location is a little less laid back, and smaller, which seems to lead to a LONG wait, any day of the week (On weekends, expect 1.5-2 hours wait during high traffic times). The food and drinks are excellent though, and the value is exceptional. Pros: Good Value, Great Food, Great Margaritas Cons: Small seating area, LONG wait more
